SpdrJay: This thread is dildos?
UsikFark: Buggar: Yeah they would have reacted the same way if the "field guide" said free bunnies!Kids would probably shake the bunnies to death.
Quantum Apostrophe: I had both. I grew up spending summers in a very rural setting with easy access to wilderness. Yet I was a bike ride from a town center. Back then the dollar stores were called "People's". I went there and bought lots of plastic soldiers with parachutes and stuff. I played with them outside tossing them in the air or at trees, climbing to retrieve them, etc..While doing that I saw berries, mushrooms, all kinds of bugs, frogs, the farm next door (the farmer's daughter...), etc.Why is everything so segmented and rigid now?
Gyrfalcon: Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: I read that three times, and it seems like they're getting their premise from a commercial for a toy store... But that can't be right.Yes, strangely, a commercial proves that kids would rather go to the store the commercial is advertising for than go to an unnamed boring field that the store is not advertising for.I'm sure it's horrifyingly obvious to anyone except "Opposing Views" that a commercial created by, say, Sea World would prove kids would rather watch dolphins frolick in the water than go to a toy store...and a commercial created by the Park Service would show kids having orgasms at spending the day at the beach instead of inside all day playing Grand Theft Auto EleventyFive.But must sell those clicks!
itsaidwhat: SpdrJay: This thread is dildos?No, breast implants and someone should explain to America's 'yutes that "plastic" surgery doesn't use plastic.
Nick Nostril: ladyfortuna:I do fear that someday soon, the majority of people will have been brought up with little to no exposure to the natural world, and thus there will no longer be a majority in favor of preserving areas like national parks/forests. Hopefully it doesn't happen until after I'm dead...Amen. I don't mind if they don't want to clog up the natural areas I frequent, but I also don't want them going all Rush Limbo and deciding to pave them over to make a buck.
ladyfortuna: Wizard Drongo: WxGuy1: Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: I read that three times, and it seems like they're getting their premise from a commercial for a toy store... But that can't be right.This. It's a farking commercial for Toys R Us. Of course it would be done such that kids would go crazy when told that they're going to Toys R Us for a free toy. This is one of the more perplexing "articles" I've seen lately.It's even more retarded than that. The actual ARTICLE itself references a scientific study (as opposed to a commercial for a shiatty retailer) that says kids DON'T prefer plastic to nature - they spent more time playing with the wildlife when presented the option than the toys.Stupid headline is stupid.I'm just glad they included that much real information.I do fear that someday soon, the majority of people will have been brought up with little to no exposure to the natural world, and thus there will no longer be a majority in favor of preserving areas like national parks/forests. Hopefully it doesn't happen until after I'm dead...
CipollinaFan: No real childhood is complete without playing with Army Men in the woods or at the beach
