This is a follow up video to my airsoft minigun project that was posted in 2011. This version of a cloud BBMG is less expensive and much easier to build. This model is also well suited for a backpack mounted air chamber to make it into a flamethrower design. I plan on showing that particular modification in an upcoming video. The total cost of this build is about $15.

Soda Bottle
5/16″ x 8″ Automotive Brake Line
1/4″ Quick Release Air Compressor Fitting
Air Compressor Blow Gun

Poetic Celebrity Parody – Everything Is About Bobby Brown

TMZ reports he became angry after the Houston family refused to seat his entourage of nine people. He had apparently been invited with a plus two. Read more

Having a hissy fit at your ex wife funeral?
Really classy Bobby Brown
I knew you were not the sharpest knife
But I thought that in the presence of you daughter
In the front of whole world
You would find the strength
Of a man
Not to behave like a child
You showed again and again
And again
What a lowlife
You truly are!
You make everything about you
You are shameless, Bobby Brown!!!

I will love him

News Mash: The United States Loves Canada. Canada responds immediately with, “No-Arrgghh!”

Sure…

It’s not like it’s a secret or anything.

South Park hates Canada.

Who doesn’t know this?

But you have to admit…

They do it in such a smart way!

But?

That doesn’t mean the rest of the United States shares South Park’s sentiment.

Quite the contrary…

In fact?

Americans LOVE Canada.

And by a landslide!

[via Hot Air]  Andrew Malcolm brings us some good news on the front of international peace and love, but some bad news for the Great White North. It turns out that of all the many nations in the world, aside from our own, Americans love Canada the best.

A new Gallup Poll finds that it’s become Americans’ most very favorite foreign country both now and in the 20 years Gallup has inquired about such things.

Americans may not have been there and may be abysmally ignorant about a next-door neighbor (or neighbour) that is by far its largest trading partner, best friend and closest ally. (Until the last election Harvard grad Barack Obama thought they had a president up there.)

But Gallup finds that a record 96% of Americans are feeling the love for that northern land of toques that’s 10% larger than the United States with one-tenth the population. U.S. lovers of Canada are up 4% just in the past year.

In fact, liking Canada is almost unanimous in the 57 states. Only 3% of Americans think unfavorably (or unfavourably) of Canada, and they probably don’t even know where it is. (North of everything except Alaska and Detroit.)

But that’s good news, right? I mean, they’re not just our neighbor and largest trading partner, but they are responsible for the other half of one of the longest international land borders in the world. We want to be on good terms, and so should they, right? Not so fast there, back bacon fans.

When Americans start paying attention to anything, even if it’s positive, they tend to unintentionally smother, crush the bushes and walk all over the flower beds, telling you how really glad they are to be there, you know what I mean? It’s as if Randy McQuaid came for the weekend — and stayed a month.

Yep.

We Americans are tough on the things we love.

The way we love things?

Well, it reminds me of the love the abominable snowman had for Bugs Bunny.

Remember that?

Forewarned, Canada…

You poor thing, you.

Forewarned!

do not open

News Mash: Pandora-like boxes suddenly appearing on US shores now? Fantastic! *no*

The Story of ‘Pandora’s Box’?

Is an ancient Greek myth revolving around human behavior, through the execution of two very basic concepts…

Caution and curiosity.

[via Pathenon] In Greek mythology, Pandora was the first woman on earth. Zeus ordered Hephaestus, the god of craftsmanship, to create her and he did, using water and earth.

The gods endowed her with many talents; Aphrodite gave her beauty, Apollo music, Hermes persuasion, and so forth. Hence her name: Pandora, “all-gifted”.

When Prometheus stole fire from heaven, Zeus took vengeance by presenting Pandora to Epimetheus, Prometheus’ brother.

With her, Pandora had a jar box which she was not to open under any circumstance. Impelled by her natural curiosity, Pandora opened the jar box, and all evil contained escaped and spread over the earth.

She hastened to close the lid, but the whole contents of the jar box had escaped, except for one thing which lay at the bottom, and that was Hope (Elpis).[Read More]

With that said, it should be noted?

I cannot possibly stress enough how very important caution is…

When it comes to boxes of unknown origins, despite one’s curiosity.

[via The Extinction Protocol] February 14, 2012 – As of late afternoon Feb. 8, Bill Hanshumaker, a public marine specialist and (Ph.D) doctor of marine science at the Hatfield Marine Science Center in nearby Newport, told Huliq in an interview that, “I don’t know what they are.” In turn, Doctor Hanshumaker said he’s advised “surf monitoring” about these strange metal boxes that suddenly appeared along local beaches Feb. 6, and now seem to be multiplying like Star Trek “Tribbles.” The photograph that accompanies this report – taken during the afternoon of Feb. 8 near Bray’s Point — of yet another strange metal box stuck in the surf up is one of a possible group of a dozen or more that have been sited up and down West Coast beaches.

