    Other then being French, how is this more difficult than doing it
    without the He for lift?
  2. It's called muscles, an unused noun in america


  3. Somewhat related.

    I would like to do it in a rail gun. Hehehhe!

    Of course, it would have to be severely and safely pre-accelerated
    before the "rail" section gets fired, and the landing would have to be
    via chute or the like.

  4. The frequency of the participant's speech?

    Oh... I don't know...

    It appears to me that Obama's jaw muscles are pretty fucking well
    developed, even if the shit they spew represents the worst kind of

    Um, it takes more muscles without the He. Try using your brain. I
    know Europeons aren't much used to such exercises, but try.

  9. That's OK... Just start an argument... they'll surrender.

    Isn't "airship" generally used to refer to lighter-than-air craft, like
    blimps and dirigibles(zeppelins)?

    Yes. Your point is?

    The OP referred to an "airship", which according to the webpage, was a

    Ergo, flying a pedal-powered _airship_ wasn't what the GA guy did.

    Hope This Helps!

    That wasn't the point.
    No, but without the lift of the gas bag it's an even more difficult
    task. Strapping an airbag to the GA would have been trivial. ...or
    pump the wings full of He.

    The point being that this "record" for an airship is silly.

    Well, I knew even trying it was silly - when are the winds calm all

    I'm sure it happens occaisionally (winter tends to be relatively
    calm, and good for airshipping). The whole exercise amounts to
    picking the day.
