Lost A Job

01 June 2005 - 01:11 PM

Ok so I'm trying to get a job at Ace, interview goes fine and all that. When I get the callback he says he'll hire me if I cut my hair, otherwise I should start looking for a different job. He says that the patrons wouldn't take very well to it. Now unfortunatly my hair is a point of pride and the one thing I cannot part with. Personally I think it's downright fucked-up not to hire someone because he has long hair.
This is just a rant, something I needed to get off my chest.

Here's the length (sorry I couldn't find a picture where I was happy)

Edit: sorry that came out way to big.

Star Wars Revenge Of The Sith

23 May 2005 - 04:42 PM

OK, who didn't see this thread coming. So this movie seemed a lot darker then his others, it was rightly rated PG-13, a kid that was too young was in the theatre with his parents started bawling, so what do his parents do? Tell him to shut-up. Personally I think it was a good and fitting close, though others might disagree. The graphics in this one were flat out astounding. At points I forgot it was a computer, the detail is maticulous, even on the big screen.

Why Nerf Is The Ulitimate Sport

13 February 2005 - 05:10 PM

Originally I intended to post this in articles but I can't so here it is.

The first reaction I usually get when I tell people about nerf is, " What, plastic guns, yeah sounds like a real sport," with an overly sarcastic tone.
You see they are totally convinced that anything that doesn't involve a small, open, flat surface with brightly colored opponents running into each other at some point in the game isn't a sport.
Now if their IQ is high enough I'll sit them down and explain it to them what I'm about to tell you.
Nerf, though never given the title, is in almost every way the ultimate sport, incorporating physical, mechanical, and tactical abilities into a single sport.
Physical: This aspect is fairly obvious, you need to be somewhat physically fit in order to take hits, dodge, and evade incoming fire, as well as successfully launch a hit & run barrage.
Mechanical: This is mainly in the pre-war phase, it is the art of modifying your weapons cosmetically and internally. You see cosmetically as stated in one of my prior articles as well as stated by cxwq a good paint job can easily fool an opponent into thinking it is more powerful then it is. And as on occasion, due to bulk you may need to drop a blaster while on the run, and it needs to be able to take a hit. If a gun is poorly assembled or re-assembled it would break, costing you time and money.
Tactical, pretty obvious one here, standing in one spot and shooting isn't going to work no matter how much you want it to. If you want to survive more than five minutes you're going to need to learn at least basic techniques: back-peddling, makeshift cover, psyche-out, and home terrain advantage. On an open field such as well, any of the mainstream sports football soccer, hockey, basketball, or baseball you don't have to worry about cover in the form of trees or even hills for that matter. I can bet most of the major league athletes wouldn’t stand a chance if someone threw a tree or a bush into the field.
So you see despite the lack of publicity, Nerf really is one of the best sports that exist today.
After explaining all that the person usually simply responds with, "well then why don't you just paintball?"
The answer is simple, reusable ammo, cheaper weapons, and parental restrictions.
So next time some moron insults your hobby tell them this, then belittle their sport.

Hosting Nerf War

31 July 2004 - 09:32 PM

I've been planning an overnight nerf war with my friends for about a month now, but up until recently we had no set date. We finnaly set it for this thursday the 5th-6th ammo, wepons(if the n-strike doesn't get here in time I'm going to strangle someone) and food are being taken care of. Unfortunatly we are at a loss for good rules and I am afraid peoople will lose interest. We play a basic war with hit points, 2 or 3 teams and last team standing wins. As of now we only have basic rules such as hit on gun is not a hit on you and no time piriod between hits. I want to involve trading and spies but with a small amount of people and no way to regulate it I cannot figure out how. Any suggestion would be much apreciated, thanks.
