Now that's just crazy talk! You can make your own lava! How many people do you know who can say that?? \n\nWhat you need to do is get a cast iron dutch oven, find a good roast, stew or chili recipe and cook a kickass dinner for your parents with your death ray. If that doesn't win 'em over I don't know what will! \n\nAfter you appease them and show 'em how versatile your new death ray is, you can start running your own experiments. Melt some pennies, see if you can get it hot enough to melt steel, make some lava, blow up your a-hole neighbor's car, blind salespeople and Jehova's witnesses... \n\nThe possibilities are endless and quite frankly I'm a little disappointed that you don't see it. C'mon man, unleash your creativity and imagination! You NEED a death ray!\n\nPost of the day!\n...blind salespeople and Jehovahs witnesses....\nAwesome.
