    1. I have no idea what’s going on here. What is this for? I’m not familiar with this type of deal.

      but I’m excited!

    3. Alright, the city of Helena, MT holds an annual Cardboard Regatta in Spring Meadow Lake. The Regatta is a fund raiser for a non-profit organization that helps people with disabilities, and in order to generate competitive interest local stores and restaurants donate gift certificates as prizes. The only real rule is that a boat must be made entirely of duct-tape and cardboard (various other materials can be used but only in small amounts). The boats are first judged on their originality which is then followed by the races. We basically won every prize they could throw at us, including victory over our competitors and the shocked looks carved into their faces. All-in-all, with a cardboard Star Destroyer, that I kicked across a lake, with a total cost of roughly $20 to build, we landed ourselves nearly $400 in various gift certificates.

      tl;dr ~ we’re five nerds from Montana that won $400 in gift certificates by entering a Star Destroyer in a cardboard boat race.

    8. Yeah, I just realized what he meant by kicking it across the lake, and by “optics system.” I only briefly looked at it earlier.

      Now it looks to me like he made a periscope out of two mirrors, and was indeed under it kicking. I R SO SMAHRT

      Yes, I would also greatly appreciate it if you could name everyone from the team, seeing as how all I did was drive it. Using the second picture in the series for reference the members of my team are (from left to right): Dylan Smith, Matthew Taylor, Justin Harvey, Kevin Ward, and Taylor McCormack (not pictured Beav Murnion).

    12. Thanks for that Neshamah. When I’ve published it (before the end of the week) I’ll drop a link back in here for you to check it out.

    13. Does it have to be human powered, or could you attach something like model rocket engines to shoot it across the lake?
