Panini Bread vs. Occupy Wall Street
Wait a moment… A month or two ago, I complained about a Federal regulation that prohibits off-label uses of toilet-bowl cleaners. If the OWS protesters are dirtying toilets, any use of a toilet-bowl cleaner to repel them would count as an on-label use and would thus be legal. So the next time they invade, the owner might take some bleach and toilet-bowl cleaner and strike back with a gas attack:
She and her employees are terrified by the constant threats, which she said began after she demanded the protesters stop using her shop’s restroom as a place to bathe every day.
The final straw came about two weeks ago, when the demonstrators broke a bathroom sink, flooding the shop, and clogged the toilet -- setting her back $3,000 in damages.
NaOCl (bleach) + 2 HCl (toilet-bowl cleaner) → NaCl + H2O + Cl2 (chlorine gas)
