[21:02] <jcoxon> hey all
[21:03] <phatmonkey> hey
[21:04] <phatmonkey> i have a nice idea for a balloon, would be interested to see if you had any input
[21:04] <jcoxon> go for it
[21:05] <Ed_Moore> hi
[21:05] <Ed_Moore> sorry
[21:05] <Ed_Moore> carry on :)
[21:05] <jcoxon> hey Ed_Moore
[21:05] <phatmonkey> basically ask people to build a paper aeroplane, send them up in a big net, release high up and the paper aeroplane that goes the furthest wins!
[21:05] <phatmonkey> for charity I suppose
[21:05] <phatmonkey> like those balloon releases
[21:05] <Ed_Moore> that's pretty cool
[21:05] <jcoxon> hehe
[21:05] <Ed_Moore> unless someone gets a paper dart in the eye :)
[21:05] <jcoxon> fun idea
[21:06] <jcoxon> would be interesting to see how the fall
[21:06] <jcoxon> and how far
[21:06] <jcoxon> at that height they could go along way!
[21:06] <phatmonkey> yeah
[21:06] <phatmonkey> definately!
[21:07] <phatmonkey> efficient ones could probably get over to france
[21:07] <jcoxon> yeah
[21:07] <jcoxon> perhaps
[21:07] <Ed_Moore> especially if the catch the jet stream on the way down
[21:07] <jcoxon> exactly
[21:07] <phatmonkey> would be a really nice charity event
[21:07] <phatmonkey> would attract a lot of interest
[21:08] <Ed_Moore> might be good to try and get launches in the local paper
[21:08] <jcoxon> best to get a reliable launch vehicle :-D
[21:08] <jcoxon> not yet
[21:08] <phatmonkey> as soon as I get a working glider, i will investigate it further
[21:08] <jcoxon> don't want people to get disappointed
[21:08] <jcoxon> nor make a fuss about the dangers etc
[21:08] <Ed_Moore> no i mean a report
[21:08] <Ed_Moore> 'local guys launch weather balloon' and have a nice high altitude piccy
[21:08] <phatmonkey> the local paper had a large article on the sponsered dog with my slug, I can't wait what to think they'll think of something that goes to space :D
[21:09] <phatmonkey> ... almost
[21:09] <jcoxon> its just people these days like to make a fuss out of nothing
[21:09] <phatmonkey> almost filled half a page
[21:09] <phatmonkey> yeah
[21:09] <jcoxon> you'll spend years persuading them its no risk to planes
[21:09] <jcoxon> or that its not going to kill someone when it lands
[21:09] <Ed_Moore> ok. will leave that one :)
[21:09] <phatmonkey> would be nice to get interest in these paper planes though
[21:09] <jcoxon> in time yes
[21:09] <jcoxon> yeah
[21:10] <jcoxon> perhaps near the end of the summer we can look into it
[21:10] <phatmonkey> ... and nobody could complain it's a risk to the environment if we limit to a single piece of A4!
[21:10] <jcoxon> hehe
[21:10] <phatmonkey> my school has all sorts of charity events
[21:11] <phatmonkey> then there's the church ones too, and all sorts of village fairs
[21:11] <jcoxon> yeah
[21:11] <phatmonkey> it would be nice at that sort of thing
[21:11] <jcoxon> of course
[21:11] <Ed_Moore> where are you based phatmonkey?
[21:11] <phatmonkey> could launch in the middle of it
[21:11] <phatmonkey> hertfordshire, uk
[21:12] <Ed_Moore> oh really- where abouts in hert?
[21:12] <phatmonkey> tring
[21:12] <phatmonkey> right next to aylesbury
[21:12] <Ed_Moore> i know tring
[21:13] <phatmonkey> bit of a dull pretty town
[21:13] <Ed_Moore> and bizarrely have a memory that it was always a contestant school on cbbc's '50/50' from tring
[21:13] <jcoxon> now thats an odd memory
[21:14] <Ed_Moore> i like to think so :)
[21:14] <phatmonkey> that is quite an odd memory!
[21:16] <jcoxon> exam go okay phatmonkey?
[21:19] <phatmonkey> well, terribly hard
[21:19] <jcoxon> oh
[21:19] <phatmonkey> but everyone else found it hard too, so that's ok
[21:19] <jcoxon> :-)
[21:19] <Ed_Moore> what exam did you take?
[21:19] <jcoxon> i start tomorrow
[21:19] <phatmonkey> german reading
[21:19] <phatmonkey> end of german for the rest of my life, yyyuuuss
