Hopefully its ok to post this here...if you want to see something disappear, try passing the nozzle of your 7 hp shop vac past the loose end of a new roll of toilet paper hanging on the wall.. almost worth a roll just to hear it and watch it disappear... sounds like a compressor stall on an
F-100...rgr...* slow news day...

LMAO

If you have THAT much time on your hands, why not suck it back out and re-roll that tube?

Still chuckling.....

Well, this wasn't a matter of too much time, I think I experienced that once, but cant remember when it was... Just a careless pass with the nozzle. I will open the canister tomorrow to see what I have in there...rgr...

Hey Thudman,never got to hear a hun make any noise, I was a Navy guy but those F-4's would moan like crazy when the throttle was reduced as they came down the glide path behind a carrier, come to think of it they were moaners on land bases too.

As if it wasn't entertaining enough to put the free end into the toilet & flush (my daughter showed me that trick!).

I've heard that sound with a curtain sheer. My wife didn't think it was funny

We had F-4's on our Nat'l Guard Airbase in Fresno. I loved that sound...the sound of FREEDOM . F-16's just don't make enough noise, but I still look up to watch them.

We live out in our old van. Travel all across this land. Drive until the city lights dissolve into a country sky, me and you - hand in hand.

Way back when, I was in college and lived in a dorm and we used to do that with the toilet-paper rolls in the bathroom. We'd hold the toilet flush-handle down and once the end of the roll got started, it would suck the rest right off the reel. Called 'em "Flushies".

We were on the 10th floor of the dorm and there was 3 other dorm-buildings surrounding a large courtyard, which all helped to create some strong wind-currents. Someone found the same effect could be done by tossing an end of the roll out the window til the draft caught it and striped the rest off the reel. Many a roll went over the parking-lot hanging vertical. Those were "Floaties".


Jeeez, I just realized my parents better not ever read this....
