Hunt down Osama bin Laden in a paintball course designed to look like Osama’s compound in Pakistan. This is from TMZ by the way. And it was sort of hard to just take the photo without crediting TMZ. All this crazy pop up stuff comes along with it. Smart TMZ, SMART.
Also slightly off topic but not really because we are discussing paintball, Netflix keeps recommending a movie to us called ‘Paintball’. The synopsis is:
“During a serious paintball competition, eight strangers fall under life-threatening attack by an invisible enemy in the woods. Reluctant to trust each other but too afraid to be alone, the group members struggle to make it through the ordeal alive.”
Bin Laden, TMZ, Netflix, the movie ‘Paintball’. We just gave you a lot to think about huh?
Sometimes we feel like even though we as humans have screwed things up for the most part, we may just figure out a way to make it through… but luckily, something always happens that takes that thought and pisses all over it. Today’s urination was supplied by ‘the public’.
-’The public’ made facebook groups in response to the noisy yet biodegradable and compostable bags that Sun Chips implemented last year.
-’The public’ weighed the potential benefits vs. disadvantages in the argument between using materials that do a better job of disappearing but could potentially ‘wake up a roommate’ (yes, real complaint, and a facebook protest group was named ‘I wanted SunChips but my roommate was sleeping…’) – and decided that they would much rather not wake up their roommate or deal with the noise of a crinkling chip bag, and are fine with filling landfills at a faster rate than they have the potential of decomposing at.
-And “the public” complained loud enough that Pepsi/Frito-Lays thought they may lose a few bucks and pulled the whole line of compostable bags.
So hats off “public”, apparently the ‘least you could do to help out’ doesn’t involve eating potato chips and sitting on your ass…
(Side note: our PR response to somebody’s complaint that their roommate would wake up if they ate Sun Chips in the noisy bag would be: WHY THE FUCK ARE YOU SNEAKING AROUND EATING SUN CHIPS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT! MAYBE THE PROBLEM ISN’T THE NOISE AND JUST THAT YOU EITHER HAVE THE MUNCHIES OR EATING ISSUES)
