Boy scouts and other outdoor folks have made this curious device for many decades. They rubbed a stick over a larger notched stick to spin a twig nailed in the front. Ours uses dowels and a propeller. But what many do not know is while the notches are rubbed, the propeller can spin either direction without detection. Bystanders can ask yes questions (clockwise) or no questions (counterclockwise) for an answer and not know how the propeller knows. The secret technique comes with the plan.

Trebuchet Trivia. A trebuchet (pronounced treb-you-SHET) was a medieval device used to hurl large stones and other heavy projectiles at enemy fortifications. Using the mechanical advantage of a counterweight to rotate an arm, the device could heave objects up to 350 pounds at high speed and hundreds of feet. The projectile was placed into a sling that was pulled along the platform. When released, the sling and arm rapidly rotated to the vertical position, where one end of the sling came free, releasing the projectile. This trebuchet measures approximately 5 inches wide, 12 inches long, and 17.5 inches high with the arm at the top position.
