Keep your balls to yourself

OK, this just isn't cool. Drive-by paintballings? Seriously? Oh yeah, hilarious. Especially since, as anyone who's ever been paintballing will tell you, those things fucking hurt! And, when hit in a sensitive spot, they can be downright dangerous. Like the incident report mentions, a few inches lower on that girl's face and she could have literally lost an eye. Yeesh.

To the drive-by paintball guys: keep 'em to yourself. I know you think you're hot shit and all, but there is a time and a place for that, and it ain't in the wee hours of the morning from the backseat of your friend's fly ride. I hope all your toys are confiscated. It's just silly. We have enough real crime to deal with these days anyway. Now go, find a paintball facility and get your wannabe machismo rocks off there by getting owned by a bunch of kids out for their friends bar-mitzvah.

Griping aside, don't forget that tomorrow is the last outdoor market of the year! It makes me a little misty eyed. I can't believe it's already November. It seems like just yesterday I was peddling my butt off, up and down hills, through long hot stretches of cornfields and sleeping on gym floors. But here we are, Halloween passed and staring down the barrel of winter. Gotta enjoy the milder weather while it lasts! I'll see you tomorrow morning on the square....
