It's a Marine Corps thing. Or used to be before the invention of the stress card

Jarheads wipe with stress cards?  No wonder they're such bad... asses!  ;)

I couldn't say what they do nowadays.

What do they do when their Humvee gets a flat in a combat zone?

They go with a combat jack.  ::)

I recently built a can heater to regulate the temperature in my fermentation chamber on cold days. The can heater uses a 60 Watt incandescent light bulb as a heat source.

As of Jan 1 60 Watt bulbs can no longer be manufactured in or imported into the USA.

Any suggestions for alternatives? Many of the new efficient bulbs produce far less waste heat.

The 60 Watt bulbs will probably be around for a while.

Maybe I can replace with a heat lamp?

Just wondering what people think.

Chocolate enrobing machines blew air across a light bulb to warm the chocolate but now they use an open coil heater.
