Ahhh! Woooh! What's happening? Who am I? Why am I here? What's my purpose in life? What do I mean by who am I? Okay okay, calm down calm down get a grip now. Ooh, this is an interesting sensation. What is it? Its a sort of tingling in my... well I suppose I better start finding names for things. Lets call it a... tail! Yeah! Tail! And hey, what's this roaring sound, whooshing past what I'm suddenly gonna call my head? Wind! Is that a good name? It'll do. Yeah, this is really exciting. I'm dizzy with anticipation! Or is it the wind? There's an awful lot of that now isn't it? And what's this thing coming toward me very fast? So big and flat and round, it needs a big wide sounding name like 'Ow', 'Ownge', 'Round', 'Ground'! That's it! Ground! Ha! I wonder if it'll be friends with me? Hello, Ground!

I don't know if this is what you meant....but if so, we called it crop dusting.

In junior high school, we had an open campus when it came to lunch. Just about everybody went on a sprint as soon as the bell rang to get to whatever lunch spot they wanted. Many of them went just across the street to the convenience store called Quick Sac. This was in early 80's, so prime time for arcade video games. The games in this store were lined up in a peninsula of sorts; only one way in and out. We would walk into the area and let the gas fly and watch with big smiles as everyone suffered from the stench, but wouldn't leave the game they paid for. Good times.

I was fishing an alpine hike-in fishing lake near Chetwynd a few years ago when a plane kept buzzing the lake. It didn't have floats, but figured maybe he wanted to do an emergency landing on the lake, so we moved to the shoreline. The plane came back overhead and dropped a load of rainbow trout into the lake. That was so cool to see.

"They are so small and they don't have a lot of mass to them, so their acceleration rate is pretty low," Gepfert said.

I suppose pilots don't really need to understand the theory behind how this stuff works...

Trout seem a bit streamlined, for some reason.

Is that anything like a Chicago sunroof?

Fun fact:  They did a bunch of this in the 50's in remote alpine lakes. By doing so they pretty much wiped out all the local variations of trout that had evolved in these remote lakes over the centuries.

If they over accelerate before they hit the water; then I would say their tails.

Certainly more exciting than releasing Blue Jays via nuclear submarine.

My dad used to tell us that skipping the fish along the top of the water rather than just dropping them over the side of the boat was mean, and the fish could feel it.He probably have one or two things to say about dropping them from a plane.

Their tailfin, if they don't stick the landing.

I've often had to stop myself from overthinking what life in the Larsen household must have really been like. I don't want to lose any of the magic.

Yes, sometimes I think the mysteries of air will never be unraveled.
