== == A great question. The mycellium of common mushrooms are bioluminescent and glow in the dark. These have been used for centuries. Settlers in the US used to pack them into glass jars and read books by the light. They called it foxfire. Although most people don't want to go Into the Woods at night, there are wonderful things to discover when you turn off the flashlight!

What are some old paints that are no longer around?

Radium paint is no longer around. It was used to make glow-in-the-dark watch dials, and it was radioactive. They still make glow-in-the-dark watch dials, but the paint on them contains phosphorescent compounds that store energy from light and gradually release it. Lead-based paint is also largely nonexistent today.

Tree Stump Removal Services?

Anyone who has a nasty tree stump sitting in the yard from an old tree that has died or was struck down by lightening, wants to have that stump removed. Tree stump removal can be done in different ways. There are products on the market that can be used on the stump to make the stump porous by dissolving it. This isn't too difficult. Holes need to be drilled all around the top and sides and the product is poured into each hole. The stump can then be burned in four to six weeks or it can be let to decompose naturally. Another way to remove the stump is to hire a professional to do the job.

Would salt and water kill a tree stump?

No it would not, your best bet would be to have a stump removal specialist come and do it for you. If you know about fungi then use oyster mushrooms to decompose the stump, this way is slow and takes about a year but you get fresh oyster mushrooms to eat every rain. You can burn the stump depending on where you live and how old the stump is. If its fresh it will not burn good, but if its old it'll burn up nicely and *presto* no more stump. I use the mushroom method on stumps around my place and it works great, its taken about a year and the stump is wood chips now, I have probably ate around 3 pounds of oysters :)
