I seem to get basically the same reactions when the subjects of slingshots and kids spending too much time on the internet. A lot of people seem to bring the negative thoughts on both slingshots and the internet. As with anything, these two subjects can be misused for negative actions, but when used properly, they both contain a wealth of knowledge. The benefits of shooting slingshots range from creating new designs of slingshots to learning different types of material. My favorites from shooting slingshots is, learning respect, and good sportsmanship. Without the internet, where would this Forum and all its amazing members be. I totally understand both of these subjects can be used for negative things, but when Mentors use these tools to help young people take full advantage of all the positive things, they have an endless learning experience.
