self sealing tubes

  1. wandering threw wal mort, i slid into the cambell hausfeld tire-air
    section and found!! a four in hand tube valve tool.
    EUREKA!EUREKA!EUREKA!EUREKA!
    using the little devil(a handsome tool), i pondered-does psitioning the
    rim nipple at 5pm, letting the fluid drain to tube bottom, then
    releasing air pressure by unscrewing the schrader valve NOT BY pressing
    the valve pin-
    does unscrewing the valve produce less slime leakage than the fluoid
    carried out by higher air velocity suck when pressing the schrader pin
    in? hey bernoulli!!
    also,(inwal) i found a can of prestone rubber dressing for the rim/pads
    and there's a can of rubber cement for pathces as wellas the patching.
    caveat. i have swimmiers ear and a small bottle of prescription
    anti-bio. label sez 1 ml contains ( 1 ml ) as much anti bio as the
    entire tube of garden variety neomycin.
    NAPA carries valve tools, rubber belt dressing and 8oz
    can of BalKamp 765-1198 Napa Universal Cement. Excellent for self
    sealing tubes!

    A word of surprise usually uttered when someone says or does something
    that was wildly stupid. An expression of recognition that one's own
    action(s) or statement(s) is considered totally wildy stupid, moronic,
    or buffoonish. Often times used upon the realization of making a
    mistake which can be considered wildy stupid, moronic, or buffoonish.

    bill, don't let it get you down or slimed, its probabbbly herditary.
    gotta pay attention and think, dude!

    :-D

    (Gene, WTH are you doing?!? Proper /prose/, man?!?)
     
  6. what am i not doing?

    the really cool thing about getting the valve out with the four in one-
    is the stuff that once blew out now rest silently clinging to the
    nipple's interior wall
    where it can be blown back into the tube where it expletive dletd
    belongs

    one does wish for longer tool handles but then the tool wouldn't spin
    around in the spoke space.
    with longer handles i could hold it between my fingers and jab the
    sharp end through the forehead of the *&&^$((99 creep stealing my
    valve caps
     
  7. when letting the air out with the four in one valve tool-keep the valve
    threaded a bit-squeezing the bead with a loose valve sends valve and
    slime into low earth orbit!
