Remember when snowball fights used to be fun?

Not anymore in the Seattle area schools! They are considered violent and dangerous.

I'm wondering if these school administrators would survive in the real world...

I don't remember being able to have snowball fights without getting in trouble (at school anyway), so this is no surprise

But I do remember people (usually stupid girls) getting pelted and injured by snowballs (usually out of hatred), so I'd say it's a pretty good idea

I remember in elementary school having to have the principal announce that we were allowed to have snowball fights. It doesn't know much here in Vancouver so there was always the risk of getting gravel and stuff in the snowball. Facewashing was always an instant trip to the principal tough.

When I was in elementary in Kansas we were allowed to have snowball fights on the condition that they didn't contain foreign objects.

I guess things are different elsewhere and have changed in the last 20 years.

Sad... it's really difficult for me to think of the US as a free country anymore... :(

LOL, I'd be afraid some Wannabe Gangsta getting uppity and pulling out his glock and blasting away after getting his bling bling or his throwback wet from a snowball

Snow ball fights have never been something to do AT school.

I had to go to the cloak room back in 1964 for a snow ball fight.
