Are you snowed in? Why not turn to YouTube for practical advice on flinging snowballs using a slingshot?! It requires the right slingshot, and it's cold work, but it can be done.

In this video, Joerg Sprave demonstrates his snowball slingshot technique. It boils down to a BB-style slingshot equipped with a larger pouch, and a little flick of the wrist.

Sample line: "Large forks -- all they do is, they weaken the slingshot, because they put enormous strain on the wrist. ... What you need is a fairly large pouch."

Use your newfound powers for good, people.

If you enjoy slingshottery or Sprave's "heh-heh-heh" laugh, he has over 300 more slingshot videos. Some of them have to do with zombie protection.
