Topic: OT: Slinky

I thought this was neat, just discovered it today. If you let a slinky move by gravity while the side of it contacts a mildly cushioned chair armrest (not allowing the top to move, such that the slinky acts like a spring stretched by gravity), the sound it makes as the different metal sections brush against the armrest is the movie spaceship laser firing noise.

I swear jimmy... you're a crackhead... how exactly did you come by finding this out? Maybe you have more time than any of us do... and i have lots of it big_smile

Did you know that if you take a radio, and put a metal file infront of it... and tape a wire to one end and tape that wire to a battery... and have another wire taped to it; when you run the wire along the file, it makes the radio staticy

I don't have a signature! *gasping mouth open.. eats a whole turkey*
mmm.. the essence of zur


Re: OT: Slinky

oh that used to happen when I was testing blown magnetrons with a megger(240-1000V tester). If it was shorten to earth, it use to fuzz the radio.

I keep my ideals, because in spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart.
