Paintball

What’s up guys? I’ve been apart of this sport named Paintball for quite some time now and I’m ready to introduce the sport to the innerwebs. I’ve been playing paintball for a year and a half now. First it started out as just a hobby to enforce the seizing of my boredom. My father introduced paintball to me as a pastime because he told me that he hated watching me play Call of Duty all day. I decided to give paintball a try.

This isn’t like most paintball stories where the person plays the sport and says they had a blast and all that junk. Truthfully, the first time I played paintball I was terrified. I got shot numerous times and winced at the pain of a paintball. I felt so pressured to play paintball because my dad enjoyed it. I didn’t want to keep my dad from playing so I decided I might get used to the pain after a while. Months on months, I still continued to be terrified… I once got so terrified that I shot a tree and wiped the paint on my sleeve to make it look like I was out. One day I decided to stop being so scared and rush the other team similar to my playing style in Call of Duty. That one day I truly had a blast. I rushed into the enemies fort, killed everyone, took the flag, and captured it on my own. I felt so proud and ever since then, I haven’t even winced at the pain of a paintball… as now I don’t feel it.

Just remember young players, if you’re friends are having a blast and you’re scared to get hit, it’s perfectly normal. My status in paintball now is that I’m on a team, played in the World Cup in Orlando, placed first in my local tournament series, and I’m still continuing to have a blast while playing paintball.

12 Facts About Tetris

Here’s 12 facts about Tetris that you probably didn’t know of:

  • Tetris has sold over 40 million copies worldwide, since it began in 1982. That provided the creator 800 million in revenues
  • Tetris was created by a Russian computer engineer named Alexey Pajitnov and released in 1985 by Nintendo. He profited very little from the game, while Nintendo, profited greatly. Perhaps that is what inspired Pajitnov’s development of the game called Hatris, released in 1990.
  • The most recognizable Tetris theme music is based on the popular Russian folk song called Korobeiniki. The original is based on a poem about a young pre-revolutionary Russian haberdashery seller. The song has been covered several times, most recently by an American band called Powerglove (Nintendo nerds will not miss the reference).
  • Tetris has inspired many scholars to ask the question: Can Tetris be won? While even the best players can take it far, the conclusion of John Brzustowski, in this research project conducted while completing his M.Sc. at UBC, was no, no you can not.
  • Brain imaging shows playing Tetris leads to a thicker cortex and may also increase brain efficiency, according to research published in the open access journal BMC Research Notes
  • The Tetris Effect can occur when someone plays Tetris for an extended period of time. After leaving the game, players may find themselves habitually strategizing about ways to put everyday objects together, or dream about playing the game while falling asleep.
  • The name Tetris is a combination of the words tetramino and tennis.
  • Tetris is played in more than 50 countries and has been translated into more than 50 languages
  • Over 75 million Tetris products have been sold on mobile devices and still growing
  • Tetris has been released on over 30 platforms
  • The worlds smallest game of Tetris took place under and electron microscope using 42 glass microspheres at the Department of Physics of Complex Systems in Amsterdam
  • Tetris is Still played over 1 million times a day
