    Spent some more time researching this...from what I can tell, presuming that the tank is at room temperature, when you empty some propane from the tank, as much propane as possible will turn to the gaseous form that it has at the ambient temperature...and the pressure of the vaporized propane actually keeps the rest of the liquid propane compressed, and thus, liquid.

    I'm not sure what would happen if, say, the ambient temperature were the precise temperature where propane liquefies/gassifies...and you then emptied some of the tank...or maybe just below that temp, or just above...

    Propane boils at, -43.6°F or -42°C

    If you emptied out a propane bottle at or below that temperature you would have a pool of liquid propane. It'll stay that way because its vapor pressure is less than atmospheric pressure.

    Okay, then what happens inside the tank? does the propane remain liquid and the rest of the volume of the tank is vacuum? or will there be something opposite to the compression effect?

    I can't find a quick simple answer to this and I'm high: could Magneto (from the comic books) incinerate people if his power were real? What I'm really asking is if high current could be generated through a human body with a moving magnetic field. Assume the power and speed of the field are limitless. And the human isn't wearing anything conductive.

    Has anyone ever used a wallet with the protective skin? The ones that are supposed to protect against crooks trying to scan or clone your credit cards. I was wondering do those protective wallets interfere with key cards? I keep my keycard for work in my wallet and the badge scans are about waist high so I don't even have to take my wallet out of my pocket to scan in. Before I get a new wallet, I wanted to know if anyone has experience or knows do the protective skins also stop scanners from reading keycards?

    The answer to that question is most likely yes, as those protective casings protect against the reading of a card's magnetic strip or whatever shape the magnetically sensitive component is in a card of any description.

    If apple has been slowing down phones intentionally, what's to say Video game producers haven't been doing the same sort of thing with their video games, forcing people to spend more money on better graphics cards/computers?

    I got scared while first time I filled the tax form. It looked so complicated to me. I am not still used to it. Now I always fill my 1099 and other forms by my accounting software. At least no hassle and pain now.
