PowerSlacker: Racist subby troll is successful!


The fact that you think the headline is racist is pretty damn racist.

somedude210: Really? This is the one that got greenlit?

/The freight train, in an old colony of Spain, has not caused a lot of pain

Seriously. What's it take to get a Spain train derailment thread?


*boggle*

It takes just enough brain cells to find the headline from yesterday on the main page.

Ivo Shandor: Inflatable Rhetoric: I don't think benzene is used for this. Benzene is nasty stuff, would be problematic using the ethanol for fuel.

Benzene is added in some distillation processes to obtain mostly-pure ethanol. I don't know how common it is these days vs. less toxic alternatives.


I know refineries and petro-chemical plants use benzene for something, but I don't know what.  I've seen tanks of it.  Big tanks, millions of gallons.

I was also on top of a tank of Rohypnol, the date-rape drug.  I don't know what that's for either, but they had a lot of it.

Chemistry is hard.  I'll stick with electronics.

why do people HAVE to date rape when they're on Rohypnol.  why can't they just pass out and not be sexualy molested

In Argentina, the bottle of ethanol you buy at the drugstore says: "For minor cuts and scrapes, as a disinfectant, great for cooking."
