10 things we'd do with a real gravity gun

The gravity gun is a godsend to Gordon Freeman throughout the Orange Box. As adept at creating impromptu platforms, bridges and makeshift shields out of whatever’s laying around City 17 as it is at blowing bits off headcrabs; it’s perhaps the most intuitive and visceral gun in games.

So just imagine how amazing having one in real life would be. Solving complex physics puzzles. Helping kids get their balloons and cats down from trees. And just basking in the technological and scientific boundaries mankind had broken for such a device to exist. Actually, sod all of that. With a real gravity gun pitted in our petulant palms we’d get up to the following acts of laziness, deviancy and homicide.

    Yeah, but surely you wouldn't have to earn the money, you could just lift out people's wallets!

    haha For number two, those are pictures from two different games. The picture on top is Angels vs. White Sox in the 2005 ALCS, and the bottom one is Phillies vs. Rays in the 2008 World Series.

    Simon Cowell would say,"You are the worst excuse of a car I've ever see. All you could do was crush my spine, encave my skull, and shatter my testicles. Pathetic." And then Cowell begins to rub his nipples until he bleeds out.

    Question? Maybe they could use the grav gun to help a qb complete passes. Answer? This has already happened. It's called Brett Farve's Agent. *Oh, that makes sense! haha.
