They call you the human cannonball. Your act involves flying through rings of fire, bouncing through a trampoline course, and catching the trapezist in the grand finale. Today’s pre-flight test fails dramatically, and upon inspection, your cannon has clearly been sabotaged. Unfortunately, it’s too late to abort the launch. Can you fix it in time to catch the trapezist? Alex Rosenthal shows how.
Lesson by Alex Rosenthal, directed by Igor Coric, Artrake Studio.
This riddle is adapted from a puzzle that appears in Boris A. Kordemsky's The Moscow Puzzles
