Bad Ammo: Flowershell Load Blasts Seeds into the Ground
By The Editors
Here's your dumb idea of the day: the Flowershell, a shotgun shell that disperses seeds.
According to the creators, it's a standard 12-gauge shell with a reduced amount of gunpowder and a shot cup full of seeds (12 different varieties from sunflower to carnation) instead of lead. The idea is that you go around blasting these things into the ground to grow flowers.
Don't try this at home, but if you do, make sure to avoid rocks or other hard surfaces that are sure to cause ricochets.
