    The instructions were too confusing for me. I was hoping it would look like the ones the people of Gondor were using in Minas Tirith in the Return of the King. Oh well.

    i built a trebuchet out of wood and it was horribly inaccurate. but it flew 20 feet.

    these trebuchets wouldn`t be that great because of their weight. their weight is fixed, which means that it won`t go as far w/o wheels. if it were a freely-rotating weight, then it wouldnt matter if it had wheels.

    still, kudos to whoever invented this one.

    haha i built one, and it sucked. Like, i flung one little thingy offa it and this paperclip snapped in half because the batteries were too heavy and my wire bender thingys made it too weak. LOL.

    I tried to make one, but he does not specify what size paperclip to use, so everything was off, and it was hard to work with paper clips. I`ll try again sometime, when I have nothing to do.

    lol, i made one, took me about an hour. it works but it doesn`t throw stuff very far. i could play around with the weight of the counterbalance, the mass of projectile and all that to make it work better but ehh. it was fun though.

    OK, normally I love building tiny stuff that does something but this is just too much. Also, I don`t work in an office so even if I made one, there`s nobody around for me to attack. Ah well, very neat anyway.
