But he got a new skylight cheap!
This guy came within an inch of winning a Darwin Award...
Some what along a similar line, years ago I was working part time at Home Depot, partly due to boredom.
Some older guy, late 60's early 70's comes in with a Paslode nail gun. If you don't know, they use a battery and fuel cell to drive nails. He said it wasn't working, and he points the gun at my face and goes to pull the trigger on it. I knocked it away from my face, and told him not point that at me. Fucker points it at my face again, saying it's not a big deal since it doesn't work. That time I swung on him and knocked him on his ass.
The asshole then starts bitching that I assaulted him. One of the managers saw what happened, and defended what I did. The guy wanted the police called and wouldn't leave until they arrived. The police arrived, the loss prevention guy played the video back for them. He was charged with assault with a firearm. State law, the way it's written classified the mail gun as a fire arm. Police took the nail gun as evidence. None of the management blamed me and nothing happened to me because of it. The guy's eye was pretty swollen shut by the time he was hauled off
dumbest motherfucker on the planet bar none.
damn good law! Nail guns are indeed deadly. A guy I knew in Arizona killed a skunk trapped in his garage with a nail gun.
The dumbass was trying to say that it wouldn't fire since it wasn't working. And he refused to believe what he did was incredibly stupid.
Yeah, but did it work?
No idea, never checked it.
That it....stupidity of epic proportions.
Morbid curiosity would have forced me to.
When reffing paintball you sometimes have to clean out the paint from the barrel of the gun because of breaks. You do this by pushing a cleaning rod down the barrel from the front. When the players start to realize what you are doing they try to make it convenient for you to clean their barrels in a firefight by pointing the gun at you. This is an example of not being helpful.
After he got hauled off, I wanted, but the nailgun was already taken as evidence or whatever.
And another one.
I have a theory - maybe the multitasking demands of filming and operating their weapons confuses these idiots and that's how they end up with accidental discharges.
Perhaps we should ban cameras?
we did that in Epstein's cell about a week ago - it created more problems than it solved.
And this is sort of related.
AWESOME! That's the kind of thing they need on America's Got Talent! I would "golden buzzer" this act in a New York minute!
It would not be impossible to do that without harm. First you take the liquid out of the can and seal the can up again. You would probably want to pressurize the can also to prevent it from losing it's shape. The second thing you do is regulate the gun velocity. At that short of a distance you would not be able to eyeball the difference between a fast projectile and one that was traveling about the speed of a baseball pitch. You also would not notice the fast drop in speed from an empty can due to wind friction.
Given the can makes a good seal and the device probably has a regulated expansion chamber and you would not be loading liquid into the valve because that CO2 tank is probably an evap tank the gun would have a reliable velocity you could control beforehand. The guy handling the gun never lets the top of the tank go level or below the bottom of the tank for the few seconds before the gun fires. That tells me he knows how to handle the gun so that it does not accidentlayy load liquid into the chanber increasing the gun velocity. It is an old paintball trick which you could do with tippmanns and other guns that could handle liquid CO2 without blowing the valve. If you ran them evap and tipped the tank down and fired a few shots until you saw the gun blow frozen CO2 out you could raise the velocity massively to cause pain to other players.
Then you would just have to have the guy react to the shot. But with an empty can cruising at even 100 fps you are going to get a bruise, and maybe a blood welt at that distance. You might even be able to do it with an actual full can of soda if you kept the velocity low enough and the guy knew what he was doing. I would be worried about busting the internal organs, but the guy was a big fellah and energy would disperse through the fat.
Pneumatic projectile devices are fun to play with. I do believe that is a CO2 powered t-shirt launcher. I know people who do potato guns with both explosive gas and air pressure. By explosive gas I mean something like a chamber where hairspray or ether is sprayed into and it has an electronic spark that lights the fuel. Pneumatic systems would involve HPA like scuba tanks or liquid CO2 tanks where the valve expands the liquid into gas form or takes the expanded gas at the top of the tank and launches the projectile.
It is actually quite fun to see how far you can launch things, and how accurate you can be. It is basically what a paintball gun is, and there are tons of ways to tweak velocity and projectile stability. If you are playing with the valves and experimenting with different projectiles you want to wear some protective equipment and be safe. You are not even supposed to play with HPA unless you are certified as that can reach pressures around 4000-6000 Psi. When equipment fails at those pressures you are talking about shrapnel that can kill and will cause injury. That is way about your natural gas or pressurized power washing systems which are normally around 400 psi.
Liquid CO2 systems won't light on fire, but when vented quickly will freeze and burn skin almost immediately. They will also propel the device from the breach like a balloon, only the baloon is often aluminum or carbon fiber and thick.
I used to make devices like this for paintball back in the day. most fields ban mass paintball launchers like that, or regulate their use, because they are more dangerous at close range due to the increase in mass of the projectile or projectiles, and the potential to cause damage. I have seen mass paintball launchers dent road signs at close distances.
You do learn a lot about the state change of substances and physics if you get deep into the technology of pneumatics and HP systems. But I just happened to be in an industry where this is a major part of the game. It becomes extremely interesting over all. Yes, there were some people who were doing dumb things in regards to macho endurance, or self testing inventions.
It can cause a bad rash. CO2 in this criminal intent episode.
That is technically not a rash. That is a cold burn from something so cold it damages your cells. Some might call it a chemical burn, but I think the endothermic change from liquid or solid to gas is not a chemical change, but rather physical reaction being the CO2 itself down not change chemical form.
Thank god I never had a camera running when I did stupid things.

"I would be worried about busting the internal organs, but the guy was a big fellah and energy would disperse through the fat." - Tererun
sort of like this famous film. You can definitely see that energy dispersing in this portly fellow - plus he's "rolling with the punch" of that cannonball too. But wow, if that guy accidentally turned a little to his left and dropped his body a bit he would take it in the liver.....
I cannot get an accurate percetion of speed with that shot. It could have been traveling really slow.
no kidding! I feel sorry for young people today.
well the film is in very slow motion obviously. So if that cannon ball was moving many times faster than shown....factoring in it's still a cannonball...I wouldn't try that at home!
I am pretty sure with the way people are killing themselves for youtube we will eventually see more footage of these things. Maybe it will be the next big internet culling of the herd challenge?
