Your Kids Can Only Wish Their Playgrounds Were As Cool As The One Russian Kids Play In

Sure we get stuck with the politically correct “someone please think of the kids” generic plastic playgrounds when kids in Russia get to play on tanks.

Yes. Tanks.

It seems that in the Siberian city of Omsk the Russian government thought it would be a cool idea to take a bunch of decommissioned tanks, weld them shut, and put them in playgrounds around the city for the kids to play on.

You explain to your kids why they can’t have cool toys like these to play on.

Steven has been around the tech world long enough to see most of the stuff we think of cool happen before which leads to a certain bit of cynicism that has contributed to him being known as the cranky old fart of the Internet. Besides sharing some of the goodness that he finds with you here at 42x you can also find him curating some digital goodness at Winextra (tech type stuff) and Rotten Gumdrops (for your daily dose of WTF).
