I grew up with nosy parker, no I don't mean literally... Or do I?

The homemade slingshot in the boy's pocket. I wonder how many kids in the West these days even know what it's for.

Both my boys had one. They make them so good today, you can use them with precision to even kill a bird in flight.
You can't use them anywhere because you could take some ones eye out or even kill someone if a rock hits the temple.
But to go to the lake or ocean , they are fun to see who can get a pebble further. If you get lost in the wilderness, knowing how to use one could provide you with food you would otherwise not be able to get by trapping.
I guess they are like a bow and arrow. Like anything else, they don't hurt any one on their own.
Its people who do the damage.:)
