    Nah....Just drill some holes...sink some small nooclee-er devices underground along the state line (or handy fault line)

    Timed detonations, Kalifornians are used to earth tremors, won't suspect a thing, while the
    whole land mass, sets sail for China.....

    If Oregon and Washington goes too, well that's just "collateral Damage" and plus it
    makes sure "all the cancer was cut out".

    only problem with these suggestions, California is responsible for keeping the other 49 states afloat. That would be like changing the locks on the bread winner.

    So, The large container ports will just move inland a wee bit.....

    Now that Nevada will be "Oceanfront Property" it will now get nice even rain from the pacific, and replace the farming presently done in Kalifornia.

    Used properly ultrasonic cleaners work quite well. I use one for regular cleaning of the baked on carbon deposits on the gas piston of a semiauto shotgun. I use Simple Green, water, and a touch of isopropyl alcohol. Since the solution includes water anyway perhaps the cheapest crap Vodka could substitute. One secret of using an ultrasonic with solvents or other pricy stuff is to put the part in a beaker of solvent and place the beaker in plain water to transmit the vibrations.

    Steam also works well for many applications but I'm sure CA would want the runoff captured and processed.

    I don't recommend the smuggling route as that might slide for an individual but they would likely prosecute a business for that, ruining both the business and the proprietor's life. Larger shops in CA must have found workarounds for the lack of these substances so perhaps some of them can contribute ideas.

    I'm all for preventing pollution but IMO this kind of excess is what happens when nonproductive people attain too much power.

    What part of "with Kalifornia out of the way, it won't be a desert anymore" ?
    Don't you get ?

    Plus, timber....all that goes in the pacific, the trees will "float" and will be an
    easy harvest (no more enviro wackos to protest) to simply boat out there, drag them onshore,
    and cut off the stumps and tops, just like the ship breakers in Bangeldesh....

    But the bright side is that anyone that eats it will be getting a radiation tratment, so the chance of getting cancer should be less, right?

    Ya'll ass-you-me than all lettuce comes from Kalifornia ?

    No truck farms anywhere else ?

    You just do it cheaper with federal taxpayer funded irrigation, illegal labor, etc.

    The rest of the country can step up to the job nicely, thank you.

    As I explained, it's no problem. You go to anyone who supplies fuel for midgets of sprinters and buy it with no problems. One gallon, five gallons, fifty gallons.

    It does catch fire tho, so you want to be careful.

    Yuck. I'm not safety Nazi when it comes to solvents but I wouldn't wash my hands with methanol.
    I did for fifteen years, still have half my marbles

    I am a big fan of arm and hammer laundry powdered soap 10-12? once by volume to 1/2 a 5 gall pail of as hot as you can stand water and an assortment of brushes sometimes it is easiest to use solvent you put in your car that they sell all over but do be careful .

    Not to shatter yer illusions or anything, but, even if Cali was gone- Nevada is still 5000' in altitude for most of its area. Even Las Vegas is over 2000 feet up. That means you aint never gonna grow strawberries, or pretty much any of the foods that are grown in California. Assuming California dropped into the ocean, as the mystics and statistics say it will, that would only be the part of it west of the Sierras. The western half. And Nevada would still be arid high desert, too cold, too hot, and to dry to grow anything.

Now thanks to the ass holes coming over here with there communist gestapo tactics whining about not doing anything for the environment my vehicle registration has been trippled and I have to do emissions now. I live in a rural area and have never had to do emissions in my life. Thanks crapifornians and the like, stay the hell out of Arizona. If you want to keep on your destructive ways just stay where your at.

    For your cleaning problem you could try using freon, they'd get a kick out of that, ha.
    Californians have long been exiting to Oregon. This last year was pretty rough though. All the fuckers that got their insurance payouts from the wildfires said fuck it and moved up here to "wine country". My property value went from $300K to over $700K overnight, but that just means all my great neighbors are selling out and I get stuck up wine snobs for replacements.

    The Oregon coast range is 1500 to 4100' elevation and it is mostly a rainforest. Lots of agriculture here.

    If anyone is actually interested in some ultrasonic cleaner, I [think that I still] have a drum and half (?) of some soap that is made specifically for ultrasonics.
    Surplus from a factory closure.
    Let me know if you are interested.
    It's cheap.


    I found the thread:
    F/S Aqueous Washer Fluids and Rust Inhibitor Fluids (several)

    Most anything that I won't use myself is gone now, but I think that stuff is still there.

    not at 4100 feet there isnt- its in the Willamette Valley, which averages very close to Sea Level. Salem is at a whopping 154' .
    Geography trumps fantasy every time.
