Luis pardon the confusion Sir, We understand that you were slinging at a very difficult target and that you succeded in hitting it. For that you are to be Congradulated.

What we are discussing is the interpretation of your slinging by the "experts" of the show. They started throwing around some very confusing numbers.

For the record your shot generated over 3 kilonewtons in a very small area, again a very impressive feat


Now for the spanish version of what I just posted.
Perdón de Luis el sir de la confusión, entendemos que usted lanzaba con una honda en una blanco muy difícil y que usted succeded en el golpe de ella. Para eso usted debe ser Congradulated. Qué estamos discutiendo es la interpretación de su lanzar con una honda por el " experts" de la demostración. Comenzaron a lanzar alrededor de algunos números muy confusos. A título de indicación su tiro generado sobre 3 kilonewtons en un área muy pequeña, otra vez una hazaña muy impresionante

I don't understand much of the things you are posting here, because the lenguage, I think you are saying that the test of the impact mesure is not corret? The people ho ware filiming ,as before somebody said had a principal idea from the beggining, and at the end we were having no more time because it was getting dark, and slinging to "Goliath" was flimed in abaut 10 min, and  all was russing up. You have said that it not possible the test of the impact? Im sorry if that is not like it has to be, i did as good I could.

Luis - the program you were involved with had good information; and you were very good in what you did.

There was a different History Channel program that also had David and Goliath.  It had some information about the weight of rock and hard it would hit that were not very accurate, and other information that was just silly and wrong.   We were comparing that bad information with the information on your show, and saying yours was much better. 

Merry Christmas!

I wont be playable on an European VCR or TV at all. The best way is to get it into a digital format and upload it somewhere private for Luis to download.

dunno about that the last 3 video recorders and tellys we've had have been ntsc compatible.
Going back about 15 years.
So there's a good chance he'll be able to watch it.
Failing that bung it over here and I'll transfer it to dvd.

Hey Luis,

I live in California. I might be able to travel to San Diego, because I could visit my family in Los Angeles along the way. It would be a great excuse to head south, but I have to see about my work schedule first. Let me know what days you were planning on being in california.

Luis,

That's great stuff. I can't fault your contribution to the program!

Some of the commentary around it was IMHO not as good as it might have been.

I'd like to see the evidence  about the materials used in the sling. It seemed to me one place they implied it was made from wool, and in another clearly indicated it was from hemp. There's some question whether hemp was even in that part of the world at the right time, and if the are implying a vegetable fiber it was more likely flax (linen).

Still, it's great to see a real slinger in action.

Congratulations again Luis.

I second that comment, nice work. How may shots did it take before you hit the target?

You only need two tools in life - wd-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the wd-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.&&&&Remember - You are unique.............just like everybody else.
