Bravo. Cool charts buddy. Kids learn a large portion of coolness fron their parents. Whay they like, what they don’t. If someone thinks this is above them and is meant for kids, then they most likely think they are too cool cool for school, which in turn proves them more likely to act like a spoiled rotten kid. This chart is for the adults. When you get over yourself and act like kids once in awhile, you realize how much fun you can have void of personal insecurity. Love it, fight the power! ( :)->-<
