Well I'm not a knife thrower, but I do have a 6' diameter sit n spin that could be repurposed for this.zcassidy wrote:I'm thinking about the "take a picture with your catch idea" and I wanted to flush a couple of things out. So, my question is "how can we make it work where it only takes two people to operate while keeping in mind budget."
A secure strap for the legs (around the shins) like a bungee jumper uses would be ideal. My father is a retired stunt coordinator so I might be able to acquire something like this.
What about raising the person up and suspending them?
First I thought of some kind of pulley system but that would require a counter balance of weight (sandbags or two people).
My next thought was to use one of those wheel boards where you strap in the persons legs while they are standing then you spin the wheel (ala price is right) until they are rested upside down.
I have yet to make a wheel board. Any knife throwers out there?

The challenge will be to get them to CALL ME when there's some good stuff to be had, before they dump it! :P
How about a semi-giant cephalopod surfacing from the playa at the end of the pier? Tentacles and what not made out of wire and EL to provide a ground install to threaten those "swimming" by?

I think that's always an issue with reuse. My guess is that a whole lot of reusable stuff gets thrown away because even with dump fees and gas, it's just plain cheaper to throw things away than to make a few phone calls and wait for someone to haul it away. Oh, and liability, of course.
Just my little political nugget for the evening.
