Me too!!! A full sized one would be ideal but a half size trebuchet would still be loads of fun!

Just think of how fun it would be to huck diseased dead cows into a crowd of eco-tards!

Looks like an old timey pump jack to me.



I wonder if there's any oil out there.

Kind of what I was thinking Scout... You grow up seeing something all the time and then you start to see it in other things. lol

I would chunk small volkswagons at the tards that live on the other end of my road.

Hucking things at the neighbors would make me soooo happy. Except our one neighbor. We like them.

Scout, I think the old timey pump jack may have been based on the basic principles of the trebuchet. Trebuchets are really old timey.

When I lived in Bakersfield we would go drinking in the patch and talk the new guy into riding one. They NEVER looked as clean as that one though.

But do you have to click a button to do that?

I removed 3.0 and downloaded 2.0 again. Back in business.

I know a place, Dare, but they're all "temporarily out of stock."

Is that your castle, Dare?? You've really let the stonework go. Might need a mason.

I think that must be his neighbor's castle, Tiny. I don't think he would be using his trebuchet on his own wall... unless he's putting in a new driveway or something.
