    I went to the con and within the first hour I was pinned against a wall and several facepunchers and a few other guys whipped out their pistols and started waving them in my face and rubbing them on my face.
    10/10 would go again

    Well, shit FPs back... right at the end of the day.

    I'm sorry the meetup didn't happen, I met 2 of you. If anyone is going Sunday look out for me!
    I just got home right now and I am pretty sure I saw you (unless there was another guy in a gillie suit)
    sorry I didn't say hi I was with a couple of other friends who are fp lurkers too.

    I visited flagstaff briefly last winter during a trip out west.

    Awesome little town, they had lots of snow/ice there, which you wouldn't expect for Arizona (then again I did hike 5 days earlier in the middle of a nevada desert canyon snowstorm, and have the pictures to prove it). I feel like it's the only town in the state that actually has cool temperatures due to it being right next to a bigass mountain and being in the middle of a national forest.

    Lots of charm, if a bit high on the hipster meter

    There were a few, but mine was the most distinctive and I wasn't 12 :V plus I was the only one with a huge ass rifle

    Are you going tomorrow?

    I have never seen a scorpion outside of captivity in AZ


    Also I fucking hate that everything is Arizona is brown. Like, holy shit it's so drab. If your entire county is in a desert the last thing you should be doing is painting every single building a shade of brown.

    I know that feel. I was in Mexico during summer vacation and I was pretty much bare foot all the time, all of a sudden I felt a sharp sting on my foot and I didn't mind it. Next day, my foot was swollen up and it was a baby scorpion. I was pretty damn pissed man.

    I can't tell you how painful it was sitting prone like that. Most people think the pain was from laying on concrete, or the cold floor, but it was actually the loss of circulation in my arms making them fall asleep and/or tingle in pain. I also had to rest my cheek on an extremely hard plastic cheek rest, so that didnt feel good either. Also my hip bone was being dug into.

    I stayed in that position for three. hours. Totally worth it though, so many photos taken and people had fun with it, and thats what I'm trying to set out to do.

    A lot of people thought I was fake until I pulled my pistol on them

    Yeah, I live way out in the desert and it's only happened when I'm getting up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom and I step on something in the hall which doesn't like to be stepped on.

    They're yellow flashlights and they're made so that if you switch the flashlight on they'll explode. No one knows who's doing it.

    I know 'oh no fox' but it it was the best "legit" source I could fine. They can "seriously physically injure" so I'd imagine the explosions are decently big.

    Did a bit of research and it doesn't seem too big.

    Christ, you guys made it sound like someone was randomly leaving C4-packed flashlights about the place

    Alright, I suppose. I've only come across a handful of homophobes, my dad included. He'd probably disown me if he found out.

    Must suck to have them.
    The most dangerous animal in Norway is Dolichovespula norwegica.
    It's a smaller and less aggressive version of the common American Yellowjacket wasp.

    Well like I posted back in the first page... Scorpions are the least of your issues in AZ.
    Other issues are javelinas, mountain lions, rattlesnakes, and coyotes.
    Most won't bother with you, but a good majority of the animals in Arizona could give less then two shits about your existence, and won't back down if you threaten them.

    It's a local Fox station, it's fine.
    This is some weird stuff, hopefully they'll find whoever is making these bombs. But I would assume that if they find a random flashlight on the street, nobody would go and turn it on.
