Can You Kill Someone With An Icicle? Slingshot Maniac Investigates

Everyone’s favourite vaguely Eastern European slingshot enthusiast is back again to endanger both himself and the people he loves. Except this time, Joerg is flinging ice — because winter is coming.

The weaponised ice scenario has, in fact, already been attempted by The Mythbusters crew, but they were using guns. Joerg’s art is of a more subtle variety — sort of.

So is a slingshot enough to turn an icicle into a deadly weapon that (terrifyingly) leaves no trace? Not technically, no. But Joerg isn’t ready to give up quite yet. Next, our unhinged friend decides that, instead of a normal piece of ice, he’s going to freeze water into the shape of a giant, pointy bullet and replace the slingshot with a crossbow. Naturally.

This has a bit more of the desired effect, but head on over to the Slingshot Channel to see what happens for yourself. It’s worth it to watch all the way to the end — trust us. Your day won’t be complete until you see Joerg riding around on a miniature motorcycle for 45 seconds. [JoergSprave via Digg]
