Go for a trebuchet, or a ball-coaster.
Wow, you toy around with K'nex sometimes, too? How do you like it?
I have very little, but we have a little at school for demonstrating simple mechanisms - levers and what-not. It's OK, but Lego is where my heart is.
LoL. School? How old are you? Yeah, when I was like 12, they had 'em at my school for demonstrating the simple machines: ramps, levers, etc.
I'm 41 - I'm the teacher...
Oh...I knew that.
Always remember, Kiteman...On the Internet, nobody knows you're a dog (pace caitlinsdad).
Woof?

Are they strong enough to build a chair out of?
If you layer it.
no sorry
I could make a chair from knex, and it could prolly hold my weight, I've never tried my idea, but I will soon.
you could use the k'nex as a fuel for a fire...that would be the best use of k'nex in my opinion
yeah, that'd be way more deadly then a little whimpy fake gun that shoots little rubber bands that you could shoot with just 2 hands
yay for toxic fumes! but seriously burning k'nex is more fun than building with it

if you made a knex gun or two you would know most dont shoot rubber bands and most are very powerfull
lmao "very powerful" that makes me laugh. if you can get a peice of k'nex to go 300 fps ill be amazed, till then, id rather soak em in gasoline

im sure that there are guns that go 300 fps

Proof?
HMm i guess i need proof too. Check out the Golfball Cannon by MrCrowley It shoots 400yrds which is about 1500ft
iKill (author)  blugyblug5 years ago
not distance speed... you said feet per second so it doesnt matter how far it goes, please tell me your dumb enough to think it has to do with distance it'll make my day
blugyblug iKill5 years ago
Usually, high speeds=lots of distance... I guess not always. But usually (Unless you are talking about shooting a towel =/
And when i said that the gun shoots 400yrds, I am prooving what i said that many air rifles shoot 1500ft.
I never said anything about airrifles shooting at 500ft/sec. I just said that when someone says "very powerful" I think of 500ft/sec and a max range of 1500ft
iKill (author)  blugyblug5 years ago
you have to also keep in mind the weight and and poor aerodynamics of a knex peice and you'll see why a knex gun cant reach the distance and speed of an air rifle
blugyblug iKill5 years ago
HMm i guess. Cant knex guns shoot other things than knex pieces?
Yeah, RB's, pencils, anything! Try it!
iKill (author)  blugyblug5 years ago
ya bits there more difficult
iKill (author)  iKill5 years ago
lol i hit submit before i was done, but like i was saying its more difficult to make a magazine, and a firing mech to fire bbs
your telling methat a knex gun can shoot as far as a paintball gun?
Yes.
blugyblug iKill5 years ago
Define "very powerful" The max a knex gun can shoot is about 100ft (30metres) When someone says very powerful i think about 500ft/sec and a range of about 1500ft. Many air rifles can shoot 1500ft (500metres)
Why do you hate it?
so true

When I throw a k'nex piece it usually goes pretty far. Just do that with your new tub of k'nex pieces.
