    I hope they were treated. That could be fun. Arsenic makes for good times.

  6. They used arsenic in the citrus industry for years. It makes the fruit sweeter. I probably have it all over my property :eyebrow: My 50 year old orange trees produce some very sweet oranges though............so I guess it's worth it :D

    In all the times that I've gotten a mouthful of pressure treated sawdust, I've never once thought "Mmmm, almonds!" ....maybe I'm using the wrong brand!?:eyebrow:

    They no longer use arsenic in treated wood. These days it's mostly copper oxide and didecyldimethylammonium chloride. Tastes like pennies now ;)

    Actually, I've been around sawdust all my life, so I've tried both flavors. I don't really like either. If you want something that really tastes good, cut into a forty year old telephone pole.;)
  10. With the new found popularity of ricin, good old arsenic will probably go by the wayside :D I wonder if ricin would make my oranges taste better?? :confused: Or keep wood from rotting?? :eyebrow:

    I prefer red oak and balsa. Better for my fingernails.
