Destruction of Twitches Science Project

Unread postAuthor: TwitchTheAussie » Mon Jun 25, 2007 6:00 am

Right to fill you in I was making a combustion for a school science project. Now I had gotten to wrong pipe so my connector didnt slide into or onto my chamber so I thought its a combustion it wont go on me. How wrong I was.
To cut a short story even shorter I finally figured out my sparking problem and after dumping one of those butane canisters that was leaking into the chamber and not seeing any ignition I decided to check my peizo.

After an hour of airing out the butane was still in it. So much to my stupidity I replaced the sparker and clicked. Shortly following this was a pain in my hands and some slight deafness. The barrel and connector hit my lounge and the spud followed the chamber into hitting me.

Now Ive learnt my lesson and also Im asking for an extension on my assignment :lol:

Nice. Work of a pro, man.

I've only had one major cannon failure... (Maybe it was just my stupidity) but I have a piece of PVC in my thigh form it.
