Using my blog to try and make the world a better place. If I can help someone forget their troubles for a few minutes a day, it's all worth it.

I watch the ripples change their size, but never leave the stream of warm impermanent sand. So the days flow through my eyes but still the days seem the same. And these children that you spit on as they try to change their world are immune to your consultations. They're quite aware of what they're going through.

G.I. Joe (and other stuff)

Back in the early 70's, it's amazing the toys that boys had. G.I. Joe, fake guns, plastic hand-grenades, plastic swords, candy cigarettes, fake joke vomit.... what the hell were our parents THINKING???? I never got into the war stuff, but I liked the candy cigarettes.

And now the politically correct facists allow the packets of fake cigarettes WITHOUT the red colouring on the end!!

How is a kid supposed to light those???

And how are they supposed to know which end to light? Yes, the 70's were MUCH simpler days indeed..

I liked the bubble gum cigarettes myself.

Now I see them in some stores, but they are bubble gum crayons. It's ok to eat crayons.

I had a few kids in my class that were fond of crayons also. They also liked placing them on the radiators in the classroom and watching them melt. But hey, if that's their thing....
