    it worked the first time

    I don't get it =(

    Check out this instructable. Makes WAY more sense. No offense...

    Ya, but that one still barely makes sense

    i made this years and years and years ago like in the elementary school, i thought everyone else knew how to do it so i kept it to myself and did it once in a while

    I dont get how to launch it :S

    you're supposed to stand it on one side and let it fall but not on the side where they meet

    I was really hoping for something with magnets, this was dissapointing
