Step 1: Making and Using Hornets

Hornets are fun and simple school devises. Basically, you attach a folded up piece of paper or piece of metal to a rubber band, pull back, and aim at the back of someone's neck. It hurt like heck and are also good for firing long distances without inflicting as much pain. Here's what you need to make them:

Rubber bands
Index Cards
Paper Clips
<p>So cool</p>
Be careful, I've been shot in the lip with one of these, it hurts like ---. Never aim at the face, unless you need to, your victim doesn't deserve it.
<p>ive hit someone dead in the temple with these, i can assure you the lips are nothing (accidently hit the girl i like with them so id know from experience)</p>
&quot;BOOOM ! HEADSHOT&quot;
<p>My school banned these after some second grader got shot in the eye, but some kids still do wars with them when no one is looking. I have effectively stopped most of my friends from ever finding out how to make them, and therefore I get to sell the ones I make to them (hehe) I just bring like twenty of each type to school every day in my backpack and sell them for about 25 cents each. If you roll up a strip of aluminum foil with the paper it works WAY better </p>
<p>These are banned from my school if you're caught with one you'll get suspended for 3 days. </p>
Make them more powerful by adding one more fold. In My School We Recognise Rubber Bands As Guns.When We Start A War...Trust Me,You Guys Dont Wanna Be There.Once I Accidently Hit A Teacher With It Tho
dude at our school if u get caught making,or shooting these things or even having them on u u get suspended or sent to juvi cause last year some nug told on us when we shot him
Suspended for 3 days, from my experiences.
<p>so far at my school the teachers don't know. (And we plan to keep it that way.<br>)</p>
He's a snitch...
<p>i got hit bye my sisters. IT HURT SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. im glad they forgot about them.</p>
I stretch my index finger and thumb because it's more comfortable.
Nice job! I found out another way to make hornets myself, though: Cut a sliver of rubber band and use THAT as a hornet! It works. :D
If you ever get caught or blamed role the rubber band up and by your arm pit lol they wont ever find it
&nbsp;I can make these things whistle and shatter glass
I have an arsenal of these at school and at my house, ranging from thin, to metal, to foil, to thick, to even &quot;shatter hornets&quot;. The shatter hornets explode on impact, like a frag grenade.
i have learned that the smaller you make them the more they sting and hurt trust me
That has to do with aerodynamics and how much surface area your shot has.<br /> <br /> If it has a small surface area, it will travel faster thus creating more pain on impact, but if it has more surface area, it will travel slower and give blunt force on a lesser speed and smaller impact force.<br /> <br /> Also, a smaller surface area includes a smaller impact area where as a larger surface area gives more wide-spread pain and a larger impact area.<br />
Aerodynamics is only one part of it. I always had the feeling that the smaller the area of impact (on the wasp, hornet etc.) the more focused the force of it all is thus a sharp pain to whatever thing has an impact sensor on it, biological or otherwise... I'm not a physicist, so correct me if I'm wrong.
Actually, I'm not a physicist either.
Neither am I.
Just concentrating all of that potential energy onto that little point of impact, really. If it has a lower amount of potential energy and more kinetic energy, it will sting very hard, like a bullet. Higher potential energy and less kinetic energy is comparable to an artillery shell of sorts. It has wide-spread damage distributed to a larger point of impact. Then again, you would want a rubber band that gives it a lot of power, like a 7-inch rubber band when using larger ammo.
you don't know how to make the post-it ammo do you first you fold it in half with the sticky side and fold it the other way and fold it as small as you can eater way about 7 times. I know what i am doing i do it all day in school those leave welts.
I use them at school all day as well, I have an arsenal in my locker, my school bag, and my house. We used to have wars in school, and at the end of 7th grade...oh my god. We had over 50 kids shooting these in the cafeteria, classrooms, bathrooms, you name it! When making them in large quantities, I use sticky notes, index cards, etc. When making them in small quantities, I use thin poster board, taped together milk-carton strips, and tinfoil.
post-its are the best
Found out a good way to make them out of metal. Not to shoot at anything alive, really! Will post an I'ble on them soon. Sounds simple, but i tried making them a bit more unique.
dont be stupid. these things hurt. however, they are awesome!!!
Yall do not know how to make hornets. &gt;.&lt;&quot; You roll the paper and make it tight so it hurts more. and robertjames, its &quot;wrappers&quot; and &quot;hurts&quot; geeze people! my school banned em too.
if you use gum rapers it herts more
LoL my school banned them because so many people were shooting em
&quot;It hurt like heck.&quot;<br><br>Lol.
In my country, they're called V-darts. I have a friend who makes them so good they're like rocks when you try to sqeeze them together. we had to put it under my couch and sit on the couch just to make it bend into a V.
We would always have hornet fights on the bus and one day i accidentaly hit this girl in the eye with one. She had a whole lot of damage to her eye. She didn't go blind though. I'm just saying be very careful when playing with these.
i want to shoot this at my teacher
Post-its and is my specialty!
Ouch!<br />
I roll my hornets. I use a wide Post-it and then bend it over once lengthwise, and once the other way. Then I roll it up. It hurts not that much, but flies a good way.
hahaha. good times, these are illegal in my county now, we called them tweeters and we would shoot em at people. one day my friend decided to make "flaming" ones so he covered them in wax and let the wax dry, then he brought his lighter to school and he would melt them, shoot them, and they hurt. he shot one at a kid and it stuck to him and it burned his arm then the next day he shot one of the paperclip ones and it hit a kid in the eye. that kids mom sued the school and now they are illegal.
don't you mean "banned"?
were is your country?
you will blind someone with that i use sling shot rubber.
These things hurt like a B*tch, when I was in 7th grade I remember my friend used to make these with metal BBs in the tip. Needless to say, blood WAS shed :)
i do this all the time i shoot them into the celing all the time useing just paper clips the stay there forever.i shot one and my teacher when she bent down
dude, use two rubber bands, interlink them together. Then, get a strip of computer paper about 1.5in.x8 then tightly fold it up. then shoot someone, they hurt really bad.
I am the only guy in my school who hasn't been hit w/ a hornet yet
I shoot my friend mark in the chest and "BAM"! he crumpled up on the floor. also I USE TIN FOIL, WORKS LIKE A DREAM!
These are called "birdes" where I live.
