"We should ford the river, I think. C’mon - it’s only 5 ft. deep, right? The wagon should be fiiiine going across tha - shit. Well,  Dylan died. Why did we bring someone who was 4’11" on this perilous journey?"In the edutainment blockbuster The Oregon Trail, there were a few temptations for kids to be unnecessarily cruel. Obviously, there’s the temptation to ford the river just to see who drowns, but there’s one thing that was a bit worse than that…The most fun part of the game is, not surprisingly, the only really interactive section: hunting.

And kids knew that, yet would still wantonly lay waste to the buffalo population between Missouri and Oregon. You didn’t see it, but standing behind you were about 50 Native Americans, all with a single tear running down their cheeks.
