    You’d give the tourists a story to tell back at home!

  2. kiks says:

    Is that a water pistol or a laser gun?

  3. Breigh says:

    Does it shoot nerf balls?! If so then no, you’d never forgive yourself because you’d never get your balls back. Your nerf balls, I mean.

    I’m such a sucker for those canal cruises. I love going on them haha

  4. Invader Stu says:

    Alison – And myself a criminal record

    Kiks & Breigh – It’s a nerf foam dart gun and I have enough supply of darts to go on a rampage. Mahahahahaha (and it really can fire that far).

    Could you live with yourself if you DIDN’T do it? ;)

  6. Irishangell says:

    DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!! you know you want to!
    If it makes things easier i’m in the dam on Saturday, I’ll get on a boat hold a big target up and hope for the best. Or I might get taken to the funny farm

    Or maybe you could try mardi gras beads?

  8. Heather says:

    I’m thinking a paint-ball gun would be a bit more fun.

  9. Invader Stu says:

    mub – You’re like the little devil on my shoulder in this story ain’t you :p

    Irishangell – Ok, but we have to come up with a scoring system first.

    Just a Plane Ride Away – Firing them from a gun? Ouch :p

    Heather – That would be so cool… no… must resist.

    Found your blog via Alison & I’m enjoying reading it!
    This pic made me laugh out loud. I’ve thought about it once or twice while watching tourists paddle like mad on the canal bikes in Utrecht ;)

  11. Dan Potter says:

    It be so easy. Just squeeze off one shot. They’d never know it was you. ;)

  12. Jase says:

    Now that you’ve thought of it, you’ll never sleep properly until you complete your mission.
    I suggest also yelling “fire in the hole” then tossing a few eggs out the window.

  13. Invader Stu says:

    kerryanne – Welcome :) Paddle boats, now there is a good idea. A great chance to get some head shots :D

    Dan Potter – Can I use that statement in court :p

    Jase – Hhmmm… you have a good point. I might have to do it just for my own health and sanity.

  14. Anneke says:

    You’d NEVER forgive youreself if you didn’t at least hit that roof. Better yet, hitting people on those macbikes (easy to recognise by the colour and the wobble) now there’s a mission…

  15. Invader Stu says:

    Anneke – I’m starting to think a lot of you people are very evil

  16. Keith says:

    Go on! Squeeze the trigger, I think my ex-wife and her boy-friend are on that boat. I could do with a good laugh.

  17. Invader Stu says:

    Keith – I find it hard to argue with that reasoning.

  18. kiki says:

    What’s a nerf?

  19. Invader Stu says:

    Kiki – It’s the name of the brand.

  20. Dragonlady says:

    I do wonder about my parenting skills sometimes son.

  21. VallyP says:

    Nah, Stu…I mean I know all trip boats should be sent to a watery grave, but they should self destruct. You shouldn’t have to do it for them!

  22. Anita says:

    Do it, do it, do it, do it, do it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  23. Anneke says:

    Evil? Me? Never!

  24. Veronica says:

    Yes, you can do it and yes you can live with yourself. I just wish it was me who got the idea to use a paintball gun instead. I was more thinking about using a water pistol and coloured water. But a paint ball gun… sigh…

  25. Invader Stu says:

    Dragonlady – Well at least I am having a moral dilemma about it :p

    VallyP – Remind me never to get on one when you are around :p

    Anita – You want me to do it?

    Anneke – Yes you :p

    Veronica – If you sink them there is enough water

  26. manictastic says:

    You should use a red laser light and then put it nicely between people their eyes, I’d love to see the reaction of people on the boat :d

  27. Invader Stu says:

    manictastic – And the next thing I know I’m taken out by a real police sniper :p

  28. Gez says:

    Hmm…Paintball marker – you coulda borrowed mine if it wasn’t still in my parents’ attic in the UK…

  29. kiks says:

    i say do it. i used to be a guide on one of those boats. the guy in charge of turning the wheel to make sure we went left or right used to remind me every trip we went on “Remember i’m the captain of this ship. You do as I say”.
    He was completely serious.

  30. Gez says:

    Kiki> I’d have told him to pull his head from his butt – one of those canal tours vessels is not, by any definition of the word, a ship. Boat, yes. Ship? Certainly not.

  31. Aledys Ver says:

    Lol!!! This looks like a scene from The Bourne Identity or one of those :o)

  32. kiks says:

    @Gez- that’s exactly what i mean! The guy was a fiftysomething man who carts tourists around while a student tells them historically flimsy Amsterdam facts. No shame in that, but don’t go calling yourself a captain.

  33. John says:

    supergreat perspective…

  34. Lennert says:

    I know its over a year ago that you posted this, but it reminded me of a very common sight in our office :). We did found out that throwing them is more lethal and they make hardly any sound when flying trough the air and they travel faster as well ^__^
