      Dont you think the applied physics of the two are
      quite different? They REALLY are. Comparing a longbow,
      a compound and a recurve is apples and different
      apples, NOT a Crossbow and (any) bow Handbow.

      (and please dont tell me about the "they both (xbow
      and bow) get the arrow/bolt to the target" speech. A
      motorcycle and a car get you from point A to point B,
      but do it quite differently.)
