To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury
Hello. I used to be a regular contributor here. I seldom node now, although lately I've taken to surfing the site again. My current main pastime is making images, usually in photoshop, usually by digitally drawing/painting, although I occasionally manipulate photos. I post predominantely on the b3ta.com messageboard, hailed by The Guardian newspaper as a "puerile digital arts community".
You'll see a copy of the dead rat game by zhaus reproduced below. I see that the original node has now been reinstated, which I feel is a good sign, both for this site and for the world in general. I'm going to leave my copy of it right here though, because you never know. You just never know.

One stands on the mountain peak, quiet and alone. One stands in the marketplace, streaked with the dust of cart and horses. Who is front? Who is back?

Spinning the rat on the tail needs more and more practice, but can you do it! It is to be done to play the game to fun. Having the rat the First Person spin it over it's tail. Run away he does then so other friends left look at rat spin fun. Then&he make fun of other friends because they're not knowing what fun comes next. He take hose and sprays friends so fun! They get mad but he talk to them, "they were silly fun to watch dead rat." Then all are funny happy.
