[Histonet] OT: Tuesday Tasty Tidbit

I know someone who seems to have lots of wind.
Can I attach one of these "horizontally fixed pitot tubes" to him or would a "vane" do the job?
Seems like a job for a proctologist!

Or should I just put him in the fume hood!

I don't know whether I should post this - ah what the heck!!

Tell the person interested in wind speed that they will need a horizontally fixed pitot tube - as in the kind affixed to the wings of airplanes to measure wind speed! that should get them going!!!! you can find out about pitot tubes in Google website- NASA has a good description with diagrams should they want them (haha!) still chuckling over this one, Judy in Washington
