I Believe I Can Fly

Thanks to The Rocketry Blog for giving me wings!

Rocketry Blog, Stubby the Tor.com rocket

Or, more accurately, giving me a 1/2 A-4T motor to launch me into the air. And check out all the others that made me who I am.

Not an easy adaption to flight. Stubby rockets tend to wobble.

I'd like to suggest another way to make Stubby fly. Build it with a carefully trimmed piece of narrow soda straw inside, or better yet a pair of little wire hooks.

Rig a line of kite string or fishing monofilament between Point A (high) and Point B (low) and make it taut. Then slide Stubby down it while humming Les Preludes.

I just noticed something that should be pretty embarrassing for everybody at TOR. Take a look at the last link that you gave us.

Now, do you find anything misspelled? I did, and I’m a horrible speller.

Hint: If you’re unable to tell your “your” from your “you’re” I’m going to come over there and take not just the pc away from you, but your job, too!

Necrosage: All the embarrassment is mine, I'm afraid. If it's misspelled, typo-ed, or grammatically challenged, it's likely to be my post -- not my colleagues.
