Sometimes I forget what a bunch of weirdos you all are. When I mentioned human cannonballs on facebook yesterday, that wasn’t a euphemism.

Mario, the last of the original Zacchini Brothers, passed away in 1999.

My (admittedly short) search didn’t turn up any evidence that this project was completed.
