Peepeye: My daycare used to make us run from one side of the room to the other. While they stood on the sides and threw heavy frisbees at each other. We had to dodge the frisbees. I was a little kid, so they always hit my head. I hated that damn "game".


Luxury. When I was a boy there was ten of us was tended to by a St. Bernard with rabies. That dog would make us crawl over broken glass in a circle in a large open unenclosed space cause we couldn't afford walls, while the older kids threw rusty razor blades at us. And you try and tell the young people of today that and they won't believe you.

Pegging, subby?  Are you sure that's the word you wanted to use?

Actually, now that I think about it, some of the emo kids might be into that.

My kid was walking to the front door yesterday and I jumped out from behind a tree and smashed him in the face with a red ball from about 15 feet. He went ass over tea kettle and welled up ready to cry. I told him that if I saw a tear, I'd give him something to cry about. I walked away laughing, "That's dodgeball Biatch!" This is what I learned on the playground.
/none of this is true

GalFisk: I used to love dodgeball. I sucked at throwing, but I was an expert dodger and sometimes the last man standing. I think it came from dodging my little brother's tickle attacks, which was his only weapon at that time against the five year older me. This also made me a good goalie in floorball, since I was used to fend off repidly incoming objects in the form of index fingers.


In what kind of ghoulish game do people pelt you with index fingers?

I loved dodgeball day in school.  It was the only opportunity I had to give bruises to the assholes without getting suspended for it.   Also, as it turns out you can remove a tooth with a dodge ball.  Or was that a softball I found under the bleacher?  Who knows.  It was a long time ago, and officially no one saw anything.

Mija: spman: I don't get it, not that I approve of bullying in any way, but if you manage to completely eradicate it from schools, how are kids going to learn how to deal with it outside of school? Guess what, it happens, some day you're going to have a neighbor who's a jerk, or a co worker that ticks you off, or in laws who try to push you around, and if you don't learn how to handle these problems early on, won't that just turn people stabby as adults?

You are trapped in school and if you defend yourself you are punished. As an adult you have legal ways to defend yourself that children don't have. You can take a bad neighbor to court, report them for code violations, file a barking dog report and go to court over that. I'm doing all those things with my loud, dirty, white trash neighbor. You can turn your back on in laws and ignore them. You can talk to a co worker or talk to your boss without being punched in the head repeatedly....usually. Come on, you know that kids aren't allowed to defend themselves like adults are. Kids can't walk away and choose to have a different environment to be in all day, every day. You can.


If you have butthead neighbors, then you hit them in the head with a large red playground ball.

It makes the coolest BWANG sound.

Apparently, the form of DB I played was, but didn't realize it until my 10 year class reunion. 3 nerds made a point to come over and tell me that I had caused them DB PSTD or something like that...not sure, I was drunk. Nerds.

antidumbass: Hell yes, it's a form of bullying. I remember the brawniest, tobacco-chewing kid in PE throwing a ball at the scrawniest kid in that class. He was hit in the nutz with such force he was monkey flipped through the air, landing on his back. The coach, a sadist, roared with laughter and told him to "Go walk it off".
Fark dodgeball.

You had razor blades? You were lucky. When I was a lad we had to get up three hours before we went to bed, use old tin can lids to dig up bits of coal to eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and then trudge off to school, which was ten miles in the snow, uphill both ways, collecting bits of roadkill to play with at recess. Dodge roadkill, that's what we called it. And we were lucky to have it.

You say that they need to deal with it in the adult world?  Guess what Most of what is done by bullies, if done in the adult world would wind up with the bully fired from his/her job and/or arrested for harassment if not assault.

And kids do find ways to deal with it,  Two Kids at columbine high school for example found a rather effective method for dealing with it.

As a formerly scrawny kid I never had a problem with dodgeball.  The bigger kids always had to gang up on me because I learned early on that catching the ball hurt less than getting hit.  It was easier to catch the ball than to dodge it.  You could be the kid that got picked on elsewhere but in the game you could be the cool kid.  The added bonus was ganging up on the bullies.  One throws at his feet, one at his nuts and one at his face.

The feet knocks them down giving others a chance to nail his nutsack.
The nut shot was glory in and of itself
The face shot was awesome covered in awesome sauce and topped with a bloody nose.

The rule at my school was if they aimed at your head, but you could catch it, they were fair game. Since everyone did that, I got better at catching the ball and hitting them back. People learned very quickly not to aim for me at all, because there was no such rule about hitting someone in the junk.
