    Anybody ever hear of Anvil Shooting?

    This was sent to me. I had never heard of Anvil Shooting before.

    Me...me... me, I...I.... I have. I was flipping channels on the Idiot Box and there was a program where they were shooting them into the air. I thought it looked like fun. I'm kinda used to lighting a Fuse and Running. Getting hit by a falling anvil could be serious. Nooo fatal.

    When I think of anvils, I think of cartoon characters getting hit by anvils.

    My father's real job is farming. He also does quite a bit of custom machinery fabrication for other farmers and dabbles in blacksmithing on the side. He attends several blacksmith events each year and I've been to one anvil shoot in PA.

    The amazing part to me was that the anvil was expected to go about 120' up and everyone was parked around the launch zone within 100' of the X. They used a full pound of powder under what looked to me to be about a 400# anvil.

    It is a regular part of the Jay Peanut Festival...my kids think it's a hoot. There's quite a concussion and you can feel that puppy hit the ground 100 yards away.
    (The wise men of modern thought) adore a god made of putty or of wax - plastic, effeminate, molluscous, with no masculine faculty about him, and no quality that entitles him to the respect of just and honest men, for a being who cannot be angry at wrongdoing is destitute of one of the essential virtues, and a moral Ruler who is not angry with the wicked, and who refuses to punish crime, is not divine. ---Spurgeon
