myth or bust

if a person pulls one grey hair? does two or more grow back in its place

do you remember on harry potter how he bent the gun and it still fired will you please test this your facebook friend cole

Do you mean the muzzle of the gun was bent and the bullet left the gun?

That couldn't have happened if the angle of the bend was too sharp. The gun would have fired, but the bullet would have stayed in the gun.

In cowboy films ricocheting bullets always make that cool petowowzzz sound, question is how do you spell that.?

oh and do bullet make that sound?

* I'm not sure how to spell that sound. try a spellchecker.

* I've heard a similar sound when ricocheting wooden beads launched from a slingshot. I figure that the projectile tumbles at high speed after glancing off somethin like concrete.

* Another weird sound is that made by bowling balls when launched through the air. The holes whistle, and as the ball turns, the sound warbles. At one point in the history of the Denver Mad Scientist's Club, we were determining the range of our air cannon. So we stood downrange with GPS in order to mark the point at which the ball landed. You could hear and see the ball in the air a long way off, so setpping out of the way wouldn't be too hard. We got about 3000 feet, or 1/2 mile.

firing bowling balls 1/2 a mile! remind me not to park at the back of the bowling ally . it really is a mad scientist club LOL

This video on youtube has been around for a while, its a wind powered car. It does my head in, it shouldnt work, but there it goes tearing across the desert upwind.

Its kind of like the "blow your own sail" myth

Couldn't the propeller be turning a drive shaft which, in turn, turns the wheels? It would work with the wind blowing in both directions but would also have its "strong" side. Just a thought.

I dont doubt that it moves, just how does it go faster than wind speed?

I know I'm late to this, but it doesn't go faster than the wind - when the wind is behind it, it crawls along. I think it may be moving purely because the wind is pushing the sails, not turning them.

As soon as it is heading into the wind, the sails are being turned the right way for driving the wheels, so the vehicle picks up speed (although the featureless terrain makes it very hard to tell exactly how much speed).
