  • Technically blimps don't have a frame, zeppelins do. But your point stands.
  • Actually, for this particular blimp everything but the point is standing.
  • FYI: Technically it is dirigibles that have frames, unless you are German and then you are correct in calling them zeppelins.
  • Yeah, but Led Dirigible is a shitty band name.
  • Dense Dirigible?
  • Thanks for starting my new band.
  • I'm no metalurgist but I think Lead is a horrible material to use in a zepplin.
  • They picked the name after some famous record producer told them their music was going to be about as popular as a lead zeppelin or something along those lines (fall as fast as a lead zeppelin maybe?)
  • The version of the story that I heard was that Keith Moon of The Who said that they were going to sink like a lead balloon.
  • That sounds more like a memory and not a half memory so everyone should trust Currywurst.
  • Ya, the idea being that they would crash even harder than a lead balloon. They dropped the "a" from lead because they thought people would mispronounce it like "leed"
  • Mildly interestingly, Leed was a very popular soft drink ("soda") in some countries (e.g. mine: New Zealand), owned by Coca Cola. The more internationally known Sprite (tm) replaced it in 1984.
  • Zis ist vhy ve contacted an aeronaut for consultation instead of a metallurgist.
  • Even without that, dirigible is just a horrible sounding term anyway, absolute crap, and zeppelin is friggin' awesome no matter what language you speak. Zep Zep Zeppelin. Yeah! If you're going to call them dirigibles you might as well just go all the way and call them flyable inflated turds. Blimp is pretty awful as well as it sounds so close to blump.
  • FYI: Technically a Zeppelin is a rigid airship. A blimp, rigid, and semi rigid airships are all dirigibles. A dirigible is any steerable, powered aerostat(lighter than air craft). The word dirigible comes from the French verb diriger (to steer).
  • Technically you are exactly correct.
  • the best kind of correct.
