Trebuchet

So my brother walks into my room today and says, I need to make some kind of device to hurl an egg 15 feet. This was about at 3 PM, after running him through some questioning I determined that he currently had nothing, and that the project was due tomorrow. Initially he was trying to explain some kind of crazy idea about dropping a cinder block on a ladder in order to create a teeter-totter of death. My initial idea was to create a trebuchet, however he was extremely reluctant, so about an hour or so was wasting while I tried to convince him this was the best option. We had a big rubber band, just in case the trebuchet idea didnt work. The entire project took us about three hours to complete once we agreed what we were doing. In case you are wondering, the green box is what the egg is kept it. That box, and its innards prevent the egg from cracking on impact.
