    Phil, that is a .fascinating little video. Thanks.

    I may soon be in trouble with my wife who will demand to know what became of her shampoo.

    For further analysis and information look up "The Dambusters" about the science behind bursting some dams on the Rhur, during the early stages of WW2...

    Nice find Phil. I thought I was the only one thinking of that.

    I like the shampoo bit. Guess I will be playing around with it next time around. Can't resist.
