How many pieces did u use to build it

Oompa-Loompa (author)2010-01-13

It holds four cans, and doesn't keep them refrigerated... practical if you drink a warm soda once a year.

IMHO of course.

DJ Radio (author)Oompa-Loompa2010-01-13

No knex soda machine can refrigerate soda.  Its impossible unless you used other materials.

Oompa-Loompa (author)DJ Radio2010-01-14

Exactly, use a real fridge... I'm sure you have one... Probably... Maybe...

DJ Radio (author)Oompa-Loompa2010-01-14

That's just like saying "use a real gun" or "use a real ipod dock" or "use a real ferris wheel" instead of the knex version.  Sure its better, but there's no real fun to it.  Half the fun in knex comes from making stuff and the other half is seeing it work great.

Oompa-Loompa (author)DJ Radio2010-01-14

Both better options than knex if you plan on having something do what it was meant to.  And there is plenty of fun in "real" things, if you've never been to a range, I'll tell you from experience: real guns are far more fun to shoot than knex guns.  Real ferris wheels are far more fun than micro-scale knex ones, and I'm sure ipod docks can be made out of better materials than knex.

If you are so adamant in your anti-knex sentiments, then I fail to understand what brought you to this page in the first place. Unless, of course, you simply enjoy mocking other people's hobbies and creations.

DJ Radio (author)Oompa-Loompa2010-01-15

I think half the fun in knexing is BUILDING it, which is something you can't do with real stuff, unless you homemake it, which would be very impractical with the examples listed above.  So I find it twice as fun as the real life equivalent.

Furloy (author)DJ Radio2010-08-02

amen. if i build a sweet huge knex gun off this site and i spend all morning making it an then id doesnt shoot to me its okay and i stil give a decent rating. i agree on the fect that a large part of the fun is building

quellek2 (author)DJ Radio2010-01-15

 Oompa-Loompa, i think he wins here.

anyways, building is incredibly fun. nothing is more satisfying than building something and then seeing it work correctly

knexfreak95 (author)quellek22010-01-15

 yup but it sucks when it doesn't work right

DJ Radio (author)knexfreak952010-01-16

You just learn what you did wrong and fix it.  That's what keeps it fun.  

Oompa-Loompa (author)quellek22010-01-15

"Because you can make knex guns and ferris wheels that work like the real thing, right?"

Oompa-Loompa (author)DJ Radio2010-01-15

Because you can make knex guns and ferris wheels that work like the real thing, right?

knexfreak95 (author)DJ Radio2010-01-13

Dear Captain Capslock,


              Sincerely, OL

knexfreak95 (author)Oompa-Loompa2010-01-13

 whats gratz????????????????????? and my keyboard is messing up

Oompa-Loompa (author)knexfreak952010-01-13
For everyone that asked, this is why I am inactive here.

I have a question...
Why did you feel the need to stretch the post with unnecessary question marks that make me question your intelligence?


1.the act of congratulating.
2.congratulations, an expression of joy in the success or good fortune of another.
knexfreak95 (author)Oompa-Loompa2010-01-13

 you a sad little boy aren't  you

i truly feel sorry for you

Oompa-Loompa (author)knexfreak952010-01-14

You're being a nuisance.  You done yet?

you asked what it meant (in a rather childish manner) and I responded, is that not what you wanted?

My apologies if you still have yet to comprehend.

quellek2 (author)Oompa-Loompa2010-01-15

 Oompa-Loompa, SHUT UP

Millawi Legend (author)quellek22010-03-20

Why dont you? You see, these are the sort of things that made him leave.

Oompa-Loompa (author)quellek22010-01-15


amtdude (author)Oompa-Loompa2010-01-15

why do you feel the need to be so precise with everything, and then leave intsructables cause everyone else isnt. its just stupid in my oppinion have some fun for gosh sakes!

Oompa-Loompa (author)amtdude2010-01-15

I can have more fun when I'm around people older than twelve years old.
