NicoFinn: Firecrackers. America is running scared.
NFA: NicoFinn: Firecrackers. America is running scared.THISWhen I was a kid in the 1970's I brought some toy snappers to school. They're little poppers with a string on each end that when pulled make a popping sound (see picture below). A bully snatched them out of my hand and later popped one in the cafeteria at lunch. He got caught and immediately claimed I gave them to him. I told the truth, that I brought them to school and they were taken from me. But that I did not willingly give them out.I was taken to the school administrators office. He wrote up a charge that I distributed "small explosive devices" and distributed "booby traps". He told me that if I signed the document, I would not be suspended. So I signed the document and with a smile on his face he said "good luck ever getting a decent job with this on your record". He actually enjoyed farking over my future over nothing. That day I learned a lot about people, especially about people who are supposed to look out for your well being.Note: This is also the same school where the guidance counselor told me that pursuing an engineering degree was a mistake, that there were too many engineers and I'd never find a job. I never returned to his office ever again. At 17 years old, I lost all confidence in his judgement.The joke was on him, not one single employer has ever given a rats ass about my time in that school, a school which now no longer exists.
Rat: All of the devices required being exposed to an open flame in order to detonate™ firecrackers? Were froggies involved?
