"3 second delay?...Do you know how much ground a sasquatch can cover in 3 seconds?!" --Garrett Lisi, co-host of Invention USA, reacting to the time delay of fireball gun

A new TV Show on the History Channel called Invention USA follows Reichart Von Wolfsheild and Garrett Lisi as they go in search of the next breakthrough invention. Reichart and Garrett put prototypes to the test and give a tough, no-nonsense evaluation of each invention's potential.

In the premier episode they are contacted by Jim Lebus who invented a fireball Gun, more specifically incendiary paintballs, to protect himself after an encounter he describes below.

"Its a deterrent for a situation out in the woods. A couple of years ago I was in northern California... I was attacked by an animal and I was in my tent. I see this shadow go past the moon. So this tells me this thing is, like, 8 feet tall. And whatever it was, was pushing me into the ground...I'm assuming it was a Bigfoot. I had a .38 with me, but you can't just start popping off rounds. If you gonna cap Bigfoot your just gonna piss it off"

Of course, the first question he was asked by the hosts was a shot to his credibility. Jim was questioned if he was drinking that night, he quickly replied, "No, I was stone sober."

He also was asked if he had ruled out a bear, and Jim said he had not, "...but the only thing it took was the spices."

Below is a video Jim has uploaded to YouTube.
