Ha, we did this in high school sorta, but we just called it full contact 
chess. Then again, math league was full contact too - when they brought 
out the donuts, because lets face it, all donuts are not created greater 
than or equal to the glazed jelly donut.

Maybe it's just how teenagers are, and the people in the article didn't 
grow out of it?

Why in my day, high school wasn't all about smoking pot and sex, and we 
didn't myspace from our PDA all day, we had to read books and take 
tests. The dollar was still in use, so we wanted to get good jobs, not 
just slack our whole life away. And it's called goth, not emo ya freak.
