The Dead Sea is 1,300 feet below sea level and has approximately 4 times the dissolved salt content of sea water. It is said that you can float on your back and read the newspaper. It seems that with the decreased drag on the pontoons due to substantially increased buoyancy and with the increased power output of the engine, a little super cub on floats or better yet, a Maul should leap into the air .

I own a Beech Baron that I absolutely love. As a commercial multi-engine instrument pilot, are there any type of operations that can be flown in the airplane to help cover some of its costs besides renting it out or giving multi-engine flight instruction in it (both of which tear up the airplane)? I want to fly the plane under part 91 and therefore do not want to use it for anything which might fall into part 135 operations and get me into trouble. Any ideas? Serious suggestions only please.6 AnswersAircraft1 decade ago

Politics aside, who was our most eloquent President in modern times, both as an orator and in casual speech?
I would cast my vote for Clinton. They didn't call him Slick Willy for nothing! He could precisely express just about anything and could form a real connection with his audiences.14 AnswersOther - Politics & Government1 decade ago

How did Japanese and Chinese newspapers create the thousands of ideograms before the days of word processors?
For the Japanese, it's easy to create "Kanji" ideograms nowadays in printed form. You simply enter the word phoenetically with the "hirigana" alphabet and the word processor automatically converts the input into the appropriate Kanji. How was printed material created before the computer age? A typewriter with 5,000 buttons perhaps?!? These are the silly things I think about!3 AnswersLanguages1 decade ago
