I was surprised at how much my hands sweat in those rubber gloves in the summer though. That's the trade off.
I pick up the thicker black gloves at the local swap meet for about 8 bucks a box. They work great when i remember to wear them.

Ummm, wait a minute, that's the Jungle book, no I was raised just outside of St. Louis, But...in the deepest jungles of a middle class neighborhood .

You can buy various thickness rubber mechanics gloves on Amazon for cheap.

These 6 mil are what I bought last and they seem to work much better than the thinner 3 mil blue ones I previously bought. The 3 mil ones rip too easy.

You can even get 12 mil but I think they are more for extra protection against germs.

Well; now I know why it's so expensive to change head gaskets on a V8 or V6 and rebuild the heads.

It's a heck of a lot of work. My hat is off to those who do this kind of work all day everyday for a living. Even more respect for places that machine and set the valves on/in the heads in house.

Another one for the "You can't make this stuff up" file.

Man denied passport because of 'vulgar' last name: 'They're restricting my freedom'

A former soldier from the U.K. who changed his surname to "Fu-Kennard" for a laugh says the joke has backfired — he was denied a passport.

Kenny Fu-Kennard, 33, whose surname used to be Kennard, changed his name in 2016 and even got a driving license under his new moniker.

From the weird and obscure file.



Kenya's Homa Bay: Fart pushes Speaker to suspend debate

A heated debate about market stalls was disrupted by a foul smell and furious finger-pointing at a Kenyan regional assembly on Wednesday, local reports say.

"Honourable Speaker, one of us has polluted the air and I know who it is," Julius Gaya reportedly told Homa Bay county assembly.

But the member he accused of farting is said to have replied:

"I am not the one. I cannot do such a thing in front of my colleagues."
