Unbelievable!
What is the "year of the vapor cone"? Personal goal?

I've heard of "The year of the cat", and "The year of living dangerously" and even "The year of the quiet sun",  so why not "The year of the vapor cone" :)

What would be really cool, would be a vapor cone coming off the land speed record attempt jet car as it goes through the sound barrier. B)
