After all the Harrier STOVL jet started life as a flying bedstead!

Remember what IBM said about Personal Computers…

Nah that looks like the same brand of gum used by BasAir to bind the wings to the fuselage of the BT-69. It’s just painted grey for effect. You can even see on the front where they stuck a few extra pieces for on-the-spot repairs.

Words ending in -tion
Concatenations abound
Brilliant fixation

Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead with the OE Blog Network!

I must mention that if it is one’s convention to have condescension to those who have little retention of the science inventions, abstention from condescension would ease much tension.

If you want to have a good transportation project, make something that flies or goes in the water.

In other words, that ATV you were making out of old take-out food containers and old car engines from the scrap lot is passe and won’t get you into college.
