From my cold dead hands
I now have a flat bed trailer to pull behind my bicycle.
The Australians are coming for my guns.
I'm a tiny person and fear for my safety while in public, but only here in America.
Tour de Fat will be coming soon, well end of summer anyway. Dont know what the TdF is, look it up nerds.
I have plans for a trebuchet that should throw a tennis ball almost a hundred yards with a 30x 36" base and a coffee can full of cement. water balloon experiments soon.
And so we are about to leave on a mission to obtain the necessary bits needed for a bicycle mounted weapon of medieval destruction. Granted, I should be finishing a leeboard this weekend but the kids find that boring, where as hurling objects through the air seems much more gratifying to them.
I'm thinking ash would be suitable for the stresses involved? Do I need a license to mount it on the front of the boat?
In fact, if you can saw a penciled line, apply glue, drive nails, and bring a modest measure of patience to the task, you can build and launch a smart and able craft in as few as 40 work hours. You need not be driven by lack of tools, materials, skills, or time to abandon in frustration a project you conceived in a spirit of pleasurable anticipation.
