Creating a least impactful biodegradable "cannon ball"

Greetings All,

A scouting group will be making a trebuchet for a project during a camp out - with the plan to shoot the trebuchet over the water (in this case an inlet along the Atlantic) - besides large rocks, what else would be environmentally safe to shoot towards the inlet? Ideas (for the scouts to build something) were "seed balls" - bird seed held together with some sort of fat - thinking more about it, not sure that is a good idea?

A Comic Walks into The Mariana Trench....

Hello -

I'm usually in the sub reddit /standup, for comedians, so excuse me, but this is how comedians' brains work....

So I'm screwing around on You Tube and come across David Attenboroughs doc on the Mariana Trench and stopped about 2 minutes in and came here. This was my first mistake, but from mistakes come good jokes later.

Attenborough says, "At two hundred meters there is barely any light left at all, but scientists have discovered that for life at these depths, and deeper, that's not a problem at all..." as a gigantic submerisble turns on its enormously powerful lamps to illuminate the darkest depths so scientists at the surface can see what's going on.

And I'm sitting here going, "Yeah, it wasn't a problem at all until we came along and BLINDED everthing down there with that light that had, for millions of years, been perfectly content with the lighting as it was."

Between what we litter outer space with, and now, the deepest depths of the ocean, I can't help but think that the 4% of DNA that separates the apes from humans must be the 4% dosage from the stupid container that God scooped into us.

He does work in mysterious ways.

We just spent a week on location filming turtle mating season, underwater wildlife and bustling coral reefs with our RED Komodo on Heron Island on The Great Barrier Reef as part of a documentary I’m working on. I hope you enjoy this 6K wildlife showreel produced from this section of our shoot!
