Description: Airship USS Los Angeles (ZR-3) in a near-vertical position, after her tail rose out-of-control while she was moored at the high mast at Naval Air Station Lakehurst, New Jersey.

At 13:29 a sudden cold weather front hit Los Angeles; the resulting increase in the buoyancy of the airship, warmed by sunlight, pushed it upward. The tail freely went up while the nose remained tied to the tower. The captain requested permission to disengage from the tower, but the ground crew “saw no need for it”. Winds threw the tail further upward; The ship captain sent the men into the tail, but Los Angeles kept rising until reaching a nearly vertical (88 degrees) nose-down position. The airship slowly rotated back; the captain called his men back and released aft balance, saving Los Angeles from a tail-first impact. Los Angeles survived the accident and served until 1932, performing 331 flights without major accidents or fatalities.

    This one is scary:

    This one is winning right now. (Here’s the autotranscript: “Hi Shannon. I’m going to sing you happy birthday in a style of my phone now, but visiting June. He’s doing a little more. Good afternoon, but did at to yeah, please. And And you know on it’s David, Yeah, Jim pie.”)

    This is a guy singing “Happy Birthday.” He is not that bad.

Amazing embroidery based on the map of the infant Internet by Debbie Millman, whose most recent art book, Self-Portrait as Your Traitor, features more magnificent hand-crafted artwork and was among the best art and design books of 2013.
