Is this contraption sports? Saving the world by building a greener future is undeniably a good thing but only perhaps sports; being bold enough to release whatever the hell design you cook up knowing full well that it’ll get shredded is likewise good but missing a certain sportsiness.

Difficulty: N/A
Competitiveness: N/A
Overall: Incomplete

No, it does not help. But … what if we throw rocks at it in order to demonstrate its unbreakable glass windows?

Now we’re getting closer. Throwing rocks at cars is enough of a sport that Astros clubhouse attendants watching this video started searching for trash can lids to bang against the wall. But we’re still not quite there yet.

But I know the answer. Dunks. Dunks will make this a sport. Take it away, Internet:

Feel free to make this even more sports by adding dunks of your own!
