Aren't children strange? Answered
Today is Children in Need day in the UK. Non-uniform day at school (I went dressed as Indiana Jones), and fun activities in the afternoon.
I got my Van der Graff generator out for a play, and found kids queuing up so that they could pay to be hit with thousands of volts. They knew it hurt, but they still queued. Some came back for more.
(Oh, and I let off a Party Popper behind the Head of Year 8 whilst he was trying to do a cool and suave impression of James Bond. That was funny!)
