    Hello Slow-Mo guys, I’m Samuel, 26 , and Live in the great state of Texas! I have been watching your videos for quite sometime now and never really knew that y’all had lived in TX 😂 either I didn’t know or just really never paid that much attention to it. Lol anyways, just wanted to say Hello and great videos, love them oh so much and hope to hear back!!

      Best to inhale thru nose or at least with you mouth away from the blowgun, not like he's gonna inhale a tranq dart, but still, possible to inhale a smaller darts.

    Is it weird that now I actually want to SEE Gav or Dan get hit with an actual tranquilizer dart with tranquilizing drugs in it? Never got the chance to see that on DEpulse and I have no idea why.

    If you redo the balloon part but put tape on the side where the needle will hit, it shouldn't pop. Would be cool to see the color of water inside change as the "medicine" is injected.
