Do people actually get paid to huck heavy pieces of metal off of the top of John Swett Alternative Elementary School on McAllister at sunrise?
Heck, if they called me up, I’d do it for free, watching them triangles accelerate at 9.8 meters per second until the satisfying crash landing. Boooooonk!
This activity sounds like a pile driver. It’s enough to wake the entire neighborhood on a Saturday morning.
What do these things weigh, 20 pounds? Fire in the hole!
