In France, for instance, you get a Propane/Butane mixture which varies from summer to winter.  There's a lot more energy in Butane but it doesn't vaporise at low temperatures, so they put the Propane in for pressure.  In the UK the measly buggers give you 100% Propane all year round.

Interesting times we live in. :popcorn:

Isn't that a Chinese curse?

I honestly have no idea what you're talking about.  :query:

"May you live in interesting times" is rumored to be an ancient Chinese curse

Meanwhile back at the ranch.................. There is a nut group in Texas called Texas Nationalist Movement. They claim to be the largest group in the state or maybe the nation. They are inspired by the result of Brexit and they are endorsing the idea of Texit. That is to say that they want to secede to become a sovereign nation.  Apparently they are dead serious about this.

This has been going on for awhile.  Won't happen.  Although our economy is as big as Brazil's and we have more guns than the rest of the world combined, it seems. We could probably survive.  About half the USA would be happy to see us go.  But it ain't gonna happen.  If Texas tried to secede, President Obama would order the two divisions at Fort Hood to occupy the capitol in Austin and that would be the end of it.

This made me laugh! We spend a couple of centuries acting in a way that makes Mormons and JWs look shy and retiring and then this!

Also, you can complain about immigrants after having colonised half the world.
