From a facebook post. What if children, like, really cool children, were astronauts?

https://www.cnet.com/google-amp/news/sisters-win-halloween-dressed-as-adorable-nasa-lunar-module-and-astronaut/



While cool, the lander would never have fitted through our gate.  So no lollies for that child...

Most visiting children this year at our house were zombies.  To me a lot of them looked like they had been badly beaten.  Which was prolly not their intention.  This got me thinking about children which were really beaten by their parents and, well, that was not a place I wanted to be.
However, they all seemed to be having fun and seemed to appreciate being told they looked horrible.

Afraid I'm not into Halloween, was never a British (or at least working class Brit) thing when I was a kid. We were into blowing things up and burning things down 5 days latter on Guy Fawkes  :thumbsup:

However when I went out last night there were loads of youngsters out and about, mostly witches and wizards and some of them very good.

Same & it was pretty much the same here in Aus when I was a youngster. Scary part was that when I mentioned it to a young lady in her early-to-mid-30's at work yesterday, who was going out to a Halloween function after work & asked what I was doing, she had no idea what I was talking about. I told her to Google it.

The death knell for Guy Fawkes was when the Fire Danger period crept outward to encompass it, & the lighting of bonfires & exploding of fireworks became verboten (the latter also to minimise the number idiots, mostly young ones, who injured themselves every year).

With our present 'Government' Guy Fawkes could do with being resurrected!  :banghead:

I think that the moderators will accept this proposal if you make it clear that you are suggesting ALL politicians should be caught in the blast, and not just one political party.

I've made the suggestion on Facebook of the resurrection of a certain Union General, certainly reviled in the South, for another "walk" through certain states.

Here's an idea: send them all out on Hallowe'en, dressed as themselves. Whoever gets the most candy forms the government. Let the people speak!

As a head teacher I once worked for said  (about a pleasant but very dim pupil)  If his brains were gunpowder, the explosion wouldn't blow his cap off!!

It would apply to many politicians today.

The death knell for Guy Fawkes was when the Fire Danger period crept outward to encompass it, & the lighting of bonfires & exploding of fireworks became verboten (the latter also to minimise the number idiots, mostly young ones, who injured themselves every year).

Very similar over here, at least we don't have the dry conditions you have at this time of year.

When I was a kid it was only 15 years or so after the war had ended so our bonfires were quite often on bomb sites, plus our dad's had mostly seen service and thus were happy with things that went "bang"  ;) and to cap it all my dad's mate had not only served with him in the Navy, but had joined the London Fire Brigade post war and was thus "in charge"  :thumbsup:

Mind you as a responsible adult I can now look back and see how dangerous it was  :angel: ;)
