Haman’s Highlights brings you “Just Another Reason to Love Your Job”.
This is it, true believers. We counted down the strangest jobs of all time, and now it’s finally here!
A slinger was a man trained to use the sling. The sling was an essential part of roman military strategy because it was more effective (both in distance and damage) than an arrow. As a child, slingers-in-training, would be required to kill their dinner – no kill, no food. It was an extremely good way to get youth trained quickly. The slinger could throw stones up to one pound in weight, and they could be used accurately up to 200 meters.
And there you have it folks the number one strangest job in history. This is Lynn Haman saying have a good day and a pleasant tomorrow!
