Colin Furze, a plumber and inventor from Stamford, Lincolnshire, has begun building the biggest fart machine ever, which he plans to place on top of the cliffs of Dover and aim across the Channel towards France. His hope is that the French, 21 miles away, will hear the blast.

We've had threads about this guy and his zany inventions before. :D

Nomen est Omen... Furz in German does actually mean fart...

Due for tomorrow between 6 and 7 = 7 and 8 French time. Bet the people round Dover are going to love this!

British inventor? ok, as long as his name is not added to the list of great British inventors.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

That can end deeply in "the pants" as some WWI Germans could tell you... especially if the wind suddenly changes...

This is almost as funny as whoever first thought to wire a horn train in a car to scare pedestrians! Oh Youtube! How many hours did I waste watching you?
