Lucas Post, not really renowned for anything meaningful passed away in turmoil yesterday at St Boniface's Home For The Seriously Delusional, Crankshaft, Fla.
Post, a would-be inventor lived his life in pursuit of his dream, an ejector seat for helicopters.
Despite the weight of common sense and the danger of overhead rotors spinning so fast that they would liquidize any potential ejectee, Post gamely pursued his dream.
Despite advice from the USAF and NASA Post continued to insist that his idea was a potential lifesaver and stated that it was all a matter of timing.
Lucas Post, 1926-2008, passed away strapped to a gurney under heavy sedation, aged 82. He leaves a widow, two sons, an ostrich and considerable debt.
