Hard as a rock and they leave a mark (brown stain that has to wear off).

We called the tiny red ones, "Bastard Berries."  Great wrist-rocket fodder.
Don't call it the "Federal Government," that's an insult to the Founders.  It's a "National Government."
I will NOT comply.

Yeah, but get hit with a black walnut and the bruise will fade long before the stain wears off.

Fly tie some yarn on a household pin and use a blowgun... Or a peashooter, or disassembled Bic pen if you're in in math class  :laugh: Shot Kelly Anne in the ass, kinda by mistake, and got kicked out of school for 3 days.  :shrug:

No sense of humor, that principal...

I had a blowgun. Guy I bought it from sold it to me because he'd nailed a jerk he was working with in the hind cheek and sank the dart in a couple inches with just a puff.... He knew he'd want to do that again, so he sold the blowgun rather than just get fired over it.

Good thing I didn't know about those in grade school, that's all I can say.

That reminds me...I got that crossbow with a pistol grip.  It's an "Assault Crossbow."

Ever shot a deer with a crossbow bolt fired from a wrist rocket? That's some learning.

No. Now that'd be a worthwhile skill.

Refit it with surgical tubing and you can get a 45/50lb pull... More than enough...

I have some of those quad-tipped razor bolts.

Well to be fair, if you have a crossbow, that works way better.

Yes, but it's impressive, what a wrist-rocket can do.  I just did a quick look at Amazon, and there are some really tricked out models.  And .50 caliber ammo bags.

Mine is a stock rocket, modified with the surgical tubing, and a homemade modified fold-down whisker rest for crossbow bolts and fishing arrows... a nut on the front holds a PVC fishing spool...Other than that it's a 12 dollar rocket.

An important piece, that resides in my go-bag all the time. Pretty good with it... I can knock a grouse in the head more times than not... Barking a squirrel... not quite as well... But if I am ever caught out, that's the tool, rather than using up limited ammo.

Wisconsin man busted for selling weed told cops he ‘ingested’ his mom’s ashes
By Ben Feuerherd
January 17, 2020 | 2:25am

A Wisconsin man busted for selling weed and possessing other drugs told police he ingested his dead mother’s ashes, a report said Thursday.

Austin Schroeder, 26, allegedly sold drugs to undercover cops a number of times from November 2019 to January 2020 in Waukesha County, west of Milwaukee, a local Fox affiliate reported.

A drug task force executed a search warrant for his apartment on Jan. 10 and found glass pipes, MDMA, bongs and an “unknown powder,” according to the report. ...

He told cops he mixed his mother’s ashes with a variety of substances, “some of which he ultimately ingested,” according to the report. ... Full story at NY Post

Was that wrong?

Deaf man from Brooklyn sues Pornhub over lack of closed captioning
By Yaron Steinbuch
January 17, 2020 | 8:24am

A deaf man from Brooklyn is moaning that he can’t fully enjoy videos on Pornhub because they don’t provide closed captioning – so he has filed a class-action lawsuit alleging the site is in violation of federal law.

Yaroslav Suris claims the porn site has violated his and others’ rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act because the deaf and hearing-impaired can’t understand the audio portion of the skin flicks. ...

“We understand that Yaroslav Suris is suing Pornhub for claiming we’ve denied the deaf and hearing-impaired access to our videos,” Pornhub VP Corey Price told TMZ.

“While we do not generally comment on active lawsuits, we’d like to take this opportunity to point out that we do have a closed captions category,” he added.

Seriously? Closed captioning?

Yes, that really enhances the presentation, I'm sure.

Fine. Give them closed captioning, large print for the visually impaired. That should take up half the screen...and likely cover what they were there to see, anyway.
