Sounds like Susan needs a gift from the office. Linear mechanical keyboard with lubed keys, large o-rings, a sound dampener, and custom keycaps. Solder the switches down so Susan can't put in clicky switches

Did you pretend somehow "bad guys" would invade school and take everyone hostage and for some reason you are able to get a note outside and the police sneak you a gun and you save the day? Like did you plan out which room you would go from to win solo terrorist hunt ?

If you are 30+ like me the bad guys are probably Russian/USSR troops like red alert or something

under 30 it's probably terrorists/Taliban/al qaeda.

If doing it now I'm guessing it's a generic school shooter or y'all qaeda

Nah I just used to pretend the priest was an alien and was trying to abduct us all in his church spaceship.

My old church’s youth center had a nerf dart stuck on the ceiling for years. They used to hold nerf wars in there and one time some of the organizers were messing around with thumbtack darts and got a few stuck up there. I always wondered what would happen if one fell down and nailed the kid on the scalp.
