The Human Slingshot Game: What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

human-slingshot-game

We’re counting down the days until the above “toy” gets banned from shelves everywhere, but until then, we’ll encourage as many people as possible to get it. It’s a very large band of stretchy material that is meant to be used by 4 people at once.

“Gameplay is simple, but amazingly fun. In a synchronized pattern, players run toward each other and into the walls of the giant band creating the momentum necessary to catapult the other players across the confines of the slingshot.”

Grown men hurtling towards each other with no protection, aided in their momentum by a giant stretchy rubber band? Sign us up!

A description really doesn’t do the Human Slingshot justice. We suggest watching a few seconds of the below video. Then, once you spend the $75 asking price and receive the product, we’d like to remind readers that alcohol has been known to enhance activities that require coordination. That said, we’re not liable for any damages that your body may incur.

Super Safe-Looking Human Powered Ferris Wheel

Let us (the Internet sometimes being a random rather than efficient engine of discovery), bring you a video from almost 4 years ago, but only now discovered by your faithful editors. It’s a mind-bending clip of a human-powered Ferris wheel in a place that looks like maybe India, although we’re just guessing. We’re particularly fond of the apparent lack of any instinct of self-preservation displayed by some of the fools who hurl themselves into the air in a bid to both propel the wheel and give themselves a bit of an adrenaline rush in the process (we’re looking at you, guy in a white shirt…). Just watch and think about all the lawsuits if this was in the US of A, then giggle a bit. We did.
