    Never tried paint balls. I have tried pellet guns in my youth and real semi-automatic rifles in the Cdn Army Reserve. They were interesting at the time, but I am now too safety conscious to consider such activity "fun".

    Two teenagers in Toronto were recently charged for shooting a toddler with a pellet gun. The small pellet entered an eye of the child and lodged in his brain. The teenagers will likely go to jail and the child will be crippled for life.

    Well, we played. Until 3:30am. Got our butts whooped.

    But, I had a lot of fun, which was more than I thought I would.

    Good lord.

    I suppose paintball could be fun, but I might change my mind if or when I try it.

    I'm such a whimp, not sure if I'd like paintball or not cause I've never tried...but honestly it doesn't seem like that much fun to me. Guess it's from seeing too many of my friends bruised to all get out from it.

    I admit how nerdy I am now tho...I used to be completely and totally addicted to "laser tag". There used to be a place in downtown Orlando that you could go play at...indoors, totally dark with just black lights, small teams, and you'd play for 5-10 minutes a shot....dang I miss Q-Zar!! I actually used to play nearly nightly, and most of the time for free as well which was a big perk (I seem to remember them having ladies specials where you could play free if you went in with a guy, but I was friends with the people that worked there after a while, so all I remember is playing for free when they'd need a single person just to finish off a team). I was really good at being a sniper and just finding a safe place to hide near the home base for our team and wiping out the opponents. This is making me REALLY want to take a trip down to the only laser tag place that I know of in town and catch a game...hmmmm wonder if any of my friends' kids would be interested, think I'm gonna have to ask.

    AH HEM!!!!! John, I would be more than happy to go in your place. Being an afficianodo of the entertainment of female clothing removal, I believe I would make a fantastic stand in.

    I just about wrote something similar about an hour ago and I was too embarrassed I'm glad I'm not the only person on here who used to be a nut about it. My friends and would dress all in black and head out. We probably looked like a group of jewel theives looking for the next target or goths looking for a party. I was a great sniper too, and usually finished in the top five when it was individual competition. We had a lot of fun and it was great for taking out agressions.

    I would LOVE to play paintball, however I am afraid I'm far too delicate. I've been told you leave the game with welts and bruises that stick around for a while. Which, for me, translates into broken ribs, not to mention limbs. The paintballs look like huge marbles to me, and I have no doubt they hurt. Okay, so I'm a girl. Cut me some slack. Sure does look like furn, tho. (Unless you are playing with my ex, who for some reason doesn't understand a time out and tries to ambush the other team like a maniac. I'm so glad I wasn't there.)

    If you care to share, John, I for one would love to hear more details.
