Aquapod Bottle Launcher

Who wants to try the Aquapod bottle launcher in their backyard? It shoots water-filled 2L sodie bottles up to 100 feet in the air with the assistance of nothing but its dock, a bike pump, and your foot. Got a beef with the neighbors? I hope so because if you don't, you're about to. Just tell Mrs. Conroy it's cool, though. Shooting used plastic bottles onto her property is just the superior method you've come up with for recycling them.

Attach an ordinary plastic bottle about 1/3 filled with water to the Aquapod's port, and an ordinary bicycle pump to its valve stem, and take a few pumps to pressurize the system. You're fully loaded once the check valve inside the front leg releases pressure and water. Then grab the length of rope attached to the bottle's safety and get the Fatburger away from the base. Countdown 3, 2, 1...NASA in a bottle time.

The Aquapod bottle launcher system is not recommended for children under 14. At least that's the manufacturer's recommendation. I think it looks like the funnest toy of the week, but I don't really recommend it for anyone because I don't want to be held accountable for the monetary and physical damages that will likely accompany its repeated use. Especially not the ones I incur myself.
