LOL!!! Great idea. We're making slingshots at our all-section Scout camp next weekend. Another good excuse, but one I won't suggest to the youth. wink

Lesson learned anyway, Frisket.

Over the protests of the Scouts, the Cubs discovered the cool effect of flying coals when one of them started poking the fire when his marshmallow stick. Apparently he thought I was "ruining all the fun!" when I made him stop. Then I got to be an ogre when I explained the meaning of the word "irony" when he got hit with a burning coal after he slammed his stick into the fire in protest.
