So do you remember Jarts? My family always used to have them setup where we could play Jarts at any reunion or BBQ... And I always remembered how I thought they were ridiculously dangerous considering they were basically weighted flying projectiles of injury. Apparently the United States government also thought they were dangerous because on December 19th, 1988 they were banned from being sold in the U.S. after the deaths of three children.
But that hasn't stopped a company called "Jarts in the Heart" from selling then online now thanks to some legal loopholes (apparently by selling the metal tips seperately)! The best part is their description of the product:
"These Jarts are NOT toys. They should be kept out of reach from children. They should be treated as you would a bow and arrow. These have and will puncture a person. If you have the IQ of a monkey please don't buy lawn darts. I will not sell to anyone under 18. I do not have many sets left so when they're gone they're gone [..] Jarts in Your Heart will not be held liable for any death or injury caused by these Jarts. By purchasing from Jarts in your heart you agree to these terms. Again, I can not stress this enough. If you're an idiot just don't buy Jarts, stick to playing Horseshoes, Baggo or that ladder ball game."
All I have to say is awesome. Unfortunately it looks like the website is now down so you can't actually order them... But it was great while it lasted!

Hey all, Dave here. I hope you enjoy the random things that I find across the web, and my spin on what they mean. Feel free to leave any comments if you think I'm way off on something.
