A Hobby With Unexpected Returns
Robert C Taylor

Stick throwing may not sound like a great hobby. But when the stick is a boomerang, it can provide unexpected entertainment. This Australian pastime originated with the aborigines (native Australians). They discovered that flat, curved sticks sometimes traveled in fascinating patterns when thrown. By altering the shape of a stick, they found it would travel farther or, in some cases, even return to the thrower. Not all boomerangs are designed to come back. The aboriginal hunting stick can travel in a straight line for up to 200 yards (180 meters) - about twice as far as a man could throw a spear. The hunting stick is longer and heavier than a returning boomerang and can deal a fatal blow to a game animal.
