Street Wars -- San Francisco edition

Two videos from KRON news talking about a live-time assassination game played with squirt guns. These folks are SERIOUS.

In High School, my friends and I organized exactly this type of game and created all kinds of trouble in the school. It got down to threats from the administration to transfer folks they thought were leaders if they didn't divulge information about how it was organized.

As the editor of the school paper, this became great material for me to write about. The standoff diffused, if I remember correctly, once the threat of the abuse of power article surfaced and the players agreed not to make kills inside working classrooms.

Enjoy the sight of adults geeking out -- hard.
