Jordan and I not even able to walk down the stairs out of our home the next morning, so we had to use our arms to "monkey" our way down by use of the railings. X) our legs felt like they were going to just... detach
I was a little disappointed at times on my part, shots were connecting alot less than I hoped, but like I said- a LITTLE disappointed. Had my moments.
Moments most memorable:
-OMC's perfect crotch shot on me in the first round (haha ow.)
-his killer crossbow
-Darkshrimp's killer crossbow
-Ompa's very impressive homemade
-Evil and NerfMonkey turning the tables for the win that one round (omg)
-backing into the corner of one of the buildings and OMC laughing at me.. I felt so stupid but it was hilarious
-Navy guys were cool
-3 teams of 5 round.. that was hot!
-Celebrity Delly! That place pwns!
-Rambo's drinks (it was Rambo's right? that was cool of him to bring drinks)
-the location itself.. it was the best place I've played
my legs feel like fire and I missed that post-war experience..haha. Hope to do this again sometime, you guys rule!
and I still own my first car which is a 78 Malibu. It has been restored little by little over the years. It has a 350 engine with aftermarket headers, aftermarket intake, manifold, cam, and gear ratios are a little low. I love this car too much

Here's one from last winter, myself in a 12 inch tall paper doll form, only I cropped the legs or the pic would be kinda tall
Metallic bowl and glass vase watercolors painting
Flowers in watercolors (I felt girly drawing this but it was our assignment)
I think they look better in reality but you get the idea. Right now I'm working on drawing the figure, which has always been a challenge- I've yet to get proportions looking the way I want but it's coming along. I've got a few more things I'll try to post up later on when I get the chance..
Haha no way, I had one of those and played it when I was around..4. www.intellivisionlives.com/ - Yeah I know it's not in relation to the topic..But I had to.
The sad thing is that I can't even remember the names of my Intellivision games. The good music was all on the Nintendo systems, though. Castlevania rocks everyone's socks.
One was during my very own hosted VANO, I'm backing up from an attacker, and there's a big ol' hunk of rock jutting out of the ground (the area's kinda rocky). I didn't realize it was there, tripped, and fell right back on my bum, really hard. Very embarrassing, kinda hurt, but hilarious looking probably.
Next was during dart making. Using a hot glue gun, (not a low-temp glue gun, a real hot glue gun) my pinky finger accidentally touched a dab of hot glue. Immediately when I tried wiping it off I didn't even notice through all the pain that the first layer of skin on my pinky came right off with it, in about a.... 6mm diameter? The pinky felt REALLY weird after that incident.
Fun times indeed..
But I guess when it boils down to on-the-field combat this gun really isn't as practical as most would want. Long priming really slows its potential- I guess one thing it could be good for would be capture the flag, where one person just sits really far away with it and picks off invaders (keeping a backup gun for rushers might be a good idea) but you get the idea. Yeah blink_182 you're probably right, most people probably say a Maxshot is way more practical than an Ultimator.
Waiting to get those pics up still.. need camera back..
Fav. CT only gun: M4
Fav. T only gun: SSG552
I figure anybody who likes nerf will like a combat game like CS
You bet- I've been meaning to slowly creep back onto these boards, I have skimmed them often over the past few months- I never left, it's just being busy with work and school and social time that keeps me from posting Nerf's still in the blood (of course..!)
Whoa, El hombre is back!
Alot of my free time revolves around cars. I own two old Chevrolets that I am constantly putting back together and restoring. It's fun to do stuff like this because you get a big rush of satisfaction when you accomplish something new..(pretty much like when you modify a nerf gun..!)
Ah.. one of the many fun things life has to offer.. cars. Just be careful out there, maniacs live.
By the way, I thought this was pretty cool. The stadium holds events every night that you can enter starting at 20:00. So far I've played 3 of them, you can see which event is happening by reading a banner above the stadium entrance.
"Nerf!" He replied. The title of his project was: The Effect of Barrel Length Modification on the Projectile Motion of a Nerf Dart. (Really long, huh?)
His description: I used different barrel lengths on a modified Nerf Crossbow and fired multiple shots horizontally in projectile motion, and measured flight time, length, and accuracy.
The only way I helped him was by letting him borrow my crossbow, a single dart, changing the barrels on it when needed, and helping to measure in each trial.
Of course the dart type can effect performance, yatta.. but this wasn't meant to be super in-depth.
I had a chance to go into the classroom and look at some of the projects other people were working on.. There was some pretty tough competition- one group of three people were working on a fully functional robot that looked like it came straight out of robot wars, another person was working on this big experiment with sound waves (long story) etc..
ANYWAY, onto the climax.. the result of the project? 2nd place....!! I was really happy to see his success, I was glad that the teachers didn't think he was just some kind of gun-nut, and I was thrilled to see people so interested in his Nerf-based project! Alot of people were simply fascinated by the fact that nerf guns could be modified to achieve better distance. It went really well.. He said he's going to have a website up on it soon, which you can expect me to post up soon. Overall, wicked!
