the oncoming storm wrote:F*** the police
I burst out laughing when I read this. Did anyone else immediately think of the N.W.A. song? Looks like oncoming storm's going gangsta, hahahaha. Sorry, I can't help it.
But yeah, a good thing to remember is that the police never think it's as funny as you do. Though with that said, sometimes it seems like the police are hated more than the criminals in this wonderful society of ours. I mean, there are definitely bad cops (especially in big cities), but many of them are just doing their job of protecting the public. Even if it means being a nuisance when we're trying to have water wars in abandoned buildings. The police system is also rather flawed, but it seems nobody running this country knows how to fix problems, so...
Now back to the topic at hand. I still do not think that we could get new members out of random people in a huge soakfest. Maybe a couple of 'em will sign up, and perhaps even make a post or two, but if we actually get one "good" (active) member from that, I would be more shocked than I was when I found out that Hasbro was bringing back motorized blasters. I just don't think it's worth risking my ass in the Traffic From Hell. I mean, if most of ya'll really want to throw something together, go ahead. The best of luck to you. I'm just saying that if I were coming from far away, I'd rather spend money to go to a full-blown community war.
martianshark: I know there were a few members living in CA a while back, but I think most of them left. I really want to go there sometime though; I'll be happy to meet up/fight with ya when I do. (Probably not for a little while yet.)
