#129386 Nerfworld Is Back Online

Posted by Grinch on 11 November 2007 - 01:44 AM in General Nerf

Wow. Haven't posted in nearly a year. I have an announcment, though:

NerfWorld has returned and can be found at the following URL:


Thanks to Spanky for hosting it. You can find further information on my newspost on the site itself.

I apologize to everyone for having it down this long. I hope this makes up for it.



#83929 Custom Painted "weathered" Nite Finder

Posted by Grinch on 28 June 2006 - 01:12 PM in Modifications

I didn't cover them yet.

Oh, and I just used very fine grit sand paper.

#83914 Custom Painted "weathered" Nite Finder

Posted by Grinch on 28 June 2006 - 01:00 AM in Modifications

All the standard mods have been done. The casing has been reduced in size. The gun was painted with silver, then flat black. Some of the black was carefully scraped up to give it a weathered, metallic look, revealing the silver underneath. The whole thing is clearcoated for protection.

The range isn't superb. It's better than stock, that's for sure, but it's not like my PETG'd Nite Finder. I made this for a display piece, so it's main value is cosmetic. I had it on my shelf for a year or so.

By the way, I have several Nite Finders, and I don't need this one. So, it is for sale. PM me if you're interested to make an offer.

#74751 Lock 'n Load Refinish

Posted by Grinch on 28 February 2006 - 10:10 PM in Modifications

Great paintjob but i noticed that there are some cracks on the handle where it is a redish color.

Hmm...Lock 'N Loads are purple, not red. That's just a reflection.

#74599 Lock 'n Load Refinish

Posted by Grinch on 27 February 2006 - 11:43 PM in Modifications

Hey, everybody. Haven't posted in a while. I'm honestly not into Nerf that much anymore, but the other day I stumbled upon my old Lock 'N Load, and I forgot how much I loved it. I made a dedication to fix it up, as it was in pretty bad condition cosmetically.

Here's what it looked like. Lots of scratches, nicks, paint wear. First, I ripped off the old, sticky electrical tape and sanded off the residue.

First, I cleaned it and gave it a new flat-black paint job. This time I used high-heat paint for better results. After it was all done, I sprayed it with semi-gloss clearcoat (something I didn't do before) to protect the finish.

Posted Image

Here's the final result. It probably needs one more coat of the clearcoat, but I think it's okay for now. I like the feeling of the coating better than the rough texture of spraypaint.

#70763 Itunes

Posted by Grinch on 11 January 2006 - 12:57 AM in Off Topic

I really dislike iPods. I few months ago, I had bought a 30GB iPod, one of the new video models. Cosmetically speaking, it was very attractive. It was sleek, had the famous "chrome and white" color scheme, and the color LCD was mind-blowing. I had about 3000 songs on it, with about 5GB filled up. As a result, I personally think 30GB is a ridiculous amount of space for music.

However, my main issue was the whole battery issue. I would charge it, and the icon would immediately tick down into the red. The thing never had a full charge. Too bad, it was a great MP3 player, but I just couldn't take the short battery life.

#70133 Better Game

Posted by Grinch on 30 December 2005 - 01:30 AM in Off Topic

Call of Duty has better gameplay, but I think Brothers in Arms is probably more historically accurate.

#62753 Punisher Skull On My Ar

Posted by Grinch on 29 August 2005 - 11:35 PM in Off Topic

That looks really nice on a weapon like that. On the FAR, I like it on the magazine as well.

#62351 I'm Alive!

Posted by Grinch on 21 August 2005 - 08:30 PM in Off Topic

Wow, Veggie, you're in the Navy now. What's your rank? :lol:

The few, the proud...oh, wait, that's the marines.

#62350 Happy Birthday Talio

Posted by Grinch on 21 August 2005 - 08:28 PM in Off Topic

Hey, happy birthday dude! Keep on Nerfin'.

#58578 I Hate Topics Like This

That's hilarious.

Posted by Grinch on 25 June 2005 - 08:05 PM in Off Topic

I'm not Jewish, but since when is calling someone a Jew meant to be insulting?

#57189 My Drawings

Posted by Grinch on 10 June 2005 - 07:08 PM in Off Topic

And this is a nerf forum, not a place to go to find out your drawings are crap.

Why does this comment come up so often when people post reasonable things in off-topic? Yeah, it's a Nerf forum, but there's an Off-Topic section for a reason.

#57126 Image Posting Tutorial

Posted by Grinch on 10 June 2005 - 12:51 AM in Site Feedback

I originally posted this on NerfHQ, but I think it would be helpful here as well. I realize that Spectre has already wrote a great general tutorial, but I thought this one would be more specific for those who like, well, pictures.

#55328 Next-gen Console E3 Pics

Posted by Grinch on 20 May 2005 - 05:22 PM in Off Topic

New GameBoy Micro. Note how small the game cartridge to system ratio is. This thing has the highest resolution of any GameBoy.

From my exclusive log-on info on Nintendo's Press Site. Don't try to go there yourself - you need a password. :wink:

Look how small it is...here's a digital photo from E3 at Nintendo's Press Conference.

By the way, please don't go posting these on other websites. It takes up a lot of bandwidth for my site.

My aunt is involved in the press and got a chance to go to E3. Here's some publicity shots of the next gen consoles that I thought I'd share with you guys.

#55145 Another Nerf Forum

Posted by Grinch on 18 May 2005 - 12:18 AM in Off Topic

Sorry to bash, but...

I don't really see a point in making another Nerf forum. A lot of people do it for their own site, but the fact is that most people go to a message board for information.

If you wanted Nerf info, would you rather come to a board like this with hundreds of knowledgable users or a banner ad-filled one like yours (with three whole registered users!)?

