You will need:
1 bic mechanical pencil
1 bic click pen
1 bic cap pen
2 any-brand cap pens
1 click pen with a top you can unscrew
1 pocket knife with metal file, pliers, and knife
10 toothpicks

And most importantly, an Altoids Tin!

Step 2: Pen Blow Dart Gun

Unscrew the top of the screw pen. Set aside. Throw out the rest of it. Take one of the any brand pens and uncap it. Take out ink. Save the ink. Remove bottom part. Save for a different step. Cut the barrel of the pen so it fits inside the Altoids tin. Throw out the longer end. Connect the first piece to the of the unscrew-able pen to the cut piece of pen. Cut off the metal part of the ink. Rinse ink. Put ink in the new pen blow gun. Blow. It will launch about 5-10 ft.

Step 3: RPG Bic Pen

Rocket Propelled Grenade. Disassemble click pen. Remove spring. Cut ink to fit Altoids tin. Cut tip of pen off. Crucial: Do not cut off bumpy part of ink! Assemble pen like picture 3. Insert ink. Put bumpy part at bottom to explode. Put bumpy part at to have a one piece missile. Click pen to fire. 

Step 4: Bic Lightsaber Pen

emercado (author)2011-04-06

i improved this, its still rpg style but with 1 spring with a range of 2 meteres but when i get 2 springs it will be twice as powerful

emercado (author)2011-04-06

i dont get how this works. whats the range and how damaging?

emercado (author)2011-04-06

Ok, if you want to annoy someone, get a pen ink and cut it in half so you have a tube about 3cm long filled with ink. with this just stuff it in someone's pencil case and wait. after 5min, the ink gets runny and "inks" everything in the pencil case. i call it the Time Bomb

cookie38 (author)2011-03-14

u might need to tape the white part to the tub e- mine fell apart epic:)

killer (author)2011-03-14

perfect for attacking people in the office when you are bored or being annoyed by your little sister and possibly your girl friend nagging all the time about you keeping secrets from them and mainly your parents
