Oh, and I didn't criticize you for making a statement, I criticized you for being stupid
Heywasup EPL6 years ago
please explain to me how i was being stupid!!!
EPL Heywasup6 years ago
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.

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

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:)

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)  Neodudeman8 years ago
lol. Yeah, those ROMPs are preeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeetty annoying!
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.
