of course tho the pvc would need to be thick, same with the track it would be on and the rubber sealent.

I have to give you credit. Any time invested in creating something that will heave a basketball hundreds of yards is well spent. You do realize that you are probably breaking some kind of U.N. agreement on intercontinental weapons right? HEHEHEHE.

in the upcoming presidential election, there will be several candidates who will be running, one of whom is Hillary Clinton. Now WAIT A SECOND!!! I though there was some sort of rule that prevented someone from serving more than two terms in office. Vote Against Hillary: Presidential Elections 08
