*Although funny, this is a fictional cartoon. Please remember that when playing paintball safety always comes first. Always wear a mask and if you notice some one not doing this tell them to put it on! Not wearing a mask could result in serious injury.*

*Kicks Paul out of thread and slams door shut on him while dusting off hands* You know that was funny, and if it wasn't to you for such a stupid reason then GTFO AND DON'T POST!

First off...you sent me the link...asking "where's the 'no mask' comment?"...so you knew before I even saw it, that it was coming. Don't play it off like you are simply responding to this...

FROM AIM:
armedfuture (12:57:50 AM): no "where's the goggles?" comments on this one
armedfuture (1:03:26 AM): OMG!

Safety and the impropriety of that video are opposite ends of the spectrum. It's because you have the mentality and maturity of - and the sense of humor of - a deprived, Great Depression ERA juvenile who liked to catch and torture rats for recreation...

Grow up.

haha !!! retarded kid with "pb nuke" = bad

It's a cartoon ... i don't think anything bad would come out of it ...

The tazmanian devil spins around and rips everything apart ... i don't see kids doing it ... (atleast i hope not)

I put this up because it was funny and I thought other's would enjoy. Every single other person in that cartoon had a mask on. If you play paintball, which we all do, I think you understand the importance of a mask. We've all be hit and bruised and/or bled from a hit before so I don't think we'll be taking our masks off anytime soon. Try to enjoy this, is was meant in fun, not for critiquing and arguing.

We do... They are called paintball grenade launchers... They shoot like a shotgun, not grenade.

Here is a video of them.

It seems like a waste of paint. I could hit the target at that range with my first or second shot. Now if you are firing at me, unless I completely goof, I would duck around cover wait for the blast then blow him away. I would rather have the paint nuke or land mine with timer. atleast then I would blast people

apparently you don't see my point of view. You look at it from a "that's funny/cool/agg point of view. Others see it differently...such as an unmasked player going "gun nuts" or the "thrill of the kill." That's the opposite of the opinion we want paintball to be portrayed as.

... but out of how many people that play paintball put screwdrivers in paintball markers ?? ...

no...but how many kids have been injured because they weren't wearing a mask? And wasn't it you that once told me that your parents giveyou flack about "wasting $40" for a case of paint? What would their opinion be if they saw that cartoon?

Think aboutit people....

Though, everyone else did have masks on ... didn't they ?? And my parents wouldn't think i was stupid enough not to wear goggles when im playing pb anyway. The character is a total wackjob, and this is all totally fictional. Getting mad over something that means nothing is pointless. I don't think i really learned anything from it, so why get mad ?? I really don't think this was meant for kids that are influenced easily, neither do i think they have easy access to this kind of material. Besides it's just meaningless humor. It didn't do any damage, did it ??

Druid I think you got into this too much and have gone overboard. Its a cartoon, nothing more. Anytime I'm at the field if I see someone not following the rules I let them know. If it was a real video and it showed people playing with their masks off then I probably wouldn't have posted it. Its meant to be funny, nothing more. Its not an instructional video. It doesn't say, "Hey everyone go out and do this." I don't think its portraying anything but being a funny cartoon. How many times do you go to the field and see someone carrying 2 marker, timed mines and a paintball nuke? I've never seen it. I understand that it is important to be safe and to push safety in paintball, but if it all has to be serious and we can never have any fun whats the point?

The idea is that EVERYONE should be wearing them
And my parents wouldn't think i was stupid enough not to wear goggles when im playing pb anyway. The character is a total wackjob, and this is all totally fictional.
and yet his "Rambo" personality is what's thought of everyone who plays
Getting mad over something that means nothing is pointless.
It means something to someone...just not necessarily you or sac or even dragon...but someone....
I don't think i really learned anything from it, so why get mad ??
I get mad whenever someone posts something that gives some noob the notion that it's 'funny or ok.' NOT wearing a mask and giving people....news media, parents and government officials...the notion that we are all a bunch of hate mongoring, "wanna-be killing spree", savages is NOT what we need. Do you honestly think paintballing kids are the only ones signed in to these boards? Please...give me a break...
I really don't think this was meant for kids that are influenced easily,
It's never meant for the easily influenced...but it gets to them regardless.
neither do i think they have easy access to this kind of material.
Oh just stop....that's like saying convicted felons and the insane can't get handguns...or the average 16 year old can't get around security settings and hack computers...or dodge their parents every attempt to look at porn....or a child molester to move without reporting it under Meagan's Law requirements....just bow out gracefully and let the deep-thinking to those of us that have our big boy panties....
Besides it's just meaningless humor. It didn't do any damage, did it ??

