How about this ridiculous machine...?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread
I had this daft idea for a challenge: constructing a two part device/machine that can throw an egg over a house (or wall etc) and catch them safely. The team with the most unbroken eggs thrown and caught wins.
