  • Pumpkin Cannon!

    I WANT ONE!




    Pumpkins would be so awesome to shoot at things!

    Well, you could get plans for a trebuchet and launch them with that. They're medieval technology, so you don't need welding gear and torque wrenches and the like.

    Alternatively, you'll need an air compressor, a pressure chamber, a manually-triggered release valve, an impressive length of strong steel pipe, a short steel cylinder that's a good fit for the inside of the pipe, grease, a strong steel bar, some sort of cup or plate for the pumpkin, a collar for the inside of the pipe, a strong spring, two hand-cranks, two worm-gears, two big cog wheels, some sort of mounting frame with fold-out, lock-down legs and some tools. The more range you want, the heavier it'll all be and the tougher your frame will have to be.

      With the combined knowledge, inteeresting personality quirks ... and access to resources we as a group have ...

      Can you imagine how dangerous we'd be if we formed a town?

        town? we could successfully form our own country. and depending on where we locate to do this no one would bother contesting it. maybe a small pacific island where we can attract tourists
        to find me, you must be good.
        to catch me, you must be quick
        to defeat me, you must be joking.

          Okay. Next time the Hawaii hotspot shifts and pokes a new island above the waves, we grab it. Agreed?

                    And the capitol city could be Breedenopolis. And there could be other places like Jenniville, and the DragonCon Goddess Mountains, Happy Goth Springs. And the biggest export could be Leafblowers and Utilikilts!

                        Ooo! And I want to head up the Argument Department!

                        Or maybe the Insult Department!
                        It's all fun and games until someone loses an eyeball. Then...
                        Hey, free eyeball!

                              ooh, I like the Argument Department aka government.
                              I think there's already a breedenville. This should be PantyLand. Just THINK of the tourist potential. Walk the Dragoncon mountains to the Goddess temple at the top and buy souvenears of horns and the corset shop in the foot hills. Wonder her vast tracks of land and dine at the Husbands Beef Steak house.
                              We would totally have a chocolate spa.
