FREE OCD Lecture: The Secrets of Jet Propulsion

Sign Up for the Dopest Events Newsletter in the Bay Area

While growing up in The Bronx, my friend’s dad used to build rocket ships to launch off of buildings. And he used hamsters as pilots. While I will remain silent on my opinion of hamster misuse in the situation, I will say that my friend’s dad is now a physicist and that building your own rocket is pretty badass. Tonight, you can learn the basics of DIY jet propulsion with Pete’s Candy Store’s OCD Lecture series. Hackett from the Madagascar Institute has built jet powered bikes and merry-go-rounds. The Institute offers classes, but you can get the Cliffs Notes on how to make art that has the potential to blow off your face for FREE.

After years of denial, Kiley has finally admitted to baring a striking resemblance to Velma from Scooby Doo. Instead of traveling in a van hunting ghosts, she prefers wandering on foot in search of tacos, cheap beer, and fake birds. Growing up in Portland, Kiley enjoyed the balance of urban and green spaces. Then she spent her four years at Ithaca College, and found herself craving more sprawling asphalt in her life. So she moved to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where most of the buildings look like they're about to collapse. Kiley's favorite activities include: getting lost, crafting, sewing, biking, and geeking out at museums. Her love of taxidermy probably makes her a terrible vegetarian, but she doesn't care.
