Sometimes in life the question “Why not?” is better suited than just “Why?” A huge slingshot used to catapult BASE jumpers into the air certainly qualifies under the first instance.
BASE jumpers Chris Douggs and Jimmy Pouchert teamed up with the local BASE jumping community in Dubai to build what is essentially a human slingshot. Tossing them over 300 feet into the air via some cranes and a lot of industrial strength rubber, they go from 0 to 124 mph in one second. That’s over six G’s of force exerted onto them.
Sure, why not!
