Comment of the Week
“Back in the Dark Ages, when I was in high school, the school got a trampoline. It was big but completely unenclosed and therefore dangerous. The first person to use it promptly bounced off onto the floor and broke her arm. The school overreacted by getting rid of it. Most of us never got a chance to try it. Probably instruction and equipment have both improved since then.”
