KNO3 Dementia Scale
The scale goes from 1 to 10. Read on.
After a few notable postings on the different pyrotechnics
lists in the last few days, I've decided to introduce everyone to my KNO3
Dementia Scale. It is a scale of the degree of dementia caused by over exposure
Over exposure to KNO3 can usually be diagnosed in a person who shows three or more of the following symptoms:
1. Passive aggressive behavior
5. Opinionated responses to any subject
6. Secretive behavior
10. Disbelief of well accepted truths
11. Poor hearing
12. Compulsive behavior
13. Incapability of counting from 1 to 12
14. Urge to fly to Thailand
I have documented all postings on my favorite pyro site and have rated all members on the scale which goes from 1 (completely normal) to 10 (think Tasmanian Devil with a lit 10" bottom shot). For your own private evaluation, please send me $10 and an SAE.
To become adept at using the scale itself and to evaluate your close friends, list the last 10 postings you have seen and rate the poster from 1 to 10 using the number of items displayed by the above list... Add up the total scores. The number you get should be approximately 85 for most pyros.
