Scientists at Rolls Royce built a gun specifically to
launch dead chickens at the windshields of airliners
and military jets all travelling at maximum velocity. The
idea is to simulate the frequent incidents of collisions
with airborne fowl to test the strength of the windshields.
American engineers heard about the gun and were eager
to test it on the windshields of their new high speed
trains. Arrangements were made, and a gun was sent to
the American engineers.
When the gun was fired, the engineers stood shocked as the
chicken hurled out of the barrel, crashed into the
shatterproof shield, smashed it to smithereens,
blasted through the control console, snapped the engineer's
back-rest in two and embedded itself in the back wall
of the cabin like an arrow shot from a bow.
The horrified Yanks sent Rolls Royce the disastrous results
of the experiment, along with the designs of the
windshield and begged the British scientists for
