    Default Yo-Yos

    Does anyone else remember the yo-yo craze in the 80s? It was huge where I grew up, everyone had one! They were sort of chunky plastic yo-yos in cool colours with glitter...They eventually banned them at our school for being too distracting and too dangerous..

    I was thinking about yo yo's the other day. I remember the coca cola, sprite and fanta ones. I think you had to collect the ring pulls to get one. Does any one remember the tricks? Walking the dog, around the world..........any more?

    The Yo Yo craze seems somewhat cyclical. For me the Yo Yo craze was back when I was in elementary school around 1975.

    Now of course YoYo's are chocolate biccies

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.
