It will also, if my prior experience with spay foam is any indication, glue your blocks together such that you will NOT get them apart easily. Please read the specs and tell us w...

Why do they drop a ball???

....popcorn..... would translate (in numbers ) to 767 2676. I put my area code in (281) plus 767-2676 and in the Houston, TX area, and I got a local Air Conditioning service.

I'll bet that before area codes (Sheesh, you are old!) 767-2676 was reserved for TIME on the old switchboard.

Electric Beaver (airplane, that is)

One of the articles mentions a 100-mile range on this first electric beaver. However, a 600-mile range is expected on another electric plane. See the additional article below. https://fortune.com/2019/12/10/electric-powered-commercial-airplane-makes-history/ Batteries are clearly the limiting factor...
