A quad's life - Nature abhors a vacuum


There it is, my garbage can with a Dixie paper plate stuck face down at the bottom of it.

Who knew that this would form a vaccum so strong that it would defy all attempts with a reacher- any reacher, name the brand and type and cost, to yank it out?  Who knew that the diameter of a Dixie plate exactly fit in the bottom of my garbage can?

Not this quad, for sure, or I would never have carelessly flung the plate into the garbage can when said can had no garbage bag.

Turns out, however, that lack of dexterity be damned, there are other ways to free a plate.

They involve duct tape and playing with sharp objects.

Nature abhors a vacuum.