I made the same mistake as well about two or three years ago. Diablo did it too with Open::Nerf. The fact is, the NIC has never really accepted more than two forums.

#55021 Sup Dewdz.

Posted by Grinch on 16 May 2005 - 05:27 PM in Off Topic

Actually, Robo, I remember you as always thinking people hated you when in fact, nobody had anything against you.

IR is right, GN sucked balls.

Don't mind OMC, he's good at making those quick little pot-shots.

And, I also remember you being the starter of the "All Purpose Music Topic" with over 200. Buy either way, welcome back.


#55020 Family Guy - Season Four

Posted by Grinch on 16 May 2005 - 05:25 PM in Off Topic

Wow, last night's episode rocked. That whole chicken fight was insane.

American Dad once again had its moments, but didn't compare to Family Guy.

#54977 Family Guy - Season Four

Posted by Grinch on 15 May 2005 - 07:39 PM in Off Topic

I think the first episode of season four was great! I mean Passion of the christ 2.(not to be making fun of others religons or anything).....But that would be awesome.

Yeah, I loved how they turned the cross into a gun.

"Let he without sin kick the first ass."

#54975 Family Guy - Season Four

Posted by Grinch on 15 May 2005 - 07:35 PM in Off Topic

So, what do you guys think of Family Guy, Season 4? I haven't yet seen tonight's episode, but I think they're off to a great start. American Dad, on the other hand, seems to be flopping.

What does everyone else think?

No offense, but has anyone actually tried to steal one?

I still don't get how Erwin Rommel has any relevance to this... :nugget:

#53827 Los Angeles, Mexico

Posted by Grinch on 30 April 2005 - 11:34 AM in Off Topic

Leave Politics for the adults. There is nothing more frustersating then trying to argue a point that you can do NOTHING about. Sure it's good to be informed. But most of you aren't. Your just arguing to argue, and that's so freakin annoying.
So Shut Up!

BK, that's a pathetic argument. You're saying that teens shouldn't express opinions simply because they cannot affect the government?

I'm sorry, I don't do that "children should be seen but not heard" thing.

#53762 Los Angeles, Mexico

Posted by Grinch on 28 April 2005 - 11:34 PM in Off Topic

Grinch.  You're a kid.  Any opinion you may have about the Economic and/or Political state of our Nation is irrelevant*.  This isn't the Dumbfuck Junior High Debate Team.  You are not the Congressional Comittee acting on behalf of the NIC.  If you want to have pretentious teenager political debates, find a forum that caters to pretentious teenagers, maybe comrad lobster can help you with that.  We grownups have plastic toys to discuss.

Are you implying that my opinion is not relevant because of my age? If so, that's a pretty moronic statement you made. And to add, I'm not in junior high, and I've never been on the debate team. If you don't have a real point to argue besides insulting me with no substantial reason, don't even bother posting in this topic.

Talio, and others - you've got the message wrong. It apparently came off as that I despise Mexicans. In reality, my best friend is Mexican-American. She gladly accepts the fact that she lives in America and has fully assimilated - her entire family speaks English fluently.

Also, keep in mind that I said nothing in my post about illegal immigrants. I guess the topic of Mexicans and illegal immigrants are often linked, but that honestly wasn't the purpose of this topic. I really wanted to express my annoyance at pretending we live in Mexico. Once again, I'm proud to be an American citizen and I don't want to be represented as anything other than that.

#53681 Los Angeles, Mexico

Posted by Grinch on 27 April 2005 - 08:38 PM in Off Topic

To be honest, it does offend me. I personally don't want people getting used to thinking Los Angeles is a Mexican city. The fact is, in ten years CA is supposed to be 90% Latino. Eventually, the overwhelming numbers of Spanish-speaking individuals in CA will bring up a conflict as to who California really belongs to.

EDIT: Oh, and Evil, if I had a vagina, and you knew about it, it would mean you were checking out a fifteen year-old male's reproductive organs. Were you disappointed you didn't find what you sought after? Ass.

#53660 Los Angeles, Mexico

Posted by Grinch on 27 April 2005 - 07:38 PM in Off Topic

Read the article, then discuss.


These are popping up all over LA. I'm pissed off. I'm proud to be American and I'm proud to live in Los Angeles, California - an American city, not a Mexican one. I honestly think this is treason. That news station has no right to pretend that California is a Mexican city. Yeah, we ripped them off, but we also bought New York City for $24. You don't see the Dutch complaining.

#52673 Foam Assassins:the Adventures Of Narf!

Personally, I have a feeling that the comedy in that strip is an inside joke between you and your clan members.

...because I sure don't get it. ;)

#52672 Looked For Porn, Found Nerf?

How do you guys check these things? I'm curious to see what Nerf World's search queries are.

Yeah, like Cxwq said, you being a hypocrite can actually be more annoying than this topic itself.

#52078 Prepare Your Bladder For Imminent Release!

Posted by Grinch on 09 April 2005 - 02:29 PM in Modifications

That looks really awesome, but like Cx, i would've sanded down the upraised Nerf logo.

How did you mask off the flames? What kind of tape did you use, or are they hand-painted?

#52040 Hey Are Threre Any Hot Babes On This Site?

Posted by Grinch on 09 April 2005 - 01:40 AM in Off Topic

Funny, I was wondering the same about you.

Dude, owned.

But I was expecting something like that from a smartass like you anyways! I'm sure you get all the babes during your weekends at Hasbro HQ.

#51808 Hey Are Threre Any Hot Babes On This Site?

Posted by Grinch on 06 April 2005 - 11:23 PM in Off Topic

Wow, sad.

I wonder if this kid has ever kissed a girl before. Or even held hands with one.
