Talk:Mailing it in
From Uncyclopedia, the content-free encyclopedia
The article has been ICU'd, but hey, what do you admins expect? IT WAS MAILED IN!
The Hindenburg crash occurred in Lakehurst, NJ not NYC. Helium is not highly combustible (but hydrogen is) The Hindenburg was filled with hydrogen, not helium. "...rather than heating normal air the way that was done for normal balloons." The Hindenburg was a zeppelin (or blimp) not a "normal balloon". Might make more sense to state it was filled with inexpensive hydrogen instead of helium that was done for other zeppelins.... —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 18.104.22.168 (talk • contribs)

"A third example of mailing it in would be the Hindenburg disaster. The designer of the massive blimp "mailed it in" by choosing to use relatively inexpensive (and highy flammable) helium for his blimp, rather than heating normal air the way that was done for normal balloons. " Helium is an inert gas and is not combustable. It wasn't used because it was very expensive at the time. Instead, they used Hydrogen, a highly combustable gas. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Gw55hughes (talk • contribs)
