A challenge issued from Dan...greenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread
You have four weeks to kill. So here begins JYW's home version! This must be accomplished with a minor! (Use your kids, niece or nephew, grandkids, or borrow one from the neighbors.)
You can only use the following items... A Shoebox 3' of string Duct Tape Any color or variety of paint A coat hanger A mini flashlight 8 - 1" or bigger washers
You must submit your interest to compete via this thread by 3/31/01. The game will officially start 4/01/01 if there is at least two applicants. You must submit an electronic photo of your "invention" to the above email address. They will be judged by my 9 and 11 year old.
The coolest item will be posted on our website and will recieve a 6 pack of their legal beverage and a six pack of the minor's favorite soft drink shipped in their honor (subject to availability).
This contest is not affliated with Junk Yard Wars or RDF Productions. (Just spend an afternoon helping a kid learn!)

I dunno, guys- I think I smell a trap! Somehow, I suspect that Dan has already built a functional replica of the space shuttle using just those items.
