hehe, actually saw this a week or two ago on CNN, here's a link to the story and in the story a link to the video.  I sent this around my fraternity house, and everyone has been drooling over it.  ::drinking:: ::drinking::

Chris, is this an invisible link?


I think it'd be easier to just build a chair with a fridge built in to hold the beer... potentially less painful too!

I give that landing a 9 . . . on the Richter scale.

In developing his beer catapult, Cornwell said he dented a few walls and came close to accidentally throwing a can through his television. He has since fine-tuned the machine to land a beer where he usually sits at home, on what he called "a right-angle couch system."


Nice call, sounds like you thought more about that possibility than he did... until it almost happened.   ;)

No doubt.  Of all the beer companies that would pay him to use their beer, he picked Miller!?   ::sick::

What is it the Canadians say?  "American piss water"?  No, I don't really like Miller Lite.  MGD isn't bad, but I think any Michelob product is just about the best American beer you can get.  Except that Ultra crap.

I prefer Heineken myself...

I hope there won't be an argument about the beer brand when it comes time to get doused with beer after Airtransrecon passes his checkride....  ::sick::
