HowTo: Make a Giant Slingshot That WON'T Boomerang Back and Smash Your Face

It's humiliating enough to appear on a prime time reality TV show, but to be smashed in the face with a watermelon, hurtled from a giant slingshot... Poor, poor Claire Champlain.

Claire, a contest on CBS show The Amazing Race, was challenged to shoot watermelons at suits of armor in a recent episode. Sounds somewhat simple. Until the watermelon boomeranged back, meeting total obliteration ON HER HEAD. Claire's response in the aftermath: "I can't feel my face, I have the worst headache ever." Yeah. I'll bet.

View the catastrophe below (starts at 0:20). And if you dare... make your own giant trebuchet.
