Wow, this is quite cool. I just want to see it in action first before I build one.

Yet another use for the mighty J-B Weld.

Man, I love this kind of backyard ingenuity. It's like a one-man Junkyard Wars or something--classic stuff!

You people need to stop giving me ideas on how to blow up my house, because one of these days, I'm actually going to copy one of these crazy people and make a crazy exploding thinger.

(It'll be totally sweet)

OK, his next task is the backyard Bussard Ramjet.
Then I'll be impressed.

Awesome link, clockwork, thanks.

okay, yeah, awesome ingenuity, but seriously.... How is this thing useful? I mean, you have to get a ramjet up to speed to even ignite, right?

What could you attach this to that it would actually be relevant?
