(Oil Eater) is the best stuff out there and is nontoxic and biodegradable. BUT only use it on a cool engine and never on glass. I pulled up 20+ year old oils from my folks driveway and even removed all grease and oil from some heavy equipment allowing it to be removed from a nuke waste site where contamination was around all the grease fittings and the NRC kept saying it was too hot to clear.

PS. You won't need a pressure washer either if you sprayit and keep it damp with more for about 15-20 minutes. It's that good!!

Spectacular advice I need to get rid of grease stains in the driveway. Also regarding the NRC and too hot: In a previous life I worked in the lighting field and I got access to tritium markers that you use as a keychain.

Well I set up on my best friends with one of these tritium makers and he went to work at A nuclear power plant as a contractor and he set off the alarm as he was trying to leave.

I thought it was hilarious.

Also I was correct.

They confiscated his keychain but he didnít take shit from anybody and he actually convince them to give it back to him when he was done working that week. From my understanding NRC doesnít allow them to be sold as Keychains in the US but we would import them from Europe. You can still find them on eBay they are not inexpensive.

One of the guys on my team had cut a piece of aluminum rod and used some dykem on part of it then buffed/scuffed it to look like a test source and used it to stir his and the inspectors coffee in a meeting with the lead NRC twatwaffle and he said that guy absolutely lost his shit....

Oh and about Oil Eater don't get it on any asphalt or you'll have really clean gravel not that I did that accidentally or anything...

That's an amazing practical joke.

When I was in nuclear power school we played an amazing prank on our instructor:

Dip both ends of a slightly used piece of chalk in superglue. It's invisible but makes it hard as porcelain. It looks like chalk but doesn't write at all.

The guy gets through half an invisible weird before he notices nothing coming out.

He stops and slowly goes to another section of the board an tried to draw a 1" mark (also invisible).

At this point the 4-5 of us in on the joke were giggling pretty good so he knew it was a prank. I can't remember if we fessed up or he figured it out he just broke it in half and got to work.
