which is technically different than defending it.It's a small but meaningful
If I had unlimited resources... money and time... ( and that counts
maintainance time and money also ) I'd be as period as it is possible today.
Except for the additional hidden modern comforts like coolers and soda.

- I am sorry, but I have to disagree with you . Ammonia is VERY toxic but your nose will detect it at even lower levels. It can permanently damage your lungs. IMessage 31 of 31 , Oct 28, 2006View SourceI am sorry, but I have to disagree with you . Ammonia is VERY toxic but
your nose will detect it at even lower levels. It can permanently damage
your lungs. I have worked with it professionally at chemical (fertilizer)
plants and also vividly remember when the ammonia truck fell off the upper
level of the I-610/US59/US75 in west Houston.. and the evacuation of the
area (I lived nearby). All vegetation in the immediate area (including
trees) died... as did some people. It is readily dissolvable in water and
does degrade fairly quickly... so no long term hazard.
I do not discourage it's use... but take appropriate precautions.
