Wright Brothers’ Early Spacewalk Test (ca. 1915)

1915-spacewalktest

Using a pressurized helium-vapor suit, Orville and Wilbur Wright sought to solve future problems of space exploration, and their younger step brother “Nottle” volunteered to be the test pilot. Once afloat, the tethers snapped, and he sailed over the horizon. He landed in France and enlisted with the 43rd Balloon Company, serving as a practice target in WWI. Out of eleven volunteers, he was never shot down by the Boche once, and he survived the friendly fire, too.

Okay, maybe it wasn’t a spacewalk test, and maybe it had nothing at all to do with WWI, but maybe it did, depending on how you look at it.

Neon Sign Fails

Monday, 3 October 2016

oo-yea

If John Mellencamp had his way, all neon & fluorescent signs would look like that one. Here are some other examples of what happens when the gas leaks or the ballast craps out.

[Found in here, and there’s more. I was going to add some to their collection, but the site requires log-ins with passwords and stuff so I passed. Their loss.]

BTW, this is Mellencamp’s best song IMO, and the line is “That’s when a smoke was a smoke.” Not a spoke. Not a sport. Not a spote. Not a spork. A smoke.

According to her mother, her Great Grandfather had a very long tongue, too.

“In 2009, it was named the 24th-greatest hard rock song of all time by VH1. It is also often regarded as an influence on heavy metal music and being one of the firsts of the genre.”

Guess the song before you click here.
