    So I am reading this and several thoughts come to mind.
    A) - the Govt. gave out a grant to study the aerodynamics
    of a Frisbee; so anything is possible?

    B) - where did you hear this, or how did U come up with it?

    C) - would that mean Govt. put you in Trucking?
    I hope you are right, and it works.

    I have never heard of, or came up, with anything like this.
    And I came up with some wild SHIp.
     
    x1Heavy and FlaSwampRat Thank this.

    Don't forget to ask government for a reserve fund to spend on repairs and living expenses. Oh and you forgot about grants for trailer purchasing
