Scientists at NASA built a gun specifically to launch
Standard 4 pound dead chickens at the windshields of
Airliners, military jets and the space shuttle, all traveling
At maximum velocity. The idea is to simulate the frequent

Incidents of collisions with airborne fowl to test the strength
Of the windshields.

British 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 British
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 Brits sent NASA the disastrous results
Of the experiment, along with the designs of the
Windshield and begged the U.S. . Scientists for suggestions.


NASA responded with a one-line memo --






























"Defrost the chicken."

I remember a "Ripley's Believe it or Not" episode on this same thing... the fellow who invented the gun, his name was Col. Sanders...
