At the time, we suggested using catapults to throw stuff out of the U.S. Well, it turns out that a company in Virginia is wanting to do more than that. They want to use slingshots to throw stuff off the planet. No, I'm not making this up.
It's a Kickstarter project, called the Slingatron. Only, it calls itself a "railroad to space," but it uses more of a slingshot concept than a railroad concept.
I'm not talking your Dennis the Menace kinda slingshot. I'm talking your David kills Goliath slingshot. The kind that goes around and around then is released with a FTHHPPTT!
Will it work? I dunno. But, I'd like to see it throw something off the planet. Or someone.
Let's start with Barack Obama. Next, Joe Biden. Then, Obama's cabinet. Follow that up with the Democrats in Congress, and then the people that voted for them.
I'm thinking once we do that, we'll have worked out all the bugs, and the Republicans will get the idea that we don't mind tossing folks off the planet. Maybe they'll straighten up and act right.
And, if they don't, we'll still need to test it some more, just to make sure it's working.
But, that's just my suggestion. Who do you suggest we test this thing on? Who would you throw off the planet?
