Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Trampoline in a ball pit, obviously.

I worked a few summers in collage at an amusement park that had a ball pit, lets just say I don't want my kid in one of those unless it is right after they put new balls in and mine is the only kid in there.

It wasn't so much the snake bites as the 50 aids-infected heroin needles sticking out of their backs that concerned me.

Neither. I know its probably totally unfounded, but wasn't there some crap about used syringes in the ball pits? That's enough to keep me from letting my kid near one.

And I work in the insurance industry, so I know that trampolines are death traps.

I dislocated my knee on a trampoline when I was a kid. Either one is bad.

Ball pits....nasty nasty crap! I've seen kids vomit in them. We were at Mickey D's once & a little girl found a diaper with crap inside one. Ewww...I still shudder when I think about that.

Also.....my son had a trampoline. I caught him & his friends jumping off the top of his clubhouse roof onto it. Later learned that they had once dragged it over to the garage & jumped off the garage roof onto it. Boys. *sigh*

I worked at a place that had giant inflatables for kids/parents to jump around in. One of which had a ball pit in it. I had to go in there several times each day and hand clean them. I cleaned balls. Those were some clean balls.
I guess it depends where you go. Also, I love trampolines and have one. So I never grew up. MEOW! :3

I just got my kids boxing gloves when I wanted to see them injure themselves. At least then they had some input in how it happens.
