It's spelt 'dumbass' and 'cap'. There is a spellcheck feature so you don't make mistakes like that. While we're on the subject of mistakes you've been flagged.

EPL (author)2009-04-12

this is a good idea but there is no need for an insructable. i think almost every living person knows how to do this

Heywasup (author)EPL2009-07-10

oh hi u might not remember me but u were the one who critcized me for making a statement... just because ur a jerk with nothing better to do than criticize kids doesnt mean u can go around offending others.

1000% (author)Heywasup2011-07-13

But. That doesn't mean you should be a jerk either

EPL (author)Heywasup2009-07-11

actually i am a kid too

sharlston (author)EPL2009-08-06

i know you your the kid down the street with mental dissabiltys

Capt. Kidd (author)sharlston2010-12-07

"dissabilitys" is spelled disabilities. Just for the record.

EPL (author)Heywasup2009-07-11

Oh, and I didn't criticize you for making a statement, I criticized you for being stupid

Heywasup (author)EPL2009-07-16

please explain to me how i was being stupid!!!

EPL (author)Heywasup2009-07-19

Because you're just putting out there that you're under the age limit and it was for no reason. You said after a sentence "BTW IM 11"! Please explain how that wasn't stupid.

Marsanni (author)EPL2010-05-23

I bet you could find children in iscolated tribes in the middle of the pacific doing this.

Jamez Britton (author)2011-05-24

I've been trying to make a full pen-gun but this is WAY simpler. Thanks!

Samek_1 (author)2010-11-07

Me too exept she is 2 years older than me lol

chaderoo2 (author)2009-07-27

It also works better with pinkty and thumb.

chaderoo2 (author)2009-07-27

It is even better with just cap.

McGyver2 (author)2008-10-13

I do this stuff all the time during class and never get in trouble and all this stuff or most of it at least i have fully memorized i have even hit my teacher a few times and my friends ask me how i make this stuff and i refuse to show them.(Best to let them figure it out them selves:)

ogatron (author)2008-09-08

you should put a push pin on the end of it :P

n8man (author)2008-06-01

I once did that with a different pen and its cap shattered when it hit the table.

paper warrior (author)2006-09-21

Bad Donut (author)Sidney Floyd2006-09-18

Ohhhhhh Chaos as in screwin with people. I thought this was another Random Oscillating Magnetic Pendulum lol. This is still neat though

Bad Donut (author)Neodudeman2006-09-18

lol. Yeah, those ROMPs are preeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeetty annoying!

FrenchCrawler (author)Bad Donut2006-09-20

At least the ROMP instructables had some complex details laid out in easy steps for people to follow. And how are they annoying? There were only three of them. I did a full sized instructable. Then after a conversation, I made a portable one (which looks pretty sweet, if I do say so myself) and Stormed posted another one in his own design. Compare them, if you will, and you'll see that the designs are totally different.

mikesty (author)2006-09-17

Your hands look teeny.

Bad Donut (author)mikesty2006-09-18

Thats because my digital camera is crappy and takes about 1.5 seconds to take the picture. Because no one was around to take a picture, i had to press the button, step about 5 feet from the camera because otherwise it would be out of focus, and pose. All in 1.5 seconds.

Crash2108 (author)2006-09-17

Teeny as in small or teeny as in teenager? I say they almost look female.
