More than likely, they WW2-era gas masks won't be effective. If a gas mask came into contact with any type of chemical substance, the gas mask will no longer protect the wearer. Other environmental factors like moisture and heat can also affect the effectiveness of the gas mask. Also, many gas masks used in WW2 were manufactured with blue asbestos inside them, which makes them less than safe to begin with. Taking all that into consideration, I'd recommend buying a new one,

I got infringement of 1550 dollars for not cutting a grass where is allways a gravel and dunped concret on my land by whittelsea councile


I would go around with a line trimmer, if you buy a line trimmer get a gas 2 stroke one, Stihl prefer or Echo and use it. or spray chemicals, this could make animals sick, and has a long lasting effect of killing most everything. Ortho ground clear, don't get it on you. wear a mask. only spray one time and wait 2 weeks, maybe 3, then go back and hit the spots still green, don't clean anything up let it lie and run into the ground it will last a long time... wash yourself well and consider wearing gloves, always wear a mask no matter what the bottle says...! cheers

What was a gas mask?


The gas mask is a mask used to protect the user from inhaling airborne pollutants and toxic gasses. The mask forms a sealed cover over the nose and mouth, but may also cover the eyes and other vulnerable soft tissues of the face. Some gas masks are also respirators, though the word gas mask is often used to refer to military equipment (e.g. field protective mask). The user of the gas mask is not protected from gas that the skin can absorb. Most gas mask filters will last around 24 hours in a nuclear biological chemical (NBC) situation.
Airborne toxic materials may be gaseous (for example sulfur mustard and chlorine gas used in World War I) or particulates (such as many biological agents developed for weapons such as bacteria, viruses, and toxins). Many gas masks include protection from both types. Gas masks are used in construction to protect against welding fumes, in deconstruction to protect against asbestos or other hazardous particles, and in the chemical industry when handling hazardous materials, as in making repairs to leaking equipment or cleaning up after spills; workers have usually issued gas masks as a precaution against leaks.
During demonstrations and protests where tear gas or CS-gas is employed by riot police, gas masks are commonly used by police and demonstrators alike. Aside from serving their functional purposes, gas masks are also used as emblems in industrial music, with the most notable example, the subgenre of drum and bass called Neurofunk. These emblems are used by graffiti taggers because the mask protects them from the paint canister's toxic fumes, and by urban explorers venturing into environments where hazardous materials, such as asbestos, may be present.

How can I avoid buying an obsolete gas mask that won't work in case of emergency?


I found this site - The National Terror Alert Response Center - it looks like it's run by Homeland Security. They have an article about obsolete gas mask models you should avoid that you can find here: http://www.nationalterroralert.com/gasmasks/
They also have lots of preparedness guides that you can access on the site.

Idles rough until you give it gas then clears up


Vacuum Leaks

Old O2 Sensors

Dirty MAF Sensor

Old Spark Plugs

If you give it gas, you increase vacuum, so a leak has less effect
on fuel trim than at idle

If it is fuel trim as in slow O2 sensors alone ,again it is masked
for awhile with extra fuel taking away the added air from a vacuum leak

Sony Trinitron picture turning green hues


Nowadays CRT's do not have good quality shadow masks anymore. After heating up a little they can give a so called "blooming" effect giving a blue an yellow leaf effect large over the screen. Reason nonparallelity in deformation of the shadow mask.

Transition effects without scripting


since you did not tell me what software you have, I suggested you to try SWISHMAX2.
To create transition you just put the object and choose the effect.
You can try the trial version in swishzone.com
In the forum Swish communities you can have more effects for free. Also tutorials are available.
If you dont know how to start it, just let me know.
