DA! WHAT UP MAH MAN!!!! Srs, come in, lemme show ya mah crib!
Yeah, if you just... step over the jet engine blade... Careful, it's sharp...
Yeah.. Sorry about that. So yeah, over here you can see, we got the TV... The shiny thing? Oh, that's a compresser stage from a different jet engine. Sorry, the house is a bit of a mess I guess...
Why yes, that is a rocket you can see just next to that. Don't worry, it's not loaded. Yeah anyways, next to that we got the subwuffer for out 6.1 sound setup... Kiks up da bass, ya know wot I meen?
To the side of that we have a scale model of a much bigger rocket stage. Something to do with the Apollo space mission or something. This was before all of us were born or sumfink I guess.
Oh that thing? Yeah don't stand on it, it's really expensive. A micro gas turbine, yeah... Yeah, same kind of thing you see on [link]
this except it's experimental and a lot more powerful... Well yeah it's in the living room. Where else would I put it?
This is... a THING! It's actually broken in half, so it's no longer worth the £3,000 it would have cost. It's called an NGV bruv, or Noggle Gizzle Vane. Learn up on your thermo and fluid dynamics dude. Wait wait wait bruv careful of the
seaslug cruise missile rocket motor. Yeah, that's that thing in the center. Don't worry, there's no fuel in it. It's, like, 50 years old. Still awesome we managed to get 3,000lbs impulse of 180 seconds tho... WAIT WAIT BRAH I GOT SOME MOAR NUMBERS FOR YOU AND YO HOMIES...
Oh okay, you're leaving... You haven't even see the other rooms, but sure thing. We've got a really cool selection of wea- ooh. Okay you're leaving... well Bai.
Okay realtalk here for a second guys
All the stuff you see above is real, from the rocket to the cruise missile engine to the jet engine parts. All have been in service at some point and were residing in my living room yesterday (not anymore, Its not really wise to tell the world when your house is filled with expensive tech so I waited until it was moved to tell you guys). This stuff actually happens kinda often, but only really attracted attention yesterday on an artstream.Why?
In short, it's because my job is f**king awesome
. In slightly longer terms, we use things like this to get kids attention when we go into schools and do STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths) activities. One time we did one, oh man we built this air cannon and blew holes in shi- but I digress. The point is we get this stuff to show off to peeps, which is why I'm showing it you guys too. If you've got any questions about the awesomeness on your screen right now or how one gets a job like this, pop them in the comments and I'll get back to youIf you have any requests to conduct STEM activities at your local school (doesn't matter if you're not in England, we do have some people overseas), send me a note and I'll see what I can do.
