Episode Summary

Episode 1: The Rednecks experiment with the physics of slingshots and trebuchets, then rig a "Super-treb" with a pulley system and weather balloons... that looks more like a massive slingshot than a launch vehicle. Episode 2: Old sci-fi magazines once promised a Jetsons-style Hovercraft for everyone - but a redneck would prefer a "loungechair hovercraft."moreless
