Dangerous Things you SHOULD let your kids do...

The world has become increasingly safe, some from government that wants to protect you, others from stupid labels on coffee cups that say "WARNING: Contents are HOT".. duhh...

Another pet peeve of mine, why are chemistry kits becoming obsolete? Well they have chemicals that can be dangerous, well yeah that was part of the attraction. If the concern is about terrorism and extremists that will build bombs and hurt people, trust me, if they want to hurt people, they will find a way, stopping the supply of chemistry sets won't curtail the efforts...

If you can buy stuff at the grocery or farm supply store to make a bomb, why can't we have simple chemistry sets ? truly absurd...

This video is just an example of some of things that we should encourage all of our children to experience.

Also a short plug for the book "The Dangerous Book for Boys"
