    Did you grow up with an older/bigger brother? Did you guys roughouse and joke around? Was your mom always yelling to stop?

    I grew up with two older brothers. There were good and bad things about it. The good things include learning how to defend yourself early on and occasionaly they would help me out. The bad part was torturing me, like forcing me to eat a bug or picking me up and dangling me above a pile of dog shit until I did what they wanted....LOL

    With Thanksgiving approaching, we will all see each other again and the rable-rousing continues, but on a milder verbal level.

    One older brother. I got beat on occasionally. Probably the worst was once when we were messing around and somehow a knife sort of got stuck in my thigh.. I'll never forget the blood staining my jeans. I was in 4th grade.
    I still have the scar.

    My older brother and I are pretty close in age. I've noticed people that are closer in age don't argue as much... maybe because we had the same interests. Once in a while we'd fight, but I dunno if we have ever actually "fist-fought" (If we did I don't remember). He used to throw June bugs at me and tortured me with grubs though :[.

    When we were babies it was non-stop, because he wasn't used to someone else having the attention. Haha, I threw TV remotes (What we call clickers in our household icon_biggrin.gif) at him.

    Now we only see each other every once in a while due to different schools. We miss each other, haha.

    I was the older brother, I didn't pick on my younger siblings particularly but I would take some advantages of their younger inexperienced status occassionally. For several years, If something I'd done was met with their displeasure, I could keep them from telling on me by letting them hit me as hard as they could so they did the punishing instead of my parents. It worked quite well. LOL !!! They couldn't really hurt me, so I was saved from a possible paddling by taking a minor annoyance.

    My brother beat the crap out of me every chance he got. He is six years older than me. So suffice it to say that he was bigger.

    Once it put me in the holding pin with our guard dog which I was not allowed to play with because he knocked me down once when he leaped on my chest, he was playing but it scared the crap out of me and our parents.

    It all stopped when I was 17 years old and brother is 6 feet tall and 185 of pure muscle still to this day.

    Anyway he kept picking on me and he was standing by some bay windows that were open, I got so incensed that I just pushed him out the window.

    I caught him and I was holding his legs and after that he never bothered my again.

    No we're not close. I don't like him at all, really.

    I have 3 older brothers and we used to fight a little when we were young but really not so much I can remember. I don't remember them helping me a lot in anything when I was small. If anything I was closer to my sister who was more into playing fantasy games which they weren't into at all. We went to the same school so I was just another Smith to the teachers which was annoying.

    Now we're all adults we're not particularly close although we see each other at Christmas and occasionally at times in the summer.

    I think having siblings makes you much more considerate and tolerant towards other people. (just a theory mind).

    I'm the older brother. I was the academic one, my younger brother the athletic one. I didn't really pick on him that much - at least in my memory. He might remember it differently. He was always harassing me to get more attention, though.

    Quick story. I was sitting at the dining room table doing homework. My brother would run up from behind, hit me on the back of the head and keep running, trying to get a rise out of me. My parents witnessed it but didn't say anything. He did it again. On the third go, I just held out my fist behind me and he ran directly into it, knocking him to the floor. He went crying to mom and dad, who just sent him to his room.

    Ha! My brother and I have never really got along... he's got a terrible temper. We only all get along now cause his wife makes him be nice. He keeps saying we should go on The Amazing Race... it would be the funniest TV on each week.

    One older brother, he's 31, I'm 26. The two of us rarely got along when we lived at home. Now that we're grown up, we get along with each other. I only see him half a dozen times a year. He has a short fuse and gets pissed easily.

    My brother and I are so completely different, it's amazing to think were even related. I can't think of anything we share an interest in. Our opinions on things are always different. But he's my brother, he's family.

    one older brother, he would mock me and harass me... but i got him back ten fold

    i tell ppl that im a younger brother, so i learned how to fight dirty, ill do whatever i have to do to inflict as much pain as possible to your body.

    things i did to my brother:

    threw a cup full of super hot water onto him while he showered

    rose a B.B. gun to him (never actually fired)

    threw a fake snake toy at his back so hard it gave him a welt across his back about 8 inches long.

    once when we were home alone he had friends over, they wouldnt let me play wth them so i put a bunch of ketchup around my eye and ran into the front room the "fell" to the ground and started screaming in pain, that freaked him out real good

    I admit that I was jealous.

    I sooo wanted an older brother. I think i even asked my parents for one when I was younger. I didn't know much about biology then. But i saw my friends who had older brothers and they seemed so happy and "protected". I know that they had scraps n tantrums, but in my (clearly) romatic version, they also had somebody to pave the way n support them. Yet in many cases, if your mum n dad don't fuck you up, then ur siblings r sure to step in to finish the job. My conclusion is that the best solution is to "adopt". A gay big bro would be ideal.

    I grew up with two older [sisters]. There were good and bad things about it. The good things include learning how to defend yourself early on and occasionaly they would help me out. The bad part was torturing me, like forcing me to eat [their weird concoctions] or [burying me in snow and leaving me outside] until I did what they wanted....LOL

    I had an older brother. He was a complete arse! He was 9 yrs older. That dolt did two things to me that I never forgave......
    1. Made me eat yellow snow.
    2. Locked me in the dumbwaiter, tied it off between floors, and left me there for a day and a half. We bloody hated one another. icon_mad.gif

    As we grew older, our dislike grew too. LOL! Needless to say we never got along. But he is no longer alive. So now we get on quite well. icon_wink.gif
    I also got the last laugh in on him. He wanted to be cremated upon his death. So after he was placed in the family mausoleum, I went back on his birthday and removed his ashes. Remember the yellow snow incident? Well his remains were mixed with yellow water and flushed away. Now that was payback! icon_lol.gif

    Cheers,
    Keith
