load paint balls onto golf tees

Shoot the paint balls off the tees, and paint splatters onto the poster board. After you're done, cut the lower edge of the poster board off, (the part with the bullet holes)... and you have firearms generated modern art.... maybe only to simple minds like mine... but my grandchildren liked it.
AWESOME!! Great idea. I don't have any land to shoot on. I just go to ranges, either indoor or outdoor. They don't really like you to set up stuff like that.

I can understand an indoor range not liking the idea, but for an outdoor range.... the components are all biodegradable, and if you offer to let them play too.....

I shoot all kinds of fun stuff when I go to Stalkingbear's. He encourages that kind of behaviour.

Why does a pop from the fountain taste so much better than pop from a bottle or can?

Freshness counts. I used to work in my grand parents' drugstore behind the fountain. That was when carbonated water and Coca-cola syrup had to be mixed, then served. I've always thought that the syrup was degraded by the carbonated water the longer it sat after being mixed up, and tasted flatter.

Completely a guess on my part....

It is the thumb of the server in the glass.


Releases the carbonation.

Will I run out of zip-ties before the Oklahoma winter winds stop breaking them off my tarps over the chicken pen?

If your zip-ties stock runs low, I suggest going to the hardware store and getting more.
