The Gas Chamber
 Shadows crept across the wall of the boarding school dormitory.There was utter silence. It was so quiet you could hear a pindrop. Which was unusual with eight boisterous, hormonalteenagers forced into one room, with too much energy to sleep ata ridiculously early hour. We were playing
, a WWII
 prisoner of war series on the telly. Six of us ‘prisoners’ would
hide at various points in the dormitory, while the two remaining
‘guards’ would take a flashlight and try and find us.

LOL, funny but it also captures the way in which some of the great tragedies of mankind filter down to the games children play. It also reminded me of a "duel" I had when I was a little kid where we used this type of "weapon."
