Good one!

But, wait. If you're posting on the forum then you're either sitting in front of your computer or texting while riding!

Ah you young guys don't remember the smell of castor oil coming from the exhaust of a quarter mile midget on an oval track in the middle of summer. Ah the good old days

Except for here. It's snowing!! Yikes! And just when it looked like it was all going away. Sigh. On the positive side, this is just for one day and then the sun comes back out. That's springtime in Alaska. (But it's not 44 below like that old song says. LOL)

After a quarter mile that poor midget must be exhausted. Those little legs can only move so fast. LOL

I still use castor oil as a lubricant for my 2-stroke glow engines in my R/C planes! LOVE that smell It works great too, it doesn't burn up much it just spews out the exhaust (makes a mess), but at 20,000 rpm's lubrication is essential

Lots of uses for baby oil. Worked in Saudi and the beaches have a lot of tar balls just under the sand. Central California the same. Was using gasoline or other solvents to get the soles of my feet clean until someone put me onto baby oil. The tar wipes right off.

Vaseline works good as a lube. Put it on the bedroom doorknob to keep the kids out.
