More fun than the Holy Handgrenade of Antioch

A Trebuchet simulator.

Contests for distance, accuracy and power. Lots of background information too, so don't tell your kids that they'll be learning about physics while they play.

Thanks to the Ministry for the pointer.

Whelp. Just spend some time playing with that. Dang, it's adictive.

The thing is, I have no idea how those top scores were achieved. My best score was:

Distance: 650 (perfect)
Accuracy: 1250 (perfect)
Power: 1140 (don't know if can do much better)

for a total score of 3004.

But the last score on the list, #50, is over 4000! How in the world are those huge scores being achieved?!

I'm guessing it's the time bonus. The really big scores are probably guys who've figured out the perfect settings and have practiced their speed to set it up too.
