He still breathes (but only just barely...)

Hey, gang!

I know there hasn't been a lot of activity on the Centaur front lately, and I apologize. I've been working on a few other projects that needed my full attention, but now that's out of the way, I'll be back to drawing, probably by this weekend.

The reason for the "probably" is I'm recovering from something incredibly stupid I did on Wednesday, the 21st of March. I was cleaning the bathroom attached to my bedroom when I mopped over a section of floor that I had put some mildew remover on. If I had bothered to read the label of the mildew remover first, I would have seen that it contained sodium hypochloride as the active ingredient and I wouldn't have mopped over it with a dilute solution containing ammonia.

I'll give you a second to google what that chemical reaction produces. (SPOILER: hydrochloric acid and phosgene gas. Like from the trenches of World War I...) That's right, I inadvertently made chemical weapons in my bathroom while trying to clean it out. At least I didn't use the full ammonia cleaner.

Moral of this story, kids? READ THE LABELS ON YOUR CLEANING PRODUCTS. This isn't rocket science. It's chemistry... which is, I suppose, part of rocket science, isn't it?
