#382: Trebuchet


[[A man is working on something on a table, and a woman is sitting at a computer]]

Man: The trebuchet is almost done!

Woman: Mm.

Man: The range should be over 150 meters.

Girl: Look - I’m sure it’s a cool project.

Girl: But eventually you’ll need to outgrow these toys, and focus your energy on something practical. This mad science is getting out of hand.

Man: Says the girl who mounted an auto-targeting kilowatt laser on the roof.

Girl: That’s practical! It keeps the squirrels off the feeder!
