    kerosene is made out of coal, or it used to be.

    seen a History channel thing today about how it kerosene burned better in lanterns then whale fat, AND was better smelling.

    now i know how bad kerosene smells from burning it in my torpedo heater, i couldnt imagine how bad whale fat would smell then.

    Our economy needs that SOOO Bad! Unfortunately, it'll most likely stay underground for years tied up in lawsuits with the goddamn Green Nazis. :mad::mad:
