Stephen sends over this video he made to showcase the amazing human slingshot, a contraption that’s bound for serious fun and possible bodily injury if not used correctly. :)

A fun game for outdoor parties or trips to the beach, The Human Slingshot is also quite the cardiovascular workout--take a look at the featured video to hear some of the pants and gasps emanating from those giving testimonials. Its creators also tout it as a terrific team- and trust-building activity. Hmm, Congress could use some help with team-building and trust. Could The Human Slingshot be the key to compromise and amicable collaboration between Democrat and Republican politicians? If so, why not take it one step further? Why not take The Human Slingshot to the next UN meeting? I can see it now: delegates from China, Iran, France, and the US all finding common ground via the precarious launching of their persons through space, the rewarding mastery of proprioception, the thrilling achievement of maximum heart rates, and the occasional bloody nose and mouthful of dirt and grass.
