    Thats lame. They show the one side of Nerf modding, all the random american kids whose aim is to be like their dads rifle. Real modding isn't just stick thumb tacks in the end.
    On another note, i was scrolling through the comments and i saw that Ryan Mcnumberz Commented.

    I was just about to post this when I saw you already had...
    They didn't show much of the positive sides of nerf only idiots and thumb tacks. Kids in my school and grade use thumb tacks and I continually tell them how stupid they are being. They get exited when their thumb tacks stick into chairs I don't dare introduce them to Titans of modding in fear of what they would do... Imagine a Titan firing thumb tack darts. Now this thread shouldn't be about criticising silly kids but safety and getting positive media attention.

    The thing is the majority of people in the world are retarded. Fact.
    This news story is really sad. You can see how the media is trying to sensationalise the danger in modifying these things, and the ignorance of the general population means that it will be believed. But then again, thats what news corporations do.

    I'm purely posting a comment as I can't watch the vid until I get home tonight from work. Though just speculate that in this post I am actually ridiculing stupid american kids...



    *Edit: Posting this so I can find it when I get home tonight that is... Stupid brain being in work (read: zombie) mode...

    I have to admit that that news report is just another example of decaying style of journalism in practice today.
    It's no longer about reporting the facts and informing people, it's now about capturing eyes onto screens/papers and making more money from that.

    Now you got a new batch of kids who previously had no idea that they could make silly dangerous mods to Nerf guns, are now highly interested in doing so and not having the mental capacity to figure out the consequences of doing so.
    (Yes, there will be a few who deserve it, but most don't.)

    I'm just going to say... welcome to the 21st century. Burocracy and over protectiveness prevails in our society and this is why we get news reports like this. I remember when I was in NSW and I was told the law 'If a structure is a meter or over, you are required to wear a harness' and 'children under 14 are not to climb step ladders'. And its all because we live in an age were if someone stuffs up everyone suffers, no matter how stupid or arbitrary it may seem. This is a result of suing as well. On the news report they mentioned how its not Hasbro's 'fault' that the modding occurs and that they have put warning labels and such on there guns. however, in actual fact Hasbro couldn't care less about the modding, however if they do not stick the warning labels onto the guns and someone has an accident with for example, sticking a pin in a dart and shooting it at there friend and hits there eye, if the warning labels wern't there Hasbro would be held liable and so the victim would be in there right, rather to sue the person who shot them, rather sue Hasbro, which has more money. There are other examples of this BULLSHIT! happening (excuse my French) such as the woman suing David Johns for someone harrasing her, the incident clearly wasn't David John's fault, however the woman sued them as they had a lot more money that the harrasor. Another example of the same bullshit is someone suing a tourist railway when they fell off a bridge on the railway line, and her case was that she fell off the bridge as a result of inadequate sign-age saying not to walk on the bridge. I think if things continue like they are, we will have warning signs on food saying to chew before swallowing as the person could choke, for without the signs the company would get sued for not having aduiquate signing. As for the affair with children sticking pins in there darts, I personally think that this stupidity is a result of younger generations as a result of being rapped up in bubble rap that they are to stupid to know that firing a sharp object at someone hurts. Kids these days are not allowed to do anything remotely hazardous and so don't learn there limits. As you can see burocracy and this whole system of suing flows in a circle, eventually we will have children who wont even know knives are sharp. We will also get these kids, that think that nothings ever there fualt. For example, they will be an asshole to everyone around them, and wonder why they have no friends, however because there parents don't tell them that no matter how hard you kick that little boy down the street in the face, he will never become your friend as a result of the parents getting this mentality through suing that its never there fualt. This little rant may seem a little out of order with grammar and swing to different topics very quickly, but I've tried to fit all my exxperience with this subject into a very small little summary, anyhow, I hope you all understand what I'm trying to say...

    OnTopic: In a country where airsoft is legalised why would they even do a news story on it unless they were out of material. CBS cbf'd finding anything worth presenting. I still don't understand how modifing is so bad, the blasters released are weak and obviously toys. There is more chance of death from warhammer than this.

    Yep. Also, I think Kanako's relationship and feelings for Keitaro in the Love Hina Again OVA is hot.

    I should be in gaol for my thoughts.

    A "very small little summary"? I'm going to sue you for grossly advertising your post as you've described which has given me eye damage.

    See you in the High Court (yes, I'm going all the way here).

