I also recieved a thousand or so ant bites while putting up a sniper position on one of the biggest ant hills I've seen around here. I was laying prone and wondering what this strange tingling/poking sensation was.

Then I felt about 100 or so all at once....OUTCH! I looked down and couldn't stop laughing....how could I be so stupid. It took me about 5 minutes to get all the ants off me...they were everywhere! My legs, arms and chest was literally one moving mass. 3D ant camo - cheyeah! ;)

Not many deaths related to paintball... worst thing that ever happened to me, and doesn't effect me much, was when I was reffing a game. 2 vs. 2, and it was a good firefight (keep in mind though, this was when I used to play speedball), and I mean GOOD. All of a sudden, one of the guys gun crapped out on him, and I didn't want it to end that way. I ran behind the dead box and got him my gun (Piranah something or other with a sensitive trigger), and gave it to him. The way I handed it to him was so he was practically holding the trigger, and when I let go I brought my finger under the barrel. It was bent, so my knuckle was have in it, and he accidently pulled the trigger. I heard a crack, and it was bleeding, but I ignored it. Played the rest of that night with no problem, and a day later I noticed problems. It was hurting, and I was having trouble moving it. We go to the doctor, and it's not broken. I get it looked at extensively, and it turns out it totally killed off my nerves or something that disables me from moving my finger certain ways. It's been more than 3 years now, and I still cannot move it on demand. A lot of times when I bend my hand to show people, the stupid finger just sits there, while the others move. I can still hold things normally, like it will react when I go to grab something, but a lot of times I have trouble. Even now as I type, I have trouble because I go to hit either 'q', 'a', 'z', 'w', 's', and 'x', I often can't. It's annoying, because I cannot move the finger to touch the key. Even more annoying, most of the time it will react to hitting the key. So a death? No. A major problem? Not really. Painfull? Almost never. Annoying? Heck yes.

Paintball markers are not 'gun's. The BATF changed their decision on what is classified as a firearm and paintball markers do not meet the qualifications. Since is a govoernemnt organization and so is your school, they have to respect that ruling UNLESS they make up a new rule or rule that could include paintball markers. Such as, you cant bring them to school because somone might think its a real gun or you cant bring it because if the air is on somone could get hurt.

Ping-Pong?

Shens.

What injury could you possible suffer from Ping-Pong other than a sore wrist? Lol, it might be possible for a ball (sick minded) to become stuck in your eye permanently!...

paintball comes in at .24 injuries per 1000 participants...in other words, 1 trip to the ER or the hospital per 4000 participants...1/10th of the injuries sustained in ping-pong.

if you're gonna call shens on a statistic, don't be lazy, go and find something that proves you right.

Ping-pong injuries.... I've suffered 1 but didn't need the hospital though. The guys grip slipped and I took the paddle to the shoulder. Had I ducked instead of moving to the left it probably would have hit me in the head.
