Look....
If you had
One shot
to sit on your lazy butt
and blast all the TV's you ever wanted
until your brain turned to mush
Would you go for it... or just let it slip?

YO! Apple Quicktime Thompson Movie (4MEG)

Great video! laugh.gif

I like the last shot; you must have hit a transformer or something else real solid in the TV to make it "pop" like it did.

TV's, pumpkins- what next? Evil toasters maybe? ohmy.gif What about that D@$M computer that wouldn't work right?!? mad.gif

Full auto 45,

I hope you get the computer fixed. If not, hit it with an L (or C) drum. That will show that D@#M computer the definition of "fragmented hard drive!" laugh.gif

Nick,

What about that D@#M clock radio that has made me late for work 3 times in the last week because the F$@%ING alarm did not go off?

Are videos of "hot lead snooze button" allowed?

Chris, Quick question.

Whats with the actuator floating on your gun? Mind you I no clue what causes it, (could be the video or Quicktime) but it looks like its not running along with each shot.

Any ideas what is causing it.

Nice Video! Got any spare TVs?

Jr

PS is this going to start a video war? (oh please let it!)

John:

I cannot offer a technical answer to the "floating actuator", but here is my theory: it has to do with the synchronization of the rate of fire of the Thompson and the frames per second the camera uses to capture the image. They are out of sync, so it appears to float. Same as looking at a helicopter plade or plane prop, and it appears to be going very slowly. 'Swhat I think.

Chris, the last part of the video the T.V. explodes like it was hit by a shotgun why was that? by the way, the sniffle near the end of the video gave away your impending cold!

Nope, no shotgun. Don't like them. Nasty, uncivilized weapon. I know, it's odd, the exploding TV. You can see how its "guts" were blown out in front and behind. It's almost as if it had some sort of improvised explosive device inside... Weird.
