At first this thing annoyed the man, but with the invention of fire and the creation of the wheel, the man also thought about wearing elastics in his life. This property of elasticity was commonly exhibited by the parts of animals that man ate. This is how the first elastic cords were born, which were made of animal gut to hold things together. As time passed, man realized that these bungee cords could also be used as weapons. When a bullet was loaded onto these bungee cords, they were thrown through the air at high speed. This resulted in the invention of the bow and arrow.
