  • SR-71 Blackbird - It's so badass that it has to refuel right after it takes off. The plane is built to expand at high speeds so it actually leaks fuel on the ground. "To allow for thermal expansion at the high operational temperatures the fuselage panels were manufactured to fit only loosely on the ground. Proper alignment was only achieved when the airframe heated due to air resistance at high speeds, causing the airframe to expand several inches. Because of this, and the lack of a fuel sealing system that could handle the thermal expansion of the airframe at extreme temperatures, the aircraft would leak JP-7 jet fuel onto the runway before it took off."

    • Considering alternatives to Pootle due to its horrible performance.
    • Playing with Transifex instead. Better performance (as proven by transifex.net, though no way to do pre- and post-processing of weird l10n types (I am looking at you, SUMO) yet. Also, very picky about malformed .po files.
  • Da Vinci's flying machines: Never flew, but looked cool.
