Ahoy folks.

Bit of help needed please.  I've just bought a small netbook with windows 8 which is no problem. I've managed to add to bookmarks all my stuff and done everything else, but I can't remember my CWDF password to enable me to log into CWDF on the new laptop. I have my user name and email address of course but not the password. Do I contact the mods to sort it or the rockers?




Tip of the week.

Use a dog or cats food bowl for eating your cereal, soups, stews or desert. The ones of the anti tip over design that won't spill, like many other stupid types of bowels.

  I share my cat Satchidananders food bowl with him. We use it turn and turn about on a rota system. He eats from it in the mornings and overnight, I eat from it lunch times and evenings. Sometimes when both hungry at the same time we dive in and eat in it together.

   He's become quite partial to porridge, lentil soup, stews, and coco-pops and I just love and can't resist Whiskers, Felix and Go-Kat crunchies. mellow.png


How to make a gun.

22 September 2014 - 11:40 AM

First of all you must collect all the bits to construct your gun. The best places to look is in the high street and gutters, outside pubs and dust bins, that's if you want to make your gun on the cheap, although there is one item which I suggest you buy new and that is a jolly old '' lolly pop'', any lolly pop of your favourite flavour will do as long as it has the standard flat stick. I suggest a Magnum lolly which in our case I think would be most appropriate.

  Secondly a match box and lots of dead matches to be found in said gutters and outside in pub smoking areas. Elastic bands come next. This are found littered about all over the streets, discarded by lazy litterbug postmen or I should say postpersons. You will need a good supply of of these in different sizes as they deteriorate quickly in sunlight, post and cheap elastic bands have a special deteriorant added to keep us buying more of em, so its best to keep em in the dark until needed.

 Constructing your gun;--- Enjoy and suck your lovely lolly away until your just left with its stick. Take up your match box and slide out its drawer. Place a thinnish elastic band around the drawer and slide the drawer back into the sleeve part and pull one end of the elastic band out at one end near the top edge. This band will be the projectile slinger. Now take up your lolly stick ''the trigger'' and place the matchboxes end roughly midway on the flat side of the lolly stick and secure around box and stick with a strongish elastic band. Your gun is now complete and nearly ready for combat. Check its action by holding the gun, lolly stick in your palm, finger curled around the front of the box and squeeze the lower part of the lolly stick when a gap will appear between stick and box, this is the breech of your gun. Now forage around again in gutters ect for your ammunition, lots of spent matches, you can never have enough. When collected break them all in half.

  Firing your gun;---- Take your weapon in one hand and a half matchstick in tother and fit it into the elastic band loop at the front of the box,''the slinger and draw it back over the top to trap it between end of box and lolly stick, a little bit of band selection is needed here to get the right tension so the bullet stays trapped and won't fire off prematurely.

  Once loaded you can now shoot it at something or other by aiming and squeezing the lower part of the lolly stick with your palm and all of a sudden, PIIIIIIIIINNNNNNNG away goes you match bullet at great velocity.

     Now before everyone starts moaning and saying what on earth has THIS nonsense got to do with boats. Well they'd be quite right it hasn't unless you've found a Ship matchbox to make the gun and it won't sink like a real metal one. Making things also keeps folk living on boats active and helps prevent boredom and the possible onset of insanity during the winter months. wacko.png
