Egothorn?!? Ouch, I’m hurt, I’ve been wounded by a seven year old, what’s next, you gonna make fun of my haircut?
I see from your reply that you are having some trouble with the English language and some big words, I’ll go slower and use smaller words, try to
break it down to a level that everyone can understand. Going forward I’ll keep you in mind, but try to keep up, and if it is still over your head,
no worries, just let me know and I’ll get my niece to explain it to you, as she might be closer to your age than I.
Some pesticides, for example, and some herbicides, for example were once delivered into a farm or onto crops through a device we call a chemical
fogger. A chemical fogger is just a simple little engine that burns gasoline but doesn’t really do anything else, it is an engine just like in a
lawn mower but it doesn’t cut the grass, it is an engine just like in a car, but people do not ride in it, it is an engine just like in an air
plane, but it does not fly. But the engine does run and when it runs, it burns gasoline. The thing that makes the fogger so special is that we mix
herbicides and pesticides, lets call them “chemicals”, in with the gasoline, so when the little engine is running, smoke comes out of it. Lots
and lots of smoke and in that smoke are the chemicals we want to put on our crops to keep away insects and weed.
Why do we want to use smoke, you ask? We use smoke because smoke gets into places that water cannot reach, and smoke doesn’t cause mildew or other
molds. The really funny thing about the smoke from the fogger is that we make it smoke so much on purpose, Yes, that’s right, we make it smoke so
much so we can see where all the smoke goes and we can avoid breathing the smoke because we all know that smoke is bad for our lungs, right? But if we
wanted to, we could make the fogger work just as well, with just a tiny little bit of smoke, so little you couldn’t even see it unless it is a
really cold day. And on those really, really cold days, those days when you can see your breath for a moment or two, any amount of smoke lingers for
a long time.
Most aircraft engines are designed for a relatively low octane requirement, something akin to kerosene, which is the most commonly used base for
aviation fuel. A low octane rating, among other things means a higher flash point. A flash point is the exact temperature in which something can
ignite. However, for some engines, alcohol is added to the kerosene for a different fuel mix, and gives the fuel a lower flash point. Here’s the
tricky part so pay extra special attention to this information kids. Kerosene and alcohol are both fuels but they are also very strong solvents and
almost all drugs can be dissolved in either kerosene or alcohol, so when the fuel is a mixture of the two, virtually any drug can be dissolved in the
mixture. Now remember that information kids, cause there’s going to be a test later on.
A low octane requirement allows for greater amounts of additional particles within the fuel with the only real concern being binders or chemicals that
could become sticky before, during or after ignition. Those are simply not added to the mix as they generally only added in manufacturing a pill or
an elixir and certainly not recommended for a fuel additive. Most drugs are in the form of a salt for human consumption but this is also easily
manipulated in manufacturing.
Now, you mentioned that the use of chemical trails or aircraft exhaust as being an ineffective means to disperse chemicals and that it would be much
easier and effective to spread poison out of the back of a boat while trolling up and down the coastline. Let’s think about that, someone would see
you, the action would be traceable, the concentration of poison would be very high and exposing not only the intended target(s) but the driver of the
boat, the tourist and swimmers in the water, the marine mammals and so on. My God, man, are you insane? To jeopardize the health and well being of
every known creature in the kill zone, you’re not very good at this, you fail, miserably. The goal was to kill off the fish, only the fish, in the
zone. My method achieved the goal and gave a three month window of time for marine mammals to swim off to safety, unharmed. Bystanders only
experienced a mild cough, I guess efficiency and effectiveness are examples of perspective. As far as the math goes, I understand math was hard for
some people, its ok, I understand, really, its ok.
I would suggest you read up a little more about the potential use of aircraft exhaust as a chemical delivery system, you either don’t get it, or
don’t want it. In either case your opinion is irrelevant as aircraft exhaust is in fact, a very effective means of dispersal if the dynamics are
understood and used accordingly. It is wide open and available to anyone smart enough. Of course I couldn’t expect everyone to understand that, some
people just don’t have the mental capacity. Just as we shouldn’t expect that everyone in the Air Force is a pilot, someone has to stay on the
ground and pump the gas, and I am sure that those guys do it because they wanted to and not because they lack the required pilot skills. Reality can
be harsh, yeah, I know. Here’s a hint for you, I respect those who show respect.
