My uncle had - well, he still has health problems from agent orange.
I think he has huge sores on his legs he's been dealing with ever since he came back from Vietnam.

Its sad. Wifes ex had just got the VA to admit that his agent orange claim was legit and had drawn a check for 6 months and the cancer took him fast. He wasn't that old. Mid 50's or thereabouts.

In regards to Jason's tale...
I quit school on my 16th birthday since I hated wasting my time learning that Washington or someone sailed the ocean blue. The following school year I retook my junior year at vocational school by choice. I studied horticulture (yes, it's true, you can lead a whore to culture but you can't make her think :whistle: ). I did good really good learning about greenhouse, golf course, and orchard management. I learned how to operate machinery, mix chemicals, and use rooting compounds. I learned plant biology, chemistry, and landscape design. What I didn't learn is how to respect chemicals. They tried, I didn't listen. I would mix malathion, seven, 2,4,D, fertilizers, you name it, with my bare arm too. Got my arse chewed on a regular basis for that.

We had three sets of connected greenhouses each 200' long separated into six wings. We were required to light nicotine bombs in the greenhouses to combat pest's that are common to greenhouses such as aphids, white fly, red mites, and scale. They where done like fireworks, a big foot tall cone about 6" diameter at the bottom filled with nicotine powder that a large diameter sparkler was inserted into and then lit. 12 of them filled the greenhouses with a ton of smoke made of nearly pure nicotine. Of course we where told to hold our breath... :yes2:

I suppose since it was not a daily thing we all likely survived the stupidity unscathed. :dunno: So far I've been very healthy (health wise) but I've abused my skeletal self to the point of being broken as many here can empathize with it seems.

No moral. ;)
