Introduction: Powered Chair Ride

Picture of Powered Chair Ride

well I looked at a list of "burning ?s" and thought this would be cool to try. the things needed are:
an office chair with wheels
fire extinguisher
a big room or flat hallway
and if your smart a helmet

Step 1: What to Do

Picture of What to Do

I seen this done on an episode of "Malcolm In The Middle" entitled "Rollerskates" its the 13th episode in season 1 (if you find a video of this please post url of episode) but what you do is set the wheel chair or office chair in the large room or hall way. the chair has to be pointing backwards from the direction you want to go.

Step 2: The "rocket Fuel"

now put on your helmet on and put the fire extinguisher in between your leg be careful not to freeze "the jewels" make sure your path way is clear pull the pin and squeeze the trigger on the extinguisher and prepared for a ride!! for a more visual explanation check these youtube videos

lol i have to try this....a better idea would be to mount 2 extinguishers on the sides of the chair in a way that you can grip the triggers then mount the nozzles on either side of the back of the chair so that u can face the direction your going and steer by holding 1 trigger down and not the other

another option which is permanent would be a steel rope continuosly towing the chair or group of chairs
