The Archery of the Office

Introduction: The Archery of the Office

With a few household items, you will have a bow and arrow shooting projectiles at extream speeds!

Step 1: Gather the Materials

To make this super sweet office weapon, you'll need:

2 rulers
1 rubber band
Scissors or something to break the rubber band with.
Duct Tape

Step 2: Make the Bow

Place the two rulers on top of each other at a 130 degree angle (or around there) and duct tape 'em together.

Step 3: Add the Bowstring

Cut the rubber band and tape each side to the ends of the bow. Congrats! Now you got a nice bow! Now you need some arrows...

Step 4: Make the Ammo

Take a paperclip and straighten it out. Bend out a hook at the end. Make a whole lot of 'em and siege war!

Step 5: Using It Without Hurting Yourself

Ok ok... This might sound dumb to you but you NEED to hold the vertex of the bow pointing outwards. If you hold it normally, the paperclip with collide with your hand giving yourself a welt. Ow. FYI: The picture is just to show you how you should hold it. You don't need to keep it on a surface when firing.

    well, really, a standard bows power comes from the wood(or whatever its made of) you could string one with a steel chain and shoot 200 feet( my personal record)

    Apparently? I don't remember typing that. I think my brother may have found my password and screwed with a bunch of stuff.

    no, just show your (or rather my) superior firepower until they give up.
    that works with me every time.

    A good idea also is to use a boomerang. They work really well.

    I liked the idea, but using protractors works better because you can hold it better. it also hits myhand when I shoot it and it hurts.

    thats impossible to shoot out of a nailgun thers a difference between a nail and a toothpick the toothpick would probably break in half if u tried to shoot it but im not sure..i'll try it

    even if you got the toothpick to fit, it dosent have enough mass or the right shape to sustain flight for verry long, and if it did it would tumble through the air slowing it substantially. point is, i dont think it will cause much damage, better off shooting a roundish rock
