today i learned – mon 26th feb 2018

during a recent nerf war … i somehow managed to shoot my girlfriend in the eye 😂🙈

that has nothing to do with today’s fact … it’s just a bit amusing 🤷🏻‍♂️

#tdil nerf was originally the product of childish behaviour and used to have the best slogan ever

so, it’s pretty safe to say that everyone loves a good nerf gun 🙌🏻 … you get all the fun of shooting your friends but without the mess and/or pain of a real gun/a paintball gun 🔫

what you possibly didn’t know, however, is that wasn’t the first product that nerf released! they started out life with the ‘world’s first indoor ball’ 🏀

that isn’t all that interesting, but the way that reyn guyer (the founder) came up with the idea is!

you see, nerf is the product of grown adults throwing foam-rubber rocks at each other in a meeting room 😂 #adulting. after a period of throwing the little rocks, guyer thought – “hey, why don’t we just make a normal sized ball out of this super soft material … then people can throw balls indoors and not break their face!?”

handily, dude worked at a toy company … so they took the idea, developed it and then sold hella loads of them! 🙌🏻

possibly the best thing about the whole thing is that they marketed nerf ball with the slogan “you can’t hurt babies or old people” 😂 … best.slogan.ever 😱

right, that’s it for today 🙈 kinda useless? not really sure tbh 🤷🏻‍♂️ i enjoyed it anyhew 😏

byeeeeee 😉 #tdil
