off topic, sure, but... muons don't have an odor that humans can detect

cats can smell 'em. My cat (schroedinger) chases muons all the time.

...this one time, she got trapped in a box with some muons, and there were no doors, no windows, and everything was sealed up....

Did someone let that cat out of the box again? Dang determinists...they think everything is knowable...

My buddy Heisenberg told me over coffee though that they're wrong.

Perhaps -- but I'm not sure of his position on things. I can't tell his position when I see where he's going; but then again, I can't quite see where he's going when I know his position. He's a hard man to pin down.

You realize, Brian, that probably 90% of the folks here don't get the physics jokes, lol...I'm enjoying it though.

And no, I'm not a physicist by any stretch -- just an engineer who reads too much.

We had one of our fleet trucks (yes we still a use Gen II Ranger) fill with smoke last year and it turned out that a bunch of leaves and pine shats got in the cowl vent area and caught on fire. The cab still smells like a forest fire.

Yes, you're probably right about that. So, you're inclined towards plane humour then, eh? We should probably stop this, though, before we create too much friction.

Oh, yes, I'm an old "Flatlander" from way back -- I was born in southern New Jersey (no hills, lol).

My heat was on low so i started back home ( i was 1/4 mile from home) when it started again. It smells like a barn fire smoke and so do i now. I shut it off again to check and again nothing. I turned the heat off and hauled a$$ down my road and got home. Dont do it when the vents are off. Im thinking heater core but ive never seen one smoke that much. What do yall think?
the same thing happend to me with my bronco 2. i was drinkin on a gravel road with some friends and smoke came out of the vents. at first i thought it was on fire too. smelt like burnt leaves
