Flettner Vent

Bink.

My 17 year old (how did that happen) asked me what that thingy was for. And I didn't know.

That won't come as a surprise to most of you, who know that the only thing I do know a lot about is Binking. So in the interest in becoming better informed I found out.

Now that I know what it is, I thought it would make a nice thread title for a post here at LoOTP to attract 'thank you's.

Thank you in advance for any thank you's applied to this post.

This post has been brought to you in conjunction with the Magnus Effect.

Never forget the Magnus Effect.

Anton Flettner was born in Eddersheim.

Eddersheim to Minsk is about 1,000 miles by road.

That route, if taken, passes through Poland, which would be an opportunity to meet up with a fellow Fool.

Darek (a Sprzedawca) by name but not by nature is not his name.

Reminds me, I must get a Stockbridge Damper for my washing line.
Not to be confused with a Strawbridge (Dick)

My SWMBO wasn't overly impressed when I told her I wanted to get a Stockbridge Damper for the washing line (inspired by this post). She reminded me that the whole point of a washing line is to get rid of the dampness.
