Tech Central Station - Bad Cartoons Make Bad Citizens
For the record I grew up on a steadfast diet of re-run Warner Brother cartoons full of avils crushing people, people walking off of cliffs and not falling right away (did you know that's not how it really works?), and ACME products that never seemed to work as advertised (I tried calling the Better Business Bureau on that one, but they just laughed). I couldn't stand the Super Friends... I thought they were dumb. I guess I was a pretty smart kid.
I wonder if the same people who came up with the Super Friends were later involved in the A-Team? Think about it... they all had machine guns, but never ever seemed to actually hit anyone with them. But boy could they shoot out a tire and flip a car every single episode. Of course the people in the car always walked away from it unscathed. Hmmmmm.
