Not so sure about that Larry.    What would be your first reaction to seeing a national flag of a country that had a "screw" "ed" on their flag.      Hmmmmm ?

...Those toys were from the good old days when children's toys were fun and dangerous...

A few years back I found a boxed 'toy' at a boot sale. The seller said it was his when he was a kid. A flat grey cardboard box with a picture on the front which showed two very young kids (8 and 10 ish) in short trousers standing over a gas cooker heating up lead to make toy boats, cars, soldiers etc. Sure enough inside the box were pieces of lead, a ladle to place the lead in and hold whilst the lead melted over the gas flame of the cooker, and little moulds to pour the molten lead into.

I guess it seemed normal back then to buy that for the kids.  :o
