What if I shot a Scotsman with a bow and arrow in York city walls?

    Either he followed through on his vow to leave the forum if Scotland voted to remain in the UK, or the result caused him to spontaneously combust, nobody knows for sure.

    Shot in the chest from 8-10 feet away. Presumably completely unarmoured. The result was a superficial wound that only required painkillers.

    Was the crossbow a kiddy's toy powered by a thin rubber band? Even a home-made crossbow made by someone who had no idea what they were doing and was blind drunk when they made it would be more dangerous than that. A serious crossbow will put a bolt through a car door at ten times that distance.

    Scottish on my mothers side and part Irish on my dads side. Also not relevant - lived in York for over 25 years
