Ugh.. I'm about to pass out..

I just finished cleaning my weekend roadie and my commuter for 3 solid hours this afternoon in my room with the door closed, AC on, DVD on tv. I wiped down the whole thing, cleaned every nook and cranny, cleaned every link on the chain with degreaser, water, and lots of alcohol. Unfortunately, I neglected to properly vent the room...

Might have been interesting to see what would happen when lighting a match, gas stove, etc.
