As silly as this sounds, some of us here seem to get into a lot of fights of honor. In order to keep it from cluttering up other threads... (any more!), we will do duel here from now on. :D

The Supreme Canuck
2003-Jul-14, 07:52 AM
Ah, good! *Sharpens swords and cleans pistols*

Humphrey
2003-Jul-14, 07:53 AM
I will challenge anyone to a pistol fight!

Musashi
2003-Jul-14, 07:54 AM
:x

I don't know what that one means, but it looks funny!

The Supreme Canuck
2003-Jul-14, 07:56 AM
Musashi: It means angry.

Humphrey: Maybe in the morning...

Humphrey
2003-Jul-14, 07:58 AM
yah, tired. beddy time for me now. *yawn*.


Pistol fight rules: A time is set according to the board time. The people will show up at that time and first one to post wins.

Musashi
2003-Jul-14, 08:00 AM
Yeah Humphrey, your spelling has begun to get even worse! (haha, this is the right thread for that cuz them are fightin words!)

Well, I guess this is one way to work your way up through the BABB ranks. :roll:

Humphrey
2003-Jul-14, 05:09 PM
:-) Post cound doesn't matter. Its whats in them and the relationship b/t people. (but at the rate i am going, i will have to think of a new name soon) :o

The Supreme Canuck
2003-Jul-14, 06:01 PM
Musashi! Duel's on! Pistols!

Humphrey
2003-Jul-14, 06:10 PM
I would like to reform the Duling with pistols rule. After the two dulers agree on what time to duel, the first person to post after that time wins. If it is a tie, the first person to post wins. If someone posts early, It does not coun't. Only shots after the tim e given. (the 1 min mandatory posting wait on the board can be you reloading or re aiming).

So say two people decide to shoot at 5:00 board time (and remeber about different time zones, so adjust acordingly!!!). One person shoots at 4:59 and the next at 5:00. The 5:00 wins. If both shoot at 5:00, the firts to post wins. If one shotos at 5:59, and the next at 6:00, 5:59 wins. get it?

The Supreme Canuck
2003-Jul-14, 06:11 PM
Simple enough...

2003-Jul-14, 08:12 PM
Would I have to put on my fencing stuff if it was that kind of duel? That'd get really hot. ;)

The Supreme Canuck
2003-Jul-14, 08:30 PM
Not if it's a pistol fight. Good luck with a foil or an epee if the other guy has a gun. :o

xbck1
2003-Jul-14, 08:41 PM
Uh, um... erm. :o Really good point. 8-[

The Supreme Canuck
2003-Jul-14, 08:42 PM
Bring Kevlar and a helmet.


:o


And a gun. You'll need a gun.

xbck1
2003-Jul-14, 08:51 PM
A big gun. Maybe one of those guns that the army is testing tht shoots sticky foam. I'd hate to kill any of you guys.

The Supreme Canuck
2003-Jul-14, 08:52 PM
How about one of those taser grenade launchers. Those're fun! :o

man on the moon
2003-Jul-14, 08:53 PM
i would take a cork-pop gun :D

The Supreme Canuck
2003-Jul-14, 08:55 PM
Too dangerous.

<Motherly voice>

You'll put out your eye!

without the string? please mommy? please?

------*thinks about it*-------

ok. how about a nerf gun with those foam ball thingies?

Humphrey
2003-Jul-14, 09:10 PM
Super soaker?

The Supreme Canuck
2003-Jul-14, 09:13 PM
Soak the nerf ball with water. Would that even fire?

xbck1
2003-Jul-14, 10:59 PM
You know, my dad once had this water gun thing that could literally make your eye pop out if it got shot with it. Needless to say, it was powerful. :D

xbck1
2003-Jul-14, 11:04 PM
Wasn't this thread about dueling originally? What ever happened to that?

Humphrey
2003-Jul-14, 11:05 PM
Nobody has dueled yet. We have to wait for someone to get mad at someone else.

xbck1
2003-Jul-14, 11:09 PM
From the way things are going, I don't think that'll happen soon. Not technically a bad thing, but it could still be entertaining.

Humphrey
2003-Jul-14, 11:44 PM
well there are always practice duels. :-)

Musashi
2003-Jul-14, 11:47 PM
I am really bad with punctuality, so I would probably lose all my duels! :-? Besides, I can't be mad at TSC, he's a Canadian, he can't help it! :D

Musashi
2003-Jul-15, 12:13 AM
I see that the trecherous Humphrey has betrayed me! :x Well, then pick a time and we will settle this once and for all! (I am in the PST also known as GMT -7 hours)

Musashi
2003-Jul-15, 12:14 AM
In case I am not around, someone PM me and I'll magically show up!

man on the moon
2003-Jul-15, 12:14 AM
i'm assuming you're talking about how he went to the canadian...i'm still here if it helps!

