    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    Remove my amplifier from your house before your plug that amp in Mark. Thanks.

    Your amplifier is in an undisclosed location (bunker) in or near Haverhill, MA.
    It is being seen to by top men. Top men.

    I watched this yesterday! Great movie. One of my favorites.
    And no, it was not the first time I’ve seen it, just first since 2012 and I didn’t remember any of it. So basically a new-to-me movie!

    That's my East Coast warehouse, Micah...
    They used it for that film.

    You gonna test it in outer space ? I believe fire needs air.

    If I was you, I'd get a real long extension cord, like all the way to Jesse's house. Then have the Fire dept. on standby, the bomb squad, and snipers on the roof to take it out should the test go south quickly.

    lol, loving all the comments about how unstable this thing is.

    Honestly it didn't sound bad at all to my ears. I just didn't much care for the disgusting noxious fumes it exuded during operation.

    Correct me if I'm wrong -- but isn't all of that stuff always standing by at the perimeter of Jesse's bunker compound anyway?

    It took me three checkpoints and a cavity search just to get into Jesse's driveway....

    Not "who" they found, but "what" they found. Lets just say Peta will be paying him a visit. :)

    Oh this reminds me of beyblades. They were little tops that spun around and hit each others, scepter they had launchers, and they each had special “powers”... in other words the creators made some spin fast and others very balanced etc.
    Overall, they were a fun toy, but they got old really fast. Plus, they were based off of an anime TV show, which was dumb. Add to that I don’t like anime very much, so toys based off of a dumb anime show are probably not going to be my thing.

    Haven't heard from Doc in awhile, not a good sign. Any you guys in the NE see smoke on the horizon ?

    I heard someone in Guatemala tried plugging one in too, look what happened there.....and they blamed it on a Volcano, yeah right.

    Make sure you record the original test on video so we can see how it went down.
    And don’t forget your necessary equipment:
    Fire extinguisher
    4-5 buckets of water
    A full fire suit
    A fire truck on standby
    You probably will want a fire hydrant
    A bomb squad
    And last but most certainly not least... a backup house.

    When you open up the box start rapidly huffing the air inside, and let us know if you see stars and/or unicorns.

    Any smoke emanating from the Professor's house I can say in not Monoprice related. Plan to ship the little fire starter out tomorrow! :smile:
