Spring Water SpitBall

sanitary spitting device for the fun of it

A device that fits comfortably in your mouth and out of sight when your mouth is closed. It has spring action that allows you to open your mouth to auto load a small ball of water into a firing chamber and then as you close your mouth the spring releases and fires. A small tube pops out just far and long enough to aim and fire. When closed all mechanical parts are sealed internally. The balls have a thin coating that completely disolves when ruptured, and come in handy reloadable strips.

Kids should love it because they are kids. Some adults would like it because they are kids. Bottled (spring) water companies might want their name on it.

       True, but rudeness seems to be making money for some reputable companies lately. One fast food chain i can think of wouldn't be above it. It gets them attention. Who knows how low one might go, and it could turn into a flash craze, and then a collector item.

       I think it's still legal to shoot people who spit here. At least I hope it was.

       Well technically this is not spitting, spitting, it's just like-spitting. I should spit you, soon as you put that water cannon away.

       This could only be good if it were rigged up to the rear of your car. But I don't think it's a good idea to encourage spitwads for the kids.   

       On a side note: Aliens wouldn't want to fly over China because of the dense clouds of smog making visibility (for them and the Chinese) nearly impossible. That would mean that they'd have to use some form of GPS in order to navigate to where they're going and this signal would mean that they'd surely be found out by SETI.

       I think the first UFOs date back to centuries ago in China, but i mistook the line from the John Lennon song Nobody Told Me. He mentions UFOs over New York, but also mentions China in the song.   

       I'm now thinking forget the water balls and just refill a chamber for streams of clean water that can be shot a distance depending on the strength of your jaws. The car thing sounds interesting, but it should be for willing participants who aim for each others reservoirs/targets/cups to be fired back.

       If you put the reservoir in the stomach, it would hold more spring water, and one could empty it forcefully with a vomiting-type action through a tapered directional spout emerging from the nose. Any vomit produced would probably exit by the mouth, somewhat less forcefully.

       Like the nose part, but this has to be clean you know? Clean spit!!!

       When i was a child, we did this the old fashioned way. It was called 'Gleeking'.   

       It took a little practice, but by flexing your tongue and stroking it against the bottom of your mouth in the right way, you could shoot a focused spray of pure saliva several yards long. It was best done in ears or on the back of the neck of classmates.   

       May not have been totally sanitary, but... cleaner then normal spit.   

       (for the British, a yard is how far you can carry a stone)

       When I was about 8 another boy spit on me several times during a sunday sermon. I promised him a beating when we got outside so he turned it up a bit. I held back right up to the middle of the closing prayer and then snapped. I wonder what Jesus would have done, but I was only human.
