Got any stick chat?

Pooh sticks is a bit of a crap game. Good use of bridges though.

Dogs like sticks a lot, that’s good.

Think that’s covered everything.

Well up a bit when I see how much the stick kids miss their stick Dad.


#3

welcome to the boards!


#4

what’s the difference between a stick and a twig


#5

Good question. I think a twig is a bit smaller and more spindly.


#6

I’ve always considered a stick to be bigger than a twig, though I think there is an overlap between the two where either term could apply.

Forest > Wood > Tree > Log > Branch > Stick > Twig > Sapling

Spent a good half hour splitting sticks on Saturday. Then running another stick down the middle to get long ribbons of foam out which my son would then float across a large, rain filled, rusty wok.

Good times.

Here is the inside of some empty sticks:

Foam inside sticks? What the hell are you on about?


#11

please don’t dignify this


#12

Not such a stick expert, are ya? Please see above picture (this is not bamboo but a proper stick). Unfortunately the foam has been removed.


#13

Who took the photo?


#14

I have to take issue with you. Pooh sticks is not a crap game.

There, I’ve said it.


#15

I did. Impressed?


#16

I am impressed.


#17

If you know better, please enlighten me


#18

Impressed and suspicious, the magic combo.


#19

It’s actually only 10% of the picture. The whole thing is Guernica standard (if Guernica was a photo and used a small boy playing with sticks on a bench as the allegory for bombing a village).
