while doing some casual internet browsing, i came across this site . while it is a solution to folks who low hole you or anchor up in your favorite plugging drift, i'm not personally advocating it. i just thought everyone might get a "kick" out of it.
With thanks to Mr. Crabbait .... a word of warning!

hey folks, do not take this post seriously!! it was meant purely in fun. these contraptions are very dangerous to anyone down range as well as folks who happen to be near it when it goes off. i just thought it was a nifty idea.
i was actually considering a machine of this nature for hurling railroad spikes (with fishing rig attached, of course) out to the middle of the river. the guy with the giant sling shot probably gets better performance with his than i'd get with a reasonable sized trebuchet.
I can see it now: the ifish arms race, culminating in the launch of cruise missiles that veer off target and take out Bonneville dam causing a flood that wipes out all of the boats. That's what happens when simply boarding the offending boat with a cutlass and a blunderbus isn't enough for you anymore.
I saw the definitive persuader for bad boating behavior at Julie Cate's birthday party.
A potato cannon...this thing was scary...sent the spuds about 500 feet.
Actually the best is the water balloon slingshot...non-lethal but certainly an attention getter with good range.
<a href="http://www.sillytown.com" target="_blank">SillyTown.com offers 3 sizes of water balloon launchers. A 90 yard launcher for children, a 150 yard launcher for teens, and a 200 yard launcher for adults. Launch balloons over a city block!
If that 'tater gun only sent them 500' it was more of a pop-gun than a cannon. I have seen them that sent potatoes out so fast and far that they were hard to visually aquire for the first couple hundred yards!
