    Even the Airsoft crowd will tell you this is bad etiquette. You don't wear something you didn't earn. Where have we heard that before?

    Plus, he's wearing it all wrong...

    And what's with the Hugh Jackman/Wolverine mutton chops?

    Still, you gotta admire the way his videography skills are improving over time. He's got some very clever camera shots in there for a one man operation. If he poured his time and effort into videography, he might be useful.

    I'm well aware that Ralph has proven himself to be an ass on here - but how the hell can any teacher who wants to be seen as 'the real deal' be proud of having his name publicly invoked in connection to this man-child?

    You see a man child. He sees the real deal reflected back at him.

    I'm kinda torn between that and Ralph sitting at his computer facepalming - but doing the whole 'I can't be seen to be caving in to Bullshido by cluebatting the guy' thing...

    In fairness, your suggestion is probably closer to the truth.

    his videography skills are really impressive now. you wouldn't think it's just him doing it all.
    also, he's doing a decent job at self teaching, even though he's learning ****.
    finally, he actually is a good teacher. he just doesn't have proper knowledge of his subject.

    see, this is the problem with stork, he's got so many goddamn talents that would be so useful to everybody, and he could make a good living and be a productive member of society if he would just go with them. he's a decent snowboarder. he's got great bmx skills for riding so rarely. his ability to instruct is better than most peoples. he has an artistic eye for film.

    ****, i'm tempted to suggest he film and cut footage for us.

    to the above posters that called him a man child, you're 100% correct. i'm guilty of ninja larping 20 years ago. i think we all were. we grew out of it. he didn't.

    it's really a shame that he's a dipshit ninja survivalist larper. under different circumstances, he could have been one us.

    Oh I admit to it. In my teens I was a McDojo attending, D&D playing, Ninja Crazed, military LARPER who used to run around the woods with my buddies in tabi and BDU's playing war games with foam padded swords and arrows.

    It was great fun and from it I found a path to military service and a law enforcement career.

    Thing is...I grew up. LARPing turned to more "adult" hobbies like paintball, rock climbing, parachuting in my 20's then into an enlistment..then marriage, kids, work, etc.

    I'm with Kimbo, this guy is "stunted"...a grown man with potential stuck in a fantasy world.

    When I watch these videos, I definitely see a dark reflection of where I use to be.

    But I grew up, and I got married, and I had a kid... These things change you; actually, the change begins when you realize how much you want these things -- or things very much like them. Mr. Stork seems content to live in his fantasy world and chooses to forego the pleasures maturity can bring with it. That's sad.

    Maybe he should start by wanting something more sophisticated than plastic lawn furniture in his kitchen area? Who knows? A conversation with a real, live girl might follow...

    I don't care about him being stuck in a fantasy world, but the fact that he is a grown man that started with cheap homemade armor and weapons to the real thing, and then cheap airsoft weapons, to the possibility of receiving some kind of .22.

    What's next? Explosives?
