Ailerons are the flaps closest to the wing tip on the trailing edge of the wing, and can be used to roll the aircraft around its longitudinal axis. This is called an aileron roll, not to be confused with the more commonly touted (but oft-misused) barrel roll, where the flight path follows a helical course as if it were inside a giant invisible barrel. The only thing they have in common is the craft is inverted at the mid-point of both maneuvers.
A cinnamon roll can be thrown at a walker in the midst of the inevitable zombie apocalypse, feeding and distracting it momentarily so that you may have the chance to escape.
Tune in to “Necessary Condescension” next week, where we explain how planes in flight have less to do with the Bernoulli principle, and have more in common with why juice dribbles down the front of the pitcher when you try to pour it into your glass.
