    Well in pinball machines, they've used bumpers for years as the term ;)

    I like "collision". Or "concussion".

    Love it. I was thinking of a bounce of bumpers but that's too alliterative.

    So my picture shows my colllision of bumpers::rimshot::

    "Bumpi" was the first thing that came to my mind. Having just rec'd my first bumper from LouS recently, I agree that there's something special about 'em. So cool to feel that bumpage (bumporama?) thing happening when you wind 'em up.

    Excellent Ted. So where are the pictures? You know how it goes, without pictures it doesn't exist.

    Very nice, but then you would expect nothing else from the stable of Lou S.
