A friend and I were talking about the fidget spinners recently, when we realized we have become Statler and Waldorf (the old guys in the balcony on the Muppet Show).

"We didn't have fidget spinners! We had the fidget rake! And the fidget hedge clippers! And the fidget mop and bucket!"

Yelling is how he communicates to begin with. He's like an artist that uses the word "fuck" as his paintbrush.




Train how you intend to Fight

Remember - Training is not sparring. Sparring is not fighting. Fighting is not combat.

I just saw a report of a child choking on a piece from one of these stupid things, luckily she survived and they got it out of her windpipe.

The fidget doodads aren't stupid, children are stupid, and insist on putting things in their mouths. As a parent, you gotta know your own kids, and not hand them things they're liable to kill themselves with. When I was 15 I got a .22 for my birthday, my brother got no such thing, because fathero could trust me not to do something dumb with it. My brother, eeeeeh, not so much.

You'd think a 10 year old would know better.

Fidget spinners - Rosaries for the uninitiated.

When i was a kid visiting Greece, I purchased a 'worry stone'. Basically a polished flat piece of rock that had a dished out section that you held in your hand and rubbed with you thumb until you either ground through the stone or got tired.

Pet rock with a purpose.

Believe it or not, my wife just presented me with one, she says ordered six months ago, from China (eBay most likely). Mine will go for 8 minutes with one firm flick. It even came with a spare bearing and small screwdriver to replace it with, and a case.
 
Back when I was a lad, in the 1950's, we had our own fidget spinners, which you could even do tricks with. The best brand was Duncan.
