Luckily, Tim has not done this - or had it done to him.
Long ago - 1981 - when I was working my last year in the Caribbean, half my teaching schedule was "gym". Pretty neat living in Cayman and wearing gym togs to work!
Anyway, on "Field Day" toward the end of the school year I was cleaning up the javelin field and a student (accidentally?) let fly. Somebody yelled, and I could see the shadow of the javelin moving across the ground. It missed me by about 12 feet. Still have a vivid memory ...
