    hurtling towards me like a hairy meteorite.

    Sounds like Ladies Night at my local… 😯

    Don’t know what your problem is, I’ve twung flaming hay bales through the air all my life, and never seen anyone injured.

    I was pootling along the canal towpath on my commute home last night – it’d be about quarter past five – when I was startled by a thwack / woosh sound coming from behind. I stopped and looked and couldn’t believe what I saw. Tumbling through the air, with a parabolic trajectory, a flaming bale of hay was hurtling towards me like a hairy meteorite. I quickly dismounted and dived into some undergrowth as the bale splashed and sizzled into the water just yards away. Phew what a lucky escape.

    I called the police on my mobile and the operator said “So, no harm done then hay.”

    Bloody scandalous.

    I’ve been hit by a flaming hay bale before and it certainly wasn’t hot enough to puncture the skin so I wouldn’t worry.

    Trebuchet’s are easy, I looked on Al Jazeera once, and now every time I go out I hear these funny droning noises and random explosions keep going off all around me.. 🙁

    I’ve been firing flaming hay bales since I was 11, even got as far as competing at local legion level, and never once saw someone injured by one. Occasional we had a singed tunic, but that was about it.

    Unlike most on here i HAVE actually shot someone with a trebuchet 🙂

    doing a show at Barnard Castle, we were the assault force and camped in the outer bailey, the defenders were inside the castle proper behind a 70ft ditch and good walls.
    Went to the pub on the Saturday night, came back around midnight pretty steaming, someone thought loading the trebuchet with water balloons was a good idea..

    Picture the scene, the Clarence Household sat around a roaring fire drinking heavily – when silently, out of the night sky drops a perfect shot..

    ..right into the fire 😀
