In Topic: There are some odd double standards in our society about model building...

That's exactly how it worked when my son was in Little League. The rest of the stuff you described was unheard of.

 

My oldest son was in the 3rd or 4th grade and I was an assistant coach in what was a little league for basketball.  They played an away game at a city where they took it much more serious than we did.  They were running the score up on us and my kids were not having fun......until I pulled our team over and told them "you get five fouls....go use four!"  Those fast breaks, run-n-gun and fancy lay ups stopped pretty quickly when bodies started flying. 

 

No one got hurt and now eight years later my wife still gives me grief over it.  My sons friends still laugh about it.

In Topic: One of the announcements you least want to hear on an airplane...

I was in the KHL terminal of the Detroit airport when they came on the speaker asking for volunteers to be bumped as the flight to England was overbooked and overweight!  Say whaaaaatttt???  I had to call the wife and waited for the announcement to repeat as I wanted a witness to this one.  If I was to be on that plane, I would have preferred just knowing 'overbooked'....didn't need to know the second part of that announcement!
