No, things usually disappear because of faeries, imps, gremlins...etc. around here. The different names are due to everyone I know calling them something different. Hence, the things I yell out about wanting back, always end up on my bed.

Some torpedoes used hydrogen peroxide as oxidizer or propellant, but this was dangerous and has been discontinued by most navies. Hydrogen peroxide leaks were blamed for the sinkings of HMS Sidon and the Russian submarine Kursk. It was discovered, for example, by the Japanese Navy in torpedo trials, that the concentration of H2O2 in right-angle bends in HTP pipework can often lead to explosions in submarines and torpedoes..

Ragnar - that scares me...on many levels. Um...EEK! You're talking about the stuff in first aide kits to pour over cuts, right? To prevent infection? They used it on TORPEDOES?! :confused1: :confused1: :confused1:

As for the purse thing...the phone pocket is usually opened/closed the most, and doesn't always latch, so since the silly earrings are these tiny little hoops, I didn't want them in a high-traffic pocket.


Sigh.

If it is allowed to oxidise, yes.

But then you need oxygen. If that gets REALLY cold, you can power a Saturn V rocket. Hel, what your breathing COULD get you to the moon. :-D

Besides, they used concentrated H2O2. The stuff you buy is less than 30%, it's more like 5 or 10%.

I think the stuff I have is like 4% actually.

But STILL, the concept is SCARY.

Thanks for the history/science lesson!

On a side note, think of how dangerous a 2-liter soda bottle can be. Shake it up enough and boom. That cap comes off at a pretty big clip.

Not just that, but leave coke on a painted surface overnight, and the paint will be gone in the morning

It can be used to clean the rust off of chrome (and pennies)

It can dissolve meat (Why it's often used in marinades - and gee what do you think it does to your intestines????)

Sorry CHL, Just an Urban Myth

Coke Lore, Acid
Coca-Cola does contain small amounts of citric acid and phosphoric acid; however, all the insinuations about the dangers these acids might pose to people who drink Coca-Cola ignore a simple concept familiar to any first-year chemistry student: concentration. Coca-Cola contains less citric acid than does orange juice, and the concentration of phosphoric acid in Coke is far too small (a mere 11 to 13 grams per gallon of syrup, or about 0.20 to 0.30 per cent of the total formula) to dissolve a steak, a tooth, or a nail overnight. (Much of the item will dissolve eventually, but after a day or two you'll still have most of the tooth, a whole nail, and one very soggy T-bone.)

Besides, the gastric acid in your stomach is much stronger than any of the acids in Coca-Cola, so the Coca-Cola is harmless.

The next time you're stopped by a highway patrolman, try asking him if he's ever scrubbed blood stains off a highway with Coca-Cola (or anything else). If you're lucky, by the time he stops laughing he'll have forgotten about the citation he was going to give you.

Ah but you've never used it to clean blood or dissolve meat or clean chrome, apparently ;)

Yes, a nail will be intact, but the penny will be clean, and the meat will be gone, not overnight, but in a few days it will fall to bits.

It cleans chrome better than chrome cleaner, and yes, gets blood out of concrete although I've not yet tried clothes.

I remember Mythbusters creaming that...they didn't get ANY good results using cola as a cleaner.

Can it really clean chrome? Or is it more the sugar adheres to dirt and the carbonation moves it?

I gargled with salt water, it was fine.

The snopes said that soda water is better than coke because it won't leave a sticky residue. It can clean things, that part is true, but the meat would break apart anyway from it's own decay just as well without the coke as without it. Any living tissue does. But the point it made was that your own stomach acids are many times more powerful than coke, so coke won't damage you internally.
