CHILDHOOD IMAGINATION: THE LATEST DEADLY THREAT TO SAFETY. So says the Department of Health and Human Services. Via The Onion, that is. :-)
Although the exact number of child fatalities connected to an active imagination is unknown, experts say the danger is very real. According to a 2006 estimate, children who regularly engage in imagination are 10 times more likely to suffer injuries such as skinned knees from mythical quests, or bruises and serious falls from the peak of Bookcase Mountain.
