A Blast From the Past - Spirograph!!!

I was cleaning out my basement and came across my old spirograph. I used to love that thing!!!  I would sit at the kitchen table and draw for hours.

I did a little research and found out that The Spirograph has been around since 1965.  I got mine in the early 80's and spent a couple of years using it, probably going through about 10 - 15 notebooks of paper.

For those of you who are too young to know what this addictive toy is,  it’s a box set containing wheels, rings and pens that you use to draw psychodelic looking designs that somebody trippin' on acid would spend hours staring at. Wikipedia says that a Polish mathematician invented the spirograph in the late 1800s. A British company bought the rights to it and mass produced it as a kids’ toy in the 1960s. It was relaunched in 2013 so you young un's might get a chance to re-discover it.
