Friday fun: 'Zombieland' Trailer

For this weeks Friday fun I thought I would post the trailer for Zombieland featuring Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, Abigail Breslin, and Bill Murray. A nerd, a redneck, lots of zombies, and even more laughs. What else can I say except I love this movie

Friday fun: The Last Starfighter Theatrical Trailer

It's Summer movie time, and I thought you might enjoy this trailer from another one of my favorite 80's movies, "The Last Starfighter" featuring Lance Guest and Catherine Mary Stewart:

If you haven't seen this movie before, then check it out. It's a great flick!

Friday fun: MythBusters - Diet Coke & Mentos

Personally I think dropping a Mentos in to a bottle of Diet Coke is a waste, but then again I am a Diet Coke addict. If fizzing geysers are your thing then check out this clip from the MythBusters:

Friday fun: H.A.L.E. - High Altitude LEGO Extravaganza

Earlier this week I came across the site for the High Altitude LEGO Extravaganza or H.A.L.E., and was just blown away as to how these people took their LEGO NXTs to new heights:

Friday fun part deux: Fireball Shooter

OK, OK, I can take a hint! Apparently some of you think the previous "Compressed Air Rocket" project is a little too tame for the 4th of July. So for all you pyromaniacs out there here's another project from makemagazine that should make your Fourth:

Disclaimer: Be safe and smart, not reckless and stupid. Don't fire this thing at any person including yourself or any other animal. Nor do you want to point this thing in the direction of a fireworks stand, redneck with a shotgun, or a pile of black powder kegs stacked on top of a bunch of plutonium rods In short, use some common sense! (Hopefully that will keep everyone safe and any lawyers off my back)

Have a great & safe weekend ~ Jim

Since this weekend is the 4th of July I thought this "Compressed Air Rocket" project from makemagazine would make a nice Firday Fun post:

Here are links to pdfs for the article and the template for the rocket. If those links don't work then go here:
