As a science geek who grew up with chemistry sets and microscopes, I've been watching the dumbing down of kids science toys with dismay. It follows the trend, especially since 9/11 of "protecting" us from ourselves. Anything with the perceived remote chance of hurting ourselves or others is way too dangerous for us to have.

This cartoon starts to sum it up.

Taken without permission (sorry), from todays Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal, a geeky cartoon that it in my rss feed so I don't miss it. Go follow it also.
