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!

well this is kind of a long story but ill try to make it as short as possible. so it all started about 4 years ago. this new boy came to my school. he was super cute and all the girls had a crush on him. at first i did not like him in a crush way but after a while feelings started growing. we started talking and he seemed to like me to. after elementary was done we ended up going to the same middle school.fast forward to this year me and him are in the same class. while i was in 6th grade i found my best friend me and her been bffs since then. she is also in the same class. ever since the begging of this year they grew really close. they are always talking and it seems like she like him and vice versa. every time they are together i feel this overwhelming since of jealousy and anger. like is she better than me or??? the thing that really gets to me is that she knew i liked him. omg i need advice like what should i do :mad
