I was reading something yesterday and I thought that this is definitely the best paintball gun for a hilarious mess. There was a guy named Wafaa Bilal that wanted to do an experiment on dehumanization.


This guy moved into his living room to stay their 24/7 for 30 days. He also rigged up a paintball gunhttp://www.assoc-amazon.com/e/ir?t=bespaigun-20&l=as2&o=1&a=B000IBEY12 that allowed people on the internet to shoot at him. This is the funniest thing I’ve heard in a long time. I wanted to share some snippits of the interview:


How many times have you been hit?


I lost count how many times I’ve been hit, but, as I said, today the count is up to 6,500 shots. I think day 13 - today - I entered kind of a survival mode, trying to protect myself by barricading myself and navigating through the room so that I’m not in the direct line of fire. But that does not mean I don’t forget that I am facing the gun 24 hours a day, and it happens so many times I forget for a second, and get hit.


Yesterday I got two of them really close to my head, and I do not wear any head protection except goggles, just because I wanted to feel that danger from the gun that’s pointed at me.

I’m not sure if I’d take the time to reload the gun. Over 6,500 rounds have been shot at him and he’s only wearing goggles. He’s not even wearing a full paintball mask.


Even though shooting a man with a paintball gun over the Internet probably won’t kill him, it seems to me to be more than art - but also a psychological test about the human condition. People who choose to aim and fire the gun at him are doing so knowing that they hurt him - but either they show no remorse when they inflict pain - a hypothesis that I’m not keen to accept but would be foolish to dismiss - or because the distance and remoteness of the location “on the Internet” is dehumanizing

I just find this so hilarious. I’m not sure why this guy thinks he’s going to prove anything, but I do thank him for giving me this hilarious story to post. I think this definitely needs to be added to the hall of fame of the best paintball gun. The original article is here.
