    depending on the teacher, we used to get beaten with either fists, drumsticks, thick end of a 2 piece snooker cue and the creme de la resistance, a length of copper pipe wrapped in insulating tape. Kents, every last one of them.

    Ah stop moaning, you were brought up tough.  I know cos you are still here.

    FOR THOSE BORN BEFORE 1985 According to today's regulators and bureaucrats, those of us who were kids in the 60's, 70's and early 80's probably shouldn't have survived, because our baby cots were covered with brightly coloured lead-based paint which was promptly chewed and licked.

    We had no childproof lids on medicine... bottles, or latches on doors or cabinets and it was fine to play with pans

    When we rode our bikes, we wore no helmets, just flip-flops and fluorescent 'spokey dokey's' on our wheels.

    As children, we would ride in cars with no seat belts or airbags and riding in the passenger seat was a treat.

    We drank water from the garden hose and not from a bottle and it tasted the same.

    We ate chips, bread and butter pudding and drank fizzy juice with sugar in it, but we were never overweight because we were always outside playing.

    We shared one drink with four friends, from one bottle or can and no-one actually died from this.

    We would spend hours building go-carts out of scraps and then went top speed down the hill, only to find out we forgot the brakes.

    After running into stinging nettles a few times, we learned to solve the problem.

    We would leave home in the morning and could play all day, as long as we were back before it got dark. No one was able to reach us and no one minded.

    We did not have Play stations or X-Boxes, no video games at all. No 99 channels on TV, no videotape movies, no surround sound, no mobile phones, no personal computers, no DVDs, no Internet chat rooms.

    We had friends - we went outside and found them. We played elastics and rounders, and sometimes that ball really hurt!

    We fell out of trees, got cut, and broke bones but there were no law suits.

    We had full on fist fights but no prosecution followed from other parents.

    We played knock-the-door-¬run-away and were actually afraid of the owners catching us.

    We walked to friends' homes.

    We also, believe it or not, WALKED to school; we didn't rely on mummy or daddy to drive us to school, which was just round the corner.
    We made up games with sticks and tennis balls.

    We rode bikes in packs of 7 and wore our coats by only the hood.

    The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke a law was unheard of...they actually sided with the law.

    This generation has produced some of the best risk-takers and problem solvers and inventors, ever.

    The past 50 years have been an explosion of innovation and new ideas.

    We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility and we learned how to deal with it all.

    We had a bit waste land near us where everybody dumped everything, must have been a painter and decorator lived nearby as there were always loads of empty paint tins lying around, my party piece,,, light a fire, place empty tin with lid tightly in place and facing downward on fire, sit back and wait, "Bang", Apollo 13 eat your heart out, mind you guidance system left a bit to be desired some times...

    Yip, it's nice to see our upbringings never effected, affected, awfuckit, screwed any of us up...
