April 5, 2010: Rocket Man

Let's face it, model rockets vary in size, but they all look pretty much alike. Really, pointy on one end and kind of blunt on the other. Oh yeah, and fins, mostly on the blunt end. You'd have to be an aficionado to see much difference.

So if you're an avid rocketeer, going to a big meet, how do you stand out?



They were designed to blast off all at once, and climb to about 3,000 ft, unfortunatey 4 did and 4 didn't. But they will fly again... all of them.

Dear God Sheldon, you disappoint me. I saw your name as last poster and was expecting nothing less than cock rockets....

Well I WAS going to post a pic of Kevin Bacon's hard-on from one of his films (he has a few, btw) but I figured it might get someone in trouble at work. :-)

Now...if they can make the smoke the same color as the crayon-rocket...that would be something to see.
