While waiting at the Airport yesterday for a friend flying up from Sydney, I amused myself by imagining a tilt rotor (with me at the controls, of course!) landing vertically on the runway and taxiing up to the gates.

OT- As a matter of fact, it IS rocket science.

NASA and Stanford University have developed and tested a new parrafin-based rocket fuel. The by-broducts of combustion are water and CO2.

Off on a Tangent

Tangent's Rant reminded me of Petey's in Under The Lemon Tree/Schlock Mercenary episode http://utlt.keenspace.com/d/20021118.html

Hmm... I can't see if Scott added any new stations to Mr Beck's map of the Underground. :)