not yet....just waiting....

yep...so do I...and so do many....but is it all caught? no...and it never will be...
If it was a real video and it showed people playing with their masks off then I probably wouldn't have posted it. Its meant to be funny, nothing more.
that's the point...it's only funny to you and perhaps a few others...that don't sit down and take the time to THINK about the message it sends. You look at it as "simple humor" when someone else sees something else. The Brady Bill was brought on to all of America because of one person...nevermind the person was insane...take it out on all the other 15 million law-abiding gun owners instead.....
Its not an instructional video. It doesn't say, "Hey everyone go out and do this." I don't think its portraying anything but being a funny cartoon.

that's just it. What you consider "harmless fun"....who are you to judge? it HAS to be serious because it has HARMFUL POTENTIAL..,.God...you just don't get it...

Ok how abot this...take your mattress and lay it on the ground outside a 3rd story bedroom window. You want to jump? It's just harmless fun right?

Ahem ...

It's a cartoon !!!! ... if they were wolves and fairies and bears in substitution for the people would you be happier !??!?!

anyone with a tiny bit of knowledge would be able to understand that you SHOULD wear goggles at all time while playing paintball. It hasn't got to me, and people that think it's "cool" not to wear goggles shouldn't be playing paintball, or even have access to one in the firstplace. Yes i do understand, yet they do play and have access, but their irresponsibility of safety regulations STRICTLY written in the manual, and the gun itself will lead to their own death, partly their parents fault for not reading it for themselves.

Well, im directing at young people, and not anyone over the age of 13 with a bit of common sense. Young children don't have access to "porn", "gunning", "violence" from blockers. Parents are more protective now, have you seen that they now block TV channels ??

Would you be happier if we posted a "NOOBS GET OUT" as of those little "56k HELL NO" ... then before we post the vid we post whats wrong with it ... How about we make it a little like South park in the beginning.

"All characters and events in this show--even those based on real people--are entirely fictional. All celebrity voices are impersonated.....poorly. The following containts coarse language and due to its content it should not be viewed by anyone"

I do remember you thought South park is funny, but have you seen any of the outrageous things that they do ?? Those too can influence children, so you should get mad and rampage all over the place, shouldn't you ??

I am going to bow down as of now, but those bigboy panties your talking arn't as big as you think they are.

No, that is harmful, I know that. Just like I know that if I don't wear my mask and get shot in the face its going to be harmful, but I know how to separate fiction from non-fiction, obviously you are having a problem with that. I don't think you get that it was just made in fun. Nobody made this to promote harmful activity on the paintball field. We all understand that a mask should be worn at all times on the field. Instead of throwing a hissy fit maybe you should have just post your, "no it's not...the kid should have a mask on CARTOON OR NOT....and it paints us (pardon the pun) in a bad light. period." and left it at that. Nobody came back and said "No you don't have to wear your mask." Tim came back with a stupid comment but he told you to post in the thread which you so nicely proved.

Maybe we should make a new forum rule: No fun what so ever, none, zip, zero, nada. Only serious paintball talk. All violators will be banned immediately.

yes...that's you, me and all the other old-heads on all the forums that KNOW BETTER...God...get it through your head that I'm not saying this stuff for YOU, ME OR ALL THE OTHER OLD HEADS HERE! It's the kids WHO DON'T KNOW!!!!!.......
Perhaps this is a better example...backyard wrestling. Now before you blow off like a gyser, hear me out. Back yard wrestling is SCRIPTED. Everything is REHEARSED. I know several of my daughter's friends that do it. They got the idea from watching wrestling on TV and other kids on the internet and some of the 'reality' TV shows. Now...to them it's "harmless fun." They formulate scripts, construct demo props (cardboard) and then the actual props they use in the video. AND THEY STILL GET HURT...and one of these days, their luck is going to run out and they are going to land in the emergency room...and I'll be right there to say "I told you so."
obviously you are having a problem with that.
No...I have a problem with posting something that a NOOB will see - someone NOT fully acquainted with the inherent dangers of paintball...think it's funny and try to duplicate it.
I don't think you get that it was just made in fun.
yes I do, believe it or not
Nobody made this to promote harmful activity on the paintball field.
but that's the message it sends..not to you...not to me...to someone who MAY NOT KNOW BETTER....
We all understand that a mask should be worn at all times on the field.
That's right....WE do..not the new 12/13/14 year old that played it once and THEN found our forum.
Instead of throwing a hissy fit maybe you should have just post your, "no it's not...the kid should have a mask on CARTOON OR NOT....and it paints us (pardon the pun) in a bad light. period." and left it at that.
I tried to but Tim had to open his mouth (yet again). He has this problem of 'not knowing when to shut up'....ask my oldest daughter....she could tell you better than I.
Nobody came back and said "No you don't have to wear your mask." Tim came back with a stupid comment but he told you to post in the thread which you so nicely proved.
As I have said before...anytime I think something is going to send the wrong message to a child (especially one new to the game)...I WILL speak out against it. The problem here is, I don't think along the lines you younger bucks do. I see past my own point of view for the good of the COMMUNITY...not just my own morbid curiosity or sense of humor....
Maybe we should make a new forum rule: No fun what so ever, none, zip, zero, nada. Only serious paintball talk. All violators will be banned immediately.

