Hard to say where it is. I've been to Verdun and this is basically what the entire part of the front looks like there.

As are all things on earth? Yes, all things. If you want to be picky then try to not screw up like that. Earth, rock, water, air, salt. Very nich carbon. And a PVC bow is a plastic bow. Congratulations, you read the sentence I wrote. The point I was making was that calling a bow "plastic" is really unspecific since there's thousands of variants of plastic. If you buy a fiberglass bow it doesn't say "plastic bow" it says "fiberglass". Plastic makes it sound like you mean a PVC toy. Just like you don't call body armor a piece of carbon since that makes it sound like you're walking around with coal on you chest. You say kevlar. I understand that you are trolling but you're really bad at it and making arguments.

I know it's a plastic, but just saying "plastic bow" is like saying it's made form PVC, which it's not. That's like saying "that body armor is obvisouly carbon" which in a way is true, but in another way completely wrong (talking about kevlar). A plastic bow is a toy, fiberglass bow is a proper bow. If you're gonna have a superiority complex over bows then you should obviously know that. It's also nice to see how low of an individual you are for blatantly calling me ignorant. You must have some serious issues and I recommend you either get help or take them out in a more productive way.

There was a target, actually. Also I don't see what his outfit has to do with this. It seems to me that you just want to shit on everything because you're either mad, hurt, or have a superiority complex. Besides it's not just a "plastic bow", it's a properly made fiberglass recurve bow. You do know that bows don't have to be wood, right?

It's supposed to be a fun thing, not proper archery. There's NO reason whatsoever for you to hate so much on this. It's Funsubstance, if you want to see real archery go to YouTube. Didn't know archers were so toxic.

Actually that type of design was very common both during WW1 and WW2. Those are special grenades made to be fired from barrels. It's basically just a smaller version of a mortar.

It's because of our atmosphere and the fact that there's physical cintact between two materials that are moving along each other. If you take the joint where the arm bends you can think of that as two pieces of sandpaper (exaggeration) that are sliding along each other. As we know, if you do that you'll get a resistance that works against you. If you enter a set ammount of energy, in this case the weight that's added, that energy will slowly deteriorate because it takes energy to slide sandpaper against sandpaper. Now you could smoothen out the sandpaper or switch it to another material that's smoother or you could add lubrication like oil to make it easier for the sandpapers to slide over each other. However it will always require a small amount of energy to move those two surfaces against each other which will cause the machine to gradually slow down. Friction and thermodynamics. Sorry for long answer, I'm not the best at explaining.

This is really cool, but sadly not perpetual. Aince nothing is truly frictionless the joints in the arm will absorb some of the energy every loop and the mechanism will gradually slow down.

I took that too and had the same symptoms, although I didn't consider my dreams nightmares, but I'm pretty sure anyone else would have
