If I had earned my siege engine patch from studying trebuchet mechanics (a hipster reference to The Doonkelberry Imperative - season 3 episode 43 of Phineas and Ferb) I should like to have such a device positioned discreetly in my castle's bailey (i.e. my back yard) and use it to launch things out over my fence. I would do this not so much to assault my enemies, but to rid myself of big or amusing objects that I no longer desire to possess. Things like an old lawn mower, some overly fragrant vegetation, leftovers that got pushed to the back of fridge for too long, overripe fruit, a broken exercise machine, excess body fat, some poorly conceived books from my personal library, and so many stupid things that I have done and said over the years. Once over the fence, I would be rid of them and their effects forever.
