994 - Describing Accuracy and Inaccuracy

April 28th, 2014

Episode 68 of 463 episodes

If you love movies about women hunting with bows and arrows, this is the episode for you. Slow dialog: 1:10 Explanations: 3:00 Fast dialog: 12:47 Rona: This is impossible. I’m never going to hit the target. Why is it that I’m the only one in this archery class who has no aim? Leonardo: You’re doing fine. I can tell you’re new to this. It takes some practice to develop any precision. Rona: But you seem to be picking it up quickly. Leonardo: I’m taking this class as a refresher. My father taught me the rudiments of archery when I was a kid and I thought I would take it up again. Rona: You’re really good. You’ve hit the bullseye three times already. Leonardo: I’m using a much more forgiving bow than you are. If I aim for the target, I can usually get the arrow in the neighborhood of the bullseye. Rona: You’re just trying to make me feel better. I’m hitting wide of the mark every time! Leonardo: I think your arms are too tense and that tension is ruining your accuracy. Here, let me help you. Rona: Watch out. With my aim, I could take you out. Leonardo: I’ll take my chances. Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
