Re: what is this? ( see photo )

This thread should now be closed
and enshrined as an example thread.
Someone posts a query, someone
responds facetiously, several others
respond with suggested answers,
the OP determines the correct one
and responds, acknowledging the
facetious answer. Several post
answers after the question has been
answered and someone takes the
OP's post seriously and starts a new
query.

Almost perfect... Just needs a typo
or two to completely piss off
someone.

Just goes to show how the written
word can communicate and confuse.

Oh, no no no.

We haven't even STARTED talking about anchors, guns, politics, global warming, Fukushima radiation, vegan vs. carnivore recipes, or the disadvantages of single and multi-hull designs.

It's not really over until someone invokes Goodwin's Law.

(Apologies to the OP, and thanks for giving us a good puzzler, and for posting the answer!)

...or for pedantically pointing out
that it's "Godwin's Law."

Re: what is this? ( see photo )

At the risk of high jacking the thread pressure kerosene stoves work just fine for some folks. They take a bit of getting used to and most of the complaints listed here are through operator error.

We have them on both boats, they work as well or better than propane, fuel is safe and cheap and available, they are simple and can be almost infinitely repaired. And they can't blow up.

Some folks seem to be very sensitive to the aroma, but we are sufficiently steeped in it that we find it homey, and it does keep unwanted guest s out. If they are particularly hard to get rid of I just start the stove a little cold and the one foot yellow flame has 'em gone in no time.

That video brought back memories of an old kero powered paint stripper gun I used to use. Now THAT smelled bad.

Not that it's any of my business, but do you know who else called it "Goodwin"?

Also, if anyone has a stove with priming cups I have taken to using hand sanitizer gel for priming, the stuff works great! You can apply the amount accurately and it doesn't slosh or spill. Also easy to find.

It does leave a trace of white residue when it burns off but that wipes off with a damp paper towe
