Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

A UK paintballing outfit has been obliged to ask participants if they're packing Bulgarian airbags before they take to the battlefield, after a 26-year-old combatant's Bulgarian airbag was burst by a paintball round.

The jub implant rupture shocker happened last Saturday at UK Paintball's open air centre, close to Croydon. It wasn't until Monday, though, that the unnamed victim went to see her doc, who told her she'd lost one of her enhancements.

A UK Paintball spokesman said: "Part of the fun of paintball is that it hurts a bit when you get shot but in all the years we've been going we've never seen an incident like this.

"It came as a real surprise to hear that a woman had her implant burst at one of our centres and whilst she's going to make a full recovery, we want to ensure nothing like this happens ever again."

The company's website now carries this alert: "Due to an incident at our Croydon Paintballing centre on Saturday 20 August 2011 we respectfully ask that any ladies with surgical breast implants notify our team at the time of booking. You will be given special information on the dangers of paintballing with enhanced boobs and asked to sign a disclaimer. You will also be issued with extra padding to protect your implants while paintballing. Thank you for your cooperation." ®
