The Jamalam (author)j-chode!2008-08-16

in fact we do!

I concur. I, Like you 'The Jamalam', am also from the wonderful little Kingdom that is known around the world as, 'Uninted'

I concur as well, and may I suggest a small "w00t" is necessary for celebration in this case, good sir?

j-chode! (author)The Jamalam2008-08-16

That's why I said we do. Because we rock!

Soopah Steve (author)The Jamalam2008-08-14

Soopah Steve (author)j-chode!2008-08-15

Lol. (\_/) (-.-) (" ") Help him take over the world by copying and pasting him into every instructable you see! GO BUNNIES AND THE CREATOR OF THIS, THE JAMALAM! CHUCK NORIS FTW!~

j-chode! (author)Soopah Steve2008-08-15

Chuck Norris is legendary. We must worship him.

The Jamalam (author)j-chode!2009-06-09

Yeah, he killed 2 stones with one bird! He also went to Burger king, asked for a mig mac and got one! When he does pushups, he isnt pushing himself up, he's pushing the Earth down. He's counted to infinity twice!

when chuck norris falls in a puddle he doesnt get wet, the water gets chuck norrised ☺

But chuck norris wouldn't fall in a puddle. Just commands the water to come to him.

fine then....roundhouse kick.....bucket of.......peanuthead

Soopah Steve (author)2008-08-18

Hold on, has anyone actually BUILT the gun yet???

mrbox (author)Soopah Steve2008-08-26

I built it it was okay the only thing i would fix is the structure being bent upward that kinda ruins your aim...

Soopah Steve (author)mrbox2008-08-27

xD i mightve missed a few connection points its not supposed to bend up

Soopah Steve (author)2008-08-21
