im just curious to see what people think are the stupidest inventions mankinds ever come up with
my 2 personal favourites are as follows
1. mini flinging trebuchet
this was created on a TV program called Scrapheap Challenge. the teams were set the task of flinging minis as far as possible. one team, comprised of farmers with strong accents, built a trebuchet.
the arm collapsed and it destroyed itself in a spectacular way
2. Rocket powered barbecue
probably more dangerous than the trebuchet, the barbecue was built by richard hammond for a program called top ground gear force. they were tasked with doing up a garden and he built a barbecue with a rotissery made out of a V1 doodlebug engine.
this is the only picture i could find, but u can see the stupidity of it by the look on the guy on the rights face
