43 uses for WD-40

Unknown-1
What Is The Main Ingredient of WD-40? 
Before you read to the end, does anybody know what the main ingredient of WD-40? 
No Cheating….. 
WD-40 ~      Who knew! 
I had a neighbor who bought a new pickup. 
I got up very early one Sunday morning and saw that someone had spray painted red all around the sides of this beige truck (for some unknown reason). 
I went over, woke him up, and told him the bad news. 
He was very upset and was trying to figure out what to do   ….   probably nothing until Monday morning, since nothing was open. 
Another neighbor came out and told him to get his WD-40 and clean it off. 
It removed the unwanted paint beautifully and did not harm his paint job that was on the truck. I was impressed! 
WD-40 who knew? 
“Water Displacement #40”. 
The product began from a search for a rust preventative solvent and degreaser to protect missile parts. 
WD-40 was created in 1953, by three technicians at the San Diego Rocket Chemical Company. 
Its name comes from the project that was to find a ‘Water Displacement’ Compound. 
They were finally successful for a formulation, with their fortieth attempt, thus  WD-40.  The ‘Convair Company’ bought it in bulk to protect their atlas   missile parts. 
Ken East (one of the original founders) says there is nothing in WD-40 that would hurt you. 
When you read the ‘shower door’ part, try it.   It’s the first thing that has ever cleaned that spotty shower door.  If yours is plastic, it works just as well as on glass.  It’s a miracle! 
Then try it on your stove-top. 
It’s now  shinier than it’s ever been. 
You’ll be amazed.

About Dick and Danna

Resume for Dick Vernon, PHD (Possess Highschool Diploma) I am a dynamic figure, often seen scaling walls and crushing ice. I have been known to remodel train stations on my lunch breaks, making them more efficient in the area of heat retention. I translate ethnic slurs for Cuban refugees, I write award-winning operas, I manage time efficiently. I am a strong conservative politically. Occasionally, I tread water for three days in a row. I make women swoon with my sensuous steel guitar playing, I can pilot bicycles up severe inclines with unflagging speed, and I cook Thirty-Minute Brownies in twenty minutes. I am an expert in stucco, a veteran in love, and an outlaw in Peru. Using only a hoe and a large glass of water, I once single-handedly defended a small village in the Amazon Basin from a horde of ferocious army ants. I play bluegrass cello, I was scouted by the Mets, I am the subject of numerous documentaries. When I’m bored, I build large suspension bridges in my yard. I enjoy urban hang gliding. On Wednesdays, I repair computerized aircraft panels free of charge. I am an abstract artist, a concrete analyst, and a ruthless bookie. Critics worldwide swoon over my original line of corduroy evening wear. I don’t perspire. I am a private citizen, yet I receive fan mail. Ihave been caller number nine and have won the weekend passes. Last summer I toured New Jersey with a traveling centrifugal-force demonstration. I bat .400. My deft floral arrangements have earned me fame in international botany circles. Children trust me. I can hurl tennis rackets at small moving objects with deadly accuracy. I once read Paradise Lost, Moby Dick, and David Copperfield in one day and still had time to refurbish an entire dining room that evening. I know the exact location of every food item in the supermarket. I have performed several covert operations with the CIA. I sleep once a week; when I do sleep, I sleep in a chair. While on vacation in Canada, I successfully negotiated with a group of terrorists who had seized a small bakery. I balance, I weave, I dodge, I frolic, and my bills are all paid. On week- ends, to let off steam, I participate in full-contact origami. Years ago I discovered the meaning of life but forgot to write it down. I have made extraordinary four course meals using only a mouli and a toaster oven. I have given Rachel Ray and Emirile cooking lessons. I breed prize-winning clams. I have won bullfights in San Juan, cliff-diving competitions in Sri Lanka, and spelling bees at the Kremlin. I have played Hamlet, I have performe open-heart surgery, and I have spoken with Elvis many times when I taught him how to play guitar.. But I have not yet gone to college. ——————————————————- Resume for: Danna Vernon I put up with Dick Vernon. Doesn’t that say it all?
