Will The Stupidity Never End

You realize, of course, that someday all activities which feature exhilarating speed will be outlawed.

At the federal level, Health Canada recommends that all children use a helmet when sledding.

In some provinces, most recently Ontario, suggestions have been made to encourage safer sledding but none have tabled any formal legislation.

Francescutti said that although helmets are not a requirement by law, they should be something that parents - at a minimum - should make their kids comply with.

And he thinks adults should wear them, too.

"If you require them for kids, why wouldn't you require them for adults?" he said.

That jerk probably wears a helmet when he's sitting on the can, in case of meteors.

Don't laugh at the hapless Canadians. Don't you friggin' laugh.

Remember that on some US playgrounds, running is verboten.

I think about some of the toys I used to play with when I was a kid that were made of tin with razor-sharp edges; the tall trees we used to climb and occasionally fall out of; the miles-long walks and bike rides we used to take while our parents had no Earthly clue where the Hell we were; and the myriad of things we set on fire just to watch them burn.

Kids today are so totally screwed.

In thirty years they'll embrace all the restrictive laws anybody ever throws at them, because they haven't been raised to understand the dangerous and essential nature of freedom.
