Title: LAN- SAT 24th SOUTH CAMPUS
Post by: Jeebuz on November 20, 2007, 02:34:24 AM
Hey Guys, there's gonna be a LAN on the 24th at south campus, starting 4:00. Not sure on numbers yet, but there are tables and chairs galore, so chances are you will have alot of nice space to yourselves.

Games played will include:

Call of Duty 4
Day of Defeat
World in Conflict
Gun Game (counter strike mod)
Dawn of war+expansions
Company of heroes
Warcraft III




IF you have the latest patched versions of these games, bring the patches with you, otherwise nobody can play. And that would be sad.

For some reason I keep thinking of NERF toys... I think it's just a mispelling. :P Otherwise, I also ask for the solution to the mystery.

NERF = Never Ending Reduction of Functionality.

Used to refer to something hardcore that has been softened up in order to ensure that the general populace doesn't hurt themselves- for example by sticking a dart into their eye.

The logic behind NERFing something is that its next to impossible to stop people from doing something stupid, so you might as well make them do it in a padded environment.




EDIT: Hence Kyles NERF bat and Alex's NERF Sword. They each own a real bat and real sword, but all they really want is to hit someone.

the trick is to wrap as much foam around the real bat. Then no one knows the differ. :)

why don'tthey make nerf frizbees? at least then you'd be free from the phallic connotations of wacking each other with foam covered cylinders.

Wow, it's amazing that they don't make NERF frisbees, considering they have an abundance of footballs and other 'throwable' objects. Oh well, there's always Wahu for that... just without the NERF(!) foam fun. :-X
