Topics I've Started

Fuck today.

16 August 2012 - 09:04 PM

So, today had some great potential. Oh yeah, Football practice actually started. We did stuff on the field today, was in a great mood. Then life decided to say "Fuck you!"

First, about halfway through practice I got a gnarly fucking cramp in my quadriceps, took me out for a good hour before I could even fucking walk again. Fuck you cramps!

Second, My jaw starts popping really bad every time I open my mouth wide. Which sucks, because I had a dentist appointment right after practice. Fuck you jaw!

Third, I go to my dentist appointment and have 5 out of 6 cavities taken out and filled. Fucking Ow. Yeah, I should brush my teeth better, fuck you, I took terrible care of them as a child and I'm paying for it now. I'm taking better care now. Fuck you childhood me, and Fuck you tooth decay!

Then, right after THAT, My dentist tells me I have a possible infection, and I might need surgery. Fuck you infectious things!

oh, and I'm still numb from all the numbing shit they gave me. They gave me a lot, no joke. I feel funny, and it's difficult to eat/drink. Fuck this shit, I had bratwursts tonight too. I'm sad, and just really annoyed at the shit that happens to me. I could've made this one of my famous >9000 paragraph rants, but I don't give a fuck to type that much.

TL;DR: Fuck you, it's not that long read it.

Making paintball easier to follow

30 July 2012 - 01:55 PM

So, I've seen a few too many threads talking about paintball on TV/Olympics/X-games etc. And one of the things that always comes up (That I've noticed) is that paintball is really hard to follow and show on TV or a webcast. So, I thought it would make for a good discussion. What do you guys think should happen to make paintball an easier sport to follow? Now, it could be a completely new format, adding/removing certain things or anything you want really!

Just to be clear, this is ONLY referring to paintball being easier to watch and follow for a random person on the street. Not on how to bring more people into the sport or whatever (No ramping, lower ROF that stuff.) I just want to know what you guys think would help the sport be easier to watch. If you don't think it can, say why!


I'll start off I guess. I think it would be great if we could use cameras on the players to "live-stream" footage. We could have the screen split or have a little section pop up (sort of like a "Picture in picture" thing) if a player gets into an intense gun fight that would be pleasing to watch. Or why not the two players that are involved in it? The live-streaming would also be nice for replays, say a player makes a big move, we could see it from his perspective almost seconds after. IMO, the R7 is a step in the right direction for this.

Of course, there ARE problems to this. It would be difficult to get an HD camera to stream HD footage instantly onto a player. It would be really low quality, and probably not even be worth showing if we used something like a go pro, contour or the R7. Then you have the problem of syncing the cameras up with the players that are on the field at that time. One substitution and it might take a while to link it up. A new format could help though (longer games/points) and then, you have to have someone watching 10 cameras at once, and figure out who is who. Unless the players have their name and number in a corner or something, I don't know.

Well, I tried, Now I want to hear what you guys have to say.

T8 problems!

22 July 2012 - 07:02 PM

so, I had an irritating and depressing day. My T8 has been giving me problems. I was at the field today, when it decides to leak from the relief valve in the middle of the first game. Thought okay, no biggie I'll download the manual, I remembered seeing something about it. Tried to Adjust the screw in the back and it did virtually nothing. Okayy I thought, I guess I'll just strip it down and try to see if any o-ring are damaged.

This happens to be at a woodsball field, and my first time taking it apart. I wasn't thinking. Wellll I ended up opening the trigger assembly. It eventually got to the point where I didn't know how to put it back together. So, I played with a friends gun for the rest of the day (all of about 3 or 4 games...) and when I got home, watched a couple videos and looks at the manual on how to put it back together.

Well, I got it back together with no parts laying out like I did at the field. I noticed I kind of messed up one of the springs, but the trigger still returned just fine. So, I decided to test it. I put a fresh cartridge in the mag and oh! no leaks. Cool. Eject the mag, Put some paint in it, and go outside. I put the Mag in, and the leak started again. huh? So I tried shooting it to see if that would stop it, and it didn't shoot. Yes, safety off.

So, no I'm sitting here, pissed off, waiting for the video to upload so you guys can see and hopefully help me. If anyone knows what I did wrong, besides being an idiot, please help me. If anyone could make a dis-assembly/re-assembly (including the trigger assembly) video, I would love you. I'm lost here, I'm ready to give up. I don't know what's going on, because it worked fine just a few weeks prior... Please help me guys :(
