Spud Gun OoohHah!

 Every boys dream.
To build a Potato Gun.
All you need is PVC, glue, a striker, cheap hair spray and of course
a potatoe.
I had no idea this thing could be so cool!
The boys built it as a projectile project for Scouts.  Our fingers were really cold trying to twist the striker at a speed that would ignite the hair spray.  I always knew that hair spray was flammable but this was totally awesome.  And the FWOOP sound of the potatoe that was shot out of the cannon was just as exciting.  I can't wait for the boys to show my Dad this. 
 This is neat!

How fun, it reminds me of the bottle rockets in AZ that your family made.
