Also, shoot the guy who's handling the glue gun. Far too messy. More glue = more weight.

Sanity check

Have you talked to any aeromodellers about this? Or even the BMFA? I've a hunch you materials and construction methods are laughably heavy.

Another scenario amuses me - the volume of air trapped in the straws would expand by a factor of 100 going from sea level to 100k feet. If this had no outlet, the stucture would go pop!

Points of information

A MANPAD (MAN-Portable Air Defense) is sod all use against a tank ;)

The Lawgiver couldn't explode a bullet at a pre-set range. It was a Sov beam-weapon that could pass through solid matter and explode at a manually-selected range in the story 'War' when Dredd was running Luna-1 (Luna City? - can't remember) [Prog 51]. It was defeated by running like buggery towards the enemy, the enemy not able to set the correct range quick enough, and giving them the old 'standard execution' round.

@AC Market Share

It could be there is less malware for Macs as the scammers know you've already been scammed by Apple and had sod all cash left for them to nick.
