I remember having GI Joe fights with my brother.  We used to pretend that our action figures were waging war with each other.  They would sneak into the enemy's base (each bedroom being a base) and attempt to take out the enemy.  It was funny because it was kind of arbitrary how we would determine whether or not one of the GI Joes successfully shot the other GI Joe.  I think it was based on whether or not we were willing to give up one of our action figures.  If it was one of our cherished Joes we would say "no way, you missed" or "he dodged it".

We would sometimes get in fights because one of us would claim that we had a straight shot at the opposing Joe.  It was a good time, nonetheless.

In elementary school, I thought I was the shit at chess.  My brother or Dad probaby taught me the 3 way move and I used to kick the crap out of everyone in elementary school.  In order to pull this off you basically move the qeen into position as well as a rook in order to trap the king in three moves.  I never found anyone who could figure out a defense....

That is, until I met Theresa Wozniak....

She totally ripped me a new asshole one day and the three way move didnt even phase her.

I couldnt believe that this girl took me out of the tournament when I was very close to winning.  Little boys dont like girls beating them in anything.  This was one of the many reasons why I hated Theresa when I was in elementary school.  We reconciled our differences a few years later....

I especially love her now cause she is posting memories....

We used to have these huge ant hills in the fields.  They were mounds of dirt, probably about two feet in diameter by one foot in height.  There were literally hundreds of ants crawling on top of each other doing who-knows-what.

My brother and I would pour various substances on them or throw caterpillars in the mound and see what happened to them.

One time we peed on them.  Those were simpler times.

I remember that we used to have these toys called "Food Fighters". Kevin and I had a huge amount of toys. I think that we had just about every food fighter. These action figures were a staple in our catapult game.

Memory: The Gradual Destruction of my Action Figures Part 1

Sometimes action figures would come with some kind of movement. You could lift their arm and it would spring back into place.  Well, I twisted one of my GI Joes only to discover that it would twist back similar to other action figures. I also found that they could be twisted almost a complete 360 degrees and they would spring back into their normal orientation.  Unfortunately, the Joes weren't intended to be twisted in such a fashion.  One time I twisted one of them and it broke.  The body fell off of the legs.  Then I was able to see why.  Basically, the top was connected to the bottom by a glorified rubber band.  After I discovered that, I stopped twisting them, but I started taking them apart to see if you could put one Joe's body on another Joe's legs.  It was very difficult and there were casualties.

I don't know why I remember this.
