A thread in a message board in a mystery game on the internet in the 21st century (i.e. reality) about everything and nothing. Just a place to hang out when the cases are done and the addiction still lingers.

Welcome! Some things you should know:
1. You can't wander off topic, there isn't one.
2. Fighting or bickering will not be tolerated, as per the Code of Conduct.

http://noir.playsleuth.com/help/conduct.html

3. Even though YOU happen to be a dear sweet gentle lamb, if your sleuth persona wants to fight or bicker "in character", it's STILL fighting and bickering.
4. Polite and passive aggressive fighting and bickering is STILL...etc etc.
5. Feel free to converse, emote, ramble, post in 3rd person or spanglish, whatever suits your fancy. It's unhijackable!

We made up games with sticks and tennis balls and ate worms, and although we were told it would happen, we did not put out very many eyes, nor did the worms live inside us forever.

We rode bikes or walked to a friend's home and knocked on the door, or rang the bell or just walked in and talked to them.

Little League had tryouts and not everyone made the team. Those who didn't had to learn to deal with disappointment.

Some students weren't as smart as others, so they failed a grade and were held back to repeat the same grade. Horrors! Tests were not adjusted for any reason.

Our actions were our own. Consequences were expected.

The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke a law was unheard of. They actually sided with the law. Imagine that!

and to think that some people were raised as such in the late 70's and early 80's too... but anyway... I guess some people feel it necessary to display their age everywhere. ;-)

Of course, I'm only kidding. But some things were forgotten there... such as how punishment was handled back then. Kids today can't fathom that they actually get it pretty easy compared to their parents and/or grandparents.

Kids today all have "child protective services" programmed into the speed dial of their cell phones.

I'm afraid I have to agree, Sophie. And not only that, but they also know how to use and abuse the system. I'm not a pessimist, really, just have seen some of the little darlings in action.

UGH!

You blasphemers! I spent a LOT of time on Anything and Nothing *sniffle*

Take a bit of time off and look what happens...pushed aside like old milk.

Now I know how senior citizens feel! ;)
