Out of the Blue

Hatchee matchee! And it's March! As John Belushi once pointed out, March sometimes comes in like a lion and goes out like another lion (one has a mane and one doesn't have a mane), but here's hoping the whole lion/lamb transition is in order (though I'll willingly accept a lamb/lamb scenario). A little poking around reveals that there's more than just the coming spring to celebrate here, as March is National Women's History Month, National Youth Art Month, National Nutrition Month, National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, National Craft Month, and heavens to Jimmy Carter, it's also National Peanut Month.

23. End of the World Mar 2, 2004, 02:03 unaloony
 
The first time I learned of the Pentagon report, back around January 27, 2004, it was an out of the day in Blues News. It was a link to a February 9, 2004 issue of Fortune Magazine that was yet to be printed. Just wanted to say, that was good reporting.
BTW, the earliest published instructions for match rockets I can think of is the 1967 edition of The Great International Paper Airplane Book by Jerry Mander, George Dipple and Howard Gossage, Simon and Schuster, 630 5th Ave, New York SBN 671-21129-3, copyright Shade Tree Corporation, A Fireside Book

I suggest you first wrap the match with a piece of tinfoil and then slide a pin (small paper clip about the biggest) up to the head. The tinfoil retains a tighter exhaust tube. I suspect they didn't want to list that on their web page because they were afraid would jam pins up matchsticks and into their fingers.

It makes a big difference if you launch with the exhaust tube on the upwards or downwards side of the flat paper matchstick. Be Careful!
