Slingshots were popular many years ago. If you grew up as a kid in the 80’s and 90’s, you’ve probably even played with the toy with your friends. They were as cool as Nerf guns back in the days!
Well apparently, some people never grew out of their love for slingshots. Case in point, this man from the Philippines continues to play with slingshots and, as a result of that, has mastered the weapon.
Meet Jayvee Baylon – slingshot master!
Jayvee Baylon, who hails from Biñan, a city in the province of Laguna, is a master-level sharpshooter because of his unusual skill. His astounding accuracy allows him to hit any target using his weapon of choice.
According to KickerDaily, a slingshot (or “tirador” as it is called in the Philippines) is “normally a small hand-powered projectile weapon.”
The article further describes:
“The classic form consists of a Y-shaped frame held in the offhand (non-dominant hand), with two natural-rubber strips attached to the uprights. The other ends of the strips lead back to a pocket that holds the projectile. The dominant hand grasps the pocket and draws it back to the desired extent to provide power for the projectile—up to a full span of the arm with sufficiently long bands.”
Jayvee isn’t a mere master though – he is also a serious collector and a skilled maker.
Aside from being a sharpshooter, Jayvee also collects slingshots of different sizes and colors, some of which he has acquired from both local and international sellers. He also has a shop where he creates slingshots and sells them to fellow enthusiasts.
His RadTechSlingShots Instagram page is full of updates of his recent works.
Jayvee hopes that in the future, his favorite hobby will officially become a sport.
Baylon recently caught the attention of HISTORY Asia and they featured him in this short video below.

Woman Brushes Teeth With Charcoal For 7 Days And Here’s The Outcome
A woman experiments on activated charcoal by using it as an alternative to her toothpaste to see if it is more effective in making her teeth whiter.
Many of us fail to recognize the role of good oral health as an important factor for our overall wellness. The simple task of brushing the teeth can prevent many serious diseases but with the lifestyle we maintain, we oftentimes forget to do such simple task.
Since we were young, we were already taught that toothpaste is best in cleaning the teeth. But apparently, there are alternatives out there that might be better than toothpaste.
A woman skipped the use of mint-flavored toothpaste to try the effects of activated charcoal. Kate Taylor used to brush her teeth twice a day with a toothpaste that promises “advanced whitening.”...

Even if you are a big fast food fan, however, we suggest you do not take the Big Mac Challenge that’s recently been making rounds online. You’ll probably end up regretting it!

Criminal With One Blue Eye and One Brown Eye Becomes a Hot Model!
Ladies, meet Prison Bae!
In the past, getting into modeling means walking into a agency and submitting your portfolio, hoping that the discriminating eye of the agents will see something good in your photos. All this changed when social media came into the picture. Because of this, even the most unimaginable candidates for a modeling job can secure a precious contract if their mug shots catch the eye of the public - eventually the images will likewise grab the attention of the modeling agencies.
In 2014, for example, Jeremy Meeks caught the eye of social media for having model-level good looks. Nothing unusual there, if not for his status – he was in prison arrested on firearms charges and grand theft.
