#HackHalloween (grumpy old man style)

Don't like trick-or-treaters showing up at your door? Put the smack down on those sugar-loving critters with some healthy celery- launched at them from a bit powered crossbow!!

Ok, so we don't celebrate Halloween but I was challenged on the LittleBits forums to "hack" Halloween and thought we'd have some fun with that. 

Admittedly, the crossbow DID NOT successfully fire the celery. I had to use some camera trickery to replicate the desired results. However, the device concept works like a charm. 

NOTE: DO NOT attempt this with actual weapons. Use only celery of the non-lethal kind. No fictional intergalactic agents were harmed in the making of this video.
