    I especially liked the lawn darts picture with the kid with a dart through his neck. That was hillarious.

    It's quite ridiculous that tiny samples of alpha emitters and Wilson cloud chambers are listed here as "highly dangerous". To wax hyperbolic, it is an insult to the millions of veterans who died to give us freedom of press, for these lazy idiot "journalists" to squander it with their unresearched, unverified tripe.

    Hehe, look how the "journalist" puts " "very low-level" radiation sources" in quotes. She thinks it's ironic!

    "The brightly-colored disco ball cost 1,500 Chuck E. Cheese tickets. For the average skee-baller, that adds up to about 15 months of play at a cost of approximately $20,000."

    I had to laugh at that. I can remember convincing my parents to take me and some friends to chuck e. cheese's for a couple hours. Probably spent a good $100 playing the various games, and walked out with a few stickers you could get for $0.25 at the corner store. lol.

    And McDiabetes will kill a million times as many children as that whole list put together.

    We had both lawn darts and sky dancers! Fortunately, we all have at least one shred of intelligence too.
