Old Tires Are Safer

I was reading about using old tires and they discussed chemical leaching. One thing they said was that the tires *were* old so that they had had lots of time under adverse condition to oxidize and vent harmful gases and chemicals. That is why new tires smell bad and old ones typically do not. I found this info and a lot more on tire houses at http://www.touchtheearthranch.com This was in the FAQ section. I'm quoting:
"The surface of used tires has been subjected to years of exposure to oxygen by high speed rotation in the atmosphere. This exposure causes a phenomenon called oxidation. Oxidation 'interlocks' the surface molecules with oxygen and 'out-gassing' (fly-away molecules of synthetic rubber) is considerably limited, if not stopped completely. It's the new tires that stink/outgas, they just need to "rust" for a while, before they are suitable for use as a building material."

One thing I've noticed is there are plenty of beliefs regarding the banking companies intentions if talking about foreclosed. One delusion in particular is the bank needs to have your house. The lender wants your cash, not your home. They want the money they lent you together with interest. Averting the bank will simply draw the foreclosed realization. Thanks for your posting.

Thanks for your publication on this weblog. From my very own
experience, there are occassions when softening upward
a photograph could possibly provide the professional photographer with a dose of an creative
flare. More often than not however, that soft cloud isn't what exactly you had under consideration and can usually spoil an otherwise good photo, especially if you consider enlarging the item.
