from welding, but blue from welders I find to be equally plausible, if welders are humans. (Although some welders, I swear, are a little bit more than human.)

An interesting side trip that I never would have experienced if I had been less ambiguous and said "magic smoke" instead. With computers, for example, when you let the magic smoke out, it is a Bad Thing, a usually the item is toast. When welders let all that magic smoke out of metal (or plywood), it is a Good Thing that makes the welded thing work. Astonishing!, I tells ya.

Got to watch some rather good welders this summer past. Right outside my door. Popcorn and polarized sunglasses.
