Lycra? Oh, I *love* chemistry! Per Wikipedia: Spandex or elastane is a synthetic fiber known for its exceptional elasticity. It is strong, but less durable than its major non-synthetic competitor, natural latex. It is a polyurethane-polyurea copolymer that was invented in 1959 by chemists C. L. Sand...

Re: 500 Watt Gas Generator, $305 - 21 LBS, Unlimited Range??

Try this experiment?
After you have bought that generator, fill its tank, "fire it up", and stick your nose up its exhaust pipe?

And please let us know here how your experiment goes? (Length of time before you passed out, etc...)

Cheers
