End Of Week Lighter Fare

So your gun safe is a little full. How to make a pvc blowgun. Might be worth making a few of them before everything is illegal.

Is there anything you can’t make out of PVC? We’ve already shown you how to make a bow and a potato cannon out of PVC, so it’s only natural that we continue adding to your plumbing-sourced arsenal with a PVC blowgun.

Blowguns have been around for thousands of years. Indigenous peoples in South America and Southeast Asia used them primarily for hunting, shooting small seeds, poisoned darts, and handmade clay pellets at birds and other small game.

Modern blowguns may look a little different than their pre-Columbian ancestors, but the way they work is exactly the same. Snug-fitting darts or projectiles are loaded into the tube and propelled by blowing hard into the end of the chamber. The pressurized air sends the projectile hurtling through the barrel until it launches out the other side toward the target

Scientists conducted the most detailed reconnaissance of one of Earth's rarest atmospheric phenomena in a spectacular flight.

For years, Naval Research Laboratory meteorologist David Peterson has been obsessed with one of Earth’s rarest atmospheric spectacles: thunderclouds formed by raging wildfires. Last week, he became one of the only people on Earth to fly straight through one.

Peterson is the lead forecaster for Fire Influence on Regional to Global Environments and Air Quality (FIREX-AQ), a joint NASA and NOAA-led field campaign that’s spending the summer intensively studying wildfire smoke from the ground, the air, and satellites. On August 8, he rode shotgun as NASA’s DC-8 research aircraft passed directly through an anvil cloud as it was developing over the 45,000-acre Williams Flats fire currently burning in the Pacific Northwest.
