Nerf fight video

Post by Spinner » Thu Aug 07, 2008 8:04 am

Saw this last night; I'd say it's one of the best videos I've seen online. It's scripted, of course, but still really fun to watch:

The Great Office War

Yep, Ben posted it earlier. But it's definitely fun and well-made (well-funded, too), so I might just watch it again. :cool:

Yep, we've seen this already. It's a shame Hasbro doesn't give their Super Soaker brand the same treatment, though, I suppose you can't use them in an office setting much.

The Nerf Vulcan is already out from what I know. If I remember correctly it was supposed to start appearing in August but some retailers on the west coast of the US put it out earlier. Overall the gun was as I expected--low powered, but still pretty nice. It's a shame they didn't make it even as powerful as their other automatic out right now, the Magstrike, but it does what it's supposed to.

I wouldn't be surprised because the PC(personal computer not pressure chamber) case is usually under the desk, and the monitor, keyboard, and mouse are on the desk. Keyboards and mice are cheap and if they get wet can be left to dry out, or if need be buy a new one. Monitors aren't as cheap but will still work if left to dry out.

Can't say that water + high voltage electrical appliances = safe.

If the appliances are off, there's no problem, although you still have to wait for everything to dry before running electric current through them. People have even recommended dishwashing keyboards.

But it's hard to imagine that everything is off in a room full of cubicles. I suppose you could cut the circuit breaker, but then the lights would probably go, too. :p

Still, it's probably better than using such a gun in a LIBRARY, which I heard happened once. The person responsible got in some deep shit for that.
