This Cow Means BUSINESS . . .




About: AKA Roborovski, and Cowscankill for several years. I'm a mechanical engineering undergrad.

When you light his tail, he will hate you. In turn, he will throw up his lunch:gunpowder

Step 1: Materials

business card(2in x 31/2in)
marker or pen

bottle rocket...brake off the stick and peel off the paper

Step 2: Chart It Out

pic 1:mark 3/4 in from each side
2:draw lines, mark every inch. last collum is smaller
3:draw lines
4:mark 3/16 in like step one on collum 1 and 3
5:draw lines

Step 3: Cut Some Stuff

pic 1:cut as shown
2:cut 1/3 of the sides
3:fold the 2 newly cut edges in. tape together.
4:get the front and curl it.
5:tape it down
6:curl other side over and tape.

Step 4: Adjustments

pic 1:bend pieces as shown
2:cut 1/3 off the each horn
3:bend the neck. Look in pic 5 for how much to bend
4:stick the rocket up its butt
5:slide the edge of the rocket just passed the chin

Step 5: Down to the Details

Draw a nose and eyes on its head. color little hooves. Also draw nice body sploches. Install the rocket again and throw up on people. (don't!)
Make sure rockets are legal in your country. Most cows only last a couple of shots. If you can, post a picture of it before and after you use it!(if you can)

    Great 'ible'! I have like a million bottle rockets left over from the fourth. I'm going to try this. tip: Maybe next time you take pictures you could use a camera stand? I also have trouble holding a camera still in close ups.=)

    In Chinatown you can buy these cool little paper popper balls. I'm not sure what they're filled with, but they're pretty loud when thrown.

    it isnt gunpowder. its treated gravel. it is regular grave soaked in silver fulminate.NOT fulminating silver, or is unstable stuff, why do you think they are packed in a bunch of sawdust? my friend squeezed one a bit too hard and it popped in his fingers. ADVICE: I wouldnt go opening thousands of these up if i were you. a guy that was making some of this got a drop of sweat in it and it had a reaction and a bunch of gas came off of it and burned out his eyes.

    o ya, u mean like poppers and they light up if thrown after dark? I hav lots of those things, but they dont work if u lite them on fire, only if u throw it. I used a trebuche thing and it works to throw them for me ;)

    I think so. I don't know if they light up in the dark, but they pop. Fun stuff :)

    They don't have very big fireworks in china... i went there and they all are pretty small. go to Krazy Kaplan's. they have big fireworks
