Have not listened to the episode but am immediately delighted by the name/opening song choice.

Please have this not at all suggestive commercial as a token of my approval:

Also I never get tired of youths trying to tell stories. It's always just so. Silly.

I wonder how many things of my youth could have turned into an obsession if I had modern-day internet back then.

God, the isoaker.com site is quite an eyesore. I viewed it on mobile, so I'd imagine it's better on a desktop? But otherwise, I like sites which utilise screen space well, so I totally dig how inconsistent the site is on that factor depending on which part of the site you're on.

I can see why adult men who play with nerf guns in public parks and college campuses denigrate squirt gun people.

I absolutely love the Super Soaker stand up bit. I'm surprised at how well the episode turned out. I'm a toy collector, and most toy forums boil down to a bunch of adults determined not to have any fun.

This was in my head the whole episode. These people would be fine if they didn't take themselves so seriously and realized they're doing something that kids do just for fun.

MasterOfHope, July 25, 2019, 06:18:37 pm
Well, to be fair, they're doing these things exactly the same way kids do them, which makes it even more ridiculous. When you're a kid, you do stuff like this and you put your all into it and devote time to figuring out water war strategies and comparing squirt gun stats because you're like 12 and you haven't had time to create a fully realized personality yet.

The editing around the open mic night bit was just amazing.  Really well done.  Probably the best bit since the game show in "the rites of price" These guys reminded me a lot of the flashlight fuckers. i kept waiting for fiction or sex but it never came, and that made it so much more frightening

Post by: EYE OF ZA on July 27, 2019, 08:29:16 pm
This struck me as one of the sites where there's probably two groups: one group is the actual children (okay, probably like 14 year olds) who for whatever reason have stuck themselves onto squirt guns and use it as a vehicle for being nerdy the way teenagers will do about any interest they have, and the other group was those 14 year olds but they got stuck there and now as adults get into forums drama about squirt guns.

Besides love for the open mic night (and Achilles role as a very supportive parent), the sound editing for the first part of the naruto war story is great too.

these guys all write in more grandiose detail and description than my friends who have been to actual war

Side note:

for anyone who thought “ I wonder if the guys at Hasbro or Laramie know about how intense the nerd culture is around their product”-—

I asked my neighbor, a VP at Hasbro. He said not only does he know how obsessive these guys can get, he or his office get between 50 and 100 emails a week from squirtgun/NERF obsessives in varying levels of hatred or pure creep-o sexuality

he’s since set up automatic flags for certain names, nerf or squirtgun styles, and certain keywords

I wish I could have seen the emotional journey from "Oh hey, it's my good neighbor KendrickLobstar" to "Super soaker fans? Oh no are they one of them?" to "Oh thank god, someone else knows what I go through."

Have there been any squirt gun kickstarters? I’ll be shocked if no one has tried to capitalize on this niche yet (aside from, you know, actual toy companies).

Also, this episode was great and made me want to outside play with some squirt guns like I’m 8 again.

Who else immediately read those squirt gun icons as bacon?


EDIT: Also I'm surprised that filling a squirt-gun with pee or some other gross fluid never came up because that's usually how The Water Wars ended in my neighborhood.

Piss is verboten. It will clog the tubes and you'll have to spend time suctioning and jabbing a paper clip or a knitting needle into the firing port. Do not disgrace the $200 Das Squirtgun with your disgusting body fluids

When I was twelve I was one of those kids who thought that water guns were awesome and had dumb opinions about which ones were better. Even at twelve I don't think I was half as obsessed or dedicated as any of these people.
