New Palestinian Slinging Video
Dec 12th, 2021 at 12:58am
 
A friend of mine who knew I sling sent me this video of Palestinians slinging tear gas canisters. Pretty interesting seeing the sling's use there in modern times. Also includes a Pirouette figure-8 style you don't see too often.

I was pretty good at slinging like 10 years ago.

First of all those guys are champs for slinging those canisters with the gas coming out. Those masks must be for fashion because I know they aren't stopping the gas at all. The one slinging with that huge shield had it down pretty well. He didnt seem to have any issues. Good find!

   They have pretty good form.  You can build up a resistance to tear gas.  When I took basic training in 1975 the army must have had a surplus of tear gas.  Our Drill Sergeants gassed us almost every day, often several times a day.  At first we'd holler GAS!! as were were taught to so everyone would mask up.  After a few weeks we just ignored it most of the time.

German curse words?   How did this get past the sophisticated language analysis algorithms running on the slinging.org server?!

...and yes. The only time we ever seem to see Palestinian slingers is when they are protesting.  Definitely propaganda, but an interesting slinging style anyway. I don't think accuracy is the main objective for that slinger.

Not a serious curse word. It just signalises that he has a very negative opinion about it

Dusts off the politics banhammer  Cool

(I would rather rather eat hammered dog turds than ban someone for a non offensive political post but the above comment lets me use the little sunglasses emoji and makes me feel like I belong in a Clint Eastwood movie. Ive got nothing, give me this one guys )

Das man über Propaganda Scheiße diskutieren muß? Ich verstehe das nicht. Oh die schleudern aber toll. Hab ich noch nie gesehen. Ja prima. Dann haben sie noch nicht viel gesehen übers schleudern. Toll aufgetürmte Autoreifen und diese dann Effektvoll angezündet. Heroisch, heldenhaft, stupide. Und sie sind immun gegen Gasgranaten. Am besten noch einen alten zerlumpten Mann ohne Beine im Rollstuhl vor einer selbst angezündeten Kulisse. Oh man. Werbung für Behinderten Sport ala Palästina oder was?
Genau solche Bilder braucht die Slinger Fan Gemeinde. Tausendfach geteilter Schwachsinn heroisch kämpfender Vaterlands Patrioten.
Ja. Ich habe eine sehr negative Meinung dazu.
Ich lehne es ab. Verstoße ich mit dieser Meinung gegen irgendwelche Richtlinien des Forums?  Verletze ich damit ehrhafte slinger Tugenden? Wenn ja bitte ich um Löschung meines Profils und meiner gesamten Beiträge. Smiley Tongue  Cool

That propaganda poopy has to be discussed? I do not understand that. Oh, but they spin great. I've never seen that. Great. Then they haven't seen much about the hurling. Car tires piled up great and then lit effectively. Heroic, heroic, stupid. And they're immune to gas grenades. The best is an old, ragged man with no legs in a wheelchair in front of a self-kindled backdrop. Oh man. Advertising for disabled sports ala Palestine or what?
This is exactly what the Slinger fan community needs. Thousands of shared nonsense of heroically fighting patriots patriots.
Yes. I have a very negative opinion about it.
I refuse. Do I violate any forum guidelines by posting this opinion? Do I violate honest slinger virtues? If so, please delete my profile and all of my posts.
Smiley tongue


Its hard to translate jokes sometimes Jaegoor, especially our humor, but mine was definitely a joke. And no I would be the last person in the world to want to ban what you said. Also I am modifying your post to have a sunglasses emoji. These sunglasses are scientifically proven to block 75% more propaganda than other brands.

The tear gas actually very conveniently allows to follow the trajectory of the sling and the projectile. And yes, good form.
