Can top thingy shooting

Post by Bounty » Sat Jul 08, 2006 12:17 pm

There was a time when the top of a Cola can etc came off in two pieces and it was possible to project it some distance by 'twanging' one bit against another. We used to see how far we could 'twang' them. Unfortunately owing to the redesigning of can tops sometime in the 1980's you can't do it now.

I wandered into this thread expecting to find tin pan alley. Didn't expect to find lessons in the destructive power of Coke cans. (Bit before my time, sadly...)

They've never been the same since they took off the proper ring pulls...
? I must have some booze. I demand to have some booze.
? This place has become impossible. Nothing to eat, freezing cold and now a madman on the prowl outside with eels.

I remember doing that!

How we didn't maim each other is a miracle.

The PC brigade would have a field day with that one.

I will tread more carefully in future in case you fire can tops at me :shock:
