This is a very simple instructable that is relatively fun, but the only reason I'm even bothering to post this is because so many people ask me how I do it. Alright, let's get started.

Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Get a Gatorade Cap

Yeah, just get a gatorade cap.

Step 2: Now Hold It Like This

Yeah, hold it like this.

Step 3: Aim It, Then Flick It.

Yeah, just aim it, then use your middle finger to flick it as hard as you can, while thrusting your arm forward.

I told you this was a simple instructable... I don't know why so many people ask me how to do this.

Try doing this at school, and have it land in the trash can, or see who's goes the furthest, or hit that poster with Einstien on it. Or maybe the teacher.

After a while of doing this, your middle finger may hurt.

    any way to improve the caps (like adding dents for a golf-ball like effect) or something like that to make it go farther?

    Anorher cool thing is going around corners by flicking with a slant and up wards when it comes down it starts to tilt straight and gains momentum to keep flying

    Nice Instructable, I do this all the time in school! One quick suggestion, I believe the drink is called "Gatorade", not "Gatoraid"

    I don't care if it's poor. Like I said, a lot of people ask me how to do this, and rather than explaining it to them, I'll just say "go find it on instructables." Oh well, my other instructable is pretty cool.

    Some jerks at school take the little "ratchet" collar that the cap is orginaly connected to before you open the drink, flip them inside out, and stick them on the cap. Because of the spikes on the collar, when they swipe you with them, it leaves you with a good little scratch! Ouch! :(
