Let me start off by saying that spud guns are illegal. They are illegal because they qualify as zip guns. Zip guns are any firearm that uses a combustion chamber to fire a homemade projectile. You are probably wondering how it exactly works well its really simple. The physics behind all this is the high-temp gases cause pressure within the combustion chamber. The forces are balanced across the chamber, where the sides are fixed (though may flex slightly). The forces are unbalance along the chamber because the spud can move. The spud and the gun gain equal amounts of momentum in opposite directions, but the greater mass of the gun means its velocity is lower. The acceleration of the spud effectively stops when it leaves the barrel, as the expanding gases are able to disperse sideways (Physics). Now how to make your own you ask? Well first get a bbq lighter, then some plastic water piping, but make sure its pressure rated! Then get some pvc cement glue and glue your pieces together. After that dries for twenty-four hours take it all and drill a hole to fit the spark plug from the lighter internals into the plastic combustion chamber. Once it’s all fitted together nicely get your hairspray or starting fluid and spray it into the back of the combustion chamber. Once you have completed that quickly tighten the end cap and give her a try. In conclusion you have learned what, how, and created your own spud gun. So please kids don’t shoot at anything you don’t intend to kill or harm. Works Cited "Physics Mini Potato Spud Gun Homework Help." Instructables - Make, How To, and DIY. Web. 02 June 2011. .

I went down stairs went to the cabinet and grabbed the tall Blues Racing glass and Filled my cup. I was so thirsty that I chugged the entire thing. I finished up and went back up stairs. Right as I get into my door I hear a loud crash that sounded like glass breaking and a quick pound. I leaned over to grab my pistol and headed down the steps to find out that it was only my dog. I put my pistol in my holster and turn around to head up stairs. Right then and there a zombie popped out in front of my face like what would happen in scary movie. I grabbed for my pistol but he already had me and was dragging me outside to his little feisty friends! I heard Charlie running down the stairs and I yelled for him to grab the shotgun. Charlie came at the zombie with the gun. He then took the butt of the gun and smacked the zombie over the head. I get up and we run to the cellar and get down in my safe room. The safe room consist of a piece of hydraulic lifted steel that when you press a button you can open it and go down a latter four hundred feet under ground. When you go down in the safe room you see right away that it is stocked full of canned food and weapons. When we got down those four hundred feet we just waited out for the zombies to go away. The zombies seemed like they would never go away for over Fifteen hours straight. It wasn’t until the third night that we heard something that sounded like a helicopter. We started our travel back up into civilization again and realized that the united state army finally did something right in helping the people. We talked to a few people and they said the wave of zombies followed a few groups so and are heading for southern California. Charlie and I went back into our would be rooms but the us army dropped an atomic bomb to try to kill the zombies and managed to not be there in time.

 Article posted January 14, 2011 at 07:00 PM GMT0 • comment (1) • Reads 254 When you see colors, you may automatically think of a way that you're feeling. It may be sadness or it may be love. Other colors may represent many different things. What do colors mean to you? For me black means anger, blue means sadness, yellow means happiness, and red means love. Black: Anger, because in the winter it is so dark and glumy and it makes me mad. Blue: Sadness, whenever someone cries I think of the color blue because their tears are blue. Yellow: Happiness, because yellow reminds me of the sun and how warm it is in the summer and it brings warmth to your heart. Red: Love, because most hearts are red so thats why red reminds me of love. Whenever you see colors in the field or in the sky you should think about how the colors make you feel. Instead of just seeing them, really, think them through. Article posted January 14, 2011 at 07:00 PM GMT0 • comment (1) • Reads 254
 Article posted January 3, 2011 at 06:14 PM GMT0 • comment (1) • Reads 136 I commented on three different peoples blogs for my English grade. My English grade is not that great but hopefully this commenting on this one person who in their blog talked about how, for their new year’s resolution they were talking about how they wanted t quit smoking. I commented on the blog and told him that he did the right thing and I hope that he does and will never start back up again. I really feel bad for him and it makes me sad when I see or hear of people dying from cancer from smoking tobacco. Every time I here of people smoking I think of my grandpa who passed away in April of 2010 from smoking his pipe way to much. Article posted January 3, 2011 at 06:14 PM GMT0 • comment (1) • Reads 136
