"It's the thing with the screen on it that looks like a TV. Does it

and the space shuttle, all traveling at maximum velocity. The idea is
to simulate the frequent incidents of collisions with airborne fowl to
test the strength of the windshields. British engineers heard about
the gun and were eager to test it on the windshields of their new
high-speed trains. Arrangements were made. But when the gun was fired,
the engineers stood shocked as the chicken hurtled out of the barrel,
crashed into the shatterproof shield, smashed it to smithereens,
