    "That's so quick" they say, not realizing it's emptying it's content into the air. Of course it's going to be quick. Emptying into muscle is going to take longer.

    another fun fact, the normal hole of the needle could not be used in its normal fashion to administer the tranquilizer due to the pressure difference between mode of travel and the injection site. once the dart is released from the blow gun, the liquid would begin to expel out the tip and losing fluid before making contact with the target. this is because the dart is lightly pressurized to eject the fluid without having someone press the syringe to force it out by hand. the tip is also at risk of being plugged by skin or whatever it may puncture through, like tough scales, or thick hide, that suddenly the only hole of escape for the liquid is plugged and the tranquilizer will not inject the liquid even though proper contact was made. so the tip is plugged intentionally, and used as a spear point to penetrate a hole for the whole needle to pass and then the side hole is rigged to release the cover once its at a deep enough level into the target that the liquid can release. the only downside to this design is you have to rely on over shooting with force than undershooting because if the puncture only barely passes the tip, it may not trigger the slide off cover for the side hole and the tranquilizer will most likely just fall off it its dangling from the somewhere. i must admit that all of this is entirely my own conclusions based on observations from the slow mo videos shown here. so i am pretty sure i have no idea what i am talking about :D
