    Talking Think My brother Would Enjoy..........

    My (Slightly) older Brother once came up with an interesting trick. We had a Skeet Throwing machine that worked pretty well. One day, sitting around the shop, we were fixing a few toys for the kids. (Kid's idea, they break 'em, we fix 'em) A leftover seat from a toy tractor somehow became bolted to the throwing arm on the skeet machine. A couple of test swings, and we were ready. "Kitty, Kitty, Here Kitty" a few times. Being smarter than 2 Firefighters, the Cat remained out of sight. Sister-in-law looked in to see why we were calling the cat. To make a long story short, the seat disappeared from the skeet machine, and the Cat never got a test flight.

    2,607 feet is my high score so far. My two cats, Jake and Mia think I am a sadistic "bahstid"!

    THIS GAME STOLE HUNDREDS OF HOURS OF MY LIFE AND I MISSED OUT ON GETTING INTO THE RECORD BOOKS BY 300 FEET!!!!!
    I MUST RESIST THE URGE TO PLAY IT AGAIN!


    me and my mates used to play it a few months ago and i was really cut when my kitty hit a spike 300 feet short of getting into the records. It would most likely have bounced over cause it had REALLY high velocity.

    For all the life of me, i cant see a firefighter going to hell. At least not for very long. We would end up putting out all the fires and annoying the devil too much.

    They do as long as the drop is less than 40 feet.My sister reported that at Tulane,some of her dormmates would drop cats from various heights to see if they'd land on all fours.

    Unhappy Duh..

    Bollocks... sorry, must have been fantasizing that I could shoot O.J. out of / or with that cannon. You're right on, Bronto Skylift, not Bronco..
