Well, PAPR's* aren't all that bad... if you don't mind things over… - Melodramatic, corsetted mistress of the obscure

Well, PAPR's* aren't all that bad... if you don't mind things over your face and don't have to move around too much. If one is just sitting and weighing things out, it's not so bad. Unless you are a doofus and try to rub your nose... then you get oil on the face plate RIGHT where you are trying to look out.

From now on, my nose can just bloody well go on itching if I can't manage to rub it with some OTHER part of the shroud.

It's an interesting project, too. Good thing the client seems unnaturally patient. 10,000 capsules, lovingly HAND FILLED with powder (there's a trick to this... and it's a messy, messy trick). Two people can fill about 50 an hour. Two sets of two people will double that, but three people don't go much faster than two. Today, we have three people. :p But we should have four tomorrow. I think the pairs should race each other.

*think of the haz-mat suits. Total body coverage and filtered air blown in to the head-shroud.

Take a sharpie and draw a smiley face on the faceplate. I dare you.

Or a dry erase marker if you want to reuse it.

The Powers That Be would have a COW. Mostly, because I would be trying to bring in a substance that doesn't have an ID and been tested to death. Well, and I would be trying to SEE around the damn stuff.

After which, I would have to kill you. Just on principle. And I do NOT want to be Prez of KCCG. So, you have to live.

I both am not allowed to say and haven't got a clue. It's pure API (Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient), it's a fine, caking powder and it's yellow. That's about all I know. :p
