The Hot Air Balloon Book [EPUB]

The Hot Air Balloon Book [EPUB]
The Hot Air Balloon Book: Build and Launch Kongming Lanterns, Solar Tetroons, and More by Clive Catterall
2013 | EPUB | 7.66MB

More than a century before the Wright brothers first flight, humans were taking to the skies in hot air balloons. Today, with basic craft skills, you can build and safely launch your own balloons using inexpensive, readily available materials. Author and inventor Clive Catterall provides illustrated, step-by-step instructions for eight different homemade models, as well as the science and history behind them. Some, like the Solar Tetroon or the Trash Bag Sausage, are made from plastic bags and tape. Others, like the Khom Loi or the Kongming Lantern, are built using tissue paper and wire.

The Hot Air Balloon Book also shows readers ways to heat the interior air that lifts these balloons, from tea candles to hair dryers, kitchen toasters to the suns warming rays. Always keeping safety in mind, the author includes detailed guidelines on when and where open flames are appropriate and the proper weather conditions to launch these lighter-than-air craft.

The Man's Manual [EPUB]
The Man's Manual: Poker Secrets, Beer Lore, Waitress Hypnosis, and Much, Much More by Gregg Stebben
2008 | EPUB | 3.08MB

Every man needs to know how to flirt with a waitress, right? And how to make sure beer is part of every meal, not just breakfast? And how to work out to actually get a workout? Now all this information, and less "manly" but no less essential tips, can be found in one place.

The only book a man needs to lead a well-rounded life, The Man's Manual provides instruction on "inspirational sex," urban tenting, what to do to with your thumb after you whack it with a hammer, and much, much more. Here are succinct, step-by-step directions for impersonating a smart person, and landing an airplane safely. Learn to tie a bowtie, fight cancer (consume green tea and tomatoes, but not necessarily at the same time), and organize a poker game. Determine how exactly to become a sex object, how to talk lingerie, and how to make love like a pro. There is material on baking brownies, cooking geese, and even hunting down your own venison. The sheer amount of information contained in this friendly, accessible book will enchant even the most discriminating reader.
