Born to Run

Episode Synopsis

Originally Aired October 14, 1986

    For as long as cereal manufacturers have been making kid's breakfast cereals, there have been prizes inside.  It is one of the most annoying laws of physics that the weight of the prize is always greater than the weight of the cereal it's nestled in &, therefore, ends up somewhere around the bottom of the box.  As great as the cereal may taste, no kid - young or old (oh, go on admit it, you fit in this category) - has the patience to eat the entire box before getting to the prize.  The only other alternative was to dump out the whole box, which could be wasteful.  So, Simon McKay set out to solve the problem.