Musashi
2003-Jul-15, 12:16 AM
Yes, those canadians are tricky, but they make good fighters (well, the French Canadians like Laperrier anyway!). Us Americans have to stick together. And my mom is from Michagin, so I guess I am half Michiginianderian too! :D

Us Americans have to stick together. And my mom is from Michagin, so I guess I am half Michiginianderian too!:D

Michiginianderian. how the heck do you pronounce that? never realized i was such a...yeah. interesting. funny though. and original! got to give you kudos for being original.

there's something of a civil war in Michigan over whether it's Michiganian or Michigander. this is the first time i've ever heard Michi---yeah. what you said!

on the Canadian--at first i thought he was French...that would have made it easy. :P

he aint though...tough boogers those fur tradin Canucks...

Humphrey
2003-Jul-15, 12:48 AM
O.K. Musashi! Lets go for it! how about 12:00 midnight Easterm. it is 8:47 P.M. here for me.

Musashi
2003-Jul-15, 01:07 AM
Ah heck, I thought I was figthing that lousy TSC, but I'll take whatever I can get I guess! :D That would be 9PM for me, OK. (I cannot gaurauntee that I'll be here, with real life and stuff. My girlfriend has been feeling neglected lately :D )

The Supreme Canuck
2003-Jul-15, 02:47 AM
Hey if he doesn't show up, can he still get shot?

Musashi
2003-Jul-15, 02:50 AM
Yeah, if Humprhey doesn't show up, he will still get shot! :D

The Supreme Canuck
2003-Jul-15, 02:52 AM
Oh! No problem then, carry on! :D

Musashi
2003-Jul-15, 03:46 AM
I bet Humphrey has been using this time to sync his clock to the BABB clock down to the millisecond, just so he can't lose. :D

The Supreme Canuck
2003-Jul-15, 03:47 AM
Maybe you should do the same... :D

Musashi
2003-Jul-15, 03:53 AM
I gave it my best shot....heh, "shot", get it! :D

Musashi
2003-Jul-15, 03:54 AM
He probably set up some kind of script to post exactly at the right time. Then he probably went to a movie or something, while I am stuck here waiting to get shot at!

The Supreme Canuck
2003-Jul-15, 03:57 AM
Where is he anyway? 3 minutes to go...

Musashi
2003-Jul-15, 04:00 AM
Bang!

The Supreme Canuck
2003-Jul-15, 04:00 AM
Musashi wins!!!

Hey, where's Humphrey?

Musashi
2003-Jul-15, 04:01 AM
Maybe I did the math wrong...

The Supreme Canuck
2003-Jul-15, 04:01 AM
Nope, it's midnight EST.

Musashi
2003-Jul-15, 04:02 AM
Know what would be even funnier? If you and I were supposed to duel! :D

The Supreme Canuck
2003-Jul-15, 04:02 AM
Uh-oh. Did he adjust for daylight savings? The board doesn't...

The Supreme Canuck
2003-Jul-15, 04:04 AM
Know what would be even funnier? If you and I were supposed to duel! :D

I thought about that for a second and actually went back to read who was supposed to duel... not me! :)

O.K. Musashi! Lets go for it! how about 12:00 midnight Easterm. it is 8:47 P.M. here for me.

Well, That's a 3 hour time difference between his time and what the board says in my time.

The Supreme Canuck
2003-Jul-15, 04:09 AM
:o What the heck... I think Humphrey doesn't have his time set correctly. Boy will he be surprised when he finally shows up and reads this thread. :D

Musashi
2003-Jul-15, 05:07 AM
And bang again, just in case.

The Supreme Canuck
2003-Jul-15, 05:08 AM
Every hour, on the hour? :D


Gosh, I hope he's okay...

Musashi
2003-Jul-15, 05:11 AM
Well, I wanted to make sure he wan't just one hour off (or I wasn't), and I'm struttin around all proud, and in he comes and down I go!

The Supreme Canuck
2003-Jul-15, 05:17 AM
:-s Huh?

Musashi
2003-Jul-15, 05:19 AM
I might have done the math wrong or in some other way made a mistake that would have meant that I showed up to the duel 1 hour early, and then, while I was gloating, he could have showed up at the proper time and shot me dead!


Rule addendum: All duel times shall be posted in GMT.

The Supreme Canuck
2003-Jul-15, 05:28 AM
Good idea.

Still, he was the one who said 12:00 am EST. I'm in the same timezone as him. You took your shot at 12:00 where I am. You did the math correctly. I think he just wimped out... :P

*Runs*

Musashi
2003-Jul-15, 05:42 AM
Humphrey, just so you know, I was aimin for your shootin hand, not to kill... :D

And, now you see why you shouldn't have switched to TSC's side!

Humphrey
2003-Jul-15, 05:52 AM
*grumble* You know just my luck?! At 10:30 tonight my apartment complex's internet went down. It just got back on!!! Arrggg.... :evil:

I found out that some moronic idiotic bumbling DumbA** who deserves a...well you gfet the idea. Well i found out that this moron had hacked the bandwith of the apatrment complex (t-3) line and he was pirating 90% of the bandwith. Well to counter this, the complex shut down the internet untill they could find him. I doubt they did. :evil:

Well, to be fair you did win. I was planing on beating you, but arrgggg.....


