    what proof? that it can beat down a cyborg dinosaur? I forget?

    no it was that a polar could kill a t-rex (or something like that)

    tim said it would have to be a cyborg bear to win

    nononooo!

    I said I bet you saw it on one of those retarded american "science" channels where they get engineers to build cyborg "models" of the creatures that could NEVER have met and get them to "fight" in the studio.

    "Well Don... As you can see... M.I.T university's T Rex... enthusiastically made of plasticine and jam has fallen over... so clearly the robotic half a grizzly bear our FX dept made at lunchtime could have totally knacked the T Rex, despite the fact a T rex is 40 times heavier and can fit the bear in it's mouth in one go and use it as a fuzzy toothpick... after the break... *MASSIVE DRUMS*... when the legendary unicorn is cornered in a forest by a German Panzer Tank... WHO would be victorious? our unqualified nitwits will FIGHT this imaginary battle for you right here in our studio... using time travelling CGI technology and dramatic music...."

    It's nothing less than a prototype (and highly tested) form of propulsion based on centrifugal motion that may one day propel us to the stars... the basis of the every elusive holy grail of science since the dawn of time... the perpetual motion engine.

    Shocked

    I thought it was a mere gimbal or a rotating joint.

    Those sneaking French knew a thing or two about siege engines.

    The trebuchet made a real mess of the walls of Jerusalem amongst many other 'impregnable' fortresses.

    Particularly nasty when used in conjunction with greek fire.

    I do believe the Roman's took credit for the Ballista but in fact it's a Greek design.

    I am defeated. My walls are rubble, my maidens ravaged and my reputation in tatters. I'll keep you posted about the state of crops and churches when news comes in.
