Call me Ghost, because that's basically what I am. This blog has a whole bunch of random stuff from everything (hint though, sci fi's a fair portion of it), so hopefully it's got a little bit of something you'll like. :]
Also, I do occasionally do rp stuff on some other blogs so I guess if you want to check those out, go ahead.

this might be the greatest weapon man has ever conceived.

I am doing this later

Please post blueprints and instructions.

-Paint Roller (preferably one thats wired on the inside so the TP can fit snuggly in place)
-1-2 Rolls of Toilet Paper
-Blow Dryer (or leaf blower for maximum *whoooosh*)
-Duct Tape
-Take paint roller and place a top the barrel (make sure its straight and steady)
-Have at least 5 inches of distance from the roller head to the end of the barrel.
-DUCT TAPE THE SHIT OUT OF IT (make sure the roller is secure and stable for minimal movement/shake. Make it so that the roller wont roll around on the barrel when using or moving around) 
-Once secure, attach toilet paper to roller with the end of the toilet paper going over, towards you. The TP end should be hanging down facing you.
-Make sure the TP is snug and fit so that when the roller spins- the TP spins also. (If not- you’ll need to add something to stiffen it and stay place; maybe a ruler, folds of paper, or more duct tape.)
-Roll out some excess TP before firing to get the roller rolling
-TEST.TEST.TEST (laughing maniacally is optional)
-choose a victim (laughing maniacally is required)
