` While washing dishes in my ghetto lab shower yesterday, I noticed that most of the dark brown spots hanging from the Ceiling Paint Nodes on our bathroom ceiling are either gone or brown no more! These spots are actually the yellow nicotine deposits from a previous tenant, who, like my own PsychoDad, spent vast amounts of time smoking in the bathroom.
` (Come to think of it, PsychoDad would have you believe that nicotine stains are due to burnt toast....)
` Apparently, the utter lack of a resident smoker combined with copious quantities of shower condensation have resulted in most of the nicotine dripping off various Ceiling Paint Nodes to reveal a ceiling that is actually *gasp* white!
` Unfortunately, as nicotine is a potent poison to any living creature (merely the amount found in a nicotine patch would kill anyone who ate it), the rather ugly substance was having a profound effect on the local mildew population. Now that this poison is retreating, the mildew has come back to claim the surface it is most properly entitled to....
` I took this picture for sentimental purposes - it's time I used The Bleach Gun. Yes, mildew! Snicker now, at your degrading environmental toxins! It will be your last! Mua ha ha haa!
