Talking

A STRIKING EXAMPLE NO PUN INTENDED
I SUSPECT THEY ARE ALWAYS THROWN AS HARD AS POSSIBLE AND EITHER HORIZONTALLY FOR MAXIMUM CUTTING WIDTH PROBABLY AT CLOSE RANGE AND VERTICALLY FOR LONGER RANGE OR FOR GREATER ACCURACY CLOSE UP.
I WONDER WHAT KIND OF SOUND THEY MAKE AS THEY WHIZZ BY YOUR EARS? I HOPE I NEVER FIND OUT .
