Burning off your eyebrows and half of the hair on your head isn't exactly something to be bragging about.


i think its plenty to be proud of. you haven't lived till you drink a pint of tequila then about blow yourself up. and believe me i've played with propane before. but i like the simplicity of a aerosol cannon. some one always has fuel for it somewhere.

Indeed,
I actually find my more complex cannons not that fun to shoot, while my basic spray and pray cannons are a blast

I find my most complex cannon (my hybrid) the most fun to shoot of all my cannons, simply because it is devastating to whatever target it is aimed at. Sometimes it is good to return to the basics though, because such cannons are very fun to shoot.

People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.
