All resemblance to persons, people, friends, relatives, quotes, cultures, artificial intelligences, inside jokes, pets, unclaimed personalities, sentient objects, extra-terrestrials, inter-terrestrials, and draperies living, dead, undead, or comatose in any of my work are purely coincidental, incidental, circumstantial, inadvertent, unplanned, unforeseen, and unintentional. There's seriously no way I was referring to you. Honest.

The story so far:
Birthright: Eleventh chapter pending. 28280 words.
Heritage: First chapter drafted.
Legacy: Character and plot development stage.

No, he really didn't. I watched a youtube video testing a short sling and Roman sling bullet with a ballistic gel cube and it was brutal. The thing (in different tests) went several inches deep into the ballistic gel, punched through plywood, got wedged into multiple layers of plywood, and generally caused a significant amount of damage.

I'm surprised Goliath survived the first strike at all.

That and I no longer understand why songs and stories refer to David using "only a sling" to defeat Goliath. That was the equivalent of an assault rifle.
