Life at TJ's

   22 April 2004, early afternoon

Kevin, the Assistant manager at TJ’s, tells all in a very interesting online journal.

This is the most fascinating thing I’ve learned this week: natural gas has no smell. When you “smell” a gas leak, you are not smelling the gas, which has no smell, you are smelling an additive they insert into the gas to give it a smell, so you can detect it and get a safe distance from your home before it blows up and kills your neighbors.

This guy is brilliant.

  2. I had no idea. I just like the, “so you can detect it and get a safe distance from your home before it blows up and kills your neighbors.”

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

 
Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
