Looks like some sort of telephone pole. I think he is dead, judging by the fact doctors arn't swarming around him.

You can tell he's dead by the swelling of the abdomen/stomach, and also no doctors around him,(who just said that is rite). Bamboo does dry out and crack, if you use it for a chamber, it's a time bomb waiting to blow up.

U could do something like this http://www.floridaairsoft.com/reviews/at4/
and just house the gun in one big piece of pipe or in your case bamboo. I think that would be pretty cool.

Look, he oviously fell from a hight onto a telephone pole or something, thats why it is cut with a chainsaw because they can't just yank him off. He didn't live long but long enough for his leg to swell up.

ANY WAY, you could just build a cannon and put bamboo over it, to give it a natural look. Or camoflage.

in the upcoming presidential election, there will be several candidates who will be running, one of whom is Hillary Clinton. Now WAIT A SECOND!!! I though there was some sort of rule that prevented someone from serving more than two terms in office. Vote Against Hillary: Presidential Elections 08

In the phillapines they have combustion cannons made from bamboo they get huge lenghts of the large diametre stuff that grow all around the place and they make them into combustion cannons they ignite them with a small length of burning bambo which they stick in a hole they made in the bottom.Next time im in the phillapines i'll get some pics.This topic made me remember that it was 6 years ago but.
