take the title of this thread for instance. I'm sure a couple of mentors are rushing to see what I'm complaining about this time, but alas that's not what this is about. I was walking through a thrift store yesterday and I found a "Zero Blaster." For those of you who don't know what that is, its a gun that shoots smoke rings. It was only 99 cents so I bought it. I got home and jumped online to see what I needed to do to get it working. It turns out that it needs to be filled with their special smoke producing formula, which I didn't have. It also needed six AA batteries which I didn't have. I could order the formula online, but it would take days to get here and who can wait that long? I did some research and found out that the smoke formula is made of purified water, propylene glycol and glycerin. I know what that stuff is, I can make it myself. I went to the drug store and started looking for glycerin and propylene glycol. I couldn't find it, but I did find a product who's ingredients were: purified water, propylene glycol and glycerin. So I grabbed a bottle of it and a package of batteries and went to the counter to pay. You should have seen the look the cashier gave me as she bagged my 12 pack of batteries and my tube of Astroglide personal lubricant. I didn't even attempt an explanation. I just paid and fled.
