The CPSC has got some Balls.

And they want to take away everyone else’s.

Buckyballs, that is.

You may or may not have seen the Gizmodo story about the CPSC suing to get Buckyballs off the market. Read it.

The CPSC was created with the intention of preventing companies from selling products that they knew would be harmful even when used for their specifed purpose and in a sane and reasonable manner.

Nobody ever expected an adult to give powerful magnets to a child and leave them unattended.  But because there are stupid people in the world, someone did.  And because of a whole two incidents in a decade or so, the CPSC is coming down like a ton of shit on the heads of a company that makes a toy for adults.

Show them some support.  Got to www.getbuckyballs.com and buy some.  Like I did.

Then write your Congressmen and Senators and tell them to yank on the CPSC’s leash.
