The trebuchet method is far cooler.


I wonder where the pumpkins land?


I'm amused that the one guy is described as "Canon Engineer".

I'm now envisioning a body of work researching the aerodynamics of squash-shaped projectiles.



If he's aiming east, he might hit Kingston (kidding, sort of). My guess is he's aiming west, which is into Catskill Park.

Actually, looking at Google Maps, it looks like he can hit the back end of Gill's Farm, it's that big.

Live them, love them :D

Nov 6th, 7th and 8th, 2009.. Nassau Delaware.. the countdown continues!


For years, we have heard stories about our friend's canon - a pirate canon - he used to shoot oranges and apples from the back of his car as a teen. Apparently, there were a bunch of guys driving around town with these things - sending showers of lemons and such onto beaches and into picnic areas. This same friend called my husband just yesterday to say, "I have some wire chairs I want to flatten. Got any ideas?" - The immediate plan was to use my husband's sculpture studio and with the help of forklift and pulleys drop a huge iron table from the 25' ceiling onto the chairs. (Here, only the wife seems to be thinking of all the ways this gambit could go catastrophically wrong. They are gleeful and excited. I'm telling you, it's a real chi raiser.) But later in the day my husband spies a stranger on a steamroller, and now that guy is giddy, too.

Definitely a boy thing.
