Best Buy

So I had a few dollars left over on my Best Buy gift card from Hanukah, and I couldn't really decide what I wanted. Then I remembered how awesome Winged Migration was and how it would make a good present for my Biology professor at the end of the semester. So I drove to Best Buy today to spend the remainder of the funds when I saw a... Kid on a Leash.

I haven't seen one of these suckers used since I went to Six Flags Atlantis Water Theme Park in North Miami when I was in Second Grade. (It was eventually closed because a girl died after falling off a particularly high water slide around 1992.)

I mean for crissakes, what's wrong with people? I was shocked to see people still using these on kids.

I had figured that technology has advanced atleast so far since '92 that we could expect remote control shock collars for toddlers by now. Well, it's Gainesville, what can you expect? I bet kids in Manhattan have Wi-Fi designer shock collars.

Perhaps, if the girl in Six Flags was wearing such a leash, that tragedy could have been prevented.

IMHO.

Linonel, wouldn't the correct "internet lingo" be "IANAL"?

Or is that pornographic? I forget.
