Pocket Ninja: Lsherm: Uh, this has been around since the 70's.  But at least we all had our own erasers.

This is true, but overly dismissive. Take as an example marijuana, which many kids today call "reefer" or "grass." This particular drug has been around since the 1940s, and many addicts and enablers today use that to dismiss its continuing existence as a non-issue. "The reefer has been around for generations," they like to say. "Our parents smoked it, and their parents smoked it, too. Why are you only now caring that we want to partake?" And this makes sense, until you consider the implications. See, the reefer back then was nothing more than leaves from the cannabis plant that, when smoked, would cause the smoker to get slightly buzzed. A little silly, a little giggly, a little hungry. It was all good fun, a bit of whacky tomfoolery. But then the Mexicans came along, and they took the reefer and amped it way up, like a mojito. They added all kinds of things to it, chemicals and other drugs and sometimes even sugar. The truth of the matter is that the reefer today's kids are smoking isn't anything like the reefer of their parents. It's super reefer, reefer that's been known to kill within two, three tokes. And it destroys minds, so that the people smoking it can't even see what's happening to them.

It's the same thing with the eraser challenge. Back in the '70s, erasers were still a relatively new technology that relied mostly on plant extracts and natural oils and whale resin. But then whale hunting was outlawed, and plant extracts started getting used as bio fuel. And then China came along with all of its lead mines and cheap labor. The truth is that today's erasers are nothing like the erasers employed by the previous generation, and what was for that generation's elders a harmless, silly game can be for this generation a doorway to cancer, mental disorder, and worse. It's can sound square, I know, to claim that the younger generation should take heed from the mistakes of ...


See, THIS is why you are highlighted in green...

lindalouwho: MadAzza: Dr.Fey: Used to call them "sissy burns."

Yes! In the late sixties or early seventies. I was trying to remember what we called it.

I wonder how this spread across the country so fast pre-internet.
Vacations visiting cousins in other states?


Same as anything did, I guess. Kidernet.
