20 June 2010 - 05:57 AMThey didn't show many deaths, in fact only one that I recall. Dwight Schultz (HM Murdock) was in the film, although I missed him completely when I watched it. It was good, I thought it hit you with to much information at some points in the movie, but I understand that they were working to a stopwatch. Murdock is still my favorite.

I'm going to miss Bush's Bushism's. He is great fodder for comedians.
But I give Clinton some credit for being re elected after lying about "not hav(ing) sexual realtions with that woman" and getting away with it, and still leaving office with high approval ratings.
08 October 2008 - 03:26 PMI play because of my husband. It's his favorite hobby and I can share it with him. That... and it's fun to shoot him.
07 September 2008 - 12:23 PMLet me put it as an open question to any lady of the forums that's gotten this far- would you be enticed into playing a sport, ANY sport, purely to give the 'idiot minority' something to look at?
Let me put it to you another way, y'all- would you, as a guy who is relatively new to the sport, and for some reason reads this particular column or page or what have you, would you be even remotely interested in introducing your girlfriend to the sport purely to give the 'idiot minority' something to lust after all day? huh? I wouldn't- actually, I'd keep her as far removed from a field as possible, in those circumstances. (not that that's an option for me, because she plays, and has for over a year) Let me ALSO point out that he also calls out our less 'ladylike' female players- the ones that are, for lack of a better term 'just one of the guys' in almost all aspects- tatts, whatever. again, duh. Really, what kind of girl do you honestly expect to be attracted to the sport of shooting the crap out of your opponent with high velocity gelcaps full of paint? Yes, there are exceptions, don't yell at me (promise you i get at least one angry PM about the preceding sentence).
With everything I've read, there's not much left to add, except my two cents if it even comes to that. If I thought I would be treated like eye candy I wouldn't play, plain and simple. And if I thought that the only way to be accepted as a female player was to dress promiscously, again, you wouldn't see me there. I'd leave it to the pigs. Fortunately there are enough decent guys playing for me to not feel that way.
My husband pointed this thread out to me, I usually get the news on the threads from him and don't log on much myself. But when he first took me to a field with guys outside our group of friends, he warned me of there crudeness etc. And really I didn't see it. So thank you to all the men who aren't pigs and who just play the game for the game and let women do the same.
09 June 2008 - 03:02 PMWill it hurt? Also kinda depends on if you chrono. Playing outlaw ball, before we got a cronoer, I got shot through the vents in the mask and the bits of paintball shell actually cut up around my mouth. That hurt a little while.
But as a relative noob, this is a very informative thread! Thanks!
