im not allowd to talk about the funny things that happened with my cannon

I designed a valve, only to find out it’s called a “Toolies” piston…
I designed a paintball gun and got it 90% built only to find out that PVC generates to much friction for it to work…
I built an auto-resting hammer valve that worked great… as an air engine, so long as there was a plug in place of the barrel…
I built a piston valve using hot glue for the piston and left it in the barn, hot glue melted slightly and it is now permanently glued to the piston house…
That happened twice…
Spent 20 minutes trying to figure out why my cannon wouldn’t fire, I checked everything from the fill port to the pilot valve, turns out the air compressor hose wasn’t hooked to the air compressor…
Bragged about how good my shoulder cannon is, only to have the sprinkler valve decide it was a good day to not seal…
Fired my 1506A2 from the shoulder and it almost knocked me down...
I fired a heavy steel bolt, with an old wet rag for a wad, recoil forced me to take two steps back, then a third was taken to keep me from falling.
You’ll have to scroll down a bit to see the A2 in that link.
Sad part is that’s only a partial list…
Call me "Judge", it's easier to type.

It's still quoted what it said originally (in other reply).
Having trouble remembering a funny one.
Perhaps I'll rig a pneumatic to a whoopie cushion or something and go for decibels
EDIT: Dang! You guys are fast. Hotwired beet me to the quote thing, and The Judge replied that quick too! (Ooops)
Double, but I have new info and can't stop thinking about this concept since I've logged off/on again.
It's the possibilities.
I was invisioning a small pneumatic with whoopie cushion nozzle, maybe filled by bernzomatic propane (Smell/Possible Flames too at some point!!!)
Anyway, filled with maybe chocolate ice-cream.
Possible Stuff like: fire at the ceiling above the bathroom stall next to you and go FFwWrt,Blam "OMG, I am so sorry!!!
Also I invision a statue of some animal and a sign reading: "Please don't pull the (horses?) tail" Hooked to an electric solenoid and maybe a hidden camera. Same type set-up only with chili maybe
EDIT: I shall call this one a "Thundercrapper"
EDIT2: It could also be hidden inside a toilet and when the seat is moved FFFPLOWW!!! (By solenoid switch) Definately a "Dirty trick" It would be!
Only funny thing i can think of at the moment is shooting blanks while workers from the farm were on their way home. There they peacefully walking allong the roaed, when Bang, Bang me and my couzin shot at the same time. Quite a few of them hit the deck, in a cloud of dust.
And walking down that same road on another day i decided ill shoot off a blank, forgeting about the golf ball i had loaded. So i went ahead and fired in no particular direction, felt the recoil, and thought oh Cr@p, then the distinct sound of golf ball on a tin roof. Never found the ball, but found the dent in the roof, lucily it wasnt a house roof.
If It Didn't Go BOOM! Then It Didn't WORK!
Two more of mine:
1. Me and my friends were at a park with my first combustion, some potatoes and oranges. Well we ran out of potatoes and it got REALLY chilly for March, like 35F, so the cannon was being really unreliable. Well we thought it would be fun if I stood in a little toy house on the playground part and if they shot at me (not powerful enough to make that dangerous) I heard a boom and 5 seconds later saw the orange roll right by. It was such a FUBAR shot we all just laughed.
2. I was having trouble shooting a potato straight up and I kept clicking the sparker and finally it shot. This was the first time my dad ever watched and this was a really good shot, so my ears were ringing a tiny bit (mind you I now wear earmuffs with my new combustion) and I just hear a muffled "WOAAHH" and turn around with him laughing and looking in the air.
That made me laugh.
I've got some good ones. I was getting ready to go outside from my kitchen with my modded sprinkler valve paintball gun and the chamber was pumped up, but when I was in my kitchen the pilot blew off and shot the paintball in my house somewhere. I looked for 30 minutes, but then I looked at my kitchen ceiling and there was a huge red stain on a white ceiling, I had to stand on a stool and repaint it before my parents got home.
Another story is about my water rocket prototype awhile back. It was piloted by a ball valve and my means of opening it was a hammer, so I hit the valve backwards the hammer flew out of my hand and hit the window of my car, I thought I was good until I saw a 1in. scratch on my dad's Land Rover . My parents still don't know haha. I'm not sure I can talk about the other one but lets just say it involves me, my friend, a dingy, boy scouts, a water cannon and a used 70 foot naval ship. I'll save that one for another time.
VH was awesome!!

The in-organics are on at the moment (where you dump all your junk on the footpath outside your house and it gets collected by the council) and I had a few TV's close to my house.
So me and a friend decide to put a golfball through one, I didn't want to go all the way through, so I thought 60psi would be enough with the V.A.L.
Anyway we line up the TV, I charge up the gun, load it, take aim and fire. The TV makes a huge bang as the glass shatters into thousands of pieces and I think I saw something go over my head. So I put the gun down and we're all laughing as we're inspecting the damage, my friend then asks 'Where'd the golfball go, there's no exit hole' and as soon as he finished his sentence we heard the golfball land on someones roof far behind us.
Strange how the golfball bounced off with so much force while still destroying the TV, the glass was about 1.75cm thick too.
When I was like 15, we used to shoot airguns in the woods near a tennis court. The people were cool when they saw us (really cool looking back).
Anyway, one time a guy did decide to tell us to leave.
So my friend got our tennis ball combustion ,and from the woods (like snipers) we were firing tennis balls into the court
(not at him, just across the court).
It was a pretty powerful one most of the time (powered by gasoline) And the balls would go through the chain link fence change direction a little and get stuck in the other side.
The guy looked so stupid looking around like WTF??? we went back a few times for laughs. Course that was before everyone had cell-phones.
Later my older brother saw it and he's kind of macho guy, well he wanted to see it shoot. So I put starting fluid and it had a huge c:b ratio.
The shot was a lucky mix and it shot a huge flame and kicked like a mule.
Even He was like "D*mn, you'll blow yourself up."
I put it up for good after that one because I thought it would DDT or something.
