I kept that one in mind as I tackled how to display the flag. First, I took stock of materials at hand. I have a 20-foot piece of bamboo I’d cut to retrieve Frisbees, kites, and small children from trees. I make it a point to keep about 1,000 yards of Gorilla tape on hand at all times. And an equal amount of rope, from paracord to ¾-inch nylon braid. With the stick, string, and tape, a motivated man - especially an experienced outdoor content provider - could easily construct a superconducting supercollider.
