Quote from: Mandingo on May 13, 2014, 08:45:08 AMWhat's the difference between Zeppelins and airships, if there is one?
Quote from: DunkleSeele on May 13, 2014, 08:48:18 AMZeppelins are rigid airships (most of them, at least). There's also non-rigid and semi-rigid ones. That said, nowadays the two terms are generally used interchangeably, at least in the common language.
Quote from: Mandingo on May 13, 2014, 08:55:58 AMSo all Zeppelins are airships, but not all airships are Zeppelins?Like all cows are mammals, but not all mammals are cows?
Quote from: AllPurposeAtheist on May 13, 2014, 03:00:13 PMThere was actually a guy called Count Zeppelin. He also starred in the Twilight series.
Quote from: AllPurposeAtheist on May 13, 2014, 03:11:15 PMYeah I guess if you're a count you're obligated to keep the family blood line going especially in money. Nothing like a count on food stamps, eh?
