It all comes down to people associating gun=pain and death. Or the other side with vandalism and delinquency being a part of the media's image of this sport.

you could also use short interviews from local ballers, and why they were first scared to play. You could also use the waiver that your arena gives you because most say that you may possible die.

To be honest, you could have picked something much easier to write a paper on. Paintball is a rather hard topic to write a decent paper on because paintball lacked everything needed for a good paper: good, reliable sources, recognition, and past works.

For example, let's say I am writing a paper why Legalizing Marijuana is difficult, I will need the following.

A record of past attempts to legalize marijuana and why it failed
What got in the way of the legalization process (ex: the politicians who were involved)
What are the politicians' argument against marijuana? (ex: speeches, statements)
Organizations that opposed to marijuana legalization and who are allied with them
Papers and medical reports that these anti-marijuana activists used to legitimize their argument

I am going to write a book on the terrible time I have at my old field where I don't work anymore.

I think writing a paper on Paintball is really hard because of the lack of sources. But you could use sites like the ford report and propaintball. good info yet not the best sources for a paper.

Its a weekday. I wake up and go to school. I get teased for being weird. I know every anwser to the test but decide to forget them. I get turned down for a date. I get home, listen to people screaming constantly. My brother is crying because he lost his game, my mom blames me and tells me to find it even though I never tuched it. I go to bed after eating fried food I hate. I go to sleep to repeat the cycle. Now its a weekend. I show up to the field. For the next 5 hours Im a god.

Yet another thread of some kid trying to get others to do his homework. Are you serious?

It is somewhat paintball related.

It doesn't matter. He's asking people to do his research for him. It's dishonest, and extremely wrong.

Thread: Closed.
Reason: The topic of TechPB is not to do your homework for you. Research is part of the assignment, and you will need to learn to do that, too.
