I encourage everyone to please take the time to read this important article on Forbes.com which was written by Dr. Robert Glatter.

 

In this article, Dr. Glatter warns that "Hasbro now has a product on the market known as Nerf darts".  These darts, which are "akin to bullets" have caused minor eye injuries for 3 people in the UK which required them to use eyedrops for a short period of time.  Dr. Glatter goes on to further warn that these darts can be made even more dangerous through modification as shown in this video.

 

I implore anyone who is organizing any event using these new Nerf darts to heed the expert and well informed advice of Dr. Glatter; please use full-face protection and avoid modifying these darts in any way.  Failing to follow these guidelines places everyone in risk of minor eye injury and/or death.

 

Thank you.

Definitely don't put poo on the darts because then they can cause pinkeye

I didn't know people did that. This is such a dangerous hobby. Maybe we should quit doing it?

I dunno, I think it's still safer than putting poo inside paintballs or making airsoft pellets out of frozen pee
