    <font color="blue"><br><br>I apologize in advance to anyone offended by my story.<br><br>It was a freak accident, and no one was hurt at all, but rather acted that way.<br><br>Furthermore, I neither condone, nor advocate, ever firing a slingshot at any person ever.<br><br>I would never hide behind an almost silent weapon.<br>As I have other way more personal skills to settle any grudges, which I rarely have.<br><br>Living here in Thailand you cannot be judgemental, with all the bar girls, lady boys, and outright gays around.</font>

    No offense here. I thought it was pretty funny. I wouldn't do it, personally, because with my luck I'd have hit the dude in the eye and been sued. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7"> The guy probably went down just from the unexpected sting on his leg, kind of like you can make someone jump halfway out of a chair with a light touch if they aren't expecting it. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7">

    my probably best story is when i was sitting on my uncles waterfront with some friends, shooting out into the water.<br>so this guy comes along on a stand up paddle board across our firing line.<br>at the time i was firing anything i could get my hands on, and in this case it was a shell.<br>the guy was about 75-100m away, i shot at about 60 degrees up into the air with the shell (aiming nowhere near the guy) and because of the un-aerodynamic shape of the shell, it curved straight towards him and missed his head by about 3cm (we did not know this as the shell was not visible at that distance) all we could see was that he stopped.<br>then he starts paddling towards us and starts yelling at my uncle about how he was almost shot down by one of those kids and if he was hit he would of came and punched us in the face if he was hit.<br>i never intended to shoot anywhere near him but just my luck he almost got a nasty bruise on his bald head.<br><br>i think that that is my best story and that it could of ended a lot worse<br>
