I love solvents (Day 71)

This really powerful feeling hits me about once a year or so: I *really* love solvents.

Water is obviously awesome, and does almost everything. But stuff like windex, alcohols, MEK, WD-40, soaps and emulisifiers, a variety of acids…its just crazy what they can do.

Not even talking about the crazy movie stuff of dissolving a body in a bathtub, or eating through 15 floors of spaceship. Just things like removing stains, cleaning countertops, dissolving solidified food residue, removing paint or corrosion.

They’re awesome, but that I viscerally appreciate them with a frequency I don’t randomly appreciate other, roughly equally awesome things doesn’t really make sense to me. Perhaps its just how they touch my life, or the combination of senses they touch.
