TOYS FOR OCD KIDS

I've bitched about Wheel-O in the deep dark past, but somehow it still occasionally burbles to the top of my consciousness, the psychological equivalent of a spoilt burrito.



I HAD to have a Wheel-O as a kid. When I got one, it dawned on me it was a five minute toy. The wheel goes up, the wheel goes down. The wheel goes up, the wheel goes down. What the fuck, over?

TAKEN. Just like I was taken by Spielberg with that butt-awful miniseries, I was taken by Wham-O, or whoever was popping these puppies out at the time.

It pissed me off when I was seven, it pisses me off to this day.

I just can't let go.

The commercials made it apear difficult. It was subliminally sold as a Skill. When you saw the retarded girl down the street had mastered it, a little more of your innocence was lost.

I got two words for childhood disappointment stories: sea monkeys.

Perhaps you could send one to O'Reilly. He'd surely have hours of enjoyment. Maybe they'll put it on the little text news bar and spell Wheel-O wrong.

How I turned this into a Fox News jibe I don't know.

Mindlessness can be gooood.

I still own Play-Doh. I smell it, I'm 5 again.
I own crayons and a few coloring books.
I watch Looney Tunes.

We spent yesterday making Spongebob characters from Play-Doh.

I color regularly.

We have one of those Wheel-O things......but it's a Dizzy Dolphin. The spinning dolphin doesn't stay on because the cheap ass thing has a REMOVABLE plastic doohickey that SHOULD hold it together and allow you to spin the damn thing for hours.....but inevitably causes the dolphin to go flying across the room at about 500 mph and nail someone in the head. It's come in handy as a behavioral modification device.

And how about that Slinky?

It's amazing to see, but what does it do?

It just goes downhill.

What is it about Play-Doh that just makes ya wanna bite the stuff?
lmao at 'Eat it and I'm 5 again"...

I tried biting it once when I was in first grade or so. Still smells the same. I'm just gonna assume it still tastes the same, too.
Ick.

Good question. The anwser to your question is no killer whales (in their natural environment, of course) would not hunt/kill/eat humans. The reason is simple there is not enough blubber (fat) on our bodies for us to be nutritionally valuable to them. I know this sounds kind of crazy, but their sense of echolocation can tell killer whales how dense something is. Hence, how much fat is on a prey's body. There have only been 2 documented cases of killer whale attacks on humans only one was fatal.This is not to say that this could never happen. Anything could happen they're wild animals. Perhaps if someone were quite large with a lot of fat on their bodies? (And I don't mean that in a mean way)And just for the record, killer whales don't usually eat manatees either because they don't have much fat on their bodies, like us. They're herbivores so there is not any fat in their diet. Also, their skin is too thick.
