If you google uses for WD40, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised, far too many to mention on here, but, from waterproofing materials & footwear to cleaning a toilet bowl, it's really amazing what you can do with it!

the gas chambers at Auschwitz (& other camps) were conceived after shooting prisoners were costing the German army too much-- IN BEER!!! the soldiers were all pissed as farts, mentally wrecked & strung out carrying out this duty, so the gas chambers (sometimes gas & others simply a diesel lorries exhaust pipe plumbed into the room!) were thought up!

80% of vanilla flavoured food (including the ice cream and essence) is made artificially, because natural Vanilla beans are very expensive.

Los Angeles (& some other states) have put millions of black plastic balls into their water reserve lakes to float & stop water evaporation, it`s reckoned they`ll save millions of gallons of lost water in this- their worst ever drought, & save a fortune as microbes will be greatly reduced (caused by sunlight on the water) ergo reducing treatment required to clean the water, astonishingly simple, but very effective idea!

the `60`s Monkey`s TV series was kinda funny until they started playing, then we all stopped laughing & our feet started tapping, the songs were quite simply brilliant, this is because the music was co-written by the living legend Neil Diamond!
