Reference Material


  • While the guys mention how bad it is for the PVC to be over-heated, they neglect to mention how dangerous the fumes that could result are. Don't overheat PVC!
  • Files are only designed to be used one way, despite Brian using it back and forth.
  • The top and bottom tip of the bow should have been bent away from the user to more efficiently utilize the potential energy of the bow.


At 24:20, Jason releases an arrow at the newly-introduced DAVE, who reflects the arrow back at Jason's hand that is holding the bow. It is only a superficial injury, but does manage to break the skin. The counter is reset at 21 days.
