Trebuchets are Middle Ages weapons, similar to a catapult with longer range and more accuracy, that use the mechanical principle of leverage to propel a stone or other projectile at a given target.

So remove the stone and make the projectile a human and you have “Human Trebuchet“… and the scare of your life.

This segment on a Japanese television show demonstrates the “human trebuchet” in action.
