Si, the name of the oil?

I, too, am lucky, have walked through it, slept in it, and made wreathes out of the vines (!!!). DH gets it if he looks at it.

I got it once a long time ago, not bad though. I've heard of people burning it to clear a field and they came down with it very bad without touching it.
People are *generally* the only ones susceptible to it. Dogs or other animals can get it, but it's rare. People can get it off thier pets fur.

What's the name of the oil? anyone?

A friend burned it, had it in his lungs, and weeping sores made his shirt sleeves stick to his arms on a flight.

Actually, humans are the only beings who get poison ivy. And yes, patting your dog, deer, or chicken can give it to you too!

Take it, Pac or BT!

OK, I'll throw one out there. And like the game says, you will either know this or you won't. I'm not even sure if it can be Googled.

Back in "the day", sometimes an 8-track tape... you know what that is, right... would get eaten by the player. If you were lucky enough to be able to get the 8-track and tape out of the player intact, How could you put the excess, loose tape back into the plastic housing?

I never had an 8-track so never took one apart. Now cassettes are a different story...

I'll tell you, you didn't have to take it apart.
Lots of folks thought the tape was shot if it came out of the casing, but it wasn't... if you knew how to fix it

on all cassettes, there's a small release tab that you press in which allows you to turn the spindle to wind the tape back in.
