    !! Jon, how much you order from Amazon you need a bubble-wrap shredder?
    What portion of Amazon's stock price depends on Jon??

    Firecrackers don't register my giddy impulses. I hear crackers or balloons in sustained popping; I'm taken back to Orange County International Raceway, 1968 on, nitro-methane and AA/FA's. Including Willy Borsch and The Winged Express, The Beebe's, Mondello...web contains infinite text and video. Rabbit Hole!
    1st time at a professional meet, an evening never to be forgotten. Rode along with cousin, but I had the missing back seat [floor]. Owner stripped non essentials for the afternoons early rounds of street cars. Once there, all 3 wrenched and got Safety Inspection. 390, 4bbl, 4 speed, mounted slicks, inflated narrow front tires 45psi, opened air cleaner, uncorked the headers and get in lanes for staging!

    Save your bubble wrap for the winter time then place on your windows to add insulation to them. I've used it for years In our RV
    Never try to tell me it can't be done
    When I have to paint I use KBS products

    Great insulation. Wrap small bubble sheets around a hose bib, protects it against freezing. Our attic has silvered bubble wrap under the rafters, very effective. They are pierced to breathe though, otherwise condensation allows mold to form.
