Most think I am weird though I believe them wanting in uniqueness. Many aspire to carve their own niche and end up blending into the sea of posers.

Nerf Swords

Posted August 22nd, 2009 at 07:41 PM by J4Jandar
I was cruising my local K-Mart the other day searching for a cool birthday present for my seven year old step son when I came across the Nerf Sword. I thought to my self "Brothers love to beat on each other so what is better than sibling brutality and violence? Sibling brutality and violence with out blood and crying!".

I got them the swords. Non stop beatings all day long and nary a hole in the walls of the house to be found. The only catch is that when dad partakes in the clash of wit and foam there is crying, just no blood. So they're a fun a socially acceptable way to beat your kids.

I think I just found a way to settle disputes with my wife...

That kid needs to be punished! There is only one way to do it, however.

*a little while later*

Hey, Jr., want to go play with your swords?


Poor, unsuspecting sucker.

My friends and I use the broken off ends of shovels (no heads, because that might send one of us to the hospital) when we need to get some brutality out of the way.

Haha. At the toys r us near me they have these 6 dollar foam swords. The will break after a lot of beating, but it makes for a fun party.

Glad to hear of the therapeutic benefit to the Nerf sword. I've walked past them several times at Walmart, I may stop next time.

Nerf Swords tend to hold up okay from what I've seen. When ever the youngest annoys me with questions it's gonna be "Hey Tyler, wanna have a Nerf Sword fight?".

You know, I'm reminded of that episode of the Simpsons from way back around season 2. The one where the go to Dr. Marvin Monroe and he gives the family those foam-covered therapy bats. . . .

Two years ago at Origins in Columbus, my little brother and his friends played in a LARP that utilized foam weapons. The object was to fight through a dungeon (the guys running the show posed as monsters) and find the lost sword of "The Champion of the Human Village". You paid a couple of bucks and got to play one time through this staged scenario.

It's important to know that this particular LARP is played often, and you gain experience, which carries over if you play all the time. So, if you play 50 times, your character is probably on Level 30-some and very strong. This was my brother's first time playing. He chose to be a knight and was given a sword and shield.

His group found the sword, and brought it back to the Human Village, where the champion thanked them and asked for it back. However, my brother told him that he would not return the sword, and that he wanted to be Champion of the Human Village, and challenged the Champion to a duel. Not really knowing what to do, the Champion accepted and got his back-up equipment.

Hiding behind his shield for most of the duel, my Level 1 brother was somehow able to defeat the Level ?? Champion by hitting him with attacks of 2 for 20 minutes, while continuously blocking attacks of 10-30 (my brother had about 5 HP, so he's dead in one hit). He left Origins as the Champion of the Human Village.

ROFL, he admitted to being a LARPer! <<FAIL>>

Anyhow, I was in Wally World and my 8-year old and I decided to settle a land dispute arising from her claim that the shopping cart is HER car, not mine. The battle ensued, and I inadvertantly (and skillfully) jabbed her right in the eye, at which point she howled like a banshee about how her eye was broken, and then she started bawling.

She wasn't hurt, but she certainly was not happy.

Beware the Nerf.

She wasn't happy but didn't back down, atta girl! Tougher then the seven year old I'll tell you that. When the two boys play nerf swords the youngest cries whenever he gets hit and yells at the oldest but tries to hit the oldest as hard as he can. Go figure.

We tell him to stop being a sister boy and hit him more. He's gonna get hit harder for being a wussy.
