Do you have any cardboard I could borrow? I've been inspired by a video I just found of a guy making a working sniper rifle using only cardboard and Popsicle sticks.

The Q shared this most excellent do-it-yourself video with the following explanation:

In today's video I want to show you how to build sniper rifle model from cardboard and popsicle sticks. Also, you need one rubber band :)

The thing functions, too. He fires pellets knocking over cans at the end of the video to prove it. I doubt you'll be able to take down any deer with this, but they might faint from being so impressed like I was.

This cardboard genius is the same dude that created a Formula One car out of cardboard and it only took 500 hours.

Wonder how much it would cost to have him make us some cardboard skis (with poles) so we can do some skiing at Hogadon? Can't hurt to ask.
