Your calling me a liar doesn't make it not so.
Nobody said anything about level ground or moon walking here. I honestly didn't even read your posts until now, just the first page. I'm not calling you a liar, just pointing out the liklihood of your being honest.
Here's why I would've been right to, though, had I...
Your balloon trick:
During description you talk about clipping the string with the first shot, then bursting the floating bubble with the second. Had you left it there, even, I'd consider it unbelievable until I saw it, however, you didn't. You then go on to note how easy it is to hit the balloon, due to its slower than commonly thought rise. Who, with half an ounce of comprehensive capabilities would consider that the hard part? A balloon is what, at least 6" broad when blown fully, and that's your standard balloon, the party type are a foot across. A staw of twine tied to it is, what, like 1/32 of an inch, generously? You completely bypass what would actually be the hard shot, giving the appearance of shrugging off what would actually prove to provide difficulty. Thus giving me all I needed to consider your claims akin in BSery to that of the OP.
