Ok, thank you for the link. I'm clearly busted though. Clumpy gun, yup! I've seen price check guns far more intimidating. I swear to Christ I could hold up a bank with one. GET THE FUCK ON THE GROUND OR I WILL PUT A LAZER IN YOUR ASS! Think about that the next time you are in Wal-Mart and that hefty gal who is dressed like she seriously isn't from the planet, comes trooping by you with one of those in hand. Or is it? Or is she? Fuck!
Here's my wild sci-fi fun gun to print out. Remember those plastic star trek guns they made back in the 70s? They shot disks that spun like fuck! You could seriously jack a bag of green army men up with one. My question is how fast can one make a disk spin with this new fangled particle acceleration tech?
I can see me at Wal-Mart, looking at that behemoth bitch in those purple heels that someone a fraction of her size should be in. You know, the one with the menacing price check gun. She in line in front of me, looking back at my cart full of saw blades, Duracell batteries, some damn laser I found in sporting goods, and a big can of coffee. She knows. I could feel a bead of sweat forming on my forehead to take a slalom course down my brow. If she made a move, I could take her. She knows that too.
She flashes me a smile. I'm terrified, it's not a she-alien, but a human female/Sasquatch/mutant who's taking a fancy to me. She does have an ample bosom. I come to my senses later sneaking away with my Wal-Mart bags from some part of town and my car is a subject I don't want to discuss.
I return home and my crew has been patiently waiting, smoking my fucking weed, and are eager to load up "the gun" with ammo, and we got Duracells for this, going balls out on this budget. Fuck them cheap batteries. Note: Make sure you work in a well ventilated area when cobbling PVC particle slider/spinner/accelerator barrels together, the glue will get you high as fuck, and in a way the math will always be more difficult way, not the weed way.
Why is this important? Because of that! That thing that landed in our community's back yard. Seriously, look at the size of it! It's fucking so obviously from space or worse, it's just laying there, resting, and I bet it gets up pissed, hungry, thirsty, and whatever ry that trips its trigger. If it's not friendly as a puppy and shits golden eggs, we just might discover the dire need to seriously fuck it up. Shooting saw blades like photon torpedoes at it sounds like a plan to me. If it bleeds, we can kill it. We can then cook it and eat it. That's what happens when you come to Earth and start shit. We fucking kill you, then we cook you, we are after all civilized, then we eat you.
OK, which way do these batteries go in again? Jesus, I haven't seen this many D-Cells since your mom's vibrator got flagged by the TSA at the airport last Thanksgiving.
I digress. 100 duck sized horses of course. And the question is: Why did they make that fucking gun so ugly? Don't they have a kinky cosplay girl friend who makes costumes who could touch it up so it doesn't look so blah. Blah, I will point my blah gun at you and blah you with its blah powers of blah! Give it to some kids with Sharpies, anything.
True story, was in an engineering class of sorts, doing Solid Works and the instructor printed out the train we all made. I was really surprised at the level of detail and how tight it went together. We are talking simple as shit train, something Santa's elves would fucking bust a nut laughing at. But it was cool how we could work it up in that, then just print it. It takes forever though. Nobody is going to print out a gun on demand to go down stairs and check what that scary noise was any time in the foreseeable future. I could be wrong.
In parting, I think steering these fellows away from printing guns to something more interesting. We need a print your own girl friend project. Print up the android frame under the latex or whatever kind of rubber skin. Animating it would be awesome, it could be a community project, like a wiki, the whole thing. You know all of those poor guys who buy body pillows with cartoon girls on them? They are the kind of sick desperate geeks that could pour that kind of dedication into bringing something like this to life. Damn it, lets write a Weird Science reboot if nothing else. Were you around when that came out? That gal was the acme of smoking hot back then if you were the target age of an alive audience. Now to waste time pondering who to cast that part these days. Sigh.
