This and every Monday, the Bweinh!tributors, having convened in secret for hours of reasoned debate and consideration, will issue a brief and binding ruling on an issue of great societal import.

This week’s question — What is the best piece of equipment on a playground?

Job delivers the ruling of the Council, joined by Tom and Mike:

Swings are hands down (and feet up) the best. Swinging can be a solitary or social activity, of varied pace and adventure level, and use is limited only by weight-bearing capacity.


Chloe also concurs in the judgment, joined by Djere:

The swings provide a freedom and weightlessness that doesn’t require the use of drugs or danger.


David dissents, joined by Josh and MC-B:

The spinning thing that you jump on after you get it going real fast by running and pushing it.


Steve dissents, joined by Erin:

The monkey bars allow you to clamber and hang, swing and dangle, and to be precisely as adventurous as you dare.


Connie dissents:

The park bench, because it allows me to pause and reflect on the world while simultaneously avoiding all the other vertigo-causing apparatuses.
