It's time once again for everyone's favorite feature: educational films!
We are in the 1930s and we're learning about beavers (the animal, so stop snickering) and gliding.
Without further ado:
No sound to this one which would normally mean it's pretty boring, but I found this strangely hypnotic to watch. I definitely learned a bit (assuming our knowledge of beavers has not dramatically advanced in the last 100 years). And the cute factor goes up exponentially when some young beavers are introduced 2/3 of the way in.
(Note: all double entendres above were entirely intentional).
This looks awesome.
This film covers the sport of gliding. After an early portion that covers a toy recreation of Charles Lindbergh's glider, the movie moves into the actual early gliders. No cockpit. Just you and the open air.
I've gotta think this was an amazing sport to try. And Boy Scouts used to do it. How awesome would that have been?
