For Every Action...

Newton's Third Law of Motion states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Latigo Flint has proven unequivocally that this law does not necessarily apply if said action is... A gunslinger type action.

Latigo Flint spent most of today wandering through a crowded shopping plaza. At random, Latigo Flint would give passers-by a hearty helping of intense, piercing Squinty-Eye. In every case the subject's eyes would fly open in shock and fear a much greater distance than Latigo Flint's had squinted.

But this discovery shouldn't come as too much of a surprise. Heck it wasn't that long ago those quantum scientists discovered the traditional laws of physics don't necessarily apply at the sub-atomic level. I expect it's just a matter of time before all our physics texts contain the pertinent Gunslinger Exceptions.

An astute scientific observation on your part, LF. Similarly, guns make SIZE a relative quantity: the bigger the gun, the bigger the man.

Did you know why the ancient Greeks had the Myths? They created them to explain things that were at the time unexplainable (the stars, women, etc.) so that they wouldn't get stuck trying to figure stuff out. It freed them up to continue research goals that were more attainable, until a time at which they could come up with the real explanations.

Latigo would have been the God of Twin Fires. He and Zeus would have been known to knock back Old Athens Ale from time to time in a seedy bar in the shadow of Mt. Olympus.
