Just so everyone's aware: "Corn" in old English and even in some current usage refers to any grain. In the US, we refer to Maize as "Corn" while in Europe it was wheat for hundreds of years. Alternately, corn could also mean barley, rye, oats, or others.

https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/corn

In biblical terms, it could have been a number of things, but would certainly refer to the most common grain plant of the region involved.

I know that, but I do not believe RS does . If he did, why would he call the grain corn?

I tell ya... I believed it all until the corn part. Magical exploding slingstones and Jesus the Holy Noodler aside, it was the corn that broke this camel's back.

LOL I miss RS’s crazy stories. I still laugh that he had people trying to catch fish by slapping the water with a flat stone, but if I had to pick just one favorite, it’s definitely the Holy Noodler Grin

No way the turkey throw is the best , because I think it's actually a viable style with a lot of practice , the rest was pure Rs ,,rambling shit

The Turkey throw is legit. I've tried it out a few times but you need the right length sling to maximise the efficiency of it.

So I guess that's why it's sort of a shame it turned out the way it did. Trolling 101: don't get so wrapped up in the nonesense that you can't distinguish the real from the BS anymore. He went too deep too fast. There was no getting him back. Slingception.

It actually first came up in RS's intro post. Mersa made a video (because RS was entirely incapable of such a feat...).

A variation of Greek style?! No way! Greek is fairly simple to learn, but the turkey throw is a lost art which takes years to master. It is only preserved in RS’s personal library of ancient Phoenecian manuscripts that were passed down to him from the five great noodlers of the Illuminati. Four of them died to protect the secret, and it only made its way to RS from noodler #5 because RS knows this guy who met some kid who saw him pass out at Thirty One Flavors. Turkey style is pretty serious stuff  Wink

To be fair, it isn't any more difficult than Greek and, as was pointed out by RS, you can hold the position so you're ready to fire for as long as you want just by resting your arm on your shoulder. It's fairly powerful and accurate as a throw. It's the one useful thing we got from RS, don't ruin it! Cheesy
