Come to South Africa, we don't solder here, we just pull some gum from a tree and smack the batteries together. After that we go outside and chase a few lions and drink some fountain of youth juice.

We don't wash our hands either, don't have fresh water. After a day at the races (chasing lions an'all) we chill and larf at who lost the most legiments.

Hope it helps, but anywayz, wash your hands, solder in a well ventilated area, wash your hands again. The races here tend to use a small dust mask.
