    That was hydrogen filled vs. what is helium (non-flammable) gas filled. I still see the humor, though.

    What's worse is the sweatpants wearing "blimp like" operators of the blimps the skies will be filled with floating Subway restaurants....or would that sector of the market go to Blimpie?

    Remote delivery only.

    Won't replace trucks ever.

    And sadly I was wondering how I could get licensed to operate one of those.

    Think about it. Looking down on all the poor shmucks on the Jersey turnpike whilst me and my dirigible just float on by.....

    Plus I could post mean messages to the DOT at the scalehouse!
