Reply to Sling Construction by ziq

Intro

The sling has been used as long as we have had the concept of tools. It probably predates the bow, but we can't be sure. Slings were a staple of soldiers and hunters the world over. Ammo was plentiful and slings were easier to make than bows.

Construction

All you need is:

  • Tape. Duct tape is fine, but medical tape works better.
  • Rope. 3mm Paracord is the best in my opinion, but anything somewhat strong will work.

Putting it together is quick and easy.

Usage

Disclaimer: Sling are weapons. A sling can deliver more stopping power than a .45 bullet.

Contrary to popular belief, swinging a sling around like a helicopter is a good way to hit everything but what you're aiming at. The power comes from a snap of the wrist, not spinning intensely.

Don't expect to become a sharpshooter overnight. Go to a beach with pebbles, as far from anything breakable (including people) as possible, and propel rocks into the ocean/lake/river.

Once you can sling without killing everyone around you, aim for floating logs or something. Don't aim for boulders, the rocks will bounce back at you.

The simple overhand release

Here is a video demonstrating this technique.

  1. Put the loop onto your middle finger.
  1. Hold the other knot between your thumb and forefinger.
  1. Place the ammo in the pouch, and hold it there with your left hand.
  1. Pull the sling tight between your hands, and hold it over your head
  1. Let go of the pouch and let it make a circular motion behind your back
  1. Snap your arm forwards and let go of the knot at the right time. Too late and it'll hit the ground next to you, too early and it will go straight up. It takes some practice to get the timing right.

Other styles

There are dozens of styles of slinging, all slightly different. This is the first one I learned, and the easiest in my opinion. Another easy one is the sidearm style. In this video they add an extra spin for more power, but you don't really need to.

Experiment with different styles and find which one suits you.

Slinging.org is THE best resource for all things slinging. The how-to section has tonnes of different types of slings, slinging styles, and even homemade bullets!

All the fights you see on this site actually stem from the bitter feud between The OC and Sabrina the Teenaged Witch fans when we rebranded. The OC diehards have never gotten over the rebrand and want to take the site back to its roots.

So who are these blockchain aficionados? Rich guys who want to avoid taxes I guess? But in their paranoia they're using a technology that actually ends up fucking them over?

All I did was try to understand what their needs were and make suggestions to be helpful and they sent me this heated pm:

Your profile says "You don't need to be ruled" and I'm assuming you're the leader of this community, yet you're another person fighting me so hard in deploying an instance.

Before you respond to that, understand this:

  1. Blockchain isn't bullshit. Its far away from what its supposed to be, but it isn't bullshit.
  2. The team running Bitcoin is. They're closely tied with Bitfinex & Tether, and that concerns me. Blockstream has built a lot of avenues for Tether to be laundered & hidden in TXs via 'Liquid'
  1. Blockchains like Bitcoin Cash also have serious problems. Their difficulty retargeting algo is fucking broken.

The issue is fixable. I want to bring academics in to this space #1. Also, I have a lot of information that needs to get out and this instance just distracts from that. Its too political. I don't mind it, but I don't have time to debate w people about anarchy. I don't care and its not my fight / battle.

I'm black. Last time I went to court, they threw me in jail despite me sitting through waiting for my name to be called and simply said I 'wasn't there'. I never fucked with the gov't to begin with so that's nothing special to me.

Cryptography is important though and so is blockchain. I know what I'm talking about and what I'm doing and I know what I will build.

Again, my Telegram has 25,000+ messages for a combined 1 million words. I started it December 2017. That means in less than 2 years I have published as many words in there as J.K. Rowling published in her entire Harry Potter series.

No, there was no help. And, yes, I did do this while simultaneously managing several other platforms.

I'm blessed. I don't question it & I certainly don't care who believes it. I type well over 170+ WPM and I'm fucking smart & I was in the same 'Gifted & Talented' program they threw Mark Zuckerberg and the other Harvard kids in when they were kids. I just had parents that beat me daily and hated me so I didn't get to go to the fancy camps like the rest of them.

I know what its like to be fucking broke and hungry. I know what its like to be incarcerated over dumb shit /shit you didn't do. What I am doing is leisure to me - always. But if you don't want to help me deploy an instance (purposefully), then know that the values you claim to stand on are extremely hollow and more than likely for sure or to beat your chest over the internet.

If all you want is to pay someone to install postmill to a VPS for you then say how much you're willing to pay and we'll see if someone will agree to do it for that price.

If you want to use the raddle name like you said then we would have to work something out.
