Very cool commercials for back to school featuring Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Power Rangers, and I think I saw a Transformer.
Is it just me or do kids keep getting a shorter and shorter summer. I think in ten years they'll have like a week off. Obviously, schools need to focus more on quality, not quantity because more of the same isn't going to make smarter kids just fatter kids who don't know what summer is supposed to be for. They should make a law that kids have to play outside for at least 2 hours a day. If nothing else they could pretend to be superheroes.
I remember when I was a kid I had a rubber hose tied to a tree over a big ditch that I would swing over like Spider-man. I think I invented bungee jumping. Ok, it wasn't that far down, but it seemed like it was a long ways down at the time. That was back when Spider-man and his Amazing Friends were on television.
That also reminds me of the time I shot a bibee gun into a tree and the the bibee bounced off the tree and came straight back at my face. It gave me an idea of what it's like to see a bullet coming at me. Luckily it was a cheap gun and just stung a little.
