Does the embalmers union know about this intrusion from non-dues paying interlopers?

My brother converted our garage to a paint room to paint his truck. Lots of plastic and no ventilation. Lol. He survived.

There was yellow paint on the car in the next stall and on the floor.

He spilled the paint on the drive way. It was still there 20 years later. Lol.

LOL on Earl Scheib.
In the old days you could get away with inhaling a lot of paint.
These new 2 and 3 part paints are a whole ‘nother deal.
They go in but don’t come out.

Haha, if it was put out that inhaling large amounts
got you high, people would be overdosing on the stuff.

Say WHAT???

I thought it was Methanol

http://www.toledoblade.com/Nation/2014/01/14/More-in-West-Virginia-cleared-to-use-water-after-spill.html

“Complaints came in to West Virginia American Water about the odor and officials discovered the source was the chemical 4-methylcyclohexane methanol, which spilled out of a 40,000-gallon tank.”

“W.Va. official: People are inhaling formaldehyde”

And here I thought this meant that District 12
had come up with an alternative to sniffing glue.
