RE: [medievalsawdust] Digest Number 298
- I caught most of it before I had to leave and had the wife tape the rest,
though I am not sure when I will have the chance to view the tape...
All in all what I saw was pretty cool.
Hey.. cool... did anybody else catch the episode of "Mythbusters" on The
Discovery Channel where they build a "log canon"... the sucker worked
darned well on 8 oz. of powder and a carved stone ball... looks like it
would have been very effective (the concept of a wood canon was based on an
early period story about all of the villagers being killed when a log
cannon they build to defend their village blew up...)... and YA' KNOW...
5 lbs. of powder and plugged barrel... even the iron bands wouldn't hold
it together... cool explosion... glad I wasn't there...