When it comes to player's safety, that's right. May be we should.

Ever heard of something called cross referencing to make sure you didn';t think I was pulling something outa my ass?

And the English language is fairly simple as long as you can read. Try it sometime. ;)

**shakes head side-to-side** It's not ME that doesn't get it. I get it. It's poking fun. wow...funny - eyeroll...

It's not going to be so funny if/when someone gets their eye blasted out of it's socket and comes back with "well, I saw this post on SOC..." and shunut gets thrown into a lawsuit with Kingman and SOC in general, now is it? All it takes is one...just ONE ass-hat to SCREW IT UP for the rest of us. You are too busy being pissed off at me for speaking up against it, instead of thinking ahead of what could happen. You're blinded to what is possible in your "meh.....it'll never happen", uninformed little worlds...

...and please...my English surpasses yours by a long shot...let's not compare report cards....ok? I'm done with college...how about you?

Here's the difference between us: I am intelligent and you just try to be. You look towards people on forum boards as 'objects to try and PWN"...and proof is in most AIM and the kusachat room conversations. You must lack self esteem and need to feel better about yourself by insulting people over the internet...since you can't do it at home or even when stepping out your front door. Your surroundings scared you into their mentality...instead of standing up to it. Congratulations...You say you want to visit here...that should prove interesting to say the LEAST...I'll have your "Cowardly Lion" award waiting for you.
I, on the other hand...don't give a rat's ass. I'm not a cowardly conformist who needs the internet to make myself feel better. I don't care if people don't like my point of view. I don't care if people even like me. I tell them or show them another or different point of view in the hopes of changing their minds. The problem is, most are too thick-headed or prideful to accept it as an alternative to theirs.

It actually seems that you pretty much shoot down every thread that is posted on this forum.

then you obviously aren't looking around hard enough.


Look.....yes, it's a cartoon....and yes, it's meant to be taken lightly. HOWEVER...the message it sends to the youngest member...with little or NO PB experience is the wrong message - regardless of the medium used to display it.

You all look at it from the cartoon/content point of view as a child would. I look at it from a parent, knowing a little something about the law (and how prosecutors think and work) and how people are quick to file a law suit - point of view. In other words...a point of view you can't...or more to the point...DON'T want to see.

None of you have stopped to think of the possibility of some youngster mimicking that...or the aftermath of a serious problem occurring. That's it. I'm done. Honestly...it's like talking to a wall sometimes...have fun with your cartoon video. I seriously hope that no one gets hurt from posting stuff like this.

Druid you back to work yet? I think all this staying home is making you grumpy :)

J/K I love this stuff.

You all make me laugh, the banter back and forth is great.

Now I do normally agree with Druid, but this time I don't really.... You have kids and I am sure you have watched the cartoons they have on TV. If our kids did anything from those cartoons they would be dead or very injured. It is our job as parents to teach them the right from wrong and that the cartoons are just fictional and people really can't fly ;)

It is all about education my friend, Teach the new players about safety and then fictional cartoons can be just that, fictional, and funny :)

OK I am off of my Soapbox, who's up?

So I was watching The Road Runner the other day and I saw the Coyote strap himself to a rocket and put on some roller skates, should they take that off TV because if you did that to yourself it would be harmful? He also sat in a huge catapult that launched him right into the ground, wow didn't know this show promoted such violet and harmful acts, maybe we should start a petition to get it taken off TV.

One other thing, you say you aren't directing it at me, yet you quote me and tear apart every point I make.

I also added a disclaimer if that makes you any happier.

Lastly I agree with Dan, whether he was joking or not. I know how it is not to be able to do what you do and have to sit at home all day long. I've been through it, its rough.
