Would you like this gig?

Since my daughter is in London I'm paying close attention to the riots. They are bringing out the water guns finally. I'd love to get up there and shoot some punks with a water gun.

Paint ball guns would make sense. They hurt, and they mark who you hit.

The purpose of a water gun is to create distribution uniformity.

I seem to remember similar use of water during the Civil Rights unrest in the 1960's

I answered "Yes I would but only to find the girls and spray their chests". So Pete I have one question - if I'm using the water canon, is your daughter in the line of fire!!!

RUNS AND HIDES!!!

If she is she deserves it. Fortunately she's one of the ones that make you think there's hope for the future. Even though we differ politically on a lot of stuff. Dripit's girl is another one. I'm sure 99.9% of the kids of people on this forum will not get nailed by a water cannon. Just the anarchists.
