Not a spud gun but a spud catapult

Unread postAuthor: bullrees » Fri Jan 22, 2010 9:24 pm

Me and my son were bored one day so to the internet we go. We found some info on catapults ..so why not launch a spud.

The tease
Watch close..
Dog likes taters.
Misfire.
Son almost catapults his face.
Girl jumps fence and drops cookies then just brushes them off.
Dog makes kid look stupid.
and here we go....

I loved that part :), but I believe forum rules frown on using living things as projectiles as well as targets :P

Tell that to Nokia. I do believe it was them who used a cieling fan to swing a poor cat around a few times and then fling him into a wall on an ad :wink: Oh and its ok to admit you laughed at that.
Back to the topic. Wish I had a dad like that. We really do need more family time going around.

I think my favorite part is that the neighbor girl is telling him what to do the whole time and he ignores her. Like a manly man would do...so I've heard :p

@ TwitchTheAussie love the avatar RIP Dime..one of a kind.

I have many ways to wreck your day...don't make me use em...lol
Seriously though I grew up without a dad so i always promised myself if I ever had a kid I'd do stuff like this with him/her.

Some other projects we have planed.

Growing Bioluminescent Algae
http://www.instructables.com/id/Grow-Yo ... Materials/

The site to buy them seems to be off line at post but the idea is to have a fish tank type thing that will be bioluminescent when taped/touched.

The one we will prolly never do.

Glow in the dark car
Imagine a car painted with glow paint streaking by you at night....yeah awesome. I can see myself leaving the car in the garage with the lights on all day to charge up the paint then going out at night to freak people out.

The problem with the plan is the price of the glow paint.
