Llama Laser Sights

This is not an idea about Sharp Shooter Llamas

Llamas spit. To avoid being spit on, a laser sight can be mounted on the snouts of llamas. When the llama is about to spit, the muscles used in spitting will activate the laser. The one drawback of this is the laser will go further than the spit so some people out of the firing zone will be alerted needlessly. Being aware of the laser and reaction time once you see it is key to not recieving unwanted mucus. If the mucus is wanted (whatever floats your boat), disregard the laser.

To deal with the Parabolic Trajectory of the projectile the laser will be a vertical line versus a single dot. [Thanks RBStimers].

To deal with wind the llama will wear a propellar hat or cap hooked up to a motor on the laser that will compensate for wind drift.

Llamas + lasers = old school gaming http://images.googl.../images?q=llamatron

       sp: mucus. (or mucous, I guess if you're a Brit receiving this, but I think not)

       How are you proposing to compensate for the parabolic trajectory of the llama spit?

       Yes [MrDaliLlama], how are you proposing to compensate for the parabolic trajectory of the llama spit? (Thank you [wagster], nice one)

       Very Jeff Minter.

       La llama es a quadruped que vive en los ríos grandes como el Amazon. Tiene dos oídos, un corazón, una frente, y un pico para comer la miel. Pero se proporciona las aletas para la natación.   

       Las llamas son más grandes que ranas.   

       Las llamas son peligrosas, así que si usted ve uno donde la gente está nadando, usted grita... "mire hacia fuera, allí son llamas!" (Python)

       to allow for the parabolic trajectory, the laser could project a vertical line covering the area it might hit.

       [Pooduck] I guess I have created Sharp Shooter Llamas. May the Llama Liberation Army use them well to free Llamas from sacrafice in Sun God rituals everywhere in South America. Parabolic trajectory would be a problem [Wagster]. [RBStimers]' idea to have the laser project a vertical line might work.

       Very Terry Pratchett as well. There was a camel called You Bastard in one of his discworld books, who was the World's Best Mathematician (spit trajectories).
