Absolutely.

And a rarity in a thread that doesn't mention boobies.

Sure, that's all nifty and cool until his HOA freaks out.

If he's got a yard big enough for that thing (and half a brain), he doesn't have an HOA.

I doubt that monstrosity will ever leave his yard though.

I can only imagine what a hurricane will do with that thing, but nothing I have come up with yet is very good for anyone living in it.

Which is a god damn shame. This man is my new hero. I wish someone would make a quiet donation so he could finish the farking thing. He's got a solid grounding in engineering! He... he could do it. I long to see him cruising down the highway, steering from that crow's nest, with old-fashioned aviator goggles on, laughing hysterically.

I never said anything about a UFO. I just said the guy who probed my butt was an alien.

I built a hovercraft once. It was no big deal.

/seriously.

When this guy croaks, and his craft is incomplete, what's gonna happen to it then? It may possibly DOUBLE the selling price of the house.

That's awesome. And you're always ready for a flood. Everyone else is on their roof awaiting rescue and you just zoom away.

Schaller started building rockets when he was a kid. He made a solid-fuel jet engine in high school shop class and, at age 15,

If he did that in today's schools, he would be considered a terrist.

I tried to make a submachine gun in shop. The teacher patiently explained to me why it wouldn't work and that most of the tools we had couldn't be used to make a weapon (soft metal, not precise enough, etc.). I made a drafting table instead.

That thing is awesome. Forget just cruising down the highway. Put some rockets on the thing, send it into low orbit.

Ours is bigger, has gambling, er gaming and has a buffet.

"It was originally designed to be a hovercraft. Now it looks like it's going to end up as a houseboat. I won't live long enough to get enough money to make it a hovercraft - not unless I went back to work full time; and then I wouldn't have the time to work on it.

He was wrong, but right at the same time.

He was wrong in that you most certainly could have made a submachine gun in shop, and that the tools and materials would have been adequate for a low-powered (ie., a .22 LR for example) one.

He was right to dissuade you from doing so, however. That's very bad ju-ju, legal-wise.

If he's a retired airframe mechanic, I for one- and perhaps anyone who has had their plane peel open at 35,000 feet, would like to make sure he has receipts for all of the materials and tools used.

His offspring will have a heck of a good day at the recycle center once that skin cancer finishes him off.

I found 45th St in Gifford, Florida on Google Maps, but I don't see it.
Can't find a white pages listing for Dennis Schaller, so I can't get an exact address.
