You've made hundreds of slings and still want to make more, or indeed have to because you've given them all away to anyone whose showed even the slightest interest in slinging...

... if you know what "blunt force trauma" and a "depressed skull fracture" is.
... if you have experience involuntary movement of the arm when entering the early stage of sleep.
... if you have callouses on your braiding fingers.

118).....you have a standing agreement with every scrap yard in town that allows you to cut seatbelt material out of cars they are about to dispose of free of charge as long as you keep them in seatbelt slings

119).....you have learned the word "sling" in a couple of different languages just in case someone happened upon you slinging and wanted to know what it was.....and used it in a sentence

Yeah, pretty much. I think this explains the braiding skills phenomenon mentioned earlier.

On a shore with gazillions of perfectly round stones, you seriously consider creating a new island from all the stones you've slung into the sea. Smiley

My GF learned this lesson when we were out for a walk and I found the perfect rock to sling and "happened" to have my sling handy. Missed her by maybe a foot or two.... and I thought she was in my safe zone....

You forget your sling at home, and despite not actually planning to go slinging at all you feel somehow unprepared for the day.
