I was doing a little research for work, and came across this. Although it's firearms related, I wasn't sure if it should be posted under autoloaders, hand loading, or elsewhere.:scrutiny:


Toy gas fired missile and launcher assembly
United States Patent 6055910
Abstract: A toy gas-fired missile and launcher assembly whose missile is composed of a soft head and a tail extending therefrom formed by a piston. The piston is telescoped into the barrel of a launcher having a closed end on which is mounted an electrically-activated ignitor, the air space between the end of the piston and the closed end of the barrel defining a combustion chamber. Joined to the barrel and communicating with the chamber therein is a gas intake tube having a normally-closed inlet valve. To operate the assembly, the operator places the inlet tube with its valve open adjacent his anal region from which a colonic gas is discharged. The piston is then withdrawn to a degree producing a negative pressure to inhale the gas into the combustion chamber to intermix with the air therein to create a combustible mixture. The ignitor is then activated to explode the mixture in the chamber and fire the missile into space.

Then my idea for a flatulence powered Bagpipe instrument is not far off. Gotta get it patented before anyone else! Ill be a millionaire!

Also, I'm assuming this is not a crew served weapon.
