They had “the world’s foremost trebuchet expert” on the show, and that led me to his site: trebuchet.com. Yep, an entire site dedicated to flinging stuff great distances through the air.
Build a desktop trebuchet to pelt your co-workers with stuff. Learn about complete idiots who used a trebuchet to fling themselves great distances through the air. Or just relax on the message boards and discuss NASA’s plans to put a trebuchet on the moon. Seriously.
And if you just like R. Lee Ermey (and who doesn’t?), visit the Mail Call site and click on the navigation links on the right. Each click is rewarded with a one-word insult from the man himself. Numbnuts. Crybaby. Dirtbag.
(If you get a chance, get out Ermey’s IMDB listing. Fully half of his credits are characters whose names are preceded by a title of some kind. Sherrif Hoyt. Sherrif Gathers. Captain Elias. General Wallace. Colonel O’Malley. Coach Norton. Colonel Ben Wilder. Colonet Fry. Sargeant Hiles. Yeah, he’s not typecast…)
