    I seen that a member made Joerg a slingshot, and I see that many of the retailers send him them for review. Which got me thinking... <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_scratch.png" alt="scratch" longdesc="33"><br><br>I would like to thank him for all the cool videos , and perhaps inspire another.<br><br>I imagine many others would like to do the same, and what better way than to add another unique home made to his collection? <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_santa.png" alt="santa" longdesc="32"><br><br>Whose with me? slingshots from around the world for Joerg? <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cheers.png" alt="cheers" longdesc="28">

    It can't be that much.... anyways if you have time to make the slingshot, that is the same thing as money, and if you have to do some work around the house to gain the 20 dollars or so to ship it, it would be well worth the trouble in my opinion. You have like 2 months to come up with the necessary slingshot and cash lol, even working full time nights I will be able to do it in this time frame.<br><br><br><u>But it's up to you!</u> I consider it a worthwhile fee, considering all that Joerg does for slingshots <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1">

    This would be good publicity for the forum if a bunch of us send him slingshots for christmas and he makes a video about it <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1">

    Is it really a good idea to send the master of slingshots some selfmade SLINGSHOTS?!?<br>I also thought about writing him and sending him something, but more along the lines of 9/11 truth education, maybe the "WTC 9/11" DVD which i created (using videos from YT of course)... because i assume that Joerg still believes that "Muslims did 9/11". Or maybe something about the economy, because he's doing his PhD right now...

    Okay, I'll bite, who did it? BUT, don't answer here, start a new thread , don't hijack this thread for another subject. Title it "WTC911" and I'll read it.

    <span class="postbody"><br><br>LOL , this thought has crossed my mind much. So much so that I will not be sending him the one I created specifically for him, because the quality of it is in superior to another I created at the same time, so I must send him the BEST one I made, I figure he probably wont shoot it much, but that's not the point, the point is that he is the BEST, so deserves the BEST I can give.<br><br>The slingshot I have crafted for Joerg is a one of a kind object, carved down from a much larger branch in the fashion I learned from Joerg himself. Literally MANY hours went into shaping and polishing this creation until it became what it is today, a handsome looking very durable slingshot capable of firing with the heaviest bandset.<br><br>I am eager to see if anyone has joined me in crafting him a unique catapult though...anyone?<br><br><br>ps. 9/11 truth needs to be found on ones own time and under ones own motivation if you ask me. Something cooler to show Joerg if he hadn't seen it is the floating rock in the dome of the rock...</span>

    I'm sorry, but my slingshots would probably be too crappy to give them to anybody, let alone THE Joerg Sprave!
