Joby-1-knoby (author)J@50n2009-11-03

to me everything dangerous is cool, and if something is interisting but not dangerous, it can be cool 2.

An Villain (author)J@50n2009-08-25

no, only safe things are safe, dangerous things, are cool.

J@50n (author)An Villain2009-08-18

Joby-1-knoby (author)An Villain2009-10-31

um, how did u hit your eye? did centrifigal (bad spelling sorry) have somthing to do with it? how does it work like a boomerang?

An Villain (author)Joby-1-knoby2009-10-31

i already explained the boomerang function, the sling-launcher just snapped off a piece and it hit my eye.

Joby-1-knoby (author)An Villain2009-11-03

rocksalt2342 (author)2010-04-15

It flew back at me, OUCH!

Joby-1-knoby (author)nmbalazs1232009-10-30

it flew like a boomerang?!?
How does that work?

An Villain (author)Joby-1-knoby2009-10-31

it just does, i have had numerous squares of cardboard, metal, and paper fly back at me, it just happens. it works best with medium weight things such as cardboard or this thing.

Joby-1-knoby (author)An Villain2009-11-03

Paper does too i made a really sharp paper shruiken and it flew really well.
i threw it and it came back to me...
my finger hurt 4 days!
no joke!!!

An Villain (author)Joby-1-knoby2009-11-04

that happened to me too.

J@50n (author)nmbalazs1232009-09-30

Landon Sullivan (author)2009-06-19

Kryptonite (author)Joby-1-knoby2009-10-31

He he, not quite but near to. I put a really sharp point on it and dropped it on my foot; and I didn't have shoes.

I'm going to make one out of 3 mm metal, but because of my certain design I would like to have a drill press, which I don't have.

Joby-1-knoby (author)Kryptonite2009-10-31

ouch the same!

mangomango (author)2009-09-03
