    Or the homemade rubber band guns made with sliced up tire inner-tubes.

    Or "wrist rockets" (slingshots) made with surgical tubing and marbles for ammo.

    You make a polish cannon like this:

    Get three soda cans. Two of them you cut off the tops and bottoms so you have a pair of cylinders. The third one, you poke a small hole on the side, about 1/4" above the bottom of the can.

    Get duct tape and connect all three cans together, with the can that has the small hole as being the "bottom".

    Get a tennis ball and stuff it down the top. You may need a little oil to lube the insides of the can.

    Put a little lighter fluid into the bottom can through the small hole, and shake it up a little.

    Aim the cannon assembly like a mortar. High angle, low angle.... don't matter.

    Put a match to the hole and watch the tennis ball go shooting out.
