@Random882 - Log?! Are you referring to the commercial in angry beavers:
Log, log, it`s big, it`s heavy, it`s wood.
Log, log, it`s better than bad, it`s good!

you have to place it closer to the edge of the stairs, also it works better on stairs that haven`t got carpeting on them... for a more fun thing to do with a slinky; step one: grab one end of slinky and have a friend (or just a random bystander) grab the other end. step two: walk away in opposing directions for at least half of a city block. step three: at the same moment (a countdown helps this) let go of your ends... TA-DA! Slinky knot!

Am I the only twisted bastard that hung metal slinkys from the ceiling??? I used to have a bunch of them hanging all over my room. My room looked like a giant spring factory.

Think that may be the cause of my current obsession with Steampunk???????

You could use your imagination you know, I used to look through my slinky like a space vortex tube, constantly twisting and turning in a wormhole until I came out into a different part of the house.

I still love you slinky... Sure, maybe you don`t go down the stairs so well, but you`re still fun.

OH, and, *cough*

Some people are like Slinkys. Not really good for anything, but you can`t help but smile as you watch them tumble down the stairs.

Never worked on ordinary stairs. Got to side with The Oatmeal on this - Slinky does not deliver.

I had a slinky when I was a kid. It was AWESOME. My stairs were perfectly engineered for maximum slinky-distance. 9 times out of 10, it would go at least 1/2 way down the stairs. Of course the shallow run meant I tended to slip and fall down the stairs, too. I inevitably went at least 1/2 way down as well. /:

Also, plastic slinkys suck ass.

My slinky ALWAYS tangled up with itself until there was no way I could use it and it was just a big pile of tangled mess. It started with one ring going out of place and then it spread like a plague

"The Slinky and Silly Putty. We all had them and we didn`t know why."

I had Silly Putty because you could stretch it out, press it down on the comics in the newspaper, and it`d end up with a reverse print of the comic. As for Slinkies, you could hold them in your hand and make them bounce around, which I remember being somehow fun. Actually, we did that with gigantic Slinkies in Physics this year when we were supposed to be mimicking waves.

You really had to have the right run & rise to your stairs and even then you had to put a lot of energy into it to go more than 2 steps.

I smashed my slinky with my pet rock back in the 70s.

My pet rock was very useful.



Haha I had a pet rock growing up too...except he was useless `-_-

Haha, and even if it did work for a couple stairs, the stairs were either too long or too short for it to go down properly.

And then my little brother would find a way to break it the next day.

That never happened but I did have the slinky go down two steps and then BARREL ROLL down the rest of the steps... it was like it had club foot.

They were fun when you could actually get them to work or your 2 year old sister didn`t tangle it up.
