this is someting that actually hurts when you flick it at someone. its pretty much a bread clip that is flung off your finger and it flies.

(note, this is my first instructable)

Step 1: Breaking the bread clip

Picture of breaking the bread clip
there are two ways of doing this instrucable, they are basicly the same exept for break of the clip.

take the clip and hold it firmly on both of the sides with both of your hands and break the bread clip in half.
the other way is to just break one leaf of the clip of and in the end will look like 3/4 of a clip.

This is my favorite flicker shot of all-time:

Ralf Walter and I were coming out of a movie theater, when Pulp Fiction first came out. As we are about to get to the exit Ralf fires a shot at this guy, who is wearing glasses, that is about three feet ahead and to the right of us. It is hard to imagine where he hit him, but try to follow. The flicker hit the guy in the inside of his glasses, ricocheting into his eye, finally hitting the floor. He screams and grabs his eye, while his companions ask him what is wrong. While holding in our laughter, Ralf and I quickly got of the theater and ran to the alley behind the theater. We proceded to laugh our asses off; I can't remember laughing harder in my life. I think this is the greatest shot of all-time.

This is one of the greatest poems ever written:

Flickers (A Poem)
By Adam Hammelman

Flickers, orange things, plastic tabs,
Shooting them isn't bad,
I like to shoot them at people's heads,
They get pissed off and want me dead.
Look on the floor and you will find some,
Fire it and you will hear it hum.
All teachers hate them, they think they hurt,
They really don't if you get hit in the shirt.
When they fall they make a lovely sound,
I fire them by the pound.
When principals hear it they're on my sac,
So I fire a warning for them to step back.
I recycle them everywhere I go,
Because I got skills like a mo fo.

yea it sure does but if you dont have that many you can still just break them and half and you have 2... it should be eligal to have as many clips as that... burgler lol you should have a shooting contest? or just have a fight with some freids...?

you flick it... like flicking off a booger. I used to flick these all the time at school, we'd have wars with them. Granted this was about 20 years ago.

what do you mean by "thump" with your thumb you jsut hold your thumb there and try and pull your fingure away and then let it go away by the presure of your own thumb its kinda confusing.
