    Another fun game taken from the youth....Dodgeballs

    We used to play this at my old school before I was homeschooled, until someone got hurt and ruined it for the rest of us. :wink: He was just as sad as we were, but when you get hit in the face and are given a bloody nose, your parents generally complain.

    I've always thought the goal of high-end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.

    Fixed that for you.

    That’s how my parents work, but apparently not my friends. :tongue:

    What are the two appendages hanging from your shoulders for?

    They're for blocking the ball from hitting your face!

    Oh yes, and the pleasure of getting hit in the face with one of those balls.

    I was lucky, before puberty kicked in, I was occasionally a victim of the "big kids" who could really throw the ball hard. These were the kids who hit puberty before anyone else. my best friend was one of these kids, and having him "cover" me helped a lot. Finally, at 12, I suddenly was able to throw one at least as hard as anyone else, and it was my turn to get revenge on one kid in particular who targeted me. One of my fondest moments from jr. high, and there weren't many, was when I nailed him one day with a direct hit in the face, then the next day, I did what I had a little talent for, being able to hit a baseball directly at the pitcher. If I could keep hitting foul balls, eventually I would hit one back at the pitcher, head high, and I nailed him in the forehead. Down he went crying, and he had a giant lump on his head the next couple of days. Later on that year, he would finally push me too far and we got into it, and he lost, big time. He never hassled me again.

    I faintly remember the pattern from that red dodge ball leaving it's image on a lot of legs and arms.

    I just can't remember the image being left on anybody's face though.

    We were mostly streetwise city kids from N. Virginia. The good ol' days for sure!

    I had one of the original Nerf blasters, looked like this:

    ff_nerf1b_ss.jpg

    You loaded up that front section with 5 or 6 of those foam balls, and then pulled back the orange handle/plunger and rapidly shoved it forward to get a ball to shoot. Air pressure, so the harder and faster you pushed it, the more forceful your shot!
    Got Dayens?

    1960's flashback. I remember our set of these Child Guidance brand railroad pieces were kept in a vintage cardboard King Cole potato chip container. :p

    It would be great for carrying home stereos and speakers in for sure. But wrapped in a protective blanket, right? :D
