I think that would be a pretty common result, if we could all see into the homelives of bullies. 

Ghostrider - you ever thought of looking yours up?

I came across another bully - he did some pretty nasty stuff to me and my freinds, also stole my bike once, smashed it up and then dumped it on my driveway. His name was Ian Bannister and i didn;t go looking for him, but it turned out he'd moved abroad, to Australia, and was now running abar on a beach and happily married.

Something about the fact that he'd 'turned out ok' lessened any bitterness I may have had towards him.

I have been on friends reunited, posted my name, but dont recognise ant familiar names. You do wonder what happened to these people. The one thing that has always stayed with me is that to this day, if someone accidentally touches me, a colleague pats me on the shoulder or whatever, i still jump / flinch. Its a protective mechanism.

Well when I eventually go back to Australia, if I ever see Ian Bannister, I'll punch in the face, and say 'Snap sends his regards!!!'

Yep, bullied at school and No, it is not the best time of your life.  Had teachers who were usless at dealing with it so i was glad to leave.  Thankfully never saw anyone once i left so that made it easier.

Still wary of new folk and try never to share too much.  My survival mechanism i guess.
