    After having your thread splattered with GDG, not sure it will get back to your beginning, Keith. But to proffer some additional info to what you have pointed to, here's something from across the pond that illustrates we aren't the only lunatics on the globe.

    I recall when the PC movement began. It was so ludicrous we just figured it was a silly fad. Then the Ebonics was added to the mix. Guess the jokes on us...any sane logical thinking person that thought this would go away like racoon coats and spats.

    The plywood post reminded me of one year when we got snow (not very often in south GA). There was about 3 inches or so on the ground, so my dad tied a sheet of masonite to his work van with a long rope and dragged me and my sisters around the dirt roads until one of my sisters fell off and broke her tailbone.
    Speaking of poor parental judgement, he also showed me how to build a gun with a threaded galvanized pipe nipple and cap, a marble and a firecracker. Just drill a hole through the cap for the fuse to go through and viola!

    With all due respect, someone starts a thread titled "Dumb America," it's a lock it will go on some odd directions!

    Did anyone else play the non-PC game of smear the queer. As I remember it, we'd play with around 5-6 people. One person would have the ball and everyone else went after him. I don't remember there being a point to the game beyond just takling people.

    Being about as 'humorous' as one can find on RTF, you certainly didn't think I was complaining about Keith's thread taking a dive did you??? Au Contraire...just stating a fact. I've been known to detour many a well-meaning thread into the oblivion of GDG, for after all, I was the one to acronym the good Doctor's gobbledygook observation.

    Sounds like what we played reffered to as "Kill the Carrier".

    Man oh man, we use to live for the dump. Nothing better than getting in the back of the pick up and going our and shooting those rats (and seagulls). A trip to the dump may have actually saved my life. One Saturday we loaded up and went to the dump with my friends father. While we were gone a tornado came through our backyard and tore out a giant tree that he had a tree fort in. If we were home we probably would have been in the fort becasue he loved to stay out in it during rain storms (of course not so smart since our area is the lightining capital of the country).
    The only thing better than going to the dump was when we would get a freeze down here. Since several of our parents worked in the citrus industry we would get out of school so we could stay out in the groves all night lighting smudge pots to keep the orange trees from freezing. Nothing like 12-13 year old kids running around all night with kerosene torches

    Not sure how a lot of us are still here today........

    Not only did we play it on our own we also played it under the sanctioning of the coaches/PE teachers during PE sometimes. It involved 15-30 kids at a time usually. It was also a lot harder to get away when confined in our PE gyms!
