Okay, so I didn’t go quite as far as this blog entry’s title suggests, but I did put in a fair amount of effort for Biodiesel Day, although the results weren’t what I expected.
Oh wait, no, they were exactly what I expected.
It turns out that an Argos Value battery operated nasal trimmer won’t work if you soak it with vegetable oil, not even if you vigorously rub the grease into every nook and cranny of its inner workings using a toothbrush. And you know what else? It wouldn’t even work when I put the batteries back in!
Thanks a lot, Rudolph Diesel, I now have to go to work in the morning with spider legs protruding from my nostrils and hands smelling like a deep fat fryer.
