I was in Pontiac Illinois this weekend and came across some old school playground equipment that was overlooked in a neglected part of town. It has been yeeears since I’ve seen see-saws and metal slides as they have replaced most of them with BORING and safe plastic monstrosities and are both accident proof and play proof as far as I can tell. I’ve tried playing in the new ones and I’ve seen kids “playing” on the new ones. Let me just say that I completely understand why kids play video games.
