I think the relevant feature is the caffeine.
Flavor is secondary. ;)

Just think of all those coffee drinkers- could anything taste worse?

Find an addict and nick their cans. ;) There's probably some place that runs through them and would be happy for recycling help.

Hmm... someone needs to post an instructable on how to remove the cough syrup from red bull.

I guess you could separate the caffeine and the quote-flavoring-unquote by crystallization, but perhaps there's something easier to get rid of the vile taste?

The dragon's awesome! Gorillaz and Jessy, drop your current robot projects and collab on this! (maybe?)

We should totally swamp them with entries. I'll practice a bit with random cans to get technique, then maybe give it a shot. Want to join the fun?

I totally would! But I've gotta focus on Proj. X and Science Olympiads (we made states!) I'll see if I have time for it though, and I'll let my aunt know about it - she is a professional sculptor, after all...

Heh. We've got a secret project too, but it will actually be up this week.
Zach was in on it, but seems to be keeping mum. ;)

Yes, Zach told me that you were doing something, but he wouldn't tell me what...

I'm aching to know!

Ah well i love secret projects, they're great fun, I actually have way too many big secret projects in the pipeline... Need to get some finished and stop tinker with others to free some time up.

Sigh... I try to work on it when I can, but it's pretty large... I'm hoping to get it out before the end of march.... but if my teachers keep on piling work up on me like they have been, it might be out a bit later. I need to get Jason to work on it too, but then I have to e-mail all the pictures to him. Anyway, I'll try and get it out asap, end of march the latest.

Cool, I do know the pain, le beast is weighing in at min 15' by 6' by 16' and it'lll probably be at least 300lbs but I will continue. that's one blessing about getting kicked out of school, I get plenty of time (then decided to work alot)

Here's the list:

Drinking on a school trip
smoking in school
not handing in homework
disrespect to teachers
being in at about 11o' clock looking shabby and unshaven every day
Being a bad influence
Skipping school
'taking advantage of my situation'(someone will die over that I'll make sure)

It sounds really bad when you say it like that...

O.O I made a crappy biplane out of soda cans. It's fallen apart and thrown away by now.

nice though those sculptures are, the edges are probably razor sharp.
