Didn't you know that life is fatal if you live long enough?
I heard about this today. it is the most rediculous crap! To many people are doing the politically correct thing and now it has resluted in removing swing sets? What has this world come to?? I live near Plano, but thank God at this time my son goes to a school with a swing set that all the kids enjoy!
The only way to protect children from all the dangers of childhood is to abort them!!!
I hate lawyers. They take the fun out of life. Of course, it's in our own best interest. For our own safety you know.
I've lived in Japan. They have the best parks. I've always made the comment that if they had parks likes them in the States that a gang of lawyers would be hanging around passing out their cards. They have the best play ground equipment, and a lot less lawyers.
They need one of those good old Giant Strides, Maypole. We had one when I was a youngen and that thing had to have been designed by a plaintiff's attorney.
Tall metal pole with chains hanging down with a handle on the end. Hold on to the handle and everyone runs around until it's going fast enough to pick up your feet and fly around. The problem with this ride was the dismount - usually you got tired of hanging on and either 1. fell onto the gravel below or 2. hung on and drug your feet trying to get it to slow down while getting smacked in the head by recently vacated handles around you.
Kids these days are wussies!!
Moms today never say, "Go outside and play." Instead they say, "Hurry up, you're late for soccer/basketball/chess/baseball/etc/etc practice." A shame.
Few kids today actually understand what "playing" is all about. A shame.
It was prompted by fear of a lawsuit.
