If You Build One Thing This Week, Make It a Shoulder-Launched Dry Ice Cannon

Yeah, you can ogle a vortex cannon on the screen, or you can gather up $200 in supplies and make your own shoulder-fired, dry-ice-launching BFG. That's short for Big Fucking Gun.


A bit of dry ice, water, a PET bottle, and a lot of balls to actually try this out are the main ingredients for this cannon which can supposedly shoot a rubber chicken as far as 80 meters (that's roughly 250 feet). All I'm seeing in the video though are soup cans and an odd guy named Benny, so your millage may vary.
