Trebuchets are cool, but I prefer the big ass cannons.  They also have catapults, centrifuge-like machines, and human-powered stuff. 

A trebuchets I think drops a weight and has the thing to be thrown on a whip that uses centrifugal force to throw the object.  I think these go back to either roman or greek siege machines.  Big risk with a Trebuchet is when the load fires backwards instead of forwards.



I enjoy watching this "stuff".    I think Discovery does a show on the "Pumpkin Chunkin' ".
