Slingshot and improvised weapons guy, Joerg Sprave, put his Teutonic know-how to the test by crafting a building-sized launcher to hurl bowling balls at his opponents.

Propped at a 23-degree angle, with a 500-600 kg (1,100-1,320 lbs.) draw-force, the rubber band-powered launcher finds a spherical hunk of composite no problem.

“Achtung, fertig, los! Ho Ho Ho.”
