    I had a project in college where we were to make a toy with pencils, phone books and rubber bands as our only materials. I made a toy pistol that shot pencil darts. It was fun. I wish I had a picture somewhere, I think the gun is in one of many boxes in storage.

    I know this is a curmudgeonly question to ask, but what qualifies these as “Mini-Weapons of Mass Destruction” instead of just ordinary “Mini-Weapons”?

    I especially like the ping pong shooter.

    Without having read the book, allow me to put my oar in:

    The shoelace blowdart: cut a shoelace off about 1/2 inch above the aglet ( and stick a simple pin from the material end, through the centre of the aglet to create a point. Fuzz out the shoe lace material at the other end to create ‘feathers.’ Use a simple drinking straw as a blow pipe.

    Also, a quick hand crossbow can be made using a short length of square dowel as the handle, a single steel bristle from a street-cleaner brush as a bow and for your arrow you can splice a compass point into a wooden kebab skewer.

    When the lilliputians attack, I for one will be ready.

    Reminds me of the Office Bricolage contests that the most excellent & sadly defunct Bleach Eating Freaks used to run.
