Nice idea Martin,but can we afford the fuel?what about co2 emissions? perhaps it would be more eco friendly to put him in the thames water authority sludge boat,and dump him in the atlantic? whatever the method,lets do it quickly before he completely sells us out!  :fume

Kens working on it. A wood gas generator big enough to filled the rocket with gas. We can all start going door to door collecting wood - Im sure most people will feel generous ;D

How about a medieval trebuchet?  Carbon neutral and made entirely from readily available natural materials.

On occasion, disease-infected corpses were flung into cities in an attempt to infect the people under siege

I'm sure that there are loads of volunteers to help crank those winches.  whistle

Its either that or put him on roller skates and tie his "jock-strap" to one of the steam catapaults on the Ark Royal.

I can plaster but it's not pretty (and flat) like it should be. Welding, engine rebuilding, car mechanics, plumbing, electrics, tree surgery, roofing, pointing, floor-laying, kitchen-building, boiler-installing, gas-piping, soldering, knocking rooms together, caving, climbing, canyoning, canoeing, diving, windsurfing, mountaineering, skiing, snowboarding, rally-driving, electronics, progamming, truck-driving were all easy........


Hey wookey, have you tried this yet  :o.....
