I had a companion who was a baseball player. One of his favorite ways to get people to talk to was to go to the batting cages and knock the covers off the balls. He usually didn't throw things at people, unless necessary.
I've been cartooning since I was a teenager, and have been published in magazines ranging from AASHTO Quarterly to the New Era and several other periodicals, trade publications and newsletters.
