Talk about an over-reaction......

Discussion in 'The Intelligence Cell' started by box-of-frogs, May 7, 2009.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Germany bans paintballing!!!!!!!

    Torygraph linky

    Why????? :roll:

    Worth setting up a paintballing site right on the far side of the border?

    well, that will stop murderous rampages where the victims were felled in a hail of Dulux. :roll:

    tossers. it was on the tv before that they also apparently want to ban all violent computer games and films as these contribute to the problem.
    the fact that there is no provable link between the things doesnt seem to be mithering them that much. they clearly went to the same school of politics as Neu Arbeit.

    Seems a bit over the top doesn't it?

    None of the kids that have gone about massacring other schoolkids have done so expecting the other kids to shoot back at them.

    There is no parallel between paintballing, soft-air and the massacres in schools - leave the blame for that one to the computer games and television slaughters I think.
  4. Another gobment farting in a bottle just to show that they’re doing something. There was a similar kerfuffle around 2003 on exactly the same subject.

    However, for those conversant with the language, the Boxheeds are also discussing it, here:

    “Landegaard” gives this answer to the question: “Should Paintball (sometimes called “Gotcha” in Germany) be prohibited?”

    Ja natürlich, wie es auch eine richtige Entscheidung ist, Killerspiele zu verbieten. Ich würde noch den Grundwehrdienst verbieten, denn der befasst sich auch mit der Simulation des Tötens. Im nächsten Step bitte Filme verbieten, in denen getötet wird, denn das ist eine Anleitung zum Töten.

    Und wenn wir die ganzen Tötungssimulationen aus dem Alltag beseitigt haben, können wir uns ggf. ENDLICH der Frage widmen, WARUM Töten einigen so leicht fällt, nachdem sie es simulieren konnten. Das hat dann etwas mit der Achtung vor dem Leben anderer zu tun und irgendwie werde ich den Verdacht nicht los, das eher an dieser Stelle ein Problem zu suchen wäre.


    Yes, of course, as it’s also the correct decision to prohibit shoot-'em-up games. I'd also prohibit National Service, because that's also about simulating killing. As a next step, please prohibit filums containing killings, since they provide a guide to killing.

    And when we’ve got rid of all the killing simulation from our everyday lives, we could eventually FINALLY ask the question WHY some folks can kill so easily after being able to simulate it. That’s something to do with respect for the lives of others and somehow I can’t rid myself of the suspicion that that’s where the problem should be sought.

    I can't say I disagree with him.

    Stand by for some cretin to come up with the same idea here. We can't be out banned by the boxheads.

    Who cares Only an idiot would argue with an idiot.
  7. And that's exactly why I can't be bothered to "argue" with you, Odd_Sarge. :D :D :D

    Thanks for the smiley - I bet you think that makes you look jokey and clever, hint, you're still a socialist cnut.

    Oh and you can't argue with me because you have no argument.

    That Odd Sarge bit is genius, no really.
