It's A Sad Day

John S. Barry, Main Force Behind WD-40, Dies at 84

John S. Barry, an executive who masterminded the spread of WD-40, the petroleum-based lubricant and protectant created for the space program, into millions of American households, died on July 3 in the La Jolla neighborhood of San Diego. He was 84.
There isn't a real man alive today who hasn't used this shit at one time or another. I use it on a regular basis.

Besides the normal uses of freeing rusted parts and lubricating various parts, is spray it on steel tools in lieu of 'Pledge' to keep the rust off.
It also works fairly good as an ant barrier or even as a flame-thrower for cicadas and cockroaches.
Some people even soak artificial fishing lures in it as an attractant.

There is just no end to the list of uses for this priceless liquid.
