Black Friday plans: hike with the family. And not to a store.

Wanna join in?

In response to Carlos's post about the asymmetric Rutan Boomerang, I give you the Blohm & Voss BV 141.  Another unusual, asymmetric design.  Only a handful built and none survive today.  Shame - it would fascinating to see one of these flying around.

From Wikipedia (where I borrowed the photo, as well): 

"Three prototypes and an evaluation batch of five BV 141As were produced, backed personally by Ernst Udet, but the RLM decided on 4 April 1940 that they were underpowered, although it was also noted they otherwise exceeded the requirements."

My wife just saw an article about football deaths among high school students, so I Googled "how many students die each year from football-related injuries?" I got article after article discussing how over a hundred students die EVERY YEAR. I assume there is an even greater number of incidents that don't end in death, but just permanent injury.

I then Googled "how many students die each year from band-related injuries?" I got a Wikipedia article on hazing.

Telling.
