Fully story, including picture

. Over the last five years, at great expensive and after much effort, he built a 737 cockpit so life-like, it's been used as a training simulator.

That's a normal dad - building stuff for himself using the kids or wife as the excuse.

He had only himself in mind when he built this. I can hear him now. "But honey, the kids will love it." Still very cool though.

Kids can't even get in the room because of Dad's big toy in their.



Massive overkill.

He goes through all of this work and expense but he doesn't have his pictures straight on the wall when he takes pictures?

Kid messed them up while jumping up and down on the seat because that's all he knows how to do with it.

So, the kid's punishment was that he couldn't play with the airplane thingy for the next month while Dad fiddled with it and made adjustments.



I wonder how much sleep the kids didn't get or how many all nighters Dad pulled to put this together?

Spends thousands of dollars and 5 years to build simulator.

Kids play on it for 5 minutes and are to old now to play on such things....gets bullied at school because of how lame they are.............priceless.
