    ya I know, its called common sense.

    my dad use to do alot of design work for large playgrounds [civil engineer]. I asked him not that long ago if any of them were still around [these were all those massive wood structures of the 80's, some of them 3 full stories tall, massive]... nope, not a single one.

    There was an auction at one of the mcdonalds by my house a few years ago that I meant to attend, accidently slept in. anyways the hamburgler playset thing when for a whopping 20 bucks. sigh.

    Man if I could count the amount of bruises and injuries that I had as a kid from those old playgrounds....they never phased you either, just get up and keep going. We had one with a diamond plate floor, that felt awesome when you fell on it, I whacked my shin on the end of it once... I think it still hurts!!!

    Right by my house was this wooden playground... and by playground I mean CASTLE

    This thing was a beast. Every peice of equipment you could imagine. The place was huge.

    I found out that about five months ago they tore it down, its now classified as a Superfunds site

    That spaceship rocks! I want one!

    I remember in elementary school playground there was this huge pyramid made from tires. And there was actually a second level on the inside of it. I also remember huge chunks of salt laying on the ground all the time from when they would throw salt out during the winter.
