as dangerous as the battlestar galactic missle launcher?

I was relaxing after finals reading about the 10 most dangerous play things of all time, cruising past the lawn darts and the Atomic Engergy Lab, when I discovered something interesting:

Sky Dancers, quite possibly one of the sweetest toys my sister ever received, was added to the list because “over 150 children fell prey to Sky Dancer’s helicopter-blade arms and erratic ‘Oh-Jesus-it’s-chasing-me!’ flying patterns. Injuries included scratched corneas and temporary blindness, mild concussions, broken ribs and teeth, and facial lacerations that required stitches.”

I remember my sister and I playing with this toy all the time and being especially careless. I’m lucky I wasn’t disemboweled.

  2. Hannah and I used to send hers flying from what amounted to a very high second story window over the cement patio – the times that we didn’t get her stuck in the 50ft. pine tree, we would make Josie fetch them from the grass and run them back upstairs to us. Classic.
