Zeppelin-Enthusiast Site

J�rg Lohmann�s Zeppelin-Enthusiast�s Site You can't say I don't have varied interests. I understand that the new Zeppelin Co. has delivered a passenger carrying tourist Zepplin to a Japanese company. Another interesting Zep. factoid is the possible cause of the Hindinberg "Oh, the Humanity" (hear also the WKRP Thanksgiving Turkey Drop audio) disaster. A NASA hydrogen scientist investigated the crash as an outside hobby interest. He learned that the dope holding the skin to the frame was the same stuff as is used in today's solid rocket fuel. Not a good choice!

You might want to look at this site.The Skeptics Society and Skeptic Magazine

El Guapo Speaks!

"Sio credesse che mia risposta fosse
A persona che mai tornasse al mondo,
Questa fiamma staria senza piu scosse.
Ma perciocche giammai di questo fondo
Non torno vivo alcun, s'i'odo il vero,
Senza tema d'infamia ti rispondo"
