87) when you hear the term "baeleric", you instantly think of slings.

88) you know and have tried most every style of slinging.

89) You work with the sling and style for the reason of "it works for me".

90) you have expiemented with super long and super short slings.

91) you have made slings out of improvised items (belt, plastic bag, bandana, gauze wrap, etc.) just to see if it would work.

92) You envision yourself, a few years from now, holding off the zombie hord with a couple dozen rocks, sling in one hand, and an M4 (katana, war club, M249, 1911, gurkha kukri, AA12, etc.) in the other.

93) you instantly recongnize a sling when ever you see it in a movie, and then rewind and critisize the actors terrible form, but are still happy the sling made it into a movie.

94) you have multiple slings in your Bug Out Bag

95) part of your "combat edc" is a sling.

96)  1 Samuel 17 is your favorite portion of the Bible.

97)  you really wish you saw the battle between David and Goliath.

104b) you have gotten really weird looks from people when you were setting "mud balls" out in the sun.

105) you have had any "Oh crap..." moment in your early slinging career and laugh about it today.

106) you have gone to a different country (Canada) and brought back a full 60lbd backpack full of perfect round dense rocks home.

Yes that is a true story, and I gathered all of those rocks on the first morning at Lake Supior, and that back pack which contained only a sweat shirt prior to that and now was around 60lbds, was my carry-on  Grin . 8 days later after carrying that backpack a couple hundred yards (from boat to cabin and back) and pushups with it on (competition between the guys) the seams started busting so I had to carry it by the bottom, but an 19 hour bus ride later I came home with the best souvenier ever!

107) you have used a sling as a "rifle sling" for easier transport of firearms.

109) You have gotten into heated discussions with museum personnel over whether a piece of ancient leather is a shoe tongue or a sling.

OK, that only happened once, can't we just leave it alone?

I also liked this one.  108 is good too.  Most of these are pretty good, in fact.

110) you know who Luis Pons Livermore is.

111) you have an offical dimension Baleric sling target in your back yard

112) you have used a sling (in addition to gauze, or in my case a large leaf) to wrap a wound.

113) you have debated slinging history with near 0 info and background on the actual issue.

114) you know the "World Record" for slinging distance and you know who Larry Bray is.

115) You want a Balearic sling target, and don't have one yet.
116) You tend to forget that the term "Balearic" is one that not everyone knows.
117) You hate deadliest warrior, or at least consider it worthy of mockery and derision.

Grin I was talking about history and weapons with an anthropologist and they asked me if I like Deadliest Warrior. Its historical accuracy is a running gag with them, too.

Massi - WTF? It's called a sling. You use it to throw rocks farther and faster than you could otherwise. That's all.
