And the guy wasn't wearing any eye protection? EEk!
Thanks, Rich

Your Feynman quote got me interested so I checked out Feynman. What an intersting guy, there is some great stuff on youtube with/about him. Thanks!

Check out the Feynman biography "Genius" by James Gleick. That was a good read.

Incredible engines.. and the "operator" gooses the throttle control like it's a cheap cordless drill.
Here's another demonstration.. hey, where'd the crowd go?

--Awesome! I'm thinking he might want to put some better brakes on that trailer; even with that small prop I'll bet it's got a pile of pull when you throttle up... :-)

Feynman's memoirs ("Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman" and "What Do You Care What Other People Think?") are great reading.

I gotta hook the speakers up to the new computer.
There is a gent I see at Names each year making progress on single row bristol. I'm looking forwards to hearing it run one of these years.

That Bristol Mercury project is some very nice metal art. Great surface finish on each part, meticulous workmanship.
I expect that hearing it run will be a thrill.. and the next time, etc.

It makes me nervous to see that crowd standing at the edge of a large spinning propeller. Maybe they=92ve never heard of centripetal force or metal fatigue. I suppose that disintegrating props don=92t make the front page. Brrr=85.

Proly the only Nobelier with a Brooklyn accent. :) Coney Island, iirc.
Also, the Feynman Lectures he did from Berkeley are proly regarded as one of the best expositions on undergrad physics. Still available.
