The Rejects are meeting up this weekend for a Crimean wargame and if you can have a damn good weekend, I won't because Ray will be at the wargame as well!

  2. I try sometimes to think if there was anything really good about the 90's. Well okay, maybe the net, and Zena Warrior Princess. Everything else kinda sucked.

  3. Except in the 60s I had to school mates that experimented with homemade fireworks......

  5. Great pic - and so true. We could play conkers, slide down icy paths, throw snowballs, climb trees...and no-one batted an eyelid.

  6. Once in the nineties I made the mistake of driving up Cicero Avenue at 9pm on the Fourth Of July, because I had to pick up someone at Midway Airport right then of all times. On my left I saw a four-man crew of Ciceronians preparing to launch what looked just like either this or a Scud missile, on a wheeled launcher, at the next neighborhood north of them. Someone else had thrown a 'grenade,' or maybe an M-80, at me earlier so I was a little jumpy already when I saw the Scud crew. These guys did look like adults, though, and not kids, at least.

  8. I'm with you on that! I don't know if it's just because we're old (though that, no doubt, is part of it) -- I think both the world and we have changed since then, which makes the gap even greater.

    Anyway, have a great game this weekend!

  9. Have fun. I was sorely disappointed when they discontinued Lawn Darts.

  10. The world is too protective of itself these days! The 80's were great! You could see 7 yr olds playing outside unsupervised and no one would think anything of it. These days it seems you must be at least 18 to go outside on your own!

    Love the pic and Wiley Coyote!

  11. That applies to the 80's and 70's as well!

  12. Damn that Ray! Maybe this weekend he'll leave the Pamela Anderson wig at home and stop calling you Tommy Lee.

  16. 80's didn't have internet where a two year old can buy stuff online and do it with instruction manual and how to do video along with .
    Disclaimer: 90s didn't pay me for this replay and FDA asked me give this statement.

  18. Hey you kids! Get off my property!

  19. Yeah I think that would work for the 80's too, now a days they are just pathetically dimwitted. Have a great weekend!

  22. It's just that I was too retarded to figure out how to build a rocket!

  23. Try and enjoy it even with Ray there. I mean, he voted for you.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I was one of those non retarded kids in the late 80's/early 90's. the good ol' days!

  25. Poor Ray, even when doing good he is shafted!

  26. You, old? Compared to me you're but a youth and ya know it!! I'm off to vote for the best wargame page of 2011....

    ReplyDelete
  27. Yeah that's only because we didn't have youtube to give us instructions on how to blow ourselves up.

    ReplyDelete
  28. The '90's made me. I'm gonna vote and hope you still eke out a fun time.

    Should I take ray along? all he needs do is drive 186 miles to mine we will take him from there.

  30. I watch something a few months back where they gave a bunch of kids a meccano and the original instructions to build a working crane. The kids all failed...partly because it was maccano's policy back in the 50's to put a few deliberate errors in the instructions - to make sure kids had to think for themselves.

  31. Haha that picture is incredible! :) I might have to steal it for facebook...

  32. Bit late with my catch-up to vote, but I was there in spirit. Not literally, you understand, cos I haven't coughed it, but you can have my moral support.

    Nice picture - ever hear the one about the nun and the gorilla?
