This is why a border wall will never work. There will be thousands of gerry rigged trebuchets lining the border launching people across. It will be a massacre. Very messy.

Thousands?! Look at that thing! He had to cut down every tree for miles to build one trebuchet!

Thanks for the praise everyone!  And yeah, it's definitely difficult to find good local wood out here.  Admittedly, most of the machine is dimensional lumber special ordered from Home Depot which probably came from forests up North.  But the throwing arm is a local Spruce tree that I managed to nab for free from a private owner who cut it down off his lot in town.  Either way, it has been a TON of work to build this thing.

Also, new videos are up!  I'm posting on my YouTube Channel.  Here is the machine in full swing.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lYHppLiN0ms
