    ericshindman has a good point....simple laws of physics at work here

    I'll tell you what we expect, ericshindman. Because of the laws we have, we don't anticipate moving bullets for which we will have to get out of the way. And if people are not expecting them, how do they avoid them? That's like asking how you would avoid me smacking you up side the head for being an idiot. You wouldn't expect it! But had I been your big brother when you were a kid, such nonsense wouldn't cross the barrier of your teeth these days, because you would have gotten used to being smacked up side the head for it so often back when you were a snot-nosed, lil kid. =D