[…]

In turn, the metal boxes along Oregon, Washington State and Northern California beaches are now being photographed, documented and examined by local experts. Also, due to recent storms out in the Pacific Ocean, the “boxes” are being more or less ignored; with passing comments in local coastal newspaper,” state Errol, a Bray’s Point local and a member of the Oregon UFO “watchers” group that gathers both here and at nearby Stonefield Beach to scan the sky for flying objects in much the same way bird lovers use binoculars for birth watching. Errol notes that it’s always a sort of “communication breakdown” that always seems to go the same way; be it a UFO sighting or even something like “these humming metal boxes.”  [Read More]

Put the box down and back away from the box…

Holy Hecate – Do. NOT. Open!

Have you people learned NOTHING from Pandora?

Jeez.

Don’t we have enough crappy stuff to deal with, in the world, as it is?

Come on…

Why add to?

no ptt

News Mash: HO, 2TXT or N2TXT…That’s kind of the question!

Translations: Hold on, to text or not to text?

Very much the question at hand!

After all, when it comes to texting…

Science has just NOW discovered?

Can be so bad for you.

In fact?

Yeah…

Stunts the brain.

[via Daily Mail]TXT BAD 4 UR BRAIN? Text messaging can dent your reading abilities, say scientists

Frequent text messaging may stunt reading skills, according to new research comparing text users with people who preferred to read newspapers and books.

Researchers found that heavy texters were less able to understand new words – and less willing to accept them.

People who read ‘traditional’ printed language such as books, magazines and newspapers are much more comfortable with accepting and understanding new words.[Read more]

Pffft…

Yeah.

No kidding.

Tip: Watch for the woman walking, or trying to, and texting in the background of the newscast.

Girl is texting in background of live news cast and falls over steps

In others words…

Texting?

CWOT.

Aporia Politico: Officials are just making it easy for an ‘Evil Geniuses’ world takeover, aren’t they?

The ‘officials’ who run our governments…

Those whom we give leave to make decisions on OUR behalf?

Are so stupid it hurts.

And by ‘hurt’?

I mean that their decisions will more than likely hurt you, me and everything living thing on the freaking plant.

[via Gizmodo]These Are the Routes for All US Military Nuclear Weapons Trucks

You are looking at the map of the routes followed by the nuclear trucks—plain-looking, high-tech trailers that travel America’s busiest highways carrying nuclear bombs, material for atomic weapons, radioactive metals and nuclear fuel for the US Navy.

Called Armored Tractors (ATs), these 18-wheelers are heavily shielded, continuously tracked, and loaded with security measures. Nothing differentiates them from other commercial trucks save for a few antennas and their special architecture. That and a “US GOVERNMENT” license plate. And the fact that they’re loaded with stuff capable of destroying a few cities, for course. [Read More]

Maybe not today, maybe? Not even tomorrow…

But nefarious folk DO exist & are likely to take advantage of such information.

Because sometimes, as much as some do NOT like to hear it?

There is such a thing as “too much” information.

Some things? I’m sorry, we (the general public) just do NOT need to know…

The information benefits NO one.

[via LiveScience] The results of two studies that created more transmissible forms of the H5N1 bird flu virus will be published in full — at some point, flu scientists and public health officials meeting today (Feb. 17) at the World Health Organization have agreed.

A moratorium on research on lab-created viruses and H5N1 transmission in mammals, as well as on the publication of the two studies, will continue, most likely lasting “a matter of months,” said Keiji Fukuda [resident idiot!], WHO assistant director-general for health security and the environment, in a news conference with reporters today at the conclusion of the two-day meeting.

The delay is needed to explain the importance of the research and address anxieties the research has raised, Fukuda said. The delay would also allow officials time to re-assess the biosafety and biosecurity conditions necessary for this kind of work. He pointed out, there was no hint of problems at the two facilities in question.

The group of 22 officials reached a “quite strong agreement that full disclosure of the information contained in these studies was really important from both the public health and scientific perspectives,” Fukuda said. [Read More]

Well…

With the exception of all those ‘Evil Geniuses’ out to do us harm. (see below)

southerners have a genius

Kickin’ in the sticks takes a psychological alchemy – One doesn’t become Southern. We’re born that way!

Growing up Southern is a privilege, really.  It’s more than where you’re born, it’s an idea and state of mind that seems imparted at birth.  It’s more than loving fried chicken, sweet tea, football, and country music.  it’s being hospitable, devoted to front porches, magnolias, moon pies and coca-cola… and each other.  We don’t become Southern – we’re born that way. ~Anonymous

 “All I can say is that there’s a sweetness here, a Southern sweetness, that makes sweet music. . . . If I had to tell somebody who had never been to the South, who had never heard of soul music, what it was, I’d just have to tell him that it’s music from the heart, from the pulse, from the innermost feeling. That’s my soul; that’s how I sing. And that’s the South.” ~Al Green
