    I love that guy. He has made some really cool stuff in the past! I hope that 20mm ball bearing was soft. :)

    Consensus on Liveleak was the "accident" at the end was staged.

    You don't need consensus on liveleak to know it was staged, he posted a "how I faked it" video on his you tube channel (i'm a subscriber, great channel). I had removed this previously so I didn't suck the wind out of jmichna's fun.

    A friend showed this to me this morning. I must admit that I thought that it was real.

    As I was watching it, I was thinking, "Now that's a serious slingshot. It'd be fun." Then at the end, I was thinking "Nah, maybe I don't want one."

    I'm glad to find out that it was faked, and the guy is O.K.
