Nice video, but why are they using this computer voice?
I find it highly distracting.

Quite brilliant. Another proof that the people who preceded us weren't idiots and knew a lot more than we give them credit for.

But Legolas must pick an arrow from the quiver.I think that's a fair disadvantage from his side.My oppinion.
PS:Legolas rules!

The narrator was that a computer voice or an actual person speaking? Impressive archery!

:O I'd like to see him do that with a compound bow.

#2 ~ I believe my source for this was in another language and it was translated then dubbed over with English... Sorry for the annoying voice >:)

What is not mentioned is volley firing. At the 69m range, his spread was more than a mans width, so his technique appears to be more for close targets and cavalry charges.

Of course. Back then, they had less help from modern equipment. They couldn't google stuff, they had to travel,
meet people, talk, and read books. We are the "dumb" ones, living in these days. Today, you can hardly find any 30 year old that has more than 2 professions (and i mean professional too, not just gone to school), while back then, you had to master a lot of stuff, to even survive. At the age of 30, a man was supposed to be able to take
care of the entire farm, feed all the mouth's, incl the elders. If you don't know your shit then, you're all screwed...

Is he shooting 3 feet from the kids head at the beginning ??? He might have learnt some basic safety first.... Never shoot an arrow with a man in front of you, no matter how good you are, ....head

Indeed #12. By its very nature, the interconnectedness of the modern world forces us to cooperate: no one person is capable of doing very much by him/herself. Take any object in your house and ask yourself if you could make that from scratch. Chances are you can't.

This looks impressive but even though I believe it, for some reason the fact that they used a text to speech program to narrate it, it makes it feel fake :P

#2 because he made this clip about himself. thats what all socially isolated freakys do when they want to get some attention.

awesome skills, but for sure not worth the training time :[

that bow has low power, shallower penetration, hence easier to comparing a pistol to a sniper rifle...>:)
