pop bottle launcher

Post stuff here pertaining to non-spud related projects that many forum members seem to enjoy. Hovercrafts, dirt bikes, electronics, propane-powered bikes, go-karts, etc. This is more of a project area,
not a place to chat about what you saw yesterday on TV. Remember to keep it within the forum rules!

Launch a pop bottle 200 feet in the air.
With some 1/2" metal or pvc pipe, some wood, an a compressor, and a bunch of 2-liter pop bottles you can launch bottles into the sky.

Err - I launch bottles into the air - and a good amount more than that 200 feet.

That post made no sense... Please enlighten us further, and you'd do well to do it... before a sarcastic moderator comes along.

Add me to the can't wait crowd as well.

This is weird though. I made a pop bottle cannon around 5pm today. It worked REALLY good the first time but the bottle severly deformed after I shot it. It was actually cool.

I've noticed:
Most of the assinine topics are started by new members, with an IP address coming out of the VA area... Coincidence? Or perhaps a single user, signing up with multiple accounts?
