@sammydog01 Right- with a little liquid filled ball in the center. We were told it was acid and if you popped it and it got in your eyes, you’d go blind. (Doubt that it was true, but it gave an element of suspense taking them apart.)
We used to tie the long rubber bands to car door handles and stretch them across the street to a corresponding door handle on the other side. We usually could get at least 5 or 6 done before a car would come down the street. The result would be a series of loud “pops,” and more often than not, the car would skid to a stop. We would be watching from the hill above the street, laughing at the bewildered victim. We were such jerks.
@mehcuda67@sammydog01 It’s not acid, but it does sting enough to scare the shit out of a curious kid…
The reason I know this is the same reason I developed one of my many corollaries to Murphy’s Law: If it can hit you in the eye, in inverse proportion to likelihood and expectation, it will hit you in the eye.
Like seriously - imagine a kid cutting into a golf ball with his Swiss Army knife - once pierced, the liquid (that he has no idea is in there) could squirt out in any direction; what are the odds that it would squirt directly into the eye, with surgical precision???
I may still be carrying some trauma from this incident…
I miss this kind of video. I know the team is busy actually working and people can’t devote a bunch of time to entertain us, but there used to be more shenanigans at HQ. I mean, is @mediocrebot even an asshole anymore, or did it mellow out?
