I'm so glad we've taken care of the threat of trampolines, if only I had kept them out of my four children's lives, they would be much healthier today!

Now we can deal with the real threat to safety, do you know how many people get hurt while walking? Many more people get hurt while walking than get hurt on a trampoline, the percent of people injured is also higher! NO MORE WALKING!

They are a lot of fun, though.

Which child is healthier? The one that never leaves the safety of the couch, who is 20 pounds over-weight or the one that gets injured from jumping on a trampoline everyday.

So is climbing trees, swimming, running, any game involving a ball, swinging, bicycling, roller skating, dancing, and any activity that may possibly have the plus side of being good for you.

Heck, even breathing in and out brings you a step closer to death every second. What a bunch of paranoid, litigious ninnies we've become.
