This Slingshot Shoots Christmas Trees

By Darren Orf on at

Nothing communicates the Christmas spirit quite like building a giant slingshot that can fire shaved Christmas trees with a nine-inch nail on the tip.

But that's just what slingshot master Joerg Sprave did and created what he calls "The Santa Slayer." Sprave quickly delimbs his missiles-to-be, leaving only a few on top for fletching, and fires with two rubber bands stretched back seven to eight metres. The results, as always, are devastating.

Not satisfied with just blunt devastation, Sprave then drives in a nine-inch-long nail and pierces his target, confirming that you wouldn't definitely not want to be on the receiving end of this thing.
