Welcome to Tinkertown: Population Poob

It's got gears and pullies up the wazoo!

It's got gears and pullies up the wazoo!

(as narrated by poober)

STOP! Collaborate and Listen.  Poob is back with a brand new edition.

What’s up, running crew?  It’s been a while but I’m back with a perspicacious invention (patent pending).  ROCKET CAR!  Mark 2.  Don’t ask about Mark 1.  It’s not really a rocket car, it’s a car that fires rockets.   Soviet rockets, to be specific.

And it’s got six wheels, which kind of makes it a tank, not even a car.  So scratch that.  It’s my new ICBM launcher.

The make-it-go lever was the easy part.  It’s the launch arm that gave me the most difficulty.  The counterweight has to be proportional to the Fibonacci Sequence.  When all else fails, glue a heavy iron weight to the back.

The troublesome counterweight and the rocket's fuel gauge.  Plus, wires.

So, the most enjoyable part was firing the rocket.  The second most enjoyable was building the rocket so everyone should go out and buy model rockets again; it’s a dying art.  If the youth of the nation can’t work with explosive devices, what a bleak future we have.  Tell all the parents to get out there and teach their children explosives.

I’m promoting rockets.  Rocket explosions.  I’m a rocket man.

[Poob continued his patriotic speech for many days without food or drink but luckily you don’t need to listen; you only need to watch this video:]
