    Rage against the dying of the light (blindness) as we move farther into darkness.
    Instead of “do I dare to eat a peach,” I wonder “do I dare to squeeze the trigger.”

    Dylan Thomas drinking one of numberless shots of whisky.

    The White Horse Tavern in New York. Where Thomas drank his last shot of whiskey.

    I had to chuckle when I saw that cartoon.
    Not because of the content or the message, but because of the coincidence- I’ve been thinking about building a flame thrower for a while, and today I was given most of the materials to make one.
    And it’s LEGAL in my state, too!
    It’ll definitely bring a helluva lot of LIGHT.

    The average price of an old WW2 model like the M2 or M2-2 is insanely high- usually around $20-30K. Way too much for my wallet.

    But a DIY one can be made from various plumbing parts, two steel bottles, (like welding tanks or fire extinguishers) a metal backpack frame, a couple of gauges, and a few odds-n-ends for less than $275.
    Depending on the size of the tanks and their maximum pressure ratings, it can “broadcast” up to 60-70 feet. This is going to be a fun project.

    I can’t think of a better “crowd control” tool that even the most rabid BLM or Antifag would be more scared sh*less of. Can you? If so, please let me know.

    I dunno’, Pete. Legal or not, if you uncork your flamethrower on a bunch of unmentionables, you’re probably gonna’ get a hell of a fine, have to do community service, and worst of all, they’ll make you take a class in intersectionalistic racial sensitivity, or something.
    But, then again, maybe if you let the cops play with it for a while they’ll cut you loose with a warning.

    Best call that interesting device, a noxious insect control unit. Could become a “too white” persons best defense against raging commie army ants in say Portland Oreo-goon.

    Please post a short video of your device in operation. Just curious.

    propane torch + 300mph leaf blower = tsunami super nova exploding air

    Have you tested that idea? Could be a winner.

    Pete, please keep us informed on the progress of your flamethrower project. If I can’t find an AR-15 in stock somewhere to spend my $1400 stimulus check on, I may have to just go and build my own flamethrower to compensate. Sounds like it might be more fun than Elon Musk’s Boring Company $500 flamethrower too.

    Gerard, thanks for putting up with us twisted sods. we appreciate it.

    Just put together my IFAK kit based on https://www.simplysurvival.com/ifak-how-to-make/
    More and more I think all old men; refusing to go gentle, shooting Diablo 12 gauge pistols, reloading 209 primers, felling, bucking splitting a few cords of firewood, etc., or living really dangerously, going downtown, otta have one handy.

    This started out briefly… very briefly, about Dylan Thomas’ most famous poem and then we got onto flamethrowers. George Carlin pondered this in depth, too.

    Can I mount a flamethrower turret on my car in case I get stuck in an Antifa Meat traffic jam?
    I could fit some huge tanks in the thing.
    Maybe a South African style frame mount on all four sides.