Just my luck!!! [grumbles and stumbles off into the kitchen]...

Musashi
2003-Jul-15, 06:48 AM
Well, if it makes you fell any better, I was getting kinda nervous. I was sure your absence was a plot. I even suspected that TSC was going to try to get me involved posting on another topic and make me miss the duel! I would offer to have a rematch, but I'd rather be friends! :D

Humphrey
2003-Jul-15, 07:19 AM
me too. :-) thanks for not killing me slowly.

Pinemarten
2003-Jul-16, 12:05 AM
I don't think it is worth dying for, so I shall again (humbly), admit defeat to the almighty Glom.

Humphrey
2003-Jul-16, 03:39 AM

OK, but first you should know: I love Monty Python with an unholy passion. I was joking. I am bulletproof. Well, ok, not the last one. :D

xbck1
2003-Jul-16, 04:02 AM
M for mature, PUH!!! I've played plenty of M rated games and seen gobs of R rated movies.

Besides, I'd just turn on the TV and go to ESPN and watch the live coverage. :D

Hey, i love monty python too! (they had some really fun computer games along with the funny movies. :-))

So why are we fighting?.....OH ya you called me somthing like stupid! So lets fight!

Um 12:30 a.m. Eastern time zone board time? (I would say your time zone, but don't know it.

Nice tank pic BTW! :)

Too bad it did you no good!

I have my clock set just a little slow, like 1 or 2 seconds.

Humphrey

Dang. All because i jumped the gun a few second early. :-(

I bow to the worthy contender.

But hey, my tank was better than yours.

I never give up. I am like the black knight! It is only a flesh wound. No matter how badly i am beeten,. i have no pride to demolish, so i keep on coming at you.

Humphrey
2003-Jul-17, 01:39 AM
I wan't to duel someone! I am sure we will find a reason sometime toonight!!! ;-)

Musashi
2003-Jul-17, 01:43 AM
Do you spell badly just to goad someone into correcting you so you can duel them? :D

Humphrey
2003-Jul-17, 01:49 AM
;-) nope, i just am that bad. :-)







Thats it, Its Deuling time!!! :evil:

To the Dueling thread! Oh wait, we are already here, so to the rules!!

How about Bazookas at 2 paces!

Musashi
2003-Jul-17, 02:31 AM
That's a great pic. If I ever see a bazooka up close, that's exactly what I want it to look like, not loaded!

Humphrey
2003-Jul-17, 02:42 AM
lol! That is right before my teamate (colt) loads it with armor piercing round. :-)

You will need a teamate for your bazooka. Choose carefully. Preferably one that will load it in backwords. :P

Musashi
2003-Jul-17, 02:57 AM
Why would Colt pick a loosing team? If we are fighting from 2 meters, then I don't think I even need to load my bazooka, one round will do quite well at blowing us all up! :D

Humphrey
2003-Jul-17, 03:04 AM
That is the secondary effect. Nobody knows who wins. :D

So, you up to it?

Musashi
2003-Jul-17, 03:20 AM
Ok, how about at whatever hour this is and 35 minutes ( I got 8:20 now), so in about 15 minutes? or ten if you want.

Musashi
2003-Jul-17, 03:32 AM
Or later. :D

Humphrey
2003-Jul-17, 03:35 AM
sorry was having dinner. :-)

how about 12:00 a.m. for me, 9:00 p.m. for you. 4 gmt.

And you have to pick a helper. :-) just naming is fine.

Musashi
2003-Jul-17, 03:38 AM
Ok, sounds good.

Um... man on the moon I choose y....wait. Since we are all going to bite it on this one, I pick TSC. I don't want to kill MOTM, he's been nice to me! :D

The Supreme Canuck
2003-Jul-17, 03:47 AM
Hey!

Oh well, I've had a good run. But I'll only help on the condition we use a Canadian weapon:

http://www.army.forces.gc.ca/lf/English/2_0_40.asp?uSubSection=40&uSection=2

Which should we use?


Ammunition:
FFV 551 HEAT - weight 3.2kg, range 700m
FFV 502 HEDP - weight 3.3kg, range 500m
TP 552 weight 3.2kg, range 700m (this is a non explosive round used for training)

Musashi
2003-Jul-17, 03:49 AM
The Gustav! OK! Just don't stand in the blast! (Not that it's going to matter :D )

The Supreme Canuck
2003-Jul-17, 03:50 AM
So. Which ammo type?

Musashi
2003-Jul-17, 03:51 AM
I don't know, you pick, you're loading! :wink:

The Supreme Canuck
2003-Jul-17, 03:53 AM
Alright, since range doesn't matter... we'll go with the FFV 502 HEDP. It's the biggest. :D

Hey, how's this work? When do I load? 11:59 EST?

Musashi
2003-Jul-17, 03:53 AM
Load it now!!

The Supreme Canuck
2003-Jul-17, 03:54 AM
Loading, loading, loading............. Done! Man that's a big round! :o

I will not do it again.

So are you!
