A Gift From The Gods!

So I'm watching the Madagascar Penguins, and during a commercial break I saw something so... beautiful... fabulous... wonderful....

The Nerf Vulcan EBF-25.

A Nerf gun WITH A BELT FEED!

My prayers!  They've been answered!

Readers of the comic strip User Friendly know that Erwin has a Nerf gun with a belt feed.  Before this, I had to make due with my Nerf Rapid Fire 20 (which I have immortalized in an upcoming Stress Puppy strip as the "Overclocker").

But this....

This...is wonderful.

FUCK!  WHY DID MY CAR ENGINE HAVE TO BLOW LAST WEEK?!?

Rapid fire Nerf? Cool!

Sorry to hear about your car. How bad is it?

Whole engine had to be replaced. Catastrophic failure of the timing belt that I thought I had replaced 30K miles ago.

The garage is goddamn lucky I can't prove anything.

Ouch! Might be cheaper to buy a new car. I hear you can get some pretty excellent deals right now.

Nah. The engine, installed and all, is $1 300. The car is paid off. I want to avoid a car payment as long as possible to pay down my other bills. Not only to get my finances squared away, but also because Harry Potter opens at Universal Studios in 2010, and I want to go there. I want a picture of myself in my robes under the Hogshead sign.

As written in Johnny The Homicidal Maniac, "There's really nothing terribly wrong with feeling hopelessly lost as long as that feeling immediate precedes some plan on your part to actually do something about it." The new engine results in a hiccup to my plan, not a derailment or delay, so I'm sticking with that.

Yeah, usually better to avoid the payment if possible.

I've got the "hopelessly lost" feeling down pat. It's the plan that's not working: Find a job!

I love my Overclocker, but there is something just so damned tempting about belt fed Nerf.

Your telling me! I want to examine the actual mechanism for how the belt feed works, since it always struck me as logistically impossible.

Then, of course, I want to engineer a REAL belt feed, like 100 darts or more.

Admit it...you want to know if it's possible, too.
