A few weeks ago, a German TV team ( http://www.tapefilm.com ) made a piece about me. The challenge: To build a plunger shooting slingshot! It will be aired next month, in a German science magazine called "Galileo". They will do a whole episode about plungers, and I am a part of that one.
The guys are great, we had a good time to say the least. They wanted to do a fun trailer, much like Robert Rodriguez's "Machete" with the great Danny Trejo as the protagonist. It came out great. Best is: They allowed me to upload the trailer to my channel, even put in English subtitles for me!
Here it is:
My wife says my bearing is more upright and I drive faster ever since I saw the piece... :)

That is funnier than hell! I think they just found a new leading man for "Machete II". I definitely want to see the episode where you unveil your latest creation.

I think it's just hilarious that of all the things you've shot it's a plunger that makes it to the silver screen.

I never realized Joerg was a part of this forum - that's great!
I have an ol' Dankung Axe slingshot, love it. Take it camping with me every time I go, keeps the gal & myself occupied shooting placed targets everywhere.

Also known as a Retractable Forearm Dagger, Xiphoid is a class of weapons with a blade that is retractable into a forearm worn wristband/bracer sheath. Designed for swift and quick surprise attacks. It is notable for being evolved from the Katar and the Pata, punching swords with the blade sitting inline with the users fist..
There's two kinds of people in this world when you boil it all down.
You've got your 'talkers' and you've got your 'doers'.
Most people are just talkers, all they got is talk. But when all is said and done, it's the doers who change this world. And when they do that, they change us. And thats why we never forget them...
So which one are you? Do you just talk about it or do you stand up and do something about it? Because believe you me, all the rest of it is just bullshit.
