    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 LVsoft 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.
