let's put it this way...if you leave cookies and milk out overnight and they are virtually untouched in the morning, it probably means Santa was grateful but your parents weren't hungry.

watch "Miracle on 34th Street" for other answers, Cord ;-)

I always leave antacids out for him, and a bunch of carrots for the reindeer (true)

You are a very thoughtful person. apparently, however, neither one of us is thoughtful enough to keep this thread on topic

*single-handedly tugs topic back on track*

Anyway...point I am making is that it doesnt matter if 12 yearolds are under the illusion that they are BB masters. When I was 12 I played out fantasies of being a spy, a ninja etc etc. If they think they are masters it may even make them a bit more responsible with the skills they have acquired.
They will realise the fallacy of their beliefs when they get their butts handed to them by a 9 yearold girl, or when they are old enough to perform the elusive skill of self critisism.

Yes, but the CIA did not hand you a spy kit and a ninja did not give you tabi boots.
The thing is that people giving out black belts willy-nilly to anybody who pays for three years is unacceptable.

"There is/was no Santa Clause. Telling them he's dead only prolongs their illusions.

Much like giving black belts to a 12-year old."

Hey Joel, awesome line there. Mind if i use it in my sig (naturally with full credit to yourself as the maker of said quip )

Hi all,

Joel thanks for the permission - though it turns out that the line is too long for a signature.

Oh well, yours in search of biting lines

A junior BB isn't a problem. Giving someone under a certain age a "junior" BB is no big deal. It's all the people out there handing out BBs like there's no tomorrow that gives me a headache.

Now, to read the full thread and catch up on what's going on.

I guess I didn't miss much by actually reading the thread. Oh well, I gave you my two cents, FWIW.
