This is a video of boomerang lover Victor Poulin testing out his newly made 25-inch Batarang. It returns and he catches it on his first try — incredible! Did you know boomerangs were originally used for hunting? You would just cream some animal in the head with the thing then drag it off to eat. I mean, provided you were a good throw. If you were a bad throw you either made friends with a guy who was a good throw or starved to death.
