Where's jeepkahn?

Meaningful discussion outside of the potato gun realm. Projects, theories, current events. Non-productive discussion will be locked.

Doesn't the use of a solid propellant (not for ignition purposes) remove the classification of "potato cannon?" At least according to our definition

I'm sorry, I should probably show more sympathy for the guy who's just lost three fingers and his profession/hobby (one and/or the other) with it, but how do these guys never realise "Hang on, I'm making a freaking pipe bomb here"?

I'm particularly surprised, as this guy was a university student - even if it wasn't a science degree, he must have at least been well enough educated by that point.
Does that thing kinda look like a big cat to you?

Common sense is not a prerequisite for university admission. If it were, a great many would be denied.

I think it's a reflection of the integrity of this forum than the unfortunate/unthinking pianist is apparently unrelated to spudfiles, indeed membership could have potentially imparted sufficient knowledge to prevent the incident.

Hear hear, some of the stupidest people I've ever encountered were at university.

[News media]... I'm just glad these idiots aren't in control of anything that actually matters.
A good portion of the world still gets their information through the tv. There will be similar ignorance as long as the media is still a for-profit industry, as people want what sounds good, not the truth.

I play piano too, just to throw that out there.

Indeed, I am glad we haven't been connected to any of the spudgun-related injuries the media seems to so love.

I play piano and keyboard some too.. But I'm a science and electronics major, not a music major.

Why do you think so many things in this world get screwed up. Its retarded how many impractical and generally not smart people come out of uni with an engineering degree, then go off to work with things that have the potential to kill people.

Think about how many products and things you've looked at and thought "gee, why the hell didn't they make it like this?"

OK lets keep this on topic. I'm letting this stay open so Lockednloaded can get his question answered.
Look if you must.

I answered L&L's post... If it stays on topic leave it up so i can answer inquiries on my absence... And as soon as it warms up enough for the co2 to go from solid to gas(well it seems that cold lately), i'll see about getting some vids and stuff up...
