    Rubber bands can store a considerable amount of energy, and when delivered into a small area that translates into a lot of force.

    Back in the days when MIT’s 2.70 contest was using lower tech, Woody Flowers used to do a safety lecture before turning the students loose with their kits of parts: using a couple of items from the kit, he’d shoot one of the pieces through a sheet of plywood.  After that, no student forgot that this pile of scraps could be dangerous if handled incorrectly.

    Any chance of a regular BoingBoing feature on weapons? Say, the best way to eviscerate a mugger with a Sharpie? Or how to decorate a switchblade with LEDs?

    And this guy has been my hero ever since the zombie-slaying slingshot/hammer/pick with skull ejector. He is simultaneously the scariest and charmingest man on YouTube; he can’t help laughing along with us.
