Inasmuch as the first liquid rocket fuel was pure ethyl alcohol, any drink containing alcohol would, indeed, taste like rocket fuel.

And you can thank the Nazis, not the Republicans, for that.

lol, exactly.

Now that would be a change. [/quote]

From Wikipedia …
Goddard began experimenting with liquid oxygen and liquid-fueled rockets in September 1921, and bench tested the first liquid-fueled engine in November 1923. It had a cylindrical combustion chamber, using impinging jets to mix and atomize liquid oxygen and gasoline.

I don’t know if he is a Republican, but I’m sure he wasn’t a Nazi.

The V-2, produced by real Nazis, used a water-alcohol mixture, but I can’t find the proof.

Here is a recent poster with a similar artwork, but helas, no communists

Thanks.

I always thought that the Concord Militiaman ought to have a rifle (rather than a musket) in his hands, and what better than an M14?

The only thing that would further improve that statue would be big red letters carved into it reading MOLON LABE.

Yes. Both the V2 missile and the American Redstone missile used as propellant liquid oxygen and a 75% (150 proof) ethyl alcohol-water mixture.

And yes, as you’d probably guess, not all of the fuel made it into the rocket.

The V-2 engineers often held “parties with rocket fuel” using the ethyl alcohol delivered as propellant for the rocket. In common with later rocketry projects, the engineers were under tremendous strain and worked very hard but remained enthusiastic.

In honor of the morons that think white tuxedos are a good way to get past the secret service. I have to admit that communists seem to be better artists than neo-Nazis…

This says it all.
