My god. I don't blame that kid for trying to wrestle the gun away.

But why was he loading it up if they were just going to hang out in the basement? Perhaps I misunderstood, but it sounded to me like they were staying in the basement.

Must have hurt, but the really sad thing is he didn't call for help. Any idea why?

as for the darwin awards, this guy can't have won one, he didn't actually take himself out of the gene pool.


He didn't win one. Darwinawards.com has several sections for different forms of stupidity:

Darwin Awards - the title object in which the people remove themselves from the gene pool (with one sole exception, Lawn Chair Larry won his award before his death)

Honorable Mentions - the stories with either evidence to support them or many emails from different readers of the same story. These are stories where the idiot lived through their stupidity.

Personal Accounts - particularly interesting emails from some of their users, these are first hand accounts and the least credible IMO. These, again, usually the idiot survives (although sometimes they do not).


right, he gets an honorable mention, like Lawn Chair Larry.

the one thing I thought about this other than something that the filter would catch, is that someone threatening people with a PB gun is the kind of guy who would put his velocity WAY above 300FPS...just a thought

I make a number of points: 1)-All markers are treated as loaded AT ALL TIMES. Basic safety.
2) Andrew is a spoiled brat. Were I one of his friends I would have exited as sone as he started to threaten me with the marker.
3) Yes the marker/paintball could have caused enough damage to his airway to obstruct it and kill him. I know it, you know it. Darwin at work.
4) The uvula, once "shot off", could not "re-grow". it's the same as having it surgically removed. Why this would be done I have no idea.

1)-All markers are treated as loaded AT ALL TIMES.



QFT, Just last time I went paintballing over thanksgiving break, I was loading my hopper and my friend told me to hold my gun in another direction (away from pointing at my thigh). I, like an idiot, said "The safety's on" (my on/off ASA) I didn't know there was air left over in the gun and I popped my self twice in the leg by accident. Luckily they hit at a very slight angle so it didn't hurt at all.

As a medical professional (FF/EMT) of six years let me elaborate.

#3 is true I have personally seen a marker @300fps blow out teeth at point blank range. Soft tissue injuries like those described are not only likely but I would expect them.

#4 again correct, but as to why some one would have the uvula removed this is usually due to infection or major upper airway/ oral pharynx trauma.


Good safety tip: Airway trauma like that describe is most certainly life threatening. The kid was extremely lucky. Even just the blast from his marker without a round will do some major damage. In my line of work if your airway is compromised and you have stopped breathing I have just six minutes to fix the problem and prevent brain damage/brain death...if my unit is fifteen minutes away... you do the math. Bottom line don't put markers where they don't belong and always treat them as live.

I'm guessing the brain damage took place long before the incident did.

People have to be careful and realize paintball markers are not toys! I would just always assume a marker is loaded even when the safety is on. If it doesnt have a barrel sock on it shouldn't be pointed anywhere not intended to fire.
