    I never claimed to be a nice person. But at least I make attempts. I'm usually not trolling, I'm the opposite, I'm way too fucking serious.

    The Bugs Bunny act is just how I cope with my uberseriousness. I'm only like this with friends, consider yourself lucky to even see this side of me.

    AS far as believing it, you don't have to for it to work for your advantage (or disadvantage). Don't worry about that (unless you have a good reason).

    My goals are simple, to help people out of the shadows and provide them assurances online. That's what I do. You'll have a tough time finding a more trustworthy person online. That's a fucking fact.

    I just have a well developed spidey sense for identifying mis/disinformation campaigns, which is why I love hanging out on this website. It's like one of those pedals where a pet can push down their paw, and get a treat, but my treats are liars, cheats, thieves, and scoundrels. You and quite a few others have a habit of triggering this finely tuned sense.

    Sorry if it's not always accurate, but I have a great track record, so good in fact they call me a "Lethal Forensicator".

    It's not easy, but most people will eventually learn to trust me (it's inevitable). I have a penchant for being aloof and a major wise ass, but it's by design. It causes fireworks to fly here sometimes, but in person I'm extremely likeable, physically intimidating, and gentle as a teddy bear.

    Unfortunately, my gentle nature makes striking martial arts and hurting people in combat more difficult (see my fight video for details), which is why for the most part, I enjoy grappling arts, archery, and defending the public.

    Maybe I don't.

    It's the 21st century.

    They can get Prince Harry's dick pics, your dick would not be nearly as hard (but not nearly as valuable)



    Yes pun intended.

    I already told you, man. I'm not sending dick picks. You'll just have to take my word.
    It's magnificent.

    Other than firearms, with the bows you have one of the world's oldest weapons still used worldwide to hunt game and FOR SPORT, so there still exists today a large number of guilds that promote serious archery skills FOR SPORT, and beyond.

    Yes, they still have "guilds" that aren't completely for LARP. They are usually really cool places.

    A trip to a local archery guild is a good eye opening to anybody interested. Guilds are probably the best places on earth to learn real archery skills across the board. How to stay safe with the weapons, how to perfect accuracy and consistency, and of course for the serious minded, how to kill things with your bows.

    The thing is, I knew quite a few guildies and I think they'd LOVE Archery Tag but at the same time snicker at it and make fun of it at the same time, ESPECIALLY the people who play it and think they're learning bow and arrow combat skills,

    I think that is exactly the crowd that would be attracted to Archery Tag...the Katniss soccer moms and Green Arrow comic book dads, and of course little Johnny the Ninja Archer who probably plays Archery Tag and then tells all his friends he goes to school for "Combat Archery" or similar.

    The Hunger Games did for the bow what You Only Live twice did for ninjas.

    Nowadays everybody wants one.

    A hunter, on the other hand, has not only sunk those broad heads, they've slit the throats, drained and disemboweled the carcass, mounted the rack, butchered the game, and if they're lucky, they have frozen venison to last for a whole season.

    Maybe I'm just being a pighead, but the idea that running around that field with a bow and arrow makes you Katniss Everdeen or Hawkeye at home defense...I can't buy that.

    ... but I am sure if you ask W.Rabbit he has a list of stuff from the past. The man is organized if nothing else.

    * shrugs *

    I just try to keep things real and on the up and up.
    Fair nuff. The usual demand is some kind of personal information that would give him an opportunity to defame me in some way. I am simply not that stupid or reactionary IRL.

    Yeah I'd bet money I'm in one of the zip codes they won't ship to.

    Been thinking of building one for a while now. The original style action isn't terribly complicated. Would be a fun project.
