Mass Mosquito Launch Record?

Post by Dan Winin » Fri, 27 Jun 2003 08:28:35



I got a call from a guy from the Discovery channel who is doing a
story on LDRS. He had a question I could not answer. He wanted to know
is there was a record for the most Mosquito launched at the same time.
Does anybody know the answer to this?

While it didn't set a record, John Coker's swarm was pretty cool.

Maybe that's what the ATF is using to justify their claims that rockets could
be used to deliver bioweapons: "That's right Senator, these rocket nuts are
launching Mosquitoes and we all know how many deadly diseases those can carry!"

Heck, there are rumors that they are going to start launching Porta-Potty's.
Just imagine an innocent persons surprised face when they enter a Porta-Potty at
a concert or job site and suddenly they get launched.  And the diseases they
must carry (the Porta-Potty's).  We gotta stop these heartless terrorists.

I once launched a Nike-Zeus, is it a crime to launch a deity?

You're not launching a porta-potty, you're delivering it to a needed
location by parachute. Just like the marines do with the cargo drops.

   The burning question everyone is itching to ask:  if you spray "Off!" on
your Mosquito, will it misfire?  Or will it launch and never light again?
