All I did was ask what it does.

What is "not nice" about that?

Kiteman (author)2011-04-24

"Its not what you think it is..."

So, what is it, then?

knexman2001 (author)Kiteman2011-04-24

basically, its a joke

Kiteman (author)knexman20012011-04-25

Is it a version of The Useless Machine?

How about adding a video of it in action, because, if it's a joke, I can't see the punchline.

THEN BUILD IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No matter how many exclamation marks you add, I am not persuaded to copy your project - I can see neither practical use nor pointless humour.

Kiteman (author)knexman20012011-04-29

How what?

How will you persuade me? Post a video of it in action, or describe what it actually does.

knexman2001 (author)Kiteman2011-05-02

A PLATFORM POPS OFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOOK AT THE STEPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kiteman (author)knexman20012011-05-02

More shouting.

Not really up on the old persuasion skills, eh?

Sorry, but I don't see anything popping off anywhere.

knexman2001 (author)Kiteman2011-05-10

Read step 6 to see the use of it

Ok, there a glitch with this comment, it shows up that you have replied to me, and not to Kiteman :)

The pictures in step 1 are backwards.


Sorry, my bad. The pictures were in the intro, it is confusing though putting instructional pics in the intro.

I know Right!
