Got caned across the tush when I was 12 in the 70s. "Spidey" (so named because he had hairy legs) and I were messing around with a pen and a piece of string instead of paying attention, and our teacher, "Pussy" (so named because he had a moustached that looked like whiskers - these were innocent times) lost patience, took us outside and let us have it with a thin cane he kept for the purpose.

Don't want to sound like one of those old farts who huffs and puffs about how the army or some other horror was the making of him, but getting caned sure got my attention. I got focussed real quick after that.
