Default Re: What do you do with lasers

I cant pin point it. started with the red dot went to the beam went popping balloons then went to burning and the nice colors. Depends on my mood, but I think it will allways be the beam

Destroy mode is when you point it at anything, it goes on as a laser gun that shoots infinite beams that blow up when impact of a surface. Lastly VISIBILITY MODE is the beam is a solid BEAM that shoots strait up and goes on forever making it equal to 10,000W OF GREEN 520nM POWER!! Id make sure I save enough money to invent one!!!!

Its funny when i think about it but lasers make the best lighters XD that at least is the practical use i use them for. And if anyone has ever tried to light a firework with a slight breeze they know how much better a laser makes things.

I know it might be a bit overkill but I usually use a handheld blowtorch to light fireworks lol. But lasers work well too. Both of them won't really be affected by the wind.

Same exact thing with me. Women I tell about them. ( don't mention on a first date, trust me on this one ) Ask what am I going to do with that?
I show them to my men friends, they say " wow, that's cool, where can I get one. LOL

Why can't they all be cool, Like Laserchick.

That's what people ask me too when I show them my lasers. They usually already lose interest after naming prices. Which is why I begin talking about the price tag first, and then tell them where to get them instead of the other way around.

Haha yeah, the conversation between me and say my mother for example goes:
"Gabe, why do you need another laser? You already have like ten."
"Why do you need all those purses?"
"Because I like them and... err... I can't explain it but you wouldn't understand."
"Same here."
"... fair enough"

Also, from my memory Laserchick is the only woman, active or inactive, that I've seen on these forums. Anybody know why this hobby tends to draw men in more than women?

They are always good for scaring away birds, or most creatures that is. Other than cats.

There have been at least 3 others in the time I have been here. One from Washington state and one I think was in Brazil, and I don't remember much about the other one, but none of them have been active in a very long time. I don't understand it either.

Well, where are they going to get the money from to buy a 300$ laser when they already spent that 300$ on useless clothing and such? Haha, I think it's just more of a guys thing. Same with cars, although that market is so much bigger that you're likely to see some women every now and then. There's really only one forum that focuses on lasers specificly, compared thousands of forums that focus on cars.

Hey, guys go shopping too. It's just mainly for lasers, tools, guns and things with powerful engines.

Default Re: What do you do with lasers

It's very interesting. Sometimes I would get very confused as to why, say, my girlfriend would spend $200 on a bikini. That is however, until I realized they are just as confused as to why I'd spend $400 on an inefficient flashlight. Once, right before I was about to drop a bunch of money on my 593.2nm 2-9mW GLP, my aunt said to me, "so what are you buying again? That yellow light?". It was just they way she called it a light, made me question my entire hobby. For about five seconds, and then I bought it anyway.

Sadly that bikini is made by some children in Bangladesh, and should actually cost only 25$. Unlike the laser.
