Helicopters beat the air into submission and are way cool to fly. However, Leonardo Da Vinci’s helicopter has a major shortcoming in its safety. Why are there no classic fly-in helicopter shows?
“Aside from painting the Mona Lisa, Leonardo Da Vinci sketched out what he called the Aerial Screw. This Aerial Screw was a man-powered helicopter that required four men to spin cranks fast enough to generate enough lift to get off the ground. After the Aerial Screw sketch it took another 420+ years to actually make a working helicopter.” – Dr. Knowitall
Are you on Helicopter Mode vs. Airplane Mode?
Forget airplane mode, be on helicopter mode. Some airplanes can turn on a dime, but all helicopters can stop, hover, and pick up that dime. Check out the T-Shirt or Coffee mug.

Hard to believe but they published some of the comics I drew during my 20 year military career! These humorous musings may make you laugh or offend others, but are the result of awesome mentors, great buddies and a deep appreciation for sarcastic humor. They officially released it on Veterans Day in either paperback or eBook for Kindle or iBooks. Here is a link to get a copy if interested.
