I wish I was a dog!

Unread postAuthor: MountainousDew » Sun Apr 19, 2009 3:11 pm

Look what I just found while surfing the great internets! Its a tennis ball slingshot, that holds up to four balls all at the same time! Oh my god, even if I didn't have three dogs I would want one... And I'm sure you do too!

I love dog toys, most of the time they are better than human ones!

After the seeing the "I wish I was a dog!" title, I expected the thread to be along the lines of "...so I could lick my own genitals"

:roll: :D

Seen it before. Cool though!
It probably won't shoot the tennis ball through a chain link fence like a spudgun can.
Nor have the same accuracy level.
I built something similar but gave up on it due to it's accuracy.
There were other old models similar but with four bands.
Stronger latex bands (for exercise) are in a lot of stores too.

BTW, years ago I soaked the bands on a wrist rocket 24 hr.s in mineral oil (baby oil(?) (or mineral spirits???) Can't remember which.
It conditioned the rubber and gave it a much better feel and launch Anyone know about that??, Just wondered.

EDIT:Dang I still type slow!

I like to play blackjack. I'm not addicted to gambling, I'm addicted to sitting in a semi-circle.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

You don't want to be my dog, i buried him 5 days ago after i accidently placed a shipping container on his head, he had a tough head too but to withstand around 4 tonnes of pressure is not easy.

Bloody blue tongue lizards.

Well jook13, I was hoping it would leed to cannon discussion and that's why I let it stay open in the first place, but it didn't so it's going to have to go to www.theopia.com.

@Nova: I'm trying to work out if you're being serious or not...

@mark.f: I'm going to be pedantic. Pink Floyd's official lyrics give the line as "blue skies from pain". I know the word rain makes more sense, but... well.
