A Prize In Every Box

This is a place for the random musings and life experiences of one Fliven, who looks for life's fun little surprises, even when its in a giant box of stale, tasteless foodstuffs.

Rub a Dub Dub

Here's an idea I've had. It could use some input, some fleshing out, some rules attached, but I think the general idea is a good one. Every year, each U.S. citizen gets along with their taxes a coupon entitling that person to punch in the face one person of their choice at some point over the next year, penalty-free. These cards are not sellable, transferable, and expire after that year. You must be at least 16 years of age, because before that your parents can give you a smacking anytime you need it. You cannot cause the person permanent physical damage or death.

This means that if you are a nice person that everyone likes, then you should have no problems. But if you are a big fat jerkface that just NEEDS to be hit, and a hundred people use their cards every year to punch you in the face, this would eventually let you know that you ARE a jerkface, and would be incentive to either change or get away from the people you are bothering. Plus how GOOD would it feel to be able to punch in the face someone who deserved it, legal-exempt and guilt-free? Maybe its just me.

I've started working on my family tree. Its getting to be quite a process. The family is HUGE when you start going back a couple generations. Seriously, my great great grandmother had six kids. She lived on a farm and had NO hospital with drugs and nurses and whatnot. Its no wonder she is stern of visage...I would be too after that. Another great great great grandmother had ELEVEN kids. So most of my time is spent plugging aunts and uncles into the program I'm using. I'm not sure its going to work out yet with this program, but we'll see. The thing is most of them will only either go back 3 or 4 generations, or won't do relatives by marriage or 2nd cousins or further. I want the WHOLE tree, you know?

Anyway, back to work.
