Posted:Bender, DEAL! One appendix in exchange for One plane ticket to Thailand. We can perform impromptu surgery to remove the aforementioned appendix this wednesday.
- I'll expect the appendix in bound form, and at the end of the document.

(i've got way too much spare time..)

Posted:i never found any kero at gas stations in thailand unfortunately. it was actually a bit of a problem until i met some thai friends over there on some of the islands. you can find a hardware type of store in any city, you can tell pretty easy. ask them for nam ant gad. thai is tonal, so the nam is high, ant is low, gad is high. otherwise they wont know what you are asking for. also look for lamp oil. if you are going to be on an island, it will be easy to find. watch out for the red liquid in bottles, thats just gasoline; i almost made that mistake, then the lady pointed at a motorcycle...

Wow

Posted:Re PEGASOL - Please please please be careful telling people about Pegasol. The ONLY safe(ish) fuel called Pegasol is...

PEGASOL 440 SPECIAL

There are dozens of different types of fuel called pegasol or similar sounding names and a few people have been badly hurt using them for fire arts.

To follow through on Cazzar's coments, pegasol is very similar to Kerosene in the way it behaves, but has a lot less soot and a very light, hard-to-notice smell.

Please note, on the MSDS sheets, it is actually a tiny bit MORE toxic than kerosene when breathing in the vapors, but only by a few % so the actual difference is pretty negligible.

Anyway, kerosene can be purchased in NZ at supermarkets (cleaning section), hardware stores (cleaning section), Petrol stations (in the shop, in 1 litre bottles) but you can easily get 20L drums from most petrochemical suppliers at a much better rate.

Send me an email when you arrive if you want more help with fuels when you get to NZ.
