    When I was a kid, my Mom said no way!
    You'll shoot your eye out, and little Jimmy fell over in his driveway on his mini bike, and died.

    Well, I'm now over 50, Last year I bought a BB gun, and today the wife is supposed to come home with a mini bike she found at tractor supply.
    I think for the chutzpah of it all, I'm gonna take a pic of me on my new mini bike and my BB gun, and send it to Ma!

    You can shoot your eye out, if you're able to aim the gun at your face.

    The other way it can happen is to shoot at hard metal surfaces at close range where the BB can ricochet back at your face with a lot of velocity (it's what happened to Ralphie in the Christmas story). Fortunately his glasses saved his eye. :eek:)

    Yeah, and Ralphie wasn't real bright either.

    Sometimes there are people including me who think I'm not as bright as I once was.
    How do I kill myself on a 24 MPH mini bike in my own driveway?

    Africa - near the equator
    Maybe piano wire - kinda neck height and give the bike the full beans? Just remember, if you don't succeed, try, try again.
