Godscrack: Does he still live on the second floor?
BlackMtnMan: Isn't spinjitsu some kind of kinky Japanese sex act?
Sin_City_Superhero: Another damn liberal, asking corporate America for a handout. Stupid crotch-crab should've spent his Christmas money on bootstraps, so he'd have something to pull himself up by.
Thunderpipes: Legos are neat, but you pay 50-50 bucks for a tiny set that makes one specific thing.

addy2: digitalrain: Some companies really go out of their way for kids. The year my youngest turned 10, he wasnuts about the THX trailers. He has Asperger's and tends to really hyper-focus on his interests.At any rate, he really wanted a DVD of nothing but the THX trailers. Problem is, no such thingexisted.I emailed the PR department at THX and explained the situation. A couple of days before myson's birthday party, a box arrived from the good folks at THX. In it where 3 different DVDs ofthe THX trailers, a birthday card with a handwritten note, and a squishy THX mechanic figure.It made my son's birthday like you would not believe.These days, and for some time now, his big interest is weather. He wants to be a meteorologistlike nobody's business. I emailed all of our local news stations to see if they allowed any kind oftours of the studio. About a week later I get an email from the chief meteorologist from WESH 2in Orlando wanting to know when we could get up there for a 6pm newscast.So that Friday, my husband, my mom, my son and I drove out to the station. They brought usinto the studio to watch the news being broadcast. My son got to sit up in the computer nestwith the tech who controls the cameras and about halfway through the broadcast, he got to situp in the Weather Center (off camera, but still there) with the meteorologist.All of that was cool enough, but he had the tech leave up all of the weather graphics and thegreen screen and after the news cast was over, he let my son do a run through of the weekendweather report and 7-day forecast.It was the coolest thing. Even though my son is only 11, nobody talked down to him. He and themeteorologist talked weather, what he needed to do in school to become a meteorologist, all ofthe different jobs available in the field, etc...Here is my little guy (pardon the fuzzy pics - we only had my husband's cell with us and thecamera on it is crap):[sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net image 640x480][sphotos-b.x ...
