Scene from the Minecraft server logs

Our household server logs reveal that stratestar110, a 10 year-old girl was playing with bumppup, an 8 year-old boy, playing as the admin. The first transaction was innocent enough:

[INFO] <stratestar110> CAN I HAVE BRICK BLOCKS
[INFO] CONSOLE: Giving stratestar110 some 45


The girl asked the admin to give her some blocks, and "CONSOLE" shows that he issued the command to give her what she wanted. Then the following happened:

[INFO] <bumppup> Lok at me.
[INFO] <stratestar110> WHERE ARE YOU
[INFO] <bumppup> Look at me!
[INFO] <stratestar110> WHERE ARE YOU
[INFO] <stratestar110> HOW DO YOU DO THAT
[INFO] <bumppup> Look at me!
[INFO] <stratestar110> CAN YOU GIVE NE 64 BRICK BLOCKS
[INFO] <bumppup> I am down here.
[INFO] <bumppup> Look at me then I wiil give you 64 bricks.
[INFO] CONSOLE: Giving stratestar110 some 45


They were in classic form. The boy just wanted somebody to look at something cool he was doing, and the girl just wanted some more stuff. Same as it ever was. Those are my kids.
