OK, time's up. Is this unnamed substance:
1. That nasty smelling shit they use to soak up puke in schools and amusement parks.
2. Clumping cat litter.
3. Something you throw on icy sidewalks to provide traction.
4. Diazinon Grub Killer.
6. Some sort of really expensive, stone-ground, 7-grain hot cereal that my wife mail-orders from some place in East Bumfuck, Central USA.
Yeah, you guessed it. It smells like a pot of boiling popsicle sticks when it's cooking.
