WD40 tricks

Stupid bike shop trick: When I worked as a mechanic in a bike (bicycle) shop we would blow up old inner tubes like balloons, spray them with a little WD40 and then toss them in a corner. After a few hours the tube would explode, hopefully causing everyone not in the know to spill their coffee. In our shop we were careful to keep WD40 away from tires and inner tubes. WD40 does negatively impact some rubbers and plastics, but not others. I try to keep it away from any rubber or plastic, just to be on the safe side.
