Pump Action Slingshot Crossbow

“Crazy Slingshot Guy” Joerg Sprave is at it again:

He has a lot of great ideas, which he executes very nicely.   I always wondered why he wasn’t making extra money off aesthetically refining the design, producing and selling these to the masses, but he answer that in the comments on the video:

YouTuber: Hey Joerg you should consider selling the ideas to companies so there are no lawers and taxes and such.

Joerg Sprave: No need for the companies to buy my ideas, I have given free designs to a number of manufacturers already and plan to continue that strategy. I am doing it just for the fun.

YouTuber: Even better, make money off your designs then donate it to charity.

Joerg Sprave: So your advise is to suffer through the miseries of running a business AND giving the money away? I fail to see where exactly the fun is in this concept. I do this for fun, not for money, and not for charity either.

Well maybe things are different in his country, but unless he’s fabulously wealthy from some other means I think he’s missing out on a great opportunity for some extra “play” money anyway.

Regardless of my opinion, you gotta respect the man who does something that looks so time consuming, then goes ahead and makes and edits videos for youtube to entertain us, just for the sport.

    That guy’s voice makes me feel better about the world

  2. Hopefully he is making a little through Google with his videos on their YouTube.

  3. I’ve seen his posts on a forum I frequent, apparently his company has a very strict contract that does not allow him to run any sort of side company or profitable enterprise.
