Bottle Gun

use this on ur friends to scare them, they will back away and cover their face once they see it pointing at them. its a lame instrutable (1 pic, pretty obvious how to do) but hey, it might help some people (sorry for only 1 pic...didnt feel like taking pictures of a bottle =)

Step 1: Get Bottle

just find any bottle. some bottles will work, and some wont. it should be about a 17 fl. oz. bottle. (bottle of water etc.)

Step 2: Loosen & Tighten

first take the cap off and let out a tiny bit of air, then put the cap back on just far enought so that its right on the edge of letting air out, and not letting air out. (basically tighten the cap just far enough so that it doesnt leak air.)

Step 3: Twist

twist the bottle so that lots of pressure builds up. twist as far as possible and hold there.

Step 4: Open Cap / Finish!

now while holding it twisted, point it at sombody and loosen the cap very quickly. the cap will pop off and hit them. woo! yes i know this is a pretty lame instructable but whatever. (you can also do the same thing but tighten the cap a little more, and jump on it.)

    Its a bad idea to post something even if YOU think its lame, let alone the peanut gallery, who agrees with the decree of lameness.

    OR!!! you can simply get a bottle, fill it with water, then with one foot step on it(build up heaps of prusssure)works better if ur heavy, think bout it. Then you place your other foot on the lid and push down a lil 4 grip then pull your foot so it starts twisting open. What happens is the water pushes it into a spinning momentum that propells it forwards (like a bullet) this works just the same with air, wen i was in primary school i nearly hit a teacher with one of these

    pretty old trick, been doing this since 01' at least. Once someone I knew shot the bottle cap point blank at this guys head and made him bleed. The condensation at comes out is pretty kewl.

    so this instructable is for people like YOU who DONT know how to do this. some members here, to me, seem to think that every instructable has to be new to them (im talking to YOU legendaryfrog and you Edge). Have a cookie, cry_wolf

    well according to the people who rated my instructable (pretty much the same as your but made earlier), mine and yours "suck". but i like the effort. great minds think alike. In my opinion, B for the both of us.

    if great minds thought alike then there would never be any good ideas. :P j/k
