This is a picture of a flying piano.

No, I don't see any wings... I'm pretty sure it's a piano.

Is that you, Cranberry?

I love that episode, too, LFR. I wouldn't mind being launched that way, when the time comes.

The piano further to the right looks like it's crowd surfing.

*bows to lonefrontranger*

That was one of my all-time favorite episodes of Northern Exposure, too.

And yeah, iconomy, her pictures are great... so unusual (not always THIS unusual, but still!) and great colors.

This thread makes me want to snorfle all over everyone. I *heart* trebuchets, and Northern Exposure, and flying pianos.

Why yes, that is a flying piano.

I'm not fussed over flying pianos, but I love trebuchets and (used to) love Northern Exposure.

While they title it "catapult", this add for Tooheys New is my current favourite.

Lets have a meetup to build a trebuchet. They're Very Easy to make - I made on in high school.

muddgirl, I'm so there.

y'all need to come to Boulder. seriously. it's right about in the middle of everything :)

I didn't see the trebuchet at first and thought... that's not a flying piano - THAT'S A FALLING PIANO! In any case, it looks like the crowd is underneath the piano's flight path, and that can't be safe.

no dano, that's not me, sorry. I am just another random weirdo who loves things that fling... and things that make loud noises, and stuff that goes fast and stuff that blows up, and things that are just too goddamn big and awesome to describe without a picture.

Ok, that reminds me of ANOTHER somewhat rational fear - GIANT SAWS DROPPING ON MY CAR AS I'M DRIVING.

Thanks, lfr.

There's always an upright or two under free stuff on Craigslist.

Holy CRAP, lonefrontranger- that picture is awesome, freaky, and scary all at once!!
posted by BoringPostcards 03 August | 23:11
Don't worry muddgirl, it's not a saw, it's an excavator. So you'll be fine.
