    Hey Joerg, I just had a thought - how about weaponizing chopsticks? In the movie "Kiss of the Dragon," Jet Li was able to kill an enemy by stabbing him in the neck with two chopsticks held in a fist. Maybe you can work something out Joerg-style?

    There are all sorts of chopsticks you can use - metal, plastic, wood (both lacquered and unlacquered), bamboo, short ones for kids, extra long ones for cooking, etc etc.

    Also, the disposable variety are super cheap. And while low-grade wooden ones break easily, if you buy the disposable bamboo ones they're actually quite sturdy.

    Chopsticks seem like they could be used for ammo if you could overcome the issue of tumbling through weighting or fletching. Maybe you could even fashion a makeshift frame out of them? Or maybe a different weapon altogether? The possibilities are endless.

    No one wants to be caught unarmed when the Chinese mafia attack the dim-sum restaurant you're dining at, or if the Yakuza strike when you're enjoying some sushi. And of course, east-asian countries will also be affected by the inevitable zombie outbreak, so those living there need an easy way to protect themselves.

    Anyways, just an idea for a future video. Keep the awesome videos coming!

    Cheers


    PS - Sorry if someone has already proposed this idea

    You know, that is a great idea. I shall experiment with it soon.

    Maybe the fletching can be made from the paper wrapping, or from the napkin...

    I am looking forward to this. I've experimented a bit with very short arrows but I think any viable design for a non crossbow type slingbow to shoot them effectively is going to call for pulleys to increase the effective length of rubber and I'm not very good at mechanical stuff.

    Otherwise with a bit of fletching and a broadhead they should be pretty effective. Some of the plastic/resin ones seem very strong and should be able to take a lot of force.

    Fortune cookies would make nice crunchy targets in a video like this:D

    Then we make up our own Slingshot related fortunes to put inside:

    Your bands will last long, You will find lost ammo today. The neighbors won't blame you when they find out where that flier went.....etc.:p

    Yep, even unsharpened bamboo or wooden chopsticks can be dangerous weapons, as demonstrated in the video:

    And if being specially weaponized...can't wait to see.:D

    Best part about chopsticks, is they could be either shooter or shootee so to speak.

    Roses?!

    If this was a wishing-well, i would ask Jörg to
    discover the lethal force of roses!!

    (as a fusion of the chopstick theme
    and the pantie-theme; maybe some
    beautiful zombie-lady deserves roses?-
    with a flame-forged point at the
    cutting-edge, the bloom functioning
    as fletching, a little hook bound to it
    just near the point so it can be fired
    with cupid´s crossbow of love?)

    If this was a wishing well...

    :)

    Greetings
