Step 6: Preparing The Launcher!!

Now take your right hand and make the funky shape shown in the image. The goal is to have the fleshy part below your thumb fit directly below your left thumb, making the most airtight cup with your hands as possibe. To test it's airtightness, blow into the hole. If it's really hard to blow into, you're probably doing just fine. If not, perfect your technique. (Yay I fixed the blackness!)
tell me if its kool or not
Certainly right up near the top as one of the worst instructables ever posted!
"HamO has not posted any instructables yet..." (Instructables dixit) Sure, it is easier to criticize. In other words, people that doesn't make anything are the one that more criticizes. Some comment?
So, what are you saying? "This is a good instructable" or "If someone has not posted an instructable, they can't recognize a bad one and comment on it? Which is it?
Ham0, critique is not about slamming someone. It is about suggesting things to make it better. If you don't like it, make a constructive suggestion. Otherwise, you're just stroking your own ego.
He's not saying it's amazing, but this actually has some use. Maybe you're not the intended audience. His other point is once you post some projects, you'll appreciate the comments and be reluctant to post negative comments because you'll know how bad it really feels.<br />
It seems my English is worse than me believe. This is a good instructable. It is easier to criticize than make one better.
I really do bot see you reasoning for flaming, HamO... I really doubt you even tried to do it.
try taking pictures next time. nice instructable though!
...wow thats not really that simple if you want a really cools and easy one see my chapstick®rocket..
put real photos in it to make it a better instructible. definatly a cool instructible
This is a great Instructable. The illustrations are a little crude, but I had no problem following the directions. The idea is clever and fun. It also requires a bit of trial and error to perfect the technique, which adds to the fun for me. Not only that, but I don't have to own a laser cutter to do it. If your standard for a good Instructable is excellent illustrations or complex wiring schematics, than I am afraid that most of the Instructables on this site fall way short. BTW, I am a professional product designer. I make a living out of visually communicating ideas and concepts.
I like it.. especially the family tradition part.. I would post how to make a paper rocket shoot from a restaturant straw but I expect it's already here somewhere o.O
Idon't likethe paintings
I know i uploaded all the steps and somehow it didn't put the last couple steps in! I am going to put them on as soon as possible.
why is this one of the worst instructables ham0? ....it's very informative as far as the steps go...and you can't deny that the drawings are great (especially for paint)...there's nothing confusing...sure it's just shooting some tinfoil out of your hands...but so what my only beef is that you forgot a step or two...loading and launching the rocket (i'm pretty sure i can figure that out...but...it's not a finished instructable untill it's got a last step right?)
