Nitroglycerin

Post by FWiedner »

.

About a half-dozen times today I have hit one of these tiny while pills with a hammer.

This stuff doesn't work at all.

:cry:
Government office attracts the power-mad, yet it's people who just want to be left alone to live life on their own terms who are considered dangerous.

History teaches that it's a small window in which people can fight back before it is too dangerous to fight back.

Not enough Nitroglycerine in one of those pills to blow AOC's mind. Of course, a mouse sneeze could blow her mind 3 times over.

The other ingredients stabilize it so that it doesn't explode.

Dont know a thing about Nitro pills but when I was a kid my grandad and I set off a bunch of old dynamite that had sweated out the nitroglycerin. Maybe 18 sticks all told.

Right around 1000 posts you figure out not to drink while reading this forum. I know keyboards are cheap these days, but after you end up with a big enough pile of ruined ones the light dawns.

My father in law worked in the coal mines back in the early '50s when they were still shooting coal by drilling holes with a drill on a breast plate then loading the holes with a nitro mix. One of the older miners told him one time, don't drink any water till the dust has had a chance to settle. One day he didn't wait long enough. He said he ended up with a splitting headache.

Nitro does give you a headache. My Grandfather worked with dynamite for the WPA, also known as the outhouse gang, and threw away a pair of gloves every day. Uncle Homer said that one time some guy asked why Grandpa was throwing away a new pair of gloves. He said he wanted them. The next afternoon, that same fella was sick from a splitting headache.

One of my instructors was a Brit, he served in the Queens Military( not sure what branch) anyhow when guys wanted out of duty they would pull a bullet from a 303 and pull the cordite and place that on their tongue. Instant heart rate increase and headache to follow, the doctors finally figured out what they were doing.

In the days before artificial insemination were so prevalent, one rancher asks another, "you remember that white-face bull that I paid so much for ? Well he has seemed to lost his go-get-em."

The other rancher responds, "I've got a feed supplement that'll fix him right-up !"

The first rancher, doubtful and cautious, asks, "what you reckon is in it ?"

"Dunno, but it tastes just like gunpowder....."

I broke down an old .303 load once and failed to wear gloves while handling the cordite. The headache is not a myth.
