    So how does one make trinotrotoluene if one cannot nitrate toluene?

    I did not say you could not "nitrate" toluene, I guess I misread
    Peter's original comment and did not take his "nitrate" as the verb it
    was.
    ....but for starters try blending toluene with sulfuric and nitric acid
    for the initial nitration to get the mononitrotoluene.

    True, but I did not say we were making "nitrate toluene." I said we were
    nitrating toluene, to make nitrotoluene. This was a class in organic
    chemistry, where we had about 14 hours of laf work per week.It was the
    equivalent of a college level course in chemistry.

    I got that after a second read.
    Yup! It would have to be organic chemistry, and certainly not at a high
    school level. Toluene is just another twist of that good old benzine
    ring.
    Physical & organic chemistry were part of my college days.

  5. So, never use wide angled, fisheye, or really short lenses when shooting
    onrushing trains. (Even with a slow rush, 27mph.)
