unslung hero
Jul 3rd, 2011 at 2:43pm
 
a long time ago one of our ancestors thought "if I throw this rock at....I bet I can get girls.
Girls are impressed by rock throwing."

a long time later the cruse missile was invented, the girls are still not impressed.

since I am not allowed to build a cruse missile I thought throwing the rock might be just as much fun, and allot cheaper, and easier to explain.

Oi what you doing with a cruse missile on your balcony! you got a license for that?

They told me that if I became a flint knapper, chicks would really dig it.  They lied.  Bill

Yeah, I heard a country song about a guy who got a girl from "sittin' there, sellin' turnips out of a flatbed truck," That might get you some women... Grin

As luck would have it I found a big piece of scrap leather at work.
I could make a few sling pouches out of this.

The leather was to thin, it tore out at the edge where one ties the string threw the hole.

Find something else to use as a cord. Inner tubes are way too flexible to be functional, let alone reasonably safe.
