My answer is "English Autumn".

I need enough good weather to be able to finish the prep work, then a good morning in order to be able to film. (Because of the low sun at this time of year and surrounding trees/hedges/buildings casting shadows, the light in the afternoon isn't really enough for a good video..)

Still trying though.

Wow. Just a couple of days ago I made a projectile splitting video albeit without cans on either side. Its a pretty amazing coincidence but, I guess you just beat me to the punch.

Unfortunately, the contest was announced after I had left for university. Not wanting to miss out, I put together the following from a video taken in 2008, which I never released. Apologies in advance for the excessive compression, but the internet connection here is terrible.

Perhaps your criteria are too specific.
Have you considered looking for one which is not involved in a carnal act?

Haha! That made my day :D

I am just so tired of not finding the parts I need around here.. I am also very short on money as I am investing heavily in school..

Well, this should really get back on topic or a moderator should clean the thread up. A few entries and seven pages of text is a chat, not a contest.. Well, a writing contest..
