Jamie claims that they are going to do things with the launcher that I have never even dreamed of. Sounds like fun!

You can tell how awesome a cannon is by the pressure used.

It would be really cool to have some of the mythbusters team on this forum. You really should give SF a shout-out next time you talk to them. Did they say anything in particular about this launcher or why they wanted to use it? Some details of your meetup would be nice.

ya, if they visited this forum and asked for help when they wanted to make their net gun, they could have not "busted" that myth... or so many other failures, such as trying to blow up a house with Bug Bomb, completely ignoring combustibility limits... Still, I can't wait to see a SpudFiles cannon of mythbusters.

On a side note, how did they find out about your cannon?

Meh.

Just kidding. It'd be pretty neat if they did an episode with your cannon.

I don't have a TV though, so somebody will have to tell me about how it went.
