How to Throw an Arrow

I emailed this to a friend of mine earlier today and decided to make it a post. Last night I was reading from the book Primitive Technology: A Book of Earth skills, my wife was watching something girly on TV and I decided to step out in the garage and try what I was reading about.

how to throw an arrow really hard

To throw an arrow, take a piece of string 28" long and tie a granny knot 1/2" from one end. Wrap that end twice around the arrow about 16" from the tip (once if using a wetted leather thong), hitching it with the knot. Keeping tension on the string, wrap it several times around your index finger till its about 3" from the tip. Throw the arrow overhand like a baseball.
