thats all man.. just thought i would wake some youngsters up..


Like he already said he knows what caused it, i've done the same thing but with a bbmg. i'm sure most of us here has made mistakes but some wont admit to it (the know it alls). anyway is the gun repairable and glad nobody ended up as "man down". oh ya and for waking up some youngsters it might wake up some oldsters too "like myself" lol.

the problem with night shots is that you lose most of the flame detail because the camera adjusts to the dark, and then the flame is too bright.

Do not look back, and grieve over the past, for it is gone;
Do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come;
Live life in the present, and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering.

Scott;
Did you hear your cat before you ignited the cannon?

As he/she high tails it out of the room, I heard it say: "There goes that numb nuts again, trying to blow himself up!"

I noticed in another of your videos that the cat was right there helpinig you out.

You realize the cat will tell your girlfriend about the hole in the carpet so it won't get accused of that carpet damage, don't you?

It seems you like a variety of music, maybe I should make a favorite bands topic, first I have to look how long ago it was done.
