Salt

Well,it’s not good for old cars when they put it on the road.
But salted nuts just don’t taste right since the nanny state started cutting the salt down. Thank goodness that we can still add it. Salt and shake nuts, perfect with a nice cold beer. :D

Salt is bad for the cars and too much salt is bad for you also.

i nearly always eat peanuts whilst consuming ale. last night were cashews, my favourite.

these days ive started buying unsalted nuts due to too much salt being not good for you. what it does is make you drink more as your throat dries. this will be why they used to put salty products on the bar counters years ago on a sunday lunchtime.

also I stopped driving my classics years ago in the colder months as mentioned, salt v metal isn't good and there's only one winner there. until march/april, its maintenance on the classics for me. I much prefer the heated leather seats and climate control of my modern VW these days at my age!

Nothing wrong with salt, too much water (substitute any other food item) can kill you. :roll:

Yes, as a student in the early ‘70’s I worked summer holidays in an iron foundry. A really hot place. We had big jars of salt tablets and a cold water drinking fountain. It was good money, but I don’t think anyone would put up with it these days. One of my jobs was carrying baskets full of limestone up metal steps to tip into the cupola...we carried them on our heads.
When they tapped the cupola it got really hot,lots of molten iron,that would sometimes behave unpredictably. Once saw a chap get a bootfull of it. He wasn’t wearing the recommended gaiters so didn’t get any compensation for losing his foot.
