"Man Down" on Spring Mountain Road!

Sometime back in the nineties or so, I can hardly recall, I was in Vegas with my friends Ray and Bill (or was it Ray and Keith?) and someone told us we should go check out Industrial Boulevard. I guess we might have been looking for trouble - or perhaps just a way to burn some low-budget hours in this town, if there is such a thing. Anyway, sure enough, there they were - a whole strip of seedy-looking dive-bar strip joints. We walked near the front door of one of them but somehow couldn't bring ourselves to committing. So on and on we walked, until we decided that there was nothing spectacular here and it was time to turn back towards the Strip. I wanna say we were coming back to LVB along Spring Mountain Road or so, but wherever we were it was a dark and desolate area back then - gravel roads with poor lighting and such. I didn't notice it, but one of my friends started noticing how there was a flood of low-rider pickup trucks flocking around us yelling things - presumably local teens barking at the tourists. I think he was just about to explain that to me when suddenly *WHAM* - I heard this giant THUD and my friend Ray dropped to the ground, writhing in pain. After initial shock and awe, we stooped over to help him up. "Was I SHOT? What the hell WAS that" he said, while checking himself for damage. He looked over and next to him, lying on the ground, was a POTATO! He got hit with a POTATO! RIght in the chest, too - and Ray was walking in the middle of the three of us. Nice shot, I have to say - whoever lobbed that spud was quite the hitman. Ray was pissed enough that he was just randomly attacked, and perhaps even more so that he was injured so badly with something as ridiculous as a flying potato! Ray grumbled "You assholes can HAVE this shitty town" as we hobbled him back to the main drag...
Years later I find this on NewLifeGames.net: Personally, coming from a guy that once had a remote control semi-fake missile launcher pop out of my front headlight grille - I find this amazing... I must be getting old... rotflmao Basically it was a rubbing alcohol potato gun attached to an electric French window opener... a perplexed policeman kindly wrote me a summons to have it removed within 24 hours... arrow I complied... bawling http://newlifegames.net/nlg/index.php?topic=14334.0
