Office Nerf

Now, I don't like to brag, but I've seen my share of office nerf battles. There's the sweet joy in watching an enemy fall to whistling orange and yellow doom, the sorrow of seeing your office-mate, a young man who just a moment ago was placing cover objects in a level, fall to his knees, a dart stuck to his forehead. The sudden adrenaline of battle, which fades to an overwhelming emptiness, as you slowly try to find your darts again. I've been there, my friends, and I hope you never have to experience what I did (I got a dart in the eye. It really hurt).

I just love this video. The sheer amount of people that they had (not to mention the nerf gear) was amazing.

Kids these days just don't know how to cook a grenade. It's a shame.

Yeah! A nice grenade, marinated in a tangy, pepper-sauce and cooked until juicy, but warm, then served with a side of . . .

Oh, wait. You meant the other kind of cooking ;)

I remember one place where I worked that had a GM that was a paintball player. He liked to invite the different departments out for a battle--to build teamwork he said. We were blessed with a sleeper in the form of a quiet, smallish young woman, who when given a gun morphed into a killing machine. Imagine Laura Croft, Padme Amadaula and River Tam rolled into one small blond package and given the killer instincts of a Tasmanian devil (as per Warner Bros.) Ah, the sweet taste of victory! Too bad she ended up moving back east.
