I’m going to my Rotary Club, dear….
Quick quiz: The guy in this picture is making…
a) a helicopter-shaped ice sculpture
b) a helicopter-shaped lamp for his living room
c) a helicopter-shaped playhouse for his children
d) a homemade helicopter
As bizarre as it may sound, d) is the answer.
I blame myself. I’ve spent so much time in this blog warning about homemade submarines that I haven’t actually mentioned, if you’re going to go straight up in the sky in a vehicle, it should not be put together from crap in your back yard.
Kids, this especially goes for you….

The graphic designer and helicopter enthusiast, with help from his friends, has spent more than a month building the helicopter.
