and I don't have much money to get 'em.

King Frogger and I have a Paintball scenario coming up at the end of september. Seeing as I don't want to get my ass shot off at night because I can't see I've been looking around for a reasonably priced (read cheap as dirt) 1 gen+ set. Yes yes I know 1st gen suck... however I would rather see very poorly as opposed to not at all :D . my question to you guys is where can I possibly get some and how good ( or in this case bad) are they.

Snipe if you have still have some buddies in supply $150 in beer can go a long way :D

Not gonna happen, BR.

Didn't you know that 'Stinger,' translated into hieroglyphics, means the exact, total opposite of 'peace'?

It's something to the effect of:

Stinger - "a force comprised of complete, utter disregard for any form of life, order or harmony, coupled with an innate desire to destroy, maim, and disintegrate any and all things or people in direct opposition of said force."

I might've paraphrased it a bit, but that's pretty much the word-for-word translation...

(Oh, and Stinger... you're welcome.)

No, Stinger and I were talking, he wanted me to steal a couple from the Pal's. I told him to go kill em all, take a couple and win the Nobel Peace Prize for finally bringing peace in the MidEast

To be honest, 3d generation NVG's pretty well blow too....

The 4th Gens- now they kick ASS.

Got 5 thou laying around Stinger?

If you want NVG's, i'd bet good money you can get em on ebay for dirt cheap.

Nah, Stinger mentioned something about a five-finger discount. And than explained what it meant.

Damn... yeah, I forgot about the dogs, Stinger. My bad.

Dogs are okay in Stinger's definition of "acceptable life forms". Dogs and people that refill his iced tea in a timely fashion... that's about it.

Russian NVGs are better than natural eyesight at night....but that's about as far as i'm willing to go there.

I hate to think that my staying alive means you think of me as a dog...

Bill

You could always fetch him his iced teas.

kingfrogger
17 Sep 03,, 16:28
LMAO... funny that you used the word 'fetch' there, Snipe.

He just got through saying he didn't want to be thought of as a dog... just a funny observance.

:LOL

Man, those two whack-each-other-in-the-head guys are funny... I could sit and watch them all day... them and the dancing banana.

All you have to do is copy the .gif and post it here as a picture.

I just had a thought...

I wanna see somebody (in a movie, possibly) driving a school bus back from a field trip. Maybe from the zoo or something.

Have the entire bus full of kids (gotta be like elementary school age or so...) singing some goofy song. That "Sponge Bob Squarepants" theme song, or "Barney" something would do nicely.

They're trucking along nicely, and the bus driver's some middle-aged overweight balding guy that's bouncing happily along with the kids, big smile on his face... when all of a sudden the driver gets some glint in his eye. The smile drops from his face instantly, and his eyebrow gets a slight crease in it.

Coming from almost nowhere it seems, the bus driver jerks the steering wheel hard to the left, spinning the back end around quickly. The entire bus begins to slide sideways, before tipping over and screeching down the middle of a 4-lane stretch of highway, broken glass and sparks everywhere.

That's about it, I just think it'd be kinda neat to see something like that... nobody's ever done it that I know of.

Why is it I get a mental image of Col McCoy? excluding the overweight part.

kingfrogger

LMAO!!! Perfect!!!!

Glad you were the first to post on that, Stinger... I'm pretty sure that some other forum members wouldn't have responded with the apparent "business as usual" attitude that you have.

Btw way we may not have any NVG's but we have WATER, the Camoflauge Camel packs just arrived.

Sweet... oh, and check your mail. The sound problem for the Extrapolator's been solved.

And PS - If you wouldn't mind, I wanna see if we can get that silver part on that Tippman either covered up or painted over or something, so it's not reflective. Not a big deal, just curious.

Simple question: Why would you wanna see that? What would have caused the bus to crash? Just out of nowhere the bus falls over and starts sliding down the freeway with little kids trspped inside? That's a bit freaky...
