yes. Im the one. I used a 10 year old rechargeable 9V as a basic voltage half flick tester to see how long it would last. low and behold the battery corrupted and leaked acid all over the trap causing an enourmous amount of smoke and other toxic gases. after repair i was ready to make it smoke. i tested it out in the front yard, some neighbour called HazMat/fire dept. they destroyed the trap and disasembled my pack looking for explosive devices. so i got all of my props licenced with all of the proper warning labels so hopefully it wont happen again. tongue
im gone.

The first time I took my pack to a halloween party, thats when the first accident appen. I used crazyglue the first time and the prop looked bad (I used pieces of a tshirt for the straps just to give you a hint). I entered the club, all light open. I had something like ten people around me. And you know what was the most ironic and funny? The gb song was playing when I entered the place! Someone helped me taking the prop on my back.

Its when I was puting the gun on the prop that the accident appen. I knew it was a bad idea. Theres a part on the prop made to hold the gun but the cable has some pressure and that make the gun turn on itself when it is fixed. The problem is that there was nothing to lock it. So it appened. The gun did a turn and fall on the floor... in all the pieces it was made of. I saw everything. Now what was the most ironic its that the gb song just finished! Lucky me, I had tape. I taped everything togheter. How it looked bad! smile Well, I dint won anything that year...

Now, theres a lock on the prop and that thing never appen, but each time I go to a party I lose a piece. Evertyhing hold with hotglue now but theres pieces that are just too fragile. A prop is not made for a dancing floor smile

Get killed!

Oh man I forgot about that!
One year, I made a pack for my sister! Togheter we went to an halloween party and won the third price(a stereo). I think it was something like 2ham when we decided to leave. We were holding, both two, our new item. When we were walking in the parking, I drunk girl toasted a red light and entered the parking without any break! We were just in the middle! I can remember her face, she just dint noticed, too much concentrated on driving the car! I warned my sister before that, she dint see her coming! We jumped above, and the girl just parked her car. I was crazy! But you know what s ironic? A police officer was driving on the street and saw everything. I was very disapointed. I dint wanted anything more of this. We took a taxi and played that stereo loud!

Actually my proton pack is licenced due to weight and Enough amps to start a motor cycle. so as of last year have Real warning lables all copyrighted by the city of calgary. my packs appearance has been slightly altered due to required power source coverings, etc. its like building a car and driving it. you need it approved by the insurance board and you need plates before you can drive it legally. that and i was looking at a heafty fine for carring around something like that on my back in rush hour.
im gone.

shocked I learned first hand, if you used hot glue to hold any of the major components (the injectors in this case) in place, don't leave your pack sitting in the car all day in the spring on the Mississippi Gulf coast. It wasn't a disaster, I had my heat gun with me so it was easily fixed, but it was something of an inconvenience. And a learning experience. tongue
