It is all downhill from now. Sigh.

From the Journal Star:

Police say a man shot at his neighbor with a crossbow after they argued over the breed of a dog Saturday.
....

Police believe alcohol was a factor in the incident….

Gosh, you think so?

This story is fantastic. This might even top the story of one man throwing an ax at someone last week.

With the crime recently it’s like that Scheel’s robbery, only this time it was a bunch of nerds that robbed a Ren Fair.

Awesome. I’m waiting for people to get jousted.

@wish0922 - I’m sorry, but no story I read, for the rest of my life on Earth, will ever, ever, EVER top the raod rage with an ax story from last week. For one simple fact - that when the police got there he had thrown the ax, hit the guy, and moved on to a shovel.

That’s right, CP. I think I may have found the shovel part of the story to be even more hilarious than the ax throwing part, and that alone is tough to beat!

Here’s an interesting side story…I was at Celebrate Lincoln last Friday, and I was telling the ax throwing story to someone who was hanging out with my group of friends (I didn’t know her) while laughing hysterically. She responded by letting me know that the “ax heaver” was her father. She didn’t seem to think it was as funny as I did. I immediately stopped laughing and had to walked away. Talk about awkward…

That’s so hilarious. That poor daughter, her dad forever known in Lincoln as “The Axe Thrower.”

*NO WAY!!*

Oh my Lord in heaven - that twist in fate would make my head turn inside out!

Very cool! You should call the axe thrower “Gimli” from now on.

Anyway, good catch. I had forgotten about the axe throwing incident. This definitely signifies a “dangerous new trend” hitting the streets of Lincoln. Its been 8 long centuries, but medieval weaponry is FINALLY making a comeback. That’s just how we roll in the star city.

When throwing axes is outlawed, only outlaws will throw axes.
