Speaking of airplanes and escape systems: Polish Air Force just approved and is installing ejection seats for their... helicopters. Also solar powered flashlights became a standard part of pilots survival gear <img src="images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />.

well, perhaps you can't walk with inflated condoms, perhaps you can. In anycase there are those who are solving the problem of expedient walking on water. Looks like styrofoam, venetian blinds and duct-tape are the required equippment.

Did you hear about the horrific air disaster in Poland? A Cessna went down in a cemetary. So far they've recovered 487 bodies. <img src="images/graemlins/shocked.gif" alt="" />

As part of the testing for my business, I've smashed, thrown, and torn apart numerous types of compasses and none were filled with water. There may be some out there, but the ones I've destroyed have an oily liquid that smells a lot like kerosene in them.

I wouldn't recommend drinking the stuff, but you may be able to tear enough of them apart (5,000 or so), in order to refuel your vehicle. You never know... you might run out of fuel near a compass factory!

Can't remember what show it was on t.v., but there actually is a helicopter with ejection seats. Explosives blow the rotors first and then the seats eject.
Discovery channel or something.
