Just so we’re clear, we’re not dropping the hot dog bun thing. Unfortunately, they take a while to go properly stale. Gonna set up a pipeline this time.

    I’m afraid I’ve missed something

    How are they when they are not stale? Any good? Fire resistant, or combustible?

  3. Sparrowkin Says:

    Can you incubate bacterium in them?

    Are… are…
    Um…
    Are you trying to deep-fry hot dog buns injected with some sort of filling, in lieu of Twinkies?

    Can they be used as emergency road flares?

  6. Squid Says:

    Can I refinish my wood floors with them?

  7. Kristophr Says:

    Ya know … if you drill a hole down their length, and pump LOX through them, they will make good short burn rocket engines.

    The UK uses a similar solid/liquid hybrid engine in its SRBMs.

  8. Sparrowkin Says:

    Kristophr–what’s LOX?

  9. Jess Says:

    With fire resistance, dead air spaces and a convenient size for construction, I can see a natural insulation product. Getting past the pest problem might be an issue.

    Jess, we can combine our proposals for construction industry

  11. Kristophr Says:

    Liquid Oxygen.

  12. Sparrowkin Says:

    ooooooo. that sounds even more interesting then filling ‘em up with and detonating the OTHER kind of lox!

  13. bluntobject Says:

    LOX is a nice start, but surely we can find a more vigorous oxidizing agent, no?

    Dear Santa,
    This year I have been a very good decent kind I didn’t get caught. For christmas, I would like….
