She's Gone From Suck to Blow
If anyone needs any cedar posts for trailbuiling, stunts, docks etc leave me a note here.
Funny, I was actually going to say trebuchet but I figured too few people would know what I meant.
True story: Last year 2 buddies and myself built one. Not huge like that but it flung a big snowball about 40 yards - when it worked.
Yep... I've heard stories about that... some friends of mine that are engineers at Picatinny did it as well. cool stuff.
One of the guys who helped build it later sent some links about a yearly competition. People get together and build the ones like you pictured - in fact that's possibly where the picture comes from. Things are real insane. Kind of stuff that can toss a piano hundreds of yards into a lake while listening to Whiter Shade of Pale. Now if anyone gets that reference color me real impressed.
OOH! OOH! Pick me: the Fling from Northern Exposure. The best way to send Tooly off to heaven....
Whiter Shade of Pale played when they flung Tooly after he died
