Alright, something fun to try out with the kiddo! (ETA - to be clear, for those that don’t know, she’s the archer. Her team has made state and nationals the last 2 years for the NASP program.)

Wait, what am I saying?

Seriously - uh - don’t try this a home. Yes this stunt can be done safely, but, uh, there is also a good margin for error.

I wish people wouldn’t do stunts like this.


I mean, it’s a win-win scenario. Either you pull it off and you get picked up on the internet, or you kill your ex-assistant and it gets picked up on the internet. Surely these are both good outcomes right?


You misunderstand. I wish people wouldn’t do this because I’m developing my own version of the stunt, and don’t enjoy the competition.
