See that guy who kind of looks like Ernest Hemingway? He is Gay Wilkinson and his favourite sport is to shoot anvils in the air. Anvils. He says that women ask him: "Why would you like to do that?"
I tell you why, women! Because he can. Just put black powder between two anvils, a notepad with the fuse, light up, and watch it shoot up into the air, stop for a second, and then fall down pretty much at the same spot. Yes! I understand you, Mr. Wilkinson. I actually want to hang out with you, drink beer, fire up anvil, and change our names to Yosemite Sam and Wile E. Coyote for a day. [Riverfront Times via Boing Boing]
