Photo Theme: Cheap

Picture of a cheap Yam-throwing machine I built for a contest. It did pretty poorly - but it was funny how it worked and how short it sent the yams. It wound up just chucking a yam about 5 feet, and spun around humorously.

For Moody Monday

Gregz wonders what a really expensive yam-sling would look like ;-)

Well - there were a couple that had more money and time put into them.
There was the air cannon made out of PVC, using a 12v tire pump to build up pressure.
There was also the one that got the most distance with the Yam: a rocket. 3 hobby rocket engines with a mailing tube. It made abotu a 1/4 mile!
