Whenever I feel I’m not making progress…

brains trusts like these make me feel good about my catapults.

Really good.

And my risk management plan has no hit 20 pages not counting individual machine operating requirements.

  1. Rule #1: No one stands in front of OR BEHIND the trebuchet when it’s being fired.
    Rule #2: The release mechanism will be designed to work from a distance of at least 2 meters to the side. 5 meters is better.
    Rule #3: The sling releases at the top of the swing, not at the bottom.

    Interestingly there are many many people who once saw a picture of a catapult on a movie poster and this has qualified them as experts. This is enhanced if they are “engineering students” and means that they don’t need to do any research.

    the roughly 50% of these people can count themselves lucky that all they got was ironic clapping for their failed efforts while the another 46% can thing themselves bloody fortunate that no one was badly hurt and then go on to pull the same stunt again thus trying to get into the last 4% who are thnkful for medical insruance when they should have put some effort into not cocking it up in the first place.

    If you have done you risk identification and planned for failure you don’t get injury. Its as simple as that.
