#3 I just like the idea of an airship landing at WalMart. I mean, I'd forego Amazon for a week to see that.

#5 Airship designs generally call for several 'bags', or separate air chambers, so that it is still airworthy should there be a "hole".

The Hindenberg burned due to its carrying hydrogen instead of helium.

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
