    Maybe it`s a playground for handicapped kids in wheelchairs? You push `em up the ramp, and let `em climb down the rope ladder. (They don`t yet have the strength to climb up the ladder, but going down is doable)

    I couldn`t figure out the humor in this picture. We have a slide just like this in our small town. Yes there are splinters...but how many times have you got stuck on an aluminum or metal slide? You can actually go pretty fast down these, believe it or not. Plus, you dont stop till you hit the ground, which is unbelievably fun.

    Recession? Nah...great slide for a kid.

    Why does everyone think that "touching wood" = "getting splinters"? That looks like it`s been sanded a lot; I doubt anyone ever got a splinter from that.
    So it may not be the prettiest, or most expensive, or even most fun slide, but it works.

    Back in my day all playgrounds looked like this, and they were a lot more fun than that brightly coloured plastic crap the kids of today have to play on. I recall one of my favourite slides, was probably about a metre taller than this one, and consisted of just one square wooden beam around the width of one of the planks on this slide, which we slid down with one leg on each side of. Sadly it`s now been replaced by something "safe".

    By the way, we never got splinters. Harden up you sissys.

    Judging by age you have to remember this one, the Aluminum Slide from hell. Those sons of bitches got up to 100+ degrees during the summer. Kids actually had to go to the hospital for burns. I`d rather have splinter butt than ass skin graphing ANY DAY.

    This is actually that fiberboard stuff they sell in home improvement stores for patios. It doesn`t splinter. But even still, I don`t think this is a slide. More likely a type of obsticle course for kids and they run up that part? Just my opinion, I might be wrong :P

    You damn pussies. Wooden slides are the best kind - you absolutley fly down these suckers. There`s none of this wrapping-your-children-in-bubble-wrap plastic slide crap goes on here in Scotland, all that does is create generation after generation of utter wussies - hence, I guess, all the people on here crapping themselves about splinters.
