    Who says our kids are falling behind the Japanese kids?

    Inovation, determination, creativty and good old American know how (and a trip to the hardware store) and you can acomplish anything.

    A true testiment to our American schools system.

    Isn't this the type of stuff parents should be watching their children for? These are the types of ideas that some useless twit is going to use in a mall, in a school (a la Columbine), or some dirtbag terrorist will modify it.

    This is more than job security, this is insanity.
