    Watermelons … or pumpkins. Or, if you’re Monty Python, cows?

    Back in his younger years, David Letterman had a recurring segment where he would drop watermelons and other things off a five story tower.

    Now, if he’d said pianos, I wouldn’t have believed it. But then . . .

    After the near fatal accident during the last aired “Punkin Chunkin” event, it hasn’t been held since (insurance too high). Several smaller events are held at other locations around the country, and I’m sure that several ‘amateur chunkers’ are still pursuing the perfect launcher.

    Once you get tired of launching watermelons and cows you can head over to Id and show Rodney and the FINK your new toy.

    I’ve watched several, but prefer my potato cannon. On second thought, my Wrist Rocket to shoot cherry bombs was fun too.

    A long time ago it was an annual competition for the engineering department where I got my undergrad degree, to have the students build catapults of various styles and fling beer kegs. Being students, it was of course their sacred duty to empty the beer kegs first, then fling them.

    B.C. is long on humor but a little short on the technology of trebuchets. The long bed and the sling for the projectile are missing. About four years ago, I got to see a full-size trebuchet in action, flinging pumpkins up to about 100 yards. My grandson and I also built a table-top size one from a kit a few years ago. I was impressed that he quickly learned the proper name for it and was able to make it work fairly well.

    Got to say – launching pumpkins and watermelon with a trebuchet and firing off potatoes with a potato gun was about as visceral a weekend as I can remember.

    Amazing what those molecular fabricators and optical educators can do for them in this very hot and sunny future after regular humanity has mostly died out. Except at the poles and in orbit.
