On hot summer days everyone is looking for a fun and exciting way to cool off, I find the best way is water balloon fights.  Where I live my friends and I make the local skatepark a very dangerous battle zone.  The slingshot takes two bungie cords and a piece of material that will hold a water balloon, and won’t break if stretched.  Have two people pulling the two bungie cords, and one person pulling the water balloon back as far as you want to shoot, then aim for the unexpecting bikers riding by, release and watch the biker take a fat water balloon to the face.  Just be careful the moving target don’t see you, if they do, pick up the skateboard and leave.  They tend to get kinda mad after getting ahnialated by a blazing ball of water.  Just try not to hit the people that look like they would get butthurt and call the cops.  Although the slingshot may bring some trouble to you, the fun part is watching them blame random people in the skatepark.  If your going to use the slingshot, use it in an area were you can hide the contraption and blend in with a crowd, so they don’t realize it was you that drenched them with water.  Happy Valentines day, and have fun launching water balloons into your valentine’s face.  Send me some videos of you and your friends launching water balloons at people’s faces.

P.S. Please don’t launch tomatoes, cabbage, apples, bananas, carrots, or eggs its gross!


Homemade slip-n-slide

Thanks to George Taylor from Vimeo.

All you need to make the slip-n-slide is a giant tarp, and water.  I find it easiest to find a big grassy hill that has sprinklers instead of sending water though a hose down the tarp.  Sometimes the water doesn’t get to certain spots, so you might get a pretty good rash, but it will make a laugh with friends.  Once you successfully build and use the slide it is extremely fun.  It makes it more fun if you set up a couple of obstacles on the slide and play some human bowling.  I tried popping the wheels off my skate board and using that, but your going to need some dish soap for that extra slide.
