Lawndarts and Survival of the Fittest

Ok, so, who out there remembers lawn darts, surely there are many people reading this older than my 23 years that can recall a good game of lawn darts, right? It was the great game of foot long steal spikes that looked like darts and you would throw across the yard at a target, or a person. In my view, what a grrreat game, but the government said, "NO! you can't have large steal spikes being hurled around through the air like a miniture game of global thermo nuclear war. People might get huuurt, some people aren't smart enough to use them properly and the misuse of such a game could result in serious injury." Yeah, well, ok? I say, if you get stabbed by a lawn dart and it causes serious injury or death, you probably shouldn't be reproducing anyway. Honestly, do deer or elk get to set up rules specifying that people can't use certain guns because they might inflict serious injury or death, "Sorry, hunters not allowed to use bolt action rifles anymore, all guns must be single shot muzzle loaded rifles for safety." NO?! (Note: this is not a PETA protest) What happens in the woods is who ever runs the fastest doesn't die. Survival of the fittest. Same thing applies here, I say throw a few more lawn darts out there and get rid of those people who can't figure out what to do at a 4-way stop, or drive 10 mph under the speed limit, swerving from lane to lane while talking on their cell phone. Now when I put it that way, lawn darts don't sound like such a bad thing do they? And to add to this, and not to bash the South, because I am from Oklahoma, but lawn darts aren't exactly a game played in London or New York City, so I think it would be safe to say that if you have ever received permanent injury from a game of lawn darts, you might be a redneck.

    I think this is a good idea for next 4th of July.

    And if we need more excitement, we could always throw over the pool at each other, that way you can't see it get thrown and you have less chance to get out of the way.

    Yes... this is a good idea. I will write it down now.
