    It has been proven that ONLY those who breathe can get cancer. That MUST be the cause!!!!

    CALOSHA also discovered that saliva causes death... but only if swallowed in small quantities over a long period of time...

    Not a teeny bit. Just try shopping a solid object without a Proposition 65 Warning. Even stainless steel. https://www.google.com/search?client...d&q=CA+Prop+65 .They all cook in clay pots?
    Nearly as persuasive as the more genuine water shortage; but find a brown golf course, even in the desert....not yet!
    No matter how irritating liberals and woke-ees are, they provide endless entertainment for sensible folks.

    What a terrific technical description. As clear you worked that yesterday!

    That "barring over" required of very accurate rotating assemblies carried on elsewhere too......Though ball bearings had been around some time, they were barely able to sustain speeds and loads of early jet turbine engines. They were kept turning slowly to avoid flat spots on bearing assemblies. The airflow requirements of intake/ exhaust made remaining space limited; way different then found in something like a motor case, real end bearings and maintaining thrust clearances.

    Many Proposition 65 warning signs required in various establishments are printed on heavy plastic.

    I wish I had the money to fund a chemistry lab to prove that the signs, when heated by the sun, give off gases that "are known to the state of California to cause cancer".

    Then I could take the state to court and make them put Prop 65 warnings on the Prop 65 signs.

    Proof is near already made; off-gassing is going on all the time. One example is film that collects inside auto windshields; vaporized petroleum products. Can't recall one plastic not petro based. Proof is near already made; off-gassing is going on all the time. One example is film that collects inside auto windshields; vaporized petroleum products.

    That film by the way is difficult to remove; glass cleaner is not efficient or effective. Pro's use 70%+ clinical alcohol and micro-fiber towels, not paper or cotton.
