liquid Curiosity

Well, a yes or no question. Can we use special liquids, like soda, as a trap, not ammunition, in a water war? Like a decoy, if you will.

Is there any possible way that you can make the war in NC on the 23rd? I honestly don't really care, although certain substances may damage or gunk up your blasters. I have shot people with liquids other than water before...

The only war so far I'd go to is downpour or later. Sorry, just not ready yet for a full road trip and war on a school week.

Yeah, I figured it would be a longshot. In the past, my team and I used mountain dew and other liquids as ammo for pranks and also actual serious attacks. Of course, we were somewhere in the 11 - 13 year old range had some serious beef with the people we were fighting. I think of all of us respect each other here, which is one reason why I'd never use ammunition other than water.

I don't stand against using other liquids in general, but situationally I would never use er biological warfare on my current enemy :lol:

If I'm low on water and you're chasing me at Waterbridge and I get to a refilling spot and all there is, is the orange fungus water...well...there's no other choice but to load it. So, don't back me into a corner at Waterbridge and you'll be ok :p

I remember a war many years ago at my friends house. It was me and him vs. his jerk brother and his brothers friend. They lobed a barrage of balloons at us and when they popped (thankfully we dodged them all) the liquid was yellow. and I'm telling you it wasn't lemonade!

I myself would never put anything but water in one of my guns. I'm paranoid enough filling from streams! Though it would probably take an acorn to jam my 2500, that doesn't stop my from worrying about it.

The check engine light on my car came on:
The real reason - a hole in some part that doesn't even matter.
My thought on it - One of the pistons could explode at any moment causing the drive train to seize up, locking the wheels. Then the car would skid into a curb, flip over 6 times, and then crash into a gas station and blow up. - My imagination it a bit overactive, though it does mean I can write some great stories for creative writing class.

When I hear the use of soda as a trap as opposed to ammunition, I start thinking of the following:
Trap Maker: I'll leave this can o' soda here. MWAHAHAHHAA
*Trap Maker hides nearby*
Unsuspecting Player: Oooh! A free can of soda! *open can* Mmmm.. my favorite.
*Trap Maker emerges from hiding spot, blasting away*
Trap Maker: HAHAHAHA!! My soda trap worked!
Unsuspecting Player: Aww,.. but I couldn't resist the cool, refreshing flavor of [insert soda name here]. Now I'm refreshed on the inside AND outside!
*Cue logo and soda maker music*

Now, soda as a stepping-trap isn't going to be that great, IMO, and just lead to more mess, but no real added value. As for using other liquids in water blasters, apart from the gumming up-promoting mould/mildew, etc. issue, I wouldn't be keen of getting any non-water liquid into other people's faces. Carbonated drinks are typically more acidic than regular water used and would sting quite a bit more. Water wars are for soaking people, not injuring. Hence, my water-only policy. As for where water can come from, that all depends on the cleanliness of the sources. I'd be open to some rivers and lakes being used (I'd be game with most water I'd be willing to swim in), but would not use swamp/stagnant water or other sources that may be contaminated with higher amounts of bacteria that can cause illness.

You too?!

As for liquids other than water, I can't say that I'd like having weird shit fired at me. At the moment, I can't think of a single non-water liquid that I wouldn't mind getting shot with. Really, water is the by far the easiest liquid to obtain, so I don't see why you'd use anything else. It is a water war after all.

Whaaa...? ...Oh. At first I had absolutely no idea what you were talking about, haha. If you're bothered by swearing, I'll try not to do it, but I'm telling you that quite a few people on here do it (and if you go to school, pretty much everybody does it). Personally, I don't see how anyone could be offended by nothing but a specific combination of letters; I understand it's offensive if the swear is directed at a person, but I don't think that's any different than calling that person an idiot. That's just my opinion though.

Hmm... I'd like to try, at a water war somewhere that 2L water bottles were being used as refill stations, to pop a couple of Alka-seltzer tablets into a bottle and screw it tight as fast as possible... I seem to remember a single tablet being enough to make a film capsule explode... or maybe just buy a bottle of soda water, shake like crazy, and remove the label...
As for super soakers, yeah I'm pretty paranoid about using anything other than liquid H20 with an acceptably low ppm of other substances.

Considering this is on the internet, our board is already quite good for minimizing curse words. That said, with this board, while we don't encourage swearing (there are usually better ways to phrase things), we don't ban it outright either.

Not sure about anyone else, but I wouldn't be too keen on being drenched in fizzy drink. Soooo sticky! :goofy:

Thats what I want to do too.......***LINK REMOVED***
That's the only water gun I'd actually do it on. (that I have) Definitely something a teen like me would do.
I like the Alka-selzter idea too, I might try that. But it works better with baking soda, I'm told. I heard that you want to do that outside otherwise you might get a hole in your roof when you do it with a film canister.

Missed some content earlier which has now been removed.

Ok, just a reminder to people here so seem to forget, talk of use of water blasters for things that can be rather dangerous or even life threatening if not done with real care is strictly forbidden here. If you want to discuss those topics, great, just not here.
