Today I learned......

Post by Mancman » Tue Jun 03, 2014 10:44 pm

Today a friend told me to type 'do a barrel roll' into Google. I asked him if he thought I were stupid and I wasn't going to fall for it. He persisted so I did and lo and behold the screen does a barrel roll! This amused me no end and I was laughing about it long afterwards.

It's the little things in life......

Have you learned anything today that's either clever, stupid, puzzling or amazing? If so write below!!!!

The man who helped create (improve) the Merlin engine used in Spitfires and designed the VTOL engine was born in my home town. :shock:

It's incorrect anyway; spinning 360 degrees without changing heigh is an aileron roll
