Huh, funny! I know what lawn darts are............never knew they were called Jarts. Never played them either. Kinda tame. Now croquet I liked...........smashing your opponents ball across the yard and under a bush, then claiming he had to play the lie, now that was a bit of fun.

The girl who lived two doors up from me growing up was out in the front yard when our psycho neighbor decided to throw one from three houses away. (I can post a link to his current incarceration photo if anyone has an interest.) Instead of running off to the side, she tried to outrun it. It caught her in the back, dead center, about six inches below her shoulder blades. She survived but it scared the holy hell out of all involved.
