[DMCForum] Re: Antifreeze Tea Party

If you work on cars long enough you will eventually end up with a face
full of something, or wipe it with fluids on your hands, or eat with
them on your fingers, etc.

Interestingly automotive grease/grime is what I call "clean dirt"
because biological organisms (germs, viruses, etc) can't live in it.
Haven't you ever noticed that when you cut yourself on a car the wound
never becomes infected?

Gear oil does have a very distinctive odor, doesn't it. I've never
owned a cat actually, but what I thought was spilled gear oil in my
friend's truck turned out to be where the cat wet. Smelled identical.
Ever since I've equated the two.

But you've got to admit that burned transmission fluid smells worse.
