pencil cross-bow
From the book Mini Weapons of Mass Destruction by John Austin, and picture courtesy of wildammo.com, we’ve got this handy-dandy guide to building a crossbow out of pencils! (And a pen.)As fun as this little project looks, it also looks quite dangerous; I don’t want anyone reading this to end up in casualty because they ended up with a pencil in their eye. If you’re going to build this, don’t fire it around other people. Instead, practice at home on a pillow, alone. And wearing a crash helmet, lest your bolt pings off a lampshade and heads straight back at you.Have you had any inspirational ideas for in office warfare? Have you made any deadly weapons using everyday inconspicuous office supplies?
