so you're playing tennis and the zoo next door opens the gates and lets the animals run free. You have to defend yourself with your forehand, what sort of beasts could you best? I think i would kill a llama for sure if i hit it square in the dome, (as long as it didn't spit in my eye first). What animals could you smite with your groundstrokes?

Extinct yet? You must have a really good forehand.

depends...if the lion roars and is at most 200 meters away I'm pretty sure I can lodge the ball down its throat effectively killing it....

So if the lion don't roar, you're basically screwed up.

I think that a tennis ball right in lion's eye will make you be even more screwed up.

Just hand him the racquet, so he will eat the racquet instead of you.

I was playing in Tampa a few years ago and I hit a bigass dragon fly (dragonflyus bigassus) that was hovering around the net with a topspin forehand.

The dragon fly immediately plunged to earth (a distance of about six feet but that is the equivalent of 100 stories to a dragon fly of average height.)

My friend and I laughed at how odd the event was. I'd like to say I was aiming for the dragon fly and nailed it with my pinpoint accuracy but hitting it was a random event.

A few minutes passed and damn if that dragon fly didn't regain consciousness, recover its composure, dust itself off, and fly away without so much as a whimper as if nothing out of the ordinary had occurred. He had one helluva tale to tell that night at the dragon fly watering hole!!

When you consider the force equation, (a 2.2 ounce tennis ball traveling at approximately 60 mph colliding with a dragon fly that weighs all of 7 grams), that is the rough equivalent of a 200 pound man being struck by an 1800 pound object traveling at 60 mph! Ouch!

Fortunately for me, he was a really cool dragon fly and opted not to pursue personal injury litigation. (I happen to know he is normally represented by the famed insect litigator Johnny Cockroach.)

That was one bad *** dragon fly!!!!!!!!

I could direct my forehand downward, into the ocean from the deck of a boat, and even with water resistance, kill a blue whale.

I could kill a Tyranasaurus Rex with my forehand except that T-Rex is extinct. Then again, so is my forehand.

Thank my forehand.

Slightly off topic... but didn't Chuck Norris create the universe by hitting his forehand into the blackness of space?

Are mushrooms considered "animals"?
