of course I did also

the best things I got from the back of a cereal box or the back of a magazine were 1) a spearshooting, fin kicking frogman for the bathtub...soon confiscated as I shot a sibiling in the base with the pretty pointy spear and b) a set of formulas for fuses, smoke bombs and the like which kept my buddies and I chemistry obsessed over a summer (and back then you could get sulphur and potassium nitrate from the drugstore)
Life is too short not to ride the best bike you have, as much as you can
