For Science! But Really For Amusement…

* Mad Scientist Not Included

Matt Inman from The Oatmeal and Matt Harding from Where The Hell Is Matt? decided to have some fun last night. You see, Mr. Inman was presented with a Tesla Lightning Gun absolutely nothing like similar to the one in the photo above for his 30th birthday.
