Some fun on a Tuesday

Post by Yoda »

There is this guy on a local auction site, he has been trying to sell cerium oxide for weeks, 50 grams for around $5.

So, I was thinking of creating a funny situation..

I started an auction at $5 for a 1000 grams, was he pissed? Yes! Hehe!

I had a contact many years ago and she gave me 10 kilos of this, I will never be able to use that amount, so...LOL!

In fact, I will not use any of it as it is now, I have narrowed my act to a few things apart from a standard service.

It is, $10 for a kilo if you know someone working with it.

Let me know if you find a deal on tritium Lume :)

Oh, now I know. I remember buying this powder some years ago thinking that I could use it to polish the driver window of my car by hand ... I gave up after 15 minutes. It's a slow and painful process! (Maybe it works better using power tools)
