I’ll Huff And I’ll Puff…

From the BBC children's science show "Bang Goes The Theory...", engineer Jem Stansfield builds himself a giant vortex cannon, and tries to knock down buildings made of straw, wood and bricks...

Impressive, though I'm sure the "Big Bad Wolf" would not have had much of a problem if the third little pig had likewise left out the mortar. Mind you, one of these is just what I need to keep the neighborhood cats out of my garden! :cheese:

just last night my 4 year old said to me: 'when I was a little baby I was in mommie's belly'.

I told him: "I remember bud, you used to yell 'get me out! get me out!' to me.."

he just LOVED that one...
