Reply Arete13 says: February 5, 2013 at 17:43 I’ve been watching this guy’s videos for a couple years now. Super helpful for explaining key concepts in classes like strengths of materials, statics, fluids, and dynamics. Reply Robert K. Tompsett says: February 5, 2013 at 17:44 What is a Supersonic Ping Pong Ball Gun? Is it anything like a PVC spud gun? We use spud guns in Ham Radio to shoot antenna wires up into the trees. Reply Nick Leghorn says: February 5, 2013 at 17:57 Its strange, nothing works quite the same as a hastily constructed inverted V dipole. Reply KCK says: February 5, 2013 at 17:55 anybody use this yet for a pumpkin chucker? Reply Ralph says: February 5, 2013 at 18:52 If I was a male Ping Pong, I’d hate a Ping Pong Ball gun. Male Ping Pongs should not be singled out for this horrible and painful treatment. In all fairness, we need a Ping Pong Ovary Gun, just to balance things out. Fair’s fair.

Reply scottlac says: February 5, 2013 at 19:26 Nobody, but the Police and Military, NEEDS a supersonic ping-pong ball thingie… Ordinary physics professors cannot be trusted with these things. Who would hunt deer with these? Reply Cameron S. says: February 5, 2013 at 22:58 “Do not do not try this at home” = “Don’t don’t try this at home” = “Try this at home” I take that double negative as full permission to proceed. Reply repeater says: February 6, 2013 at 00:27 oh, you better believe i’m going to try this at home. Reply mountocean says: February 6, 2013 at 21:54 Yep. That’s logic. I learned the power of the double negative in Elementary school. Since Elementary school is the foundation for all further learning it trumps all eight of their degrees. Reply Lowne says: February 5, 2013 at 23:10 HOLY SHIT that was awesome! Reply MEH says: February 5, 2013 at 23:55 Heh. Boiler up! We used to do something like this (basically his subsonic version) with the shock tube upstairs in the Armstrong Building during compressible flows (Fluids II, AKA aerodynamics) junior year. I’m glad a professor took it to the limit. That’s engineers for you. Reply Crunkleross says: February 6, 2013 at 09:04 Threading a vacuum valve and hose to the barrel of my 338 Lapua as we speak. Somebody hold my beer.
