Eccentric Genius: Ballista
The Greco-Roman Cruise Missile.: " Originally about 15 feet high, able to chuck javelin sized spears or big chunks of rock hundreds of yards with formidable accuracy, the original was one bad-assed monster crossbow.

This one's a lot smaller, but when fully torqued up capable of performance worthy of any serious weapons collection, and features a parallel universe inspired brass-bound laser sighting system.

Currently the most in-demand of the Eccentric Genius siege engine line, the ballista is powered by a pair of twisted cord skeins: The strength of the pull is fully adjustable from gentle lob to wood penetrating might: Likely not an appropriate gift for children or postal employees, but for anyone else a unique and beautiful heirloom quality gift."
