I would like one, but wife/kid/money say otherwise. It's honestly pretty low on the list of inappropriate things I'd like to try. Somewhere after magic mushrooms, fireworks, arson, three-ways,...

Thank God we didn't have any of those things when I was young.

Yes, it's true Sweden seems to have bottomed out. Maybe that's where the South is headed now.
