You’ve probably heard it said, “You never see the bullet that takes you down,” but does that mean you do see the ones that miss? I mean, bullets are pretty darned small and move really fast. Heck, star baseball players with really, really great batting averages can just (really) see only most of the balls pitched their way–the absolute greatest only hit in the 40% range–and baseballs are much, much larger than bullets, and the fastest fastballs travel less than 1/5 the rate of speed of a “slow” .45.
And most pitches are not aimed at the batter, so looking at the balls isn’t quite so dangerous. *heh*
I dunno… “seeing” the bullets that miss would seem to be a low probability event. 🙂
