I could ask does anyone know of the Obama administrations use of Babyblood ,to condition Pelosi's skin?However,without basis,it's just goofy.

View PostYep, sperm whale oil continues to perform well at extremely low temps. They still use it for satellites. I think even the Hubble telescope uses it.

 

That's pretty damned cool! Where can we buy some for personal use?

All kidding aside i think William Nye co. was the last co. to make whale oil about 1978 or so. I think William Nye co. New Bed ford, Massachusetts has switched to synthetic lubrication oils for the space industry.

My last bottle of Nye oil that i was saving for a grandfather clock got tossed by someone cleaning.
