How to weaponize trash

COLORS magazine challenged me to make weapons out of trash.

Well, here is my take:


  1. the 1700 year old oak has a real good color and the pepper spray idea was a good one.i would have never thought of that.

  2. I have been browsing your sling shot videos and the blog here. I would like to let you know that if you ever wish to move to Texas, USA, I can promise you that your attitude and creativity will be in high demand here. Also, we have a couple of German colonies where you can find good German food.

    I especially like your jolly laugh when you shoot things up. I am tired of the dainty minded people in our country these days. I shall be back over and over in the future to see what I can learn. I am ordering Theraband black today. Pray that this old man does not put his shoulder out of joint using it. :-) I grew up in Africa in a missionary home, and we used natural tire tube rubber which no longer exists. So, back to the drawing board.

    My bio on line is almost as strange as yours I hope:

    1. Steve, natural bike tyre tubing is back - they now call it "latex tubes". It is more expensive and meant for serious racing bikes. The gymnastics stuff outperforms it nevertheless.

      McMaster Carr has great natural latex too, it works even better than the Thera Band.

      Thanks for the kind words!
