Robert Deignan: The Man, The Legend

It takes quite a while for an individual to become a legend. Unless he or she is exceptional at what they do. A piece of advice that our current President and extremely successful businessman, Donald Trump gives is to be on the winning team. Stick with those that win and you will win. For this reason, is it self evident through his actions and the numbers (which don’t lie) that Robert Deignan is a winner.

Robert Deignan is the kind of guy that takes quotes from people like Elon Musk and Steve Jobs to heart. He obtains the knowledge of the greats in the business world and then applies them to his own life and to his own business ventures. Knowledge is sometimes mistaken as intelligence, but intelligence is actually the application of knowledge. And that is what Robert Deignan does flawlessly. He is humble enough to admit that he is not at the level as people like Elon, but that also is one of the reasons for his success.

Maybe wisdom and humility are not prerequisites for becoming successful, but they are definitely common traits among those who become wealthy doing what they love. They also seem to be the ones that have the capability to maintain their wealth. Robert Deignan is on the continuous and steady, yet highly effective progression of his own lucrative business.

Robert Deignan’s success did not happen overnight and it most definitely did not happen easily. Robert has always been a hard worker and persistent at following his dreams, fulfilling his desires, and accomplishing his goals. This is notable by the fact that he was not only a graduate of Purdue University, but also by making it to the professional football league. He even got to play for the Miami Dolphins and the NY Jets.

Mr. Deignan’s advice doesn’t come with a lot of bells and whistles. His effectiveness is due to his innate ability to listen to and follow his gut. Following your gut seems like simple advice, but even Roger goes on to state that it took him years to train himself to follow his gut after multiple lessons that he learned from not doing so the first time.

The Ancient War Machine: Trabuco

During the middle age era, they used Trabuco during the wartime. It used to crash down masonry walls and it could throw fire projectiles. This was during the enemy attack. The machine used to work similarly like a catapult. It was even referred to as balancing Trabuco so that it could be easy to distinguish from other weapons. Due to its popularity in Brazil, they referred to it as shotguns.

There was an arrival of a machine called counterweight blunderbuss. People believed that it originated from countries that were residing near the Mediterranean where most of the people were Christian and other Muslims according to It was a dangerous machine because it could even launch a projectile that weighed 140 kilos at a high speed where it was even landing 800 meters away. The best thing about the machine was that it used to have a relative accuracy to the target. In some history, trabuco is indicated to have helped fight the biological warfare. This is where it was used to projectile dead bodies which had diseases that were deadly to their war opponents so that they could be infected.


China is the country that was believed to have invented the Trabuco war machine. In around 400 BC, is the time the machine was invented in China but took a long time before European countries could receive it. It was around 600AD when the first time Trabuco war machine was received in Europe. It came to the abandonment of the machine later as technology improved and there was the emergence of gunpowder.

The machine, being a scientific invention has its principles of operation. In the machine, it uses gravitational potential energy where it is converted to form kinetic energy. The mechanism of the potential energy comes from the sling according to During the converting time, some of the potential energy is not formed to kinetic and therefore it will be forced to dissipate forming a friction as a way of losing the energy. It has a counterweight that helps in projecting which should be proportional to the projectile itself. If it is having the same weight, then it will launch a strong projectile.

In the present time, it is no longer a weapon again. It used as a fun where even the teachers are using to explain to the students as an example of basic mechanical principles. In the museum, it’s only one piece that is left there. It was very useful in the wartime and a good process of learning history.
