The Flying Pasta Monster

Welcome back to my blog about balloons, rocket ships, airplanes, space travel, Star Wars, sci-fi, and everything about flying!Today I will tell you about the mysterious and wonderful Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster! The Flying Spaghetti Monster has been around for hundreds of years, but it did not hit the mainstream till this letter was published in May 2005.
With millions, if not thousands, of devout worshipers, the Church of the FSM is widely considered a legitimate religion, even by its opponents – mostly fundamentalist Christians, who have accepted that our God has larger balls than theirs.

I do not know if I want to become a follower, but he is one cool flying god! Plus their followers are all pirates and Vikings!

How do Pastafarians, the name of followers of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, believe our world was created? They believe the Flying Spaghetti Monster created the world much as it exists today, but for reasons unknown made it appear that the universe is billions of years old (instead of thousands) and that life evolved into its current state (rather than created in its current form). Every time a researcher carries out an experiment that appears to confirm one of these “scientific theories” supporting an old earth and evolution they can be sure that the FSM is there, modifying the data with his Noodly Appendage. They don’t know why He does this but they believe He does, that is their Faith.

Their prophet is Bobby. His occupation when not engaged as prophet of FSM is that of a Hobo. Hobo is one who travels for work. A tramp is one who travels and never works. Also sometimes he is a nerd working on or around computers. Sometimes he can be found writing things for money. You can probably hire him to write something or do computer nerd work for you, probably cheap.

I live in Salem and for me it is easy to believe in tentacle like gods. You know the Flying Spaghetti Monster's cousin was born here, Cthulhu.

Johnny Sokko and His Flying Robot

Here is a cool show my father turned me onto, Johnny Sokko and His Flying Robot. I thought it was cool to have a remote control flying fish, but a remote control giant robot is way cooler!

Johnny and the other agents from Unicorn have to fight off Emperor Guillotine and the Gargoyle Gang. The Emperor sends out his hipster agents out from their underwater base in the Ocean to destroy the world. I always thought hipsters were from another planet. In each episode Johnny and his gang fight the agents as his Robot fight these menacing monsters. My father thinks it is a bit dated, but I love it. Check it out!

Flying Fish

Check out this new toy. I remember watching this show about the Amazon River. On the show I had seen fish fly through the trees. Well sort of...the river changed course and flooded a forest which allowed the fish to swim through the top branches. Still impressive. Now I can fly my own fish over the trees.

For only 40 bucks you can buy one of these flying fish and control them with this really cool remote control. They are 57" (with tail) x 36" (with fins) x 24".  You control the tail to steer them through the air. Now how cool is that!

Here is the link!

Father And Son Send A Spacecraft Into Space



Check this one out...

A father-son team, prompted by the boy’s persistent request to build a homemade spacecraft sent a small helium-filled balloon and tiny vehicle into space and captured it on video.

Luke Geissb├╝hler and his 8 year old son Max spent eight months designing and testing their tiny spacecraft.  They attached a HD video camera and an iPhone to it to track its GPS location when it come back down. Their little space ship had to survive 100 mph winds, temperatures of 60 degrees below zero, speeds of over 150 mph, and a possible splashdown in water.

A small weather balloon was used to lift the craft into space that was made out of a take out container. They covered it with spray-on insulation. Then they used chemical hand warmers to protect the camera and iPhone  from sub-zero temperatures inside the container.
.
Their spacecraft was launched in Newburgh, New York, in August 2010. During a 102-minute flight it managed to reach an altitude of 19 miles above the ground in the upper stratosphere (I ha to look up what this meant.) before the balloon burst and parachuted the craft back down to earth. The team tracked the module, which was caught in a tree 30 miles from the launch site, by using the GPS on the iPhone and spotted it's flashing LED light.

I am glad my balloons did not take me that high! I was dressed for summer and I don't think I would of survived the -60 degrees up there! Anyway I think Max and Luke are way cool.

Now here is the Video. Enjoy it!
