Oh yeah, yup, I'm feeling left out.
Why don't you send me $100,000 or so, so that I can launch and totally
destroy a couple of mini-Coopers with mil-spec motors?
Just to satisfy some idiot's desire for crash & burn footage.
Yeah, then I won't feel left out anymore.
But hey, the arterial bleeding was "effin' cool".............
Welcome to the a*@hole club, Chad
It's a TV show moron. Who cares what it costs. Someone else paid the bills.
It's no different than Monster Garage where they carve up brand new vehicles
to turn them into other things. Get over it. They hand picked a couple
people with enough knowledge to install the rocket motors and fly them. The
rest are actors and such to fill in the teams. Its a show and nothing more.
It wasn't meant as a ad for rocketry or to make rocketeers look bad. Geez I
was in the ahole club long before I received your blessing. Hey your
boyfriend is calling. He needs a jar opened.
Actually everyone on each team worked on the vehicles, there was no fluff in
the teams for the Mini Cooper episode. There was for others apparently.
Well said Chad - it's just entertainmemt, it's just TV! Although folks may
cringe at the cost of two Mini Coopers in terms of their personal finances,
in terms of the overall budget to produce a TV episode it's really not a big
deal. It seems everytime rocket motors get used for something other than
HPR, it's seen as
And seeing it live was, much like watching HPR launch videos, a whole
different matter. And no, the arterial bleeding was not cool, it was a very
serious matter [especially for Bruce] and was treated as such. Luckily he's
okay. Try it yourself and see how cool it is.
Yeah, who cares what it costs?
Who cares about Bruce Lee damn near getting killed, huh ?
Somebody else paid for that, right?
No, wait, Bruce paid for that, didn't he?
Your not just a member of the ahole club,you should be President!
Ky Michealson, Jodi Michealson, Dave Leininger, Bruce Kelly, Bruce Lee,
Matt Murphy, and Jim Hoffman. Dave had said that Bruce Kelly wasn't going
to be on the show, but he was on the show last night.
The team listing is at
Plenty of people have had ejection charges go off on them during final
prep. Someone was taken to a hospital at LDRS 2003 after they fell off a
ladder when a charge went off.
Dave Leininger told me the ejection cannon came loose when the charge went
off due to poor welds. It appears the cannon coming loose caused the
injuries to Bruce.
