    Well the one I saw was a rather executive metal one. My old one was the large, plastic and stripy variety. It worked going down steps

    They're how I 'learned' about wave types in physics. So no, not overly cool. Maybe I'm just bitter because mine would never go down stairs properly though.

    I've lived in a bungalow all my life. I feel robbed of an integral part of childhood, really.

    When you plummet head long down a flight of stairs to your death you'll finally appreciate the prophetic nature of your slinky and of course at the same time, wish you'd taken symbology more seriously in your days working in a Shinto monastery, dummkopf! that's why there was a barely concealed slinky in the middle of the rock garden! How many signs do you need! What do you want a naked Indian in your dreams to spell it out!

    For more prophecy call: 087652 3746322 calls will cost too much spiritually, and leave you with a sense of dread and fatalist acceptance that frankly you could of done without.

    My sister purchased one of these again the other day. She keeps getting the spring twisted within itself and my Dad spends ages trying to untangle the mess. They're cool, but I don't think I'd actually go and buy one myself. When I was younger, of course I would.
