Snowball fight? Those are for idle teens who have nothing better to do than to go windmilling around, awkwardly flinging globes of snow with little speed and even less accuracy. Snowball war, complete with its own customized slingshot arsenal? That's what I'm talking about.

It shouldn't surprise you that that's what our good buddy Joerg Sprave is talking about too. He's here to clear up any misconceptions you might have about slinging snow, and launch puffy white projectiles that boast serious speeds without threatening to take your shoulder out with them.

Is a slingshot necessary for your next snowball skirmish? Of course not. But is it pretty freaking rad? I've got a rubber band full of snow for anyone who says it's not. [The Slingshot Channel]
