11 August 2013 - 07:48 PMSo post up your funniest moment in paintball.
I was playing an outlaw game with friends in a cow pasture. I spotted a friend on the opposing team, fired a few shots at him, and started chasing him as he retreated. As I raised my marker to fire and plaster him between the shoulder blades, he suddenly disappeared into a trench! I was stunned that he seemed to have eyes in the back of his head! After the game, I asked how he knew to duck at just the right second.... His reply: "I accidentally fell down."
21 June 2013 - 06:40 PMThis thread is spam. I know, I know. It is against the rules.
The thing is, I've been making these retrothreads for awhile now.... And there used to be spam threads in GPD, so this is a spam retrothread.
How is everybody? I've taken up a sport far cheaper than paintball. I started playing Disc Golf. It's pretty fun!
I miss paintball.

29 December 2012 - 01:20 PMSo.....since we have such a strong Canadian influence on this forum, I thought I'd take the time to ask some questions about Canada. I mean, I could look stuff up on Wikipedia, but this is more fun. Now, I have been to Canada once. I went to Vancouver and Victoria. I also went on an international exchange to the U.K. and there were several Canadians there, including one French Canadian. But since I didn't know anyone in Vancouver or Victoria, and since the kids on my exchange trip were not...friendly... I didn't learn as much about Canada as one might hope.
In the spirit of reducing ignorance, I will try to keep my stupid questions to a minimum. But in case I do ask a stupid question, please keep in mind I am asking in sincere interest and do not intentionally ask anything offensively.
Ssssssoooo...... What's the deal with two official languages? French and English, right? Do I recall correctly that both are required in school? French Canada is basically one province, is that correct? I'm sure that French Canadians reside all over Canada, but one main province speaks primarily French? When in predominantly English-speaking parts of the country, do the French Canadians speak English? Or do they continue on in French since most of the population (given its school requirement) should have basic proficiency in French? I'm sure it varies from person to person, but what do you think most do? I'm curious about how the bilingual dynamic works in Canada.
I grew up in a place that has a constant influx of Spanish-speaking people. In a way, since we have, and have had for quite some time, such a steep increase in the number of these immigrants, it is too bad that we have not required the teaching of Spanish alongside English. I won't debate the whole issue, because I know many people swing to the "English Only" side. However, our lack of requirement to learn other languages results in the immigrants keeping to themselves, and etc, etc, etc.
10 December 2012 - 05:51 PMSo for Christmas I decided to give my brother in law something special. His cousin does this thing called "hydrographics" where they put a finish on things (anything as it turns out) using a process that is somewhat like those old water decals you put on your plastic models. I've handled the finish on something he did, and it seems pretty tough. So I had him do a M98 for me. He's supposed to have it done this week or next, so after I get it, I'll post pics.
He showed me prices, and while $100 (I got a discount. ) is a bit pricey for a M98, it's not a bad price for an awesome finish on your high-end marker.
