Encouragement? Encourage what exactly? To pretend life is a video game w. death rays ?Nice words of encouragement there ….. ^^
Daydreams of death rays? What's next, build an electric grid to kill "The Thing". Episode 66 of "Jackass" the series?
It all seems very juvenile for a High School student studying engineering, which he says he is.
A more mature and responsible serious and informed/educated less reckless less risky approach would go a long way--might be something to encourage.
Have a look at what others have responded.
As others have said: -----
RE building a nuclear reactorI keep wondering what people sometimes call „not a big problem“. And how they somehow manage to stay alive and out of jail until retirement. If you want be one of these, you should evaluate your doing.
What‘s your next project? Home made nuclear power plant? „Ups, I found out that my cans of Uranium pellets get a little hot when I stowe them away in my locker. Had to put them on the balcony to cool down, but that‘s not a big problem.“
I guess the restrictive „anti Laser“ laws are made because of people like you.
That’s a nice idea for a next project, I will think about it. If it succeeds I’ll of course will have to post it on another kind of forum.
Edit: I did some research and if I am going to try it, I will probablyuse Thorium instead of Uranium. Not only it is more safe but it’s also much easier to get then Uranium.
To me a problem such as lasing when the device is switched off/not triggered is a STOP AND FIX IT NOW kind of problem.
I don't have any issues with the kid building a laser, but operating it without fixing the above mentioned problem shows a lack of caution that's very concerning, it's like driving your car without any brakes, why not be patient and fix the problem before driving any further and risking an accident ?
