How cool is that?

Har! That's kewl! I've got to let the hubby see this one!

"9) Please remember all supply parts are still usuable so the boss can't complain you are wasting office supplies."

Wasting time, though... Yeah.

Time is money!!!! Make sure you work on this cool project at home.

My only complaint is the saucer section clip. Where do you get those?

Steve Harkonnen said...

Well try THIS:

Make a rocket launcher!


paper matches
small piece of foil
paper clip
long pin or needle

Holding the pin to the match head, wrap a tiny piece of foil around the match head. Press firmly around the pin head.

Remove the pin. This acts as the exhaust nozzle.

Place the match on the paper clip at a 45 degree angle, match head on top.

Hold a lit match to the tinfoil-wrapped head of the match.

The match will ignite, and due to the law of where there is action there is an equal an opposite reaction, the match will actually shoot off of the paper clip launcher.

Woot! Let's launch the office supplies Enterprise off the rocket launcher! That would be way cool.

I don't know what's scarier - that I found this cool, or that I had all the necessary supplies within arms reach.

What's the number on the front? For some reason, NC-17 comes to mind, but I don't think that's right ;)

bw: I think one should revel in their geeknicity. There is nothing to fear ;-)

I'll tell you the Enterprise registry number... it's NCC-1701

...but please tell me where you get the clip that forms the saucer section. I want to make one of these & don't have a clue.
