Regarding the pickle question - I have noticed my asthma acts up in
presence of pickle, and have learned here on Ganoksin it’s not
healthy for my tools either, so I keep it just outside the studio,
on a multi-strip with a lamp - turn on rocker switch on outlet strip
as I enter studio, step outside the door for warm pickle, flip off
rocker switch as I leave for the night; breathe easy and enjoy less
rust on my tools.
(As an aside, I once worked in an auto dealership where a service
employee was seeking damages for the ingestion of cleaning fluid - he
lost, even though he suffered serious injury, because HE had placed
the fluid in an unmarked Styrofoam cup, forgot, and drank it, against
shop policy. Hearing him croak about his damages was a good lesson
about food/drink in the workplace - if you’re gonna do it, don’t be a
dumba**!) Also, I’ve found coffee and pickles together give me
heartburn - others?
