thats different yes:) i know how to do it with glitches, but i just don't really thinks is possible with no glitch or stretching.

idk how i came to it but
http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11756249 don't know if its be done, buts looks creepy

I don't know if I ever posted this but I made this design for the Punkin Chunkin contest last year. It seems to be really powerful and quite awesome looking http://fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11277898

Really? Whenever I have a life size image of jyo floating around in my head I have you at about 5'11", or about the height of my brother.
What you lack in height you made up for in fantastic contraption haha

I'm 5'6". I grew half an inch in two years--why, giant people? Why can't I be among you?!
I call Stunted Jyowth on this.

Anyways, just so this doesn't veer too incredibly off-topic, here's my pathetic contribution:
http://fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11717743
It's mostly a simple design (compared to Brian's customary, complicated but more powerful catapult). Note the shape formed by the small moving part of the pult-arm and the pivot point on the weight-drop--some variant of this 4-sided structure is present in almost any powerful catapult.

oh! Like that one design we collaborated on one time (but still haven't finished). Let me dig through my 1723 pages of designs to find it

ed: ^^that was a failure.
but here's the pult http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11767908
it's really clever for the awkward situation where you have to pult something the opposite direction as the weight is falling.

ed:
Bump/another advancement (bear with me, this is rather lengthy, but I think a breakthrough):

Okay so some of you may remember awhile back I figured out this thing I called the "rianmech" which was a one-way mechanism designed to make it easier to reuse weights and handle heavy loads

UNSUPPORTED BRIDGE:
Laying in bed last night I thought of a way to make a bridge that only requires beginning momentum, and stays up indefinately afterwords no matter how much weight is on the end. Came up with this: http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11401931
http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11401971 Here's how awesome it is.
without the mech http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11401985

Working on a way to do it with a double underbridge
http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11401958 Here. I demonstrated how rediculously sturdy it is by dropping two 20 piece weights on it.


Well I recently made this design:
http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11787414 which haas a rianmech in it, you just probably can't see it!

...found it yet...?

I began with the principle that the rectangle was going to need to be pushed up and then stopped, then restarted again. So I came up with this stopping mechanism:
http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11789055
See the diamond quadrilateral with the chain inside? That's the rianmech.

After realizing that that couldn't be made to restart again, I ended up with something that works in the same way, but a little different:
http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11789057
this design is an improvement for the scenario because all I really need to do is remove the wood and it will restart again.

http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11787414 noooww do you see it?

Anyways; that's cool, but not what I wanted to show. I had a :doh: moment where I realized that a couple pieces really aren't necessary...all you need is some kind of brace!

http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11789061
so in this design, the wood pieces arent necessary.
http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11789062
this uses 2 less pieces and makes the chain longer (and more stable)

The real point of this post was to say that the diamon isn't needed anymore, you just need something to hold the joint once it gets past 180 degrees and it will be indefinately stable.

http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11789067 here's the update! and I know several of you have already figured it out, but I thought I'd share anyway :P

Okay so along with that ^^^ which most ignored (for good reason)

http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11797966
here's this. the first arm is stabilized by a rianmech, then the next two are stabilized by another mech, then the weight falls and unravels the last two arms while the rest of the extender is relatively stable. The only limit here is the strength of joints.

Here this solves

In response to this line I showboat the following extender from ken75's Great Extender Competition:
http://fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11783072
Notice the "rianmech" on the left side which braces against the static wall, although there are no chains in the diamond. This 4-piece bracing structure is technically the minimal design with rianmechiform characteristics.
