but thanks for that link, the smaller ones are awesome, and well priced!
i'm sure i could find....something....to do with some of them....

DM

I would love to buy the big mag but I'm afraid it would get stuck to something and I would never be able to get it off

the trick I was thinking of is; if you used an electrically activated latch. You could take a piece of fine wire that is concealable and run it to either a couple different fingers on the same hand or even from one hand, across your back, and to the second hand. Any exposed wire could be concealed with make up of some sort or liquid fake skin.

or if you are really die hard, you could have the wire concealed via surgery.


as to the mags; using a magnettically controlled latch, some of those mags are small enough, yet strong enough to be concealable yet still have enough field effect to be useful. Some of them could actually be on the back of the hand and still work.

again, surgery comes to mind for these as well.

we seem to have a whole 'snow white and the forest animals' thing going on here...
a friend and i were standing next to the car talking, and a rabbit hopped right on over to us..just sat there watching us talking! i could have reached over and pet it! i've been working outside on the house and deer walk through the yard... and turkeys... and rabbits... always the rabbits...
even the hummingbirds, dragonflies and other local flying critters seem to like to land on us to say hello!
(either that or they're all saying "get the **** outta here, human!)

yup, seen all of them too. but do they fly up and land on you?
do the other critters walk up to you while you're out there talking?
do the deer walk through your yard while you're out there HAMMERING???
lotsa snakes too, but i just shoo them back to the woods.... they have work to do.

well, friends that are deer hunters have told me that if you are squeaky clean the animals shy away. As such, I would guess the inverse would attract them, or at least not spook them.

maybe that says something about the personal hygiene DM.

scuba dave; did it sound like here:

http://identify.whatbird.com/obj/183...oodpecker.aspx

about half way down the page is a sound clip. It also has another bird that sounds familiar.

After dark the other night, while my neighbor lady and I were standing in my driveway talking, a baby squirrel walked up to within 2 feet of her.

We never usually see squirrels at night. That little guy must have snuck out of his crib to go out to play.

Yes, that has to be it - wish I had my camera
I looked at every woodpecker & that is the only one that the sound clip matches. But its MUCH more impressive in person
They have been using the tree for a few years - dead - many holes

hey DM, I was looking at a few of my bookmarked sites and found this little gem. Notice ~1174 lbs pull. I love the warning; remove all metal objects within a 5 foot radius.

About the magic boxes... I used to play the drums and I would tap on anything. Might a little rhythm be necessary?

There is a hilarious book about this called Catapult: Harry and I Build a Siege Weapon, by Jim Paul. Highly recommended.
