WD's an EXCELLENT chain lube! Low friction, and
it cuts the grime off with every app (high solvent).
Drawback is ... you gotta spray a new coat every few hours
of riding on a dry road. Don't want to use it at all
in wet conditions because water'll flush right out
of links in no time (low visc.). Try something
sticky like TriFlow. Sorry about your chain, but you've
got to love the smell of WD.

WD-40 is like Coke in many ways. They have a
secret formula that they sell to distributors around the
world. Almost every U.S. household has WD-40 tucked away
in their garage somewhere. By following Coke's
example, WD-40 also enjoys a superb return on equity of
40%. Management has been criticized for being a one

Lava Soap...an easy way for the grease-monkeys to get
clean after a hard day's work. The stock's symbol is

company, but it currently appears fully valued.

Does anybody know if it is publicly traded, if so what
its stock ticker is and details about management?
Seems like one of those moat-type companies (70% market

Any help is greatly appreciated in advance.
WEB has said in annual reports that he is not
interested in turnarounds, only in well managed, successful
companies with an ongoing stream of earnings. He also buys
companies whose managers he knows and trusts. Does Boeing
qualify on any of these criteria?
Of course if he
could get a good enough deal....
I doubt Boeing meets Buffett's criterion. Boeing
requires huge investments in plant and equipment. Somehow
I feel that Buffett considers that out of his
"circle of competence." Of course, Buffett have taken
some interest in high capital expenditure comapnes
(Champion, U.S. Air, etc.) but somehow Buffett does not that
well with those companies. Thus, BOEING AQUISITON BY
BUFFETT IS VERY UNLIKELY. Your comments please.
