Is phonebooking illegal? No. Well...yes. Assault is assault. Just don't get caught.

I used to go to the University of Waterloo, where these videos are being shot. The school is actually really, really boring. Nice to see people spicing things up. Some of the videos are funnier then other. It's a bit sad considering these guys aren't 14 but in University. I'll stop typing now, lest I get some sort of beat down.

And obviously you don't either... don't "get it" that is.

It's not assault if they don't see you coming (then it's just battery)

Is phonebooking stupid? Yes. Well...yes.

it's a fad ... it'll fade away right after one of these guys gets their asses kicked for it

thanks for the kind encouragement, mr. express, but no "politics" were intended. i was merely pointing out how incredibly lame it is. it's something i might have done in the 7th grade.

i could have easily said this:
Nice to see people spicing things up.

or this:
Nice to see people spicing things up.

or this:
Nice to see people spicing things up.

capisce?

perhaps [this is bad] would have been more efficient, but how fun is that?

whiners. This is hilarious..

Next time just post [this is bad]. There is no confusion. Though why you feel the need to bitch at all I don't quite get. If you don't like videos of people hitting each other with phonebooks, suck it up, look at the next link, hopefully it'll be better.

i wouldn't mind the videos if they were a) somewhat entertaining; b) on a faster server. it looks like a big circle jerk. all their "targets" are people they know.

What's that I hear? Sirens? Why, I do believe I hear the whaa-mbulance approaching!

For crap's sake, if a bunch of kids want to hit their friends with phone books, let a bunch of kids hit their friends with phone books. Just not my phone book. I need it for the valuable money saving coupons therein.

Any ACTUAL phonebooking.

Should've been 'an', sorry - but there you go. A much-deserved phonebooking with some real payoff to it.

That was awesome, Ryvar.

Geez...

Some of you guys are such like, I don't know what because "stick in the mud" sounds so stupid, but have some fun from time to time! Laugh!

Realize that all in the World need not be a big cranky issue.

and Ryvar: That was hilarious!

maybe you just need to realize that every problem needs to be blamed on a person, place, thing, or (OH SO MUCH MORE IMPORTANTLY) concept!

like, life doesnt happen, it happens to you. get a clue!
