Interesting "stuff"

@40hz: I found that video of Anna Maltese's which debunks misleading claims made by one Lars Andersen was rather interesting, if only because it showed the propensity of fakers to make the most outlandish claims and still apparently expect not to get caught out. I didn't bother watching the Lars Andersen video.
Sorry I don't have time to write more, but I am about to go out with a torch tonight to look for those fairies that I have been told one can see in the shrubbery at the back of our apartment block. So amazing, eh?    :o

Being a casual sport archer, I found the following video by Anna Maltese (archery instructor, bow-maker, tournament competitor, fire archery practitioner) rebutting some of Lars ("fastest archer on the planet") Andersen's recent postulations rather interesting:-40hz (February 09, 2015, 08:50 AM)

The original video was pretty fun! (I watched that first.)

The rebuttal, not so much -- she's basically just heckling a magician (did you really believe that the magician's wand was exhumed from an ancient tomb in 1837 after...). Perhaps she should have read the original video's description. Buddy mentions some of the things she takes issue with in her rebuttal. Reading all of it, and applying the principle of charity (a lost art today that I have recently rediscovered from my extensive historical readings!!! :P ), it seems that Lars is aiming at producing entertainment much like street entertainers and magicians have been doing for ages (complete with lots of embellishments), and not a historical documentary. But, that was just my read on it Lars -- perhaps I should have taken him much more seriously? :P ;D
