8 or so bees in my bonnet
[music |traffic]

saw a pick up truck parked up next to the funeral directors with a great big cylinder of sulphur hexaflouride (sorry no pic) in the back.
i guessed it might have something to do with embalming.
i was completely wrong.

ah, SF6. *big deep breath*
I take it has something to do with electrical systems/coolant for high wattage shit...right?
All I remember is that Flourine gas is some evil shit...of course, so is chlorine...and when the two of them bond with Sodium, we can eat them both. Wacky Chemistry. I learned something today. Thanks.

If you look here on another page of that "gas wholesaler" you linked to, you'll see something incredible:

A bottle of "AIR, purity: zero" selling for $70.00.

What the fuck?!

I think I saw nitrous oxide available there, too. Not sure on that, though.

i guess it probably means pollutant free.

but i dunno, maybe they fly over la or athens or london on a hot day
and collect zero quality air.
can't think why,
but someone must be buying it.
