Ah, rubber-band fights: a schoolkid’s rite of passage. Let us fondly recall those heady days of desperately trying to nail our friends in the eyeballs — totally an accident, honest! — with a Mark 1 Mod 0 finger pistol, or the advanced delivery technology provided by a No. 2 pencil.
Remember the days of playing “Duck Hunt” on Nintendo? Often bittersweet, what with the actual playing time interrupted regularly when you had to take out the cartridge, blow into it, and then slam it back into place. Or the occasional rage fit because the damn Nintendo Zapper gun would miss even when the barrel was pressed right up against the television screen.
