Being back in physics class for the first time in *cough*twenty*cough* years, I can now definitively tell you that unless you get your catapault shot right in someone's trachea, it won't be much use that way.

We went slingshotting in class last week to measure kinetic energy and what did I have in my pocket? Yes, a 120 spool.

Smack the airborne ranger just back from Iraq upside the head with it at your own peril. Trust me on that one.