    Mothic, normally I pm people who infringe upon our rules in regards to grammar and spelling, but your rant is so painful to read that you obviously think that proofreading must be just for fun. Have some consideration for others when you write so much. One huge paragraph, full of spelling errors and your topics switch so often, it's like reading the diary of a schizophrenic.

    MoTHic wrote:I'm just going to say... welcome to the 21st century. Burocracy and over protectiveness prevails in our society and this is why we get news reports like this. I remember when I was in NSW and I was told the law 'If a structure is a meter or over, you are required to wear a harness' and 'children under 14 are not to climb step ladders'. And its all because we live in an age were if someone stuffs up everyone suffers, no matter how stupid or arbitrary it may seem. This is a result of suing as well. On the news report they mentioned how its not Hasbro's 'fault' that the modding occurs and that they have put warning labels and such on there guns. however, in actual fact Hasbro couldn't care less about the modding, however if they do not stick the warning labels onto the guns and someone has an accident with for example, sticking a pin in a dart and shooting it at there friend and hits there eye, if the warning labels wern't there Hasbro would be held liable and so the victim would be in there right, rather to sue the person who shot them, rather sue Hasbro, which has more money. There are other examples of this BULLSHIT! happening (excuse my French) such as the woman suing David Johns for someone harrasing her, the incident clearly wasn't David John's fault, however the woman sued them as they had a lot more money that the harrasor. Another example of the same bullshit is someone suing a tourist railway when they fell off a bridge on the railway line, and her case was that she fell off the bridge as a result of inadequate sign-age saying not to walk on the bridge. I think if things continue like they are, we will have warning signs on food saying to chew before swallowing as the person could choke, for without the signs the company would get sued for not having aduiquate signing. As for the affair with children sticking pins in there darts, I personally think that this stupidity is a result of younger generations as a result of being rapped up in bubble rap that they are to stupid to know that firing a sharp object at someone hurts. Kids these days are not allowed to do anything remotely hazardous and so don't learn there limits. As you can see burocracy and this whole system of suing flows in a circle, eventually we will have children who wont even know knives are sharp. We will also get these kids, that think that nothings ever there fualt. For example, they will be an asshole to everyone around them, and wonder why they have no friends, however because there parents don't tell them that no matter how hard you kick that little boy down the street in the face, he will never become your friend as a result of the parents getting this mentality through suing that its never there fualt. This little rant may seem a little out of order with grammar and swing to different topics very quickly, but I've tried to fit all my exxperience with this subject into a very small little summary, anyhow, I hope you all understand what I'm trying to say...


    On the topic of suing.
    Theoratically, uin13/ice could sue CBS if they:
    a) dont reference him somewhere
    b)dont say anything like "video courtesy of uin13 on youtube.
    c) dont have anywhere where he is mentioned credits or such.
    d) didn't contact him to ask if they could use the video clip.



    Theoratically ^_^

    That just about the only thing i learned in IT while making a wiki page for school.
    Also, epic rant Mothic.

    Yep. Also, I think Kanako's relationship and feelings for Keitaro in the Love Hina Again OVA is hot.

    I should be in gaol for my thoughts.

    Ah but his face wasn't seen in the video so he can't sue CBS. Since they followed privacy guidelines.

    Plus I think the youtube TOS lets people reuse videos freely (at least I know the flickr one does)

    Nope. That could be anyone's voice. The news didn't identify who he was. There could be a million people in the world that has the same voice as him.

    A 16 year old that lives in a Mansion in the US, that makes hundreds of dollars more than he should on modified nerf guns. Why would he need to sue. Not to mention that he is a Youtube partner from making videos on his crappy macbook webcam.

    Surely UN13 has some form of intellectual ownership of his work. Or is there a clause in youtubes conditions that say by uploading the vid it becomes public property?

    I'd tip that he could sue, however it wouldn't be worth it in the end, as CBN is a huge company with millions of dollars to throw at the most pointless stuff imaginable. UN13 is 16 and is probably struggling to fuel his Nerf hobby besides the fact that he does have the income from it. Also I don't think his parents would be all that keen on him suing a billion dollar corporation.

    Also CBN didn't actually really use any of his work, and Youtube being public as stated earlier he has no real power over it...

    P.S my bad about my grammar Winterstrike it was pretty awful, I was in a bit of a rush when I typed that rant.

    Its not that it becomes public property, but it should be covered under fair use.

    Fair Use requires the original author to be cited, doesn't it?

    Does CBN actually cite it? My Flash player is being rather dodgy, so watching it just now is out of the question.
