Darwin Proof Homemade Black Powder Bazooka

These guys:

Holy… whenever I see stupid stuff like this I always count the number of people, then I think to myself “So there were X many people that were present, who thought this was a good idea… wow!” *smh*

You woudln’t catch me holding a pipe / black powder combo anywhere near my body. He’s just incredibly lucky that pipe was smooth, otherwise it would have TORE UP HIS WHOLE EVERYTHING. Mission accomplished that the target got annihilated though I suppose haha.


NOTE: Comments work again, so go nuts.

Physics always wins unless you’re an alien, anime protagonist, or a god.

How does crossing the border make you immune to physics?

It’s so dangerous that they have to wear protective masks.

As soon as I saw the screen capture I thought… “a Bazooka is a simple recoiless rifle… this is a pipe cannon… what, did thee idiots miss a couple classes in chemistry or basic physics classes back in High School?” Boy is LUCKY to have hair and no 2nd or 3rd degree burns on the side and back of his head (to state the obvious), only wish they had parked their $40K pickup behind them!

you mean there is a reason a bazooka has an opening at the back, too?
huh, whoda thunk it

Newton laws. Break them at your own risk.

I like Darwin’s ‘survival of the fittest’ law…the idiots will kill them selves off, thus survival of the fittest!!

Good point.

Really silly, I mean, they thought holding it like a bazooka was somewhat important, but botched the design. It’s like if child were to sit in a box, put their hands up as if holding a steering wheel, and make engine noises and expect it to move around like a car. But sad in this case since they’re adults, were using hazardous stuff, and apparently really expected it to work.

Royal Nonesuch these guys are not. They also must not have noticed the whole handle aspect of bazookas/RPGs… *sigh*

I wonder when the BATFE will knock on his door with the whambulance?

Build one of these in my early teen in 1980s. Totally different design though and much safer. Basically a model rocket in a tube with electronic trigger. No warhead though, even though we designed one. I valued my life to much.

Oh come on! How stupid are these people?
I figured the reason why cannons were so heavy when I was like 7!
How dumb are these people that they can’t figure out recoil when they’re adults.

You’d think they would have tested it in ANY way other than next to his face, first.
