    They just got better at making ice milk and now it is called low-fat ice-cream.

    The food grade stuff, yes. The stuff you get in the garden center - NO!

    Yep, there really is a difference.



    But I could have lived without knowing what they did to my ice milk. Some of us couldn't have ice cream growing up (serious milk fat allergy).

    They're going to be busy sprinkling that stuff for a while. Takes time to get all those critters.

    A 1994 change in United States Food and Drug Administration rules allowed ice milk to be labeled as low-fat ice cream in the United States

    It's also why it's good to have electronic ignition on our stoves and heaters instead of pilot lights.

    Maybe his bottle said inflammable and he figurated that meant not flammable.

    Along with a couple sprayings from this

    Wasn't there an account some years ago of somebody who set off several foggers in the house and went away for a few hours? The house blew up.

    Then there was a story a month or two ago where a man went to a gasoline station to fill his tank. There was a spider crawling around the gas cap. So he got out his lighter to kill the spider. He wound up setting the car on fire. See pictures at https://thedaleygator.wordpress.com/...el-door-video/
