CAP1N FROM REDDIT ASKS:
"I bought a Banker lamp from a thrift shop and the brass has rust on it. What would be the best way to remove rust from the brass?"
Huh. Okay. Well, I definitely want to help you with this, but I can't see the rust. How am I supposed to fix it if I can't see the rust? The formation of the rust is incredibly important towards figuring out what my advice is for you. Turn the lamp on! You need to turn the lamp on!
I'm putting my all into this and trying to help you, but how am I supposed to do that if you won't cooperate with me? Why am I even doing this?
Forget it. If you're going to waste my time, I'm just going to have to punish you for being a bad member of the online community. I really don't like doing this, but you made me. I searched through your history and found this GIF that you posted.
Oh, look! How adorable! A girl hugging an owl! I think I'll ruin it forever!
