What are these called? http://www.barelythere.com/default.asp Made these in school. My friend says they called them 'cootie catchers'.. I don't think that is right. Girls made them with paper..don't think the boys took interest in them at all. Please help me remember. :banghead:
Thanks guys.. you all rock!:hyper:

    Well I never made a bra out of them, but we called them fortune tellers.

    There's a really funny South Park episode about them.

    We used to call them colourpickers. I make them all the time - usually when I'm bored at work :D

    We didn't have a name for them, if we wanted to describe them we would just do the hand movement.

    I had no idea what we called them but they were fun
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Ahh colour picker ! .. hah the memories of primary school.

    I've always wondered and never been able to, how do you actually make one ?

    Paper thingies I didn't call anthing. I just made them, and drew an angry face on them.

    If I did make ap roper one with words on, I put "You're a gaylord" under EVERY FLAP. Hahahahahahaaaaa.

    I'm sorry, that secret is kept within the confines of girly cliques, along with the knowledge of hop scotch.

    I can't see the pic but I think I know what you're talking about. We didn't call them anything.

    We call them "Himmel und Hölle" here (heaven and hell).

    4 pannels were coloured blue, the other 4 red. Another dude had to choose in which way you should open it, and it would either show 4 red or 4 blue pannels, deciding if they'd come into heaven or hell.

    TBH, I can make them. It in no way decreases my manliness, because each tab contains a carefull sculpted insult.

    I will teach any man willing to learn. As long as he shall buy me a drink.

    :o Rubberskin had an affair with his teacher! Scandal scandal!

    I remember writing death threats in chalk outside the canteen so when this girl walked out she'd see it. I think I had a crush on her at the time... :eek2: why did I think that would somehow make her like me? Who knows!

    (she did end up going out with me for like a week though :p in year 6! go me!)

    I thought the paper things were really boring. I liked it when girls gave you daisychains, as they often made 10 a lunchtime or something :p those were the days aye?

    Oh how I miss them so :(

    Oh my goodness you can't say that, more info! Heh, I used to have crushes on my teachers. They were female mind :p. I think it's because when you're young they teach and support ya, and you get an almost maternal protection thing from them, and since they're not technically your mother... I have no idea :confused:

    Apparently men want their wives to be like the mothers. I doubt mine will be though :p

    Fuck that ! Mine will be far FAR from anything like my mother.

    :thumb: Tops. There were a few teachers I'd do at school ;/ Wish I had.

    I might make one of those paper things to take to the meet. Hehe.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I'll write "buy Piccolo a drink" under every flap...
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    IIRC you make them in a very similar way to how you make the water bombs....

    We all know I'll be spending my afternoon.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru

    And they're right.

    I'm led to believe that's the american term for them.

    There's one in the trailer for Fable 2 :o

    Cor, that's a bit deep. Ours used to say stuff like "You will get a kiss from Andrew in class 3B" and "You will have a bad day next wednesday".

    Ooo, I used to be addicted to those! It was all the rage when I was at school. Funny thing is I don't think we ever called them anything...:chin:
