Noooowwww I get it :D And, I applied to the local plumbing store by the name of Ferguson's. Its a pretty big chain and my girlfriend's father started it (Mr. Ferguson) and I'm pretty sure there's an employee discount :D Its really funny though because I had only been in there twice and they already know me as the potato gun guy :D

Im prototyping a oxy/hydrogen hyubrid as well!

As I only have copper avaiolable to me, Im sticking to 1.5/2X mixes.
And cause its my first hybrid, and Ive kinda gotten used to having all my apendages.

I will have to build a special pump with 2 check valves.
No metering needed, woohoo!
And my electrolyser, mmm, yes...

I'm not really worried about discussing my summer projects, because I already know who's winning the contest, and it isn't me.
