Ha! ^^^

I once dropped a whole bottle of fish sauce in my driveway… I thought that was bad. Lulz

Is the driveway made of concrete, blacktop, or wood?

Better on the driveway than in your kitchen.

In our old house, my wife was painting our kitchen & knocked the quart of light blue paint off the ladder onto dark hardwood floors.

Surprisingly, 99.9% of it came out, just a bit left a tiny bit in some of the grain of the wood.

Why would you want to work twice as hard? It doesn’t drip. It doesn’t make a mess. Wring it out. You wash it in the washing machine. Made in
Germany—you know the Germans always make good stuff.

When my oldest son was very young… like 11-12, he was the arbiter of Sham-wow Vince on Wikipedia.

Taught me to trust nothing there. Wink

My grandfather liked to tell this story:

My GF was 16 years older than his youngest brother, Danny. Danny, when he was a young kid, maybe seven or eight, had a whole bag of fireworks and was going out to have fun. He walked through the kitchen with the firecrackers and a lit punk in his mouth. He dropped the punk into the bag in the kitchen. After all the fireworks were done, Danny was standing there, sooty and shell shocked. My grandfather got the job of cleaning the whole mess up.

So, maybe the stain isn't so bad?




The fish is mute, expressionless. The fish doesn't think because the fish knows everything.

Concrete. I cleaned it up as best I can. I’m not a stickler on things so I’ll get over it. No worse than a few fading oil stains from my old Nova.

Paint the stain red, then paint a yellow "chalk" body outline around the worst of it.

Refuse to answer any questions about it from neighbors.

I would like to apologize to anyone I have *not* offended. Please be patient. I will get to you shortly.

You must have a paved driveway. If it were on mine I'd just kick some gravel over the spot.


No car is as much fun to drive, as any motorcycle is to ride.

Couple years back I dropped a jar of cobalt blue oil based stain on my concrete garage floor. Fortunately it was close to the door. I talked the wife into come out and slowly pour paint thinner over it while I scrubbed with a stiff broom. I pushed it out the door every so often and we started over. It took a gallon of thinner but you really can't even see it now.

You might be able to at least lighten the stain with non clumping kitty litter. It'll also work on your oil stains.

Great excuse to buy an old panhead now. You have the perfect place to park it.
