The concentrations in the smoke are probably pretty low but it is very nasty.

It is used to etch glass. You store it in wax coated bottles. Nasty. Not good to inhale.

Like the man said thought, low concentrations.

Disregard some of the signs. Electric is tolerated. Quite popular on the weekends. I fly AM Wednesdays. Afternoons when we don't have weather like today. If you can be available for career day we can always use someone.

Thanks for the answers guys. That "green" side of me kicks in once in a while.

Re HF: Season 1 of Breaking Bad. It eats calcium, enamel, rock (in higher concentrations of course).. Not the best for you and much better outside than inside the house.

So i take care not to ever leave a battery charging if I'm not in the room...

Tonight i just got a Leary feeling about my battery's just sitting...
I store them in a plastic toolbox so i rubber banded all the battery wires to each battery tonight thinking oh man what if two battery's touched opposite wires i could have a bomb in my house Oh and yep in that toolbox is about 15 3s 2200mah battery's so it now sits outside till i can find some big metal box to keep them in....
