Damn Nerf Herders
2002-02-08 12:55:12 AM  
Wow my day is saved.

Somehow a nerf war seems perfect for a middle school in Irvine.

(Thatguy adds, rather hypocritically) Perhaps a "Dorks!" tag would be more appropriate than "spiffy"

You show up with a real gun and whipe thoses asses from the surface of the earth
2002-02-08 01:10:13 AM  
biatches. It's all about paintball. Some of the most fun you can have with your pants on. That is, unless you're feeling really bold.
2002-02-08 01:10:16 AM

Check out the picture sections. i looked at LANO )ct 2001 and something and it hurt my eyes. I would link one of the pictures but I'm too stupid.

Um thanks, but I'll stick with my squirt guns filled with hydrochloric acid.

Good one Crotchrocket Slim.

The squirel always gets a chuckle out of me.
2002-02-08 03:08:34 AM  
These guys are goddamned morons.

Stupid tools.

Why don't they go paintballing?
2002-02-08 03:16:55 AM  
Why don't they go paintballing? Doo dah, Doo dah.
2002-02-08 03:18:39 AM  
Sang-Froid, if you clicked the link and read the article, you might know.
2002-02-08 03:29:24 AM  
Is it because paintballs make big ouchies when they hit you?
2002-02-08 03:37:56 AM  
From the site:

Nerf and Paintball are very similar sports. The strategies and ideas involved are much the same, but aside from cost - the cheapest paintball guns cost 10 times as much as the most expensive Nerf guns - Nerf has many advantages over Paintball. For one, you can Nerf just about anywhere. Indoors, outdoors, in public places, it doesn't matter. Paintball indoors is nearly impossible, and in public places will likely get you arrested. You don't need to find a special field to play, and you don't have to pay to gain access to the field. On top of that, without much effort, you can modify many Nerf guns to be just as powerful - and painful - as Paintball. Being that Nerf guns fire relatively soft projectiles instead of paint, there is no need to wear hot and claustrophobic masks and goggles that fog up to protect your face. Sunglasses are the only eye protection necessary.

Wormyguy1: Relax, I was only joking.
2002-02-08 03:45:57 AM  
As I said earlier though "Um thanks, but I'll stick with my squirt guns filled with hydrochloric acid".
2002-02-08 04:11:25 AM  
If I'm gonna play with my children's toys, I'll stick to AirStewardess Barbie, thanks, darling.
What a bunch of WEENIES!!!
2002-02-08 04:49:05 AM  
Irvine, Do I need say more?
2002-02-08 04:55:53 AM  
Crotchrocket Slim-Nice,and you gave the squirrel a G11!Props!
2002-02-08 04:56:41 AM  
MonteVista: nope, damn south county coonts
2002-02-08 04:57:59 AM  
As for the article:
One of the organizers,Raymond D. Moronican,34,was quoted as follows:
"Nref is teh shiznit!Hitting some preson in teh butt equals many roffles and el-oh-els!"
2002-02-08 08:17:34 AM  
I didn't fully check out the site, I admit. Do they count someone out when they're hit? How can they tell? That's the thing with paintball. You nail someone. They know it. You know it. The ref knows it. And there's no dispute. This Nerf War thing could be cool, but I'll still take my paintball bruises over foam darts anyday.
2002-02-08 08:43:57 AM  
In the video i downloaded it looked really lame. unorganized milling about with the occasional chase. yawn.
2002-02-08 09:12:16 AM  
Nerf wars are only fun indoors. Outdoors, it is...how you say...lame.
2002-02-08 09:26:51 AM  
These guys farking hate us. Check out the comments in their forum from the last time we linked to them
2002-02-08 09:29:47 AM  
Here's hoping that the communications with the Irvine cops is VERY good (i.e.: they don't react with typical gung-ho overkill to hysterical phone calls from local soccermoms about "men with guns at the school". The Irvine cops are all basically assholes, and have WAY too much free time on their hands.
2002-02-08 09:41:41 AM  
Don't mock the nerf. When I was in-country, I took a VC nerf dart right in the leg. Farking thing turned septic. One of my buddies carried me out of that jungle, but he had to bite the end of the dart off me. Then while he was carrying me to the chopper, he took a boomerang right in the face. Nerf is more dangerous that you'll ever know.
2002-02-08 09:46:50 AM  
Neonjesus: Wow. Sensitive, aren't they? Personally, I think someone who plays with children's toys with such seriousness should have thicker skin. Kind of like a guy I knew when I was young who had a green mohawk and once complained to me that he hated it when people would stare at him. Good heavens, man, you have a green mohawk.
2002-02-08 09:58:21 AM  
For guys that run around with Nerf guns, they got some mighty big balls!
2002-02-08 10:12:48 AM  
What a bunch of fags, playing with modified nerf guns and claiming its some sort of cool new sport. Why don't they just admit they are too cheap to afford paintball. Additionally, they don't know the first thing about trolling... I've love them to come back over here and 'troll' us. (they didn't even know who the icy hot stuntaz were, did they log onto AOL last week?)
2002-02-08 12:08:46 PM  
"...as many as two-dozen people show up to each war." Earl! Break out the extra lawn chairs! I heard there's at least 2 1/2 dozen coming this year!
2002-02-08 01:41:20 PM  
What a bunch of morons! The guy on the site actually asks you to INVITE you friggin mother. Sheesh. Get a life. I suggest all Farkers that are in the area to grab a paintball gun and go there and destroy destroy destroy!!!
2002-02-08 01:45:54 PM  
Oh no, we've been invaded by Nerf warriors! I'm quaking in my boots.
2002-02-08 02:54:49 PM  
Good point. When you're at work and you have a bruise on your arm or neck or something... I wouldn't hesitate to say "Paintball". "Nerf"...I don't think so.

Don't even try to compare it to paintball Nerfers. It is entirely different. You can get bruises from frickin anything...I just prefer it not to be nerf (or a mugging for that matter).
2002-02-08 03:03:37 PM  
OMFG! 46 posts, "WAR" in the headline, and not ONE....

France surrenders

Congrats, Farkers!
2002-02-08 03:11:10 PM  
I put more thought into it. If: you can modify many Nerf guns to be just as powerful - and painful - as Paintball
why do you only need sunglasses? The goggles in paintball isn't really for the paint, it's because it's speed rated for over 500 FPS. Now, when nerfers are slinging darts at 300 FPS, maybe can compare it to paintball. Right now I don't see running around an open area in the paintball strategy. (Yes I looked at the Nerf video, they are in the open running around in circles trying to get IN RANGE to pop someone acurately) It just seems pretty useless to hide behind stuff when to can just dodge anything beyond ten feet.
2002-02-08 03:55:07 PM  
why is that guy wearing cammo? hes standing next to a building not hiding in bushes.

did you see the nerf site? why not just play paintball? that article shows they know nothing about paintball. you never hear girls calling paintballers pussies, instead their actually playing it. my girlfriend even plays.
2002-02-08 04:04:55 PM  
you think the nerfers would be up for a challenge? they use nerf we use paintball?
2002-02-08 04:26:30 PM  
These nerfherders take the game too damn seriously. They're nerds, they should realize it. Nothing wrong with being a nerd though, 90% of everyone online pretty much is.

Anyway, I'm glad you guys liked the G11-toting Fark Squirrel , I plan on using him a lot more in the future. Maybe get a cliche of two cliches combined going. It'd be interesting...
