Stupid fools, lol jk. Actually, the heaviest element is ununoctium (otherwise known as Element 118 or Unnamed). Unfortunately, 118 is soooo unstable it wont last for more than a few milliseconds. Markfh11q, do you care at all about Mother Earth? Do you not know what is in TVs/ computer screens? They have very nasty stuff in there to let you know. In other words, FIND ANOTHER TARGET ARSEHOLE! Ehem, sorry 'bout that but really do find something better to shoot. Saving the Earth one post at a time. Spud

What the hell?
You know that one TV is nothing compared to all of the ones found in landfills.
And he probably cleans up after shooting or the TV is in a place where the enviroment isn't a major factor.

Well I tried lubricating the ball today and firing it, I used water, and then used dish soap, the ball came out a little faster, but bubbles started coming up around the bottom of the barrel, and I think I have a link down there, and actually when I poor water in the barrel, water comes out in a pretty big quantity, so i think the ball isnt firing fast enough cuz im loosing a lot of pressure at the bottom of the barrel. That or 40 psi isnt enough to get a tennis ball going more than 20 feet?
