But really, it seems silly to be proud of a post count, but that's what I am at the moment, seeing as it did take 3 and a half years to get there.

Well, at my school currently there aren't any bullies (at least not in my year.) Thank goodness.
But even if there were, I don't think I'd be able to defend myself. I have this thing with pain. Perhaps this is just me being ridiculous, but I seem to get hurt easier than other people. Which is why I don't like fighting.

Interesting to note that we have three pages of dialogueing about how to properly react to bullying and other adverse circumstances but little on the rightness/wrongness of those adverse circumstances. Bullying for instance. Why is there no discussion on how to properly treat bullies and bullying behaviour - there have been studies that indicate part of bullying is an inability (by the bully) to properly participate in play and bullies can therefore be taught how to interact on a proper level and forego the need to bully.

Bullies are there and need to be reacted to but bullying behaviour should not be considered an acceptable and unavoidable part of life.

I agree there. When you're being bullied, fighting back isn't going to help much unless you're really really good at it - the bully will just pick on a weaker person instead.[self-pity]Like me.[/self-pity]

Congrats, the next 1500 won't take nearly so long now that you've learned English. :P

It's not so much learning English but posting more often - at the moment it's like 2-3 posts a week, unless there's some topic I'm actively involved in.

In the few years since I left school things have gone overboard safety concious. I went there the other day to discover warning tape around all the trees and water tanks ffs. When I went there (which was only like four years ago) we were absolutely nuts. We had "Scrag" (Which by the sounds of it you guys didnt have) and "Beat The Crap Out Of Bullrush".

Scrag is a game where one person has the ball and everyone does their utmost to injure them until they conceed and someone else gets the ball then you try and injure them.

The bullrush game was played by a few people being in the middle of a football field and a few people being on the edge and when the people in the middle said go you had to run across the field and their job was to beat the crap out of you until you go there or until you gave up.

Another popular game was jumping of of 6 or so metre high trees into the one beside it (there was a large line of them) and see how far down the line you could get before you fell down and got the crap beaten out of you by branches.

We also had full school brawls and cage fights (by taking the two soccer goals and putting them together) but I think I've rambled enough for one post.

Sounds awful.

I guess over-coddling is bad, though. That usually produces spoiled brats.
Thuryl, I really hope you don't mean that seriously. Oh, and also, what do all of you mean by 'children'? 3-6 years old? 6-12 years old?

Perhaps. But still, it's not enjoyable going through a period of bullying, especially if it lasts years. I know that from personal experience. And anyway, surely you can be prepared for the real world without all that?

Couldn't find any good 500 images on Google Images, unfortunately. But still. 500 posts! Yay! Took me over three years to get this far...

Edit: Also, this is the 900th topic in General (excluding, I guess, all those lost in the cleanups)

And I strongly disagree. While I do not agree with bullies, I do not believe in mollycoddling a child. You let them take their lumps. None of this helicopter parent crap.

I was the kid that beat up the bullies in school. Fight back. Bullies can't bully others when you break their pinkies or smash their fingers repeatedly in a locker door. Humiliate them. Crush them. Grind them under your heel in public and let everybody see them for what they are. Cowards. If somebody jumped me, I'd never let it go unsettled. I'd come back with a bat or a tire iron if I had to.

Big difference between kids being kids and bullies being bullies... We would do the whole two for flinching thing as friends. Bloody noses were common and it was nothing personal. It was a safe way to learn how to fight, and fight well, and it was the duty of a good friend to exchange lumps. It was just what you did. You gave each other black eyes and fat lips and then you'd go and buy cokes for a nickle or a dime and sit back and laugh about it. And when the time came when it was the real thing, you knew what you were doing in a scrap. None of this sissy slap fighting.

And so what if you were helpless against bullies? What if you could not do anything to fight them? Should you be made to suffer all that pain? It doesn't necessarily make you a better person, you know.
Believe me, it's not pleasant being bullied and not being able to fight back. You have to simply take it, and if you try to run away they just make fun of you.
Probably some people will say 'Just ignore it.' But believe me, that is a lot easier said than done. When you have persistent bullies, it really lowers your morale. Gradually, it becomes not "I don't know how to fight" but "I can't fight, I'm hopeless, they'll just keep doing this, I'd be better off dead."
That's pretty close to what I often felt a few years ago. It's good to be able to tell someone to let them stop it. And it DOES NOT necessarily make you a 'pussified nancy' at all.

I disagree. Kids, even adults shouldn't be made to suffer pain (physical or emotional) without being able to put a stop to it if they can. They can live perfectly good lives without all that. 'Going all soft' isn't necessarily a bad thing.
And I'm speaking as a kid who has recieved plenty of bullying at school. There is no shame in telling somebody about it who can put a stop to it.

And anyway, if I had to put up with all that 'no flinching' stuff at school now, I'd have commited suicide within a week. And I'm serious about that.
Although I do agree banning Tag is going a bit far.

Funny, I haven't heard of 'Avernnm' either. Or 'Genfeorge' for that matter. Are they simply clones of Avernum and Geneforge?

Never played any of the games in the poll. A lot of them I haven't even heard of, let alone played. Should I be ashamed?

One budgie, two finches, two cats. We used to have an extra budgie and a canary, but the budgie died a year ago and the canary died a few months ago.

Well, okay, technically this isn't a celebration topic. But I can still post without having a landscape photo.

You can bypass the 2004 intro level via a cheat code. Go over to the level you want to play, hold ctrl and type in 'wendigo' without the quotes. It doesn't affect your high score because you have to do the levels anyway, it just affects what order you do them in.
