School's out!!!

Unread postAuthor: potatoflinger » Fri Jun 15, 2007 11:14 am

Today was the last day of school for me, and on the bus on the way home, I was thinking of what I could do with all of my school papers, and I thought, why not use them as ammo? I took five sheets of paper and taped them together end to end, then rolled them up into a tube, and then covered the tube with electrical tape, and they were amazing. The cool thing about the paper ammo is that you can make them pointed on one end, or make them fit any barrel you have. They give a whole new meaning to "blunt forced trauma" :lol:

Start Feb 7th, 9 weeks of school - 2 weeks break - 10weeks of school - 2weeks break - 11weeks of school - 2weeks break - 7weeks of school - exams till dec 05 - 8weeks break. then repeat.

I've been out of school for about 1 week. I have a whole summer of fun ahead of me! I thought about shooting my books with my copper piston marble sniper (gotta post pics of that soon...), but then I noticed the gas can in my garage :twisted: .

Two friends and I cumpled up all our papers and made a mound about 4 feet tall (no joke! It was nuts!). Then I poured 2 gallons of gas on the pile! I lit it by throwing a gas soaked rag on it from about 15 feet away. Man I felt the shockwave from there!

It was fun until we noticed how thick the black smoke from it was. It musta been visable from like 2 miles away! Then all the papers started flying away! We were running around like crazy trying to put them out!

Ahhhhh, summmer.

There's nothing wrong with starting a fire with gasoline just don't be a dumbass and get it all over yourself and then stand really close to it when you light it.
