HecklerSpray

Unread postAuthor: MrCrowley » Tue Nov 18, 2008 1:39 pm

Anyone here know the website HecklerSpray? It's from the UK I think.
Anyway it's like a news blog, but they like to take the piss out of celebrities and stuff, really funny.

Anyway they have a thing called 'WEBTHUMP' where they list top 10 things they have found on the internet every few days, like videos, games etc.

Anyway I decided to email them with a link to my golfball cannon on Instructables, and they put it at number 1! :P

Just scroll down the page a bit:
http://www.hecklerspray.com/

They get about 700,000 unique hits a month, if only 10% visit the link to my cannon, that's 70,000 people.

Just thought i'd share that with you :)

edit: and yeah I do realise they spelt yards wrong, they put years :lol:

It's funny, they claim "a pneumatic cannon that fires golfballs 450 years."

However, nice PR there Crowley.

I'd be happy to see some new SF members, but we couldn't handle 70,000. 70 would be pushing it in terms of a rush of new people - well, active newbies at least.

Haha, I reckon only a few thousand would click the link anyway, 90% of that would probably be entertained by the thought of a golfball travelling several hundred feet per second and forget about it. Then maybe 1 or 2% would think about building one. Maybe .5% will end up making a cannon, and a fraction of that finding the site.

So my estimate, about 5-6 new members :wink:

Oh no! However will we cope with that influx?
You've doomed us all Crowley!

No wonder they call you the wickedest man in the world! :tongue5:
