God was fed up. In a crash of thunder He yanked three influential men up to
Heaven: Bill Clinton, Boris Yeltsin and Bill Gates. "The human race is a
complete disappointment," God boomed. "You each have one week to prepare your
followers for the End of the World." With another crash of thunder they found
themselves back on Earth. Clinton immediately called his cabinet. "I have good
news and bad news," he announced grimly.
"The good news is that there is a God. The bad news is that He's really mad and
plans to end the world in a week."
In Russia, Yeltsin announced to parliament, "Comrades, I have bad news and worse
news. The bad news is that we were wrong; there is a God after all. The worse
news is that He's mad and is going to end the world in a week."
Meanwhile, Bill Gates called a meeting of his top engineers. "I have good news
and better news. The good news is that God considers me one of the three most
influential men on Earth," he beamed. "The better news is that we don't have to
fix WINDOWS 95.

im  12, i play paintball and have never had a problem with people treating me
badly. I notice peopple at a paintball field are alot nicer than the general
public (with the exception of someone my age with a 1000$***er cortuesy of
his dad)  I see no reason for age limits espexially yhe pain idea.  Ive been
shot point blank in the stomach after i was out and after much pain, got up and
played the next game. That was the only painfu;l shot ive ever had, and i dont
expext that is very common.

21 to play paintball? are you freaking psycho? The paintball industry
doesn't rely on the younger kids
but i'm 18 and i just got started, about to buy a spyder tl for 165,
are you telling me that the paintball
industry doesn't want my money? not only will i say your psycho, every
paintball marker maker will too
plus what the ***do you mean the pain? i read a post that some guy
said and i agree with we go to war
if we are 18 why can't we play paintball? besides i love it, and you'll
never get full support for such an idea.
I'll play you on the field any day any time, i'm sure i'll take it and
go on with my life, but can you handle
being shot by somebody younger than you?  Will that kill your ego? Get
a life bud, or better yet, get some better
YOUNGER competition. See how we play and you might change your mind.

Yeah realy im 14 years old (turning 15 in september) and i started playing
paintball as soon as i could (at age 12 in my state).I love the sport and think
that if someone is able to go out there be hit with 1 or 2 paintballs (or in my
case like 10 paintballs at once) and take it without crying they should be able
to play with who they want,where they want,and when they want.Well i totally
agree with silverspyder.Well thats my opinion so dont flame me for it.

As I have stated before, I DO NOT agree with the original poster, but I
do respect the right for him to have an opinion (informed or otherwise).
I did not expect this outright animosity. Do you get frustrated when
someone you play with expresses an opinion that is contrary to yours?

As for posting, if you don't want to read what I have to say, then skip
over the post, put me in a killfile, or whatever. Newsgroups are
available so people can express their knowledge AND opinions. Its rather
obvious that you don't like my "worthless crap", but that does not
change my right or ability to continue this discussion further.

Actually, I'm not tracking any further discussion here. It seems clear
that it is only paving the way for insults on my character, and the
chance for intellectual discussion has long past. Good bye, and enjoy
your next game!

I've seen players - from the ages of 8 to 35 - cry after getting hit.

On the other hand, its just a generally good, all around policy to restrict
certain activities to ***s.  If we don't, the next generation won't have
anything to look forward to or complain about!  :)

Tell that to my 14-year old son who got me started in the game six months ago.
Him and his friends proudly show off their "tatoos" and laugh at the ones dad
got, or they gave dad.  (I got to learn to duck faster!!).  I enjoy playing
with the younger crowd.  Their enjoyment and enthusiasm is infectious and is
what the "game" is all about.  Besides, they teach an old dog new tricks!!!

Being a six*** year old myself i have never cried onces after getting shot,
and i've been shot from a foot and a half away under my ear where my mask
didn't cover.    Maybe you should think about your statement of only peopel 21
and older should play because you would eliminate a good chunk of the players
in the sport.

I would think that ***s would love having kids playing at an early age (since
most of them started at a young age themselves).The spost is just so awesome
that anyone including kids who start playing will about 99% of the time will
keep playing for many years keeping the sport alive.I started when i was able
to legally play (12 years old here in New Hampshire) and i loved it.I am now 14
turning 15 and still love playing the sport.I have had my tough breaks but
still play.If you can take the hit/s and play the next game without crying you
should be able to play as much as you want...

         ----------------------------------------

          It`s my opinion,don`t flame
                    me for it!

Anyone can make a general statements about kids and paintball. Kids or
***s there still has to be a level of control when there on the field of
play. I have had good games playing against kids they tend to have more
energy whilst they be trying to kill me.
