Subby how did you miss the Skyrim headline?

You should feel bad about yourself.

When I was a kid I got my hands on a cheapish bow and arrow set with which I used to enjoy launching arrows straight up into the sly, so that I could dodge them as they came down. One day the arrow veered off and landed in my neighbour's property. I clambered up through the trees to find it, only to see it sticking in the ground about 2 metres from my neighbour, who was lying on her back sunbathing and quite oblivious to the near miss. I strolled up, said hi, grabbed my arrow and set off quickly before she could process what had just happened.

I somehow got away with that, but it did stop me from engaging in that Darwinesque practice. csb.

Next time I shoot someone, I'm going to say I'm still "learning the basics of firearm-safety and marksmanship."

R.A.Danny: BarkingUnicorn: "Because of the maturity needed in both mind and body to handle a bow and arrow, Japanese culture tends to prevent teaching kyudo until the age of 15 or 16."

They didn't mention the age of the student in TFA, what are you trying to get at?

The contrast with American culture where a four year-old gets "My First Rifle," of course.
