Going to a golfing driving range to hit a few golf balls is great
stress relief. It's especially fun to try to hit the heavy-duty
vehicle that drives around on the range picking up all the golf
balls. So why not expand on this?
I propose a driving range where there are many breakable
placed throughout the range. Ceramic vases and glass
windows. Old junker cars and TV sets. Get that extra
satisfaction that only the crash and crunch of destruction can
bring as you whack a golfball through the windshield of a VW
Of course, with all these objects strewn about, it would be
hard for a machine to drive through and pick up the loose golf
balls. So instead, a guy dressed in a suit of armor should patrol
the range picking up the golf balls. Of course, you can aim for
Monster Garage: Golf Ball Collector
TV show here in U.S. built a ball collecting vehicle for this range. It shoots back! [krelnik, Oct 05 2004, last modified Oct 17 2004]
||You could sell special golf balls with a small explosive device inside them. First impact arms it, second impact detonates it.
||Oh, no! I can't believe I just suggested an "Exploding XYZ" idea.
||I never thought about golf, but I've thought about an agression "room" or a place that you can just go to break stuff--just to get rid of the excess andgry energy in a directed non-harmful way.
||beauxeault, I actually like the exploding golfball idea... it
seems like the most appropriate use of an explosion out
of all the "XYZs" so far. We'd have to do away with the
armored golfball-picker-upper guy though.
||I think the exploding golfballs would do away with him just fine.
||About a year ago the kid who drives the ball-picker-upper gizmo at our local driving range got creative and painted a big bulls-eye on the side. About two weeks later management made him paint it over because every golfer on the range was aiming at the vehicle and causing all sorts of problems. But it was fun while it lasted.
||Don't gun ranges often put interesting targets out there for people to shoot at?
