Video: Even the most mild-mannered among us can't spend an afternoon inside a sprawling IKEA warehouse without leaving full of rage. But if you want to drown your frustrations, do it in cheap hot dogs and soft serve ice cream instead of walking out the door, determined to weaponise those tiny IKEA pencils.
It seems like the best ping-pong players in the world have a sixth-sense for knowing exactly where the ball is going to be, often without even looking. But put them on the receiving end of slingshot-master Joerg Sprave's new ping-pong ball gatling gun and they won't stand a chance.
As much as we'd love for slingshot-designer Joerg Sprave to visit Australia on a publicity tour, it's creations like this — a Nerf blaster made lethal using razor-sharp scalpel blades — that will probably result in him being barred entry to the country.
Joerg Sprave, the internet's favourite weaponiser of perfectly safe and innocuous objects, is back with a build that will up the risk factor at your next picnic. Because while getting hit in the head with a Frisbee might hurt, getting hit in the head with a Frisbee covered in surgical scalpels is a guaranteed hospital visit.
Strict safety regulations and litigious lawyers mean your kids' toy foam blasters don't have a lot of power behind them. And that's a good thing, unless you spend you days making insane slingshot creations and have decided that Nerf's Rebelle Bow Blaster needed an upgrade like Joerg Sprave did.
His true passion might be designing and building some of the most ridiculous slingshots the internet has ever seen, but even Joerg Sprave needs to stretch his creative wings from time to time.

Joerg Sprave is YouTube's pre-eminent creator of all things slingshot. On The Slingshot Channel, he shows off his various crazy-genius creations varying from all different levels of lethality.

Before the smartphone revolution left the company behind, Nokia was synonymous with mobile phones, particularly handsets that could seemingly survive anything. The Nokia 3310 is still considered to be one of the most indestructible of its breed. And who's better-qualified to prove that than the mad scientist of slingshots himself?
Being able to send a playing card whizzing across a room with a quick flick of the wrist is a neat party trick, but Joerg Sprave has always been more interested in slicing open targets than impressing party guests. So he used his mastery of the slingshot to design and build a weapon that uses regular old playing cards as ammunition.
It might be a common fear, but being afraid of needles is completely understandable. Who in their right mind likes being jabbed with a long, thin metal tube? No one. And while Joerg Sprave's heart might be in the right place with his latest creation, it's hard not to be even more terrified of just the concept of a syringe slingshot, let alone seeing it in action.
Leave it to Joerg Sprave, the internet's favourite slingshot-building madman, to finally come up with a guaranteed way to make all Americans love soccer.

Not satisfied with the dart-launching pistol he whipped up last year, Joerg Sprave went back to the drawing board and came up with a dart-shooting sniper rifle that all but guarantees him domination at his local pub's dartboard.
