Grab a wet towel, give it a twist and you've got the best locker room weapon around. The sound of a towel connecting with flesh is almost as loud as the scream you hear right after. Towel snapping has been around since cavemen discovered they could take the skin of a sabretooth tiger, dip it in a tar pit and then flick it at their buddy Thor. It was probably invented some time just before the wedgie.

If you've ever been involved in a towel snapping war, you know there are two sides to the story. If you're the one twisting and snapping, it can be one of the best locker room activities around. If you're the one getting hit with the towel, it's one of the sharpest pains you can imagine. Giving your buddy a quick flick with a towel may seem hilarious, but it can actually be pretty dangerous. A towel flicked at the wrong place at a bad angle can seriously hurt someone. There's rumors that a guy once had his sack ripped open after getting hit with his towel. (Some say his nuts fell right out and got mixed in with the whiffle balls.) This horror story and others have led many schools and swimming pools to ban towel snapping.

It may seem funny, but be aware of the dangers. If you're going to have a little fun with a wet towel, keep in mind the following rules:

1. Only flick your towel at a friend who you know will find it funny. Don't flick it at some kid you don't know just so you can hurt them.

2.Don't go crazy. A towel snap may be funny the first time - but know when to give it a rest.

3.Don't snap your towel at someone who's totally defenseless. A wet towel hitting bare flesh is much more painful than hitting someone who's wearing pants.

4.Be prepared to get it back. Don't snap someone with a towel, laugh and then cry like a baby when they snap you back.

Think Before You Snap

I personally think towel snapping is terrible because you're disrespecting the feelings of others and, cleary, it just hurts. I wouldn't want someone to hit me with a wet towel, would you? So next time think before you act!

I think you can not be sure he likes you. take me as an example theres this girl in my class who i talk to everyday. Now i see her as a sister and i have and will go to lengths just to make sure shes okay and her boyfriend doesnt hurt her. This might be what is happening in your situation so i advice that you wait a bit longer because him loooking at you may mean that he likes you and is waiting for the right time to tell you. Meanwhile you can get closer to him and flirt once in a while to asure that him you also like him (that is if he isnt sure). And dont worry if he doesnt like you back its better to have a friend who cares about you than a boyfriend who doesnt like you that much and is dreaming about someone else.

What part of it are you scared of? Is it eating in public and around other people, or just eating in general?  What it might be, if it's eating in public you don't like, is social anxiety, or social phobia. You should ask your doctor to check, because if it is, they can offer you ways to help. For instance, they might recommend therapists or group sessions to help ease your fear.  Even if it's just a phobia or, in unlikelier circumstances, an eating disorder, you should still go to your doctor or a therapist so you can try to overcome it. Try doing things that calm you down before these situations as well, like exercise, reading or listening to music (I'm not sure what relaxes you but sometimes these help). Also, you should try to slowly get used to the situations. So don't force yourself to eat straight away when you're out, but slowly start doing so whenever your comfortable with doing so. Unlike your mum wants, you can't just "stop" being scared because that's not how it works.  But right now, please don't force yourself into any of these situations. It's not good for your mental health to be forced to face a phobia of yours often.

Dear Dish-It, Within the last few years I have felt a bit sick and shaky when we go out to eat. It's not so bad when it's a carvery lunch or something at a pub, but settling down for a chocolate brownie and a milkshake shakes me up. Don't get me wrong, I love going out with Mum, but it's just sitting down and taking a bite. I want to chuck it in the bin. I love eating brownies and stuff at home and I'm pretty healthy. But I refuse to go to the town before lunch in fear. Mum told me I got to stop this or I'm going to develop a terrible phobia.  Please help! ElfyKathy, worried
