Strap-on slingshot destroys things, gives you upper-body workout

Slingshot Channel guy builds his "most dangerous weapon yet"

By  

Lost in the shuffle of yesterday's April Fools' video was this very-real video by Slingshot Channel creator Joerg Sprave, who usually posts his new videos on Sunday. This week, he took the original idea of his pencil shooter and went big - real big. The new weapon is "a full size version of the pencil shooter, maxed out to the biggest size that can be operated by one man alone." In fact, it's so big that you have to strap it around your midsection and use your arms/shoulders to fire the weapon.

It doesn't look very accurate, but in case you miss you can pummel your enemies with your newly developed shoulder and arm muscles.
