When you were a child, what did you call the game where you knocked on someone's door and then run away?

Knocky nine door.

No idea why. Although we did give no.9 quite a hammering. One night we tied a reel of thread to the letterbox and gave ourselves enough distance so we could observe the result of our actions. It wasn't half as funny as we expected.
Knock nine door in the West end. We would pick a house at random then every 9th door after that.
Bullshitters misrepresent themselves to their audience not as liars do, that is, by deliberately making false claims about what is true. In fact, bullshit need not be untrue at all.

Rather, bullshitters seek to convey a certain impression of themselves without being concerned about whether anything at all is true. They quietly change the rules governing their end of the conversation so that claims about truth and falsity are irrelevant.

Might be that we did the same. Can't remember. I was the youngest in our group so had to play what the elders played and they obviously outgrew K9D before it made a connection with me.

You guys had pretty complicated rules.  We just knocked on a door and legged it.

Need a name for a concept I've been working on. It's based on bad news, except, instead of the news being bad, it's not bad--but, even more than that, it's the opposite of bad. Can't for the life of me figure out what to call it. Needs to be short and punchy.

I like it, but people are going to think it's news about the Dab and then you've lost 'em.

 :lol: Just saying it almost makes you feel the opposite of bad. Almost.

Aye that was what I thought. But if you are targeting oldies trying to be cool (or the type of people that win the postcode lottery)it could work. Get them to celebrate their 'bad' news by dabbing, they'll love it. And then kids might tune in to laugh  at the oldies trying to be cool.

We'd also do a few doors at once and leg it to somewhere we could watch them all come out together.

It was only fun if you went knocking on the doors belonging to abosulte radge packets.

If they didn't come out and chase you in their car it wasn't worth it.

If you really wanted to add some danger to the game you could play Knock Knock Nonce and hope that weird middle-aged guy didn't get you.

You're talking about Monkey Mush. He chased us on his motorbike. Great fun.

Not sure if we knew what a nonce was. All I know is we were told to stay away from him, which is a red rag to a sanitary bin.

Twitter question: How can you see who has "atted" at someone? So for example, Johnny Ordinary has tweeted a message @premierleague. From the Premier league page, how do you view this? I was thinking maybe Tweets and Replies but that just seems to be the same as the Tweets page.
