The centipede incident
Now, I know all I did was kill a bug, but I'm fairly proud of the killshot I delivered. I had to throw the book ahead of the centipede, much as the pilot of an F-86 leading a Mig-15 with his hail of .50 calibre death would do. Thanks, Chuck Yeager flight simulator from the early 90's. It's the man, not the machine!
The book, incidentally was Jupiter's Travels, by Ted Simon. Resolute e-mailed Ted Simon a couple of years ago and he sent back a nice reply.
