Scary Manufacturing


It was different for me.  My memory of seeing a paper machine/paper mill for the first time was very positive.  And continues to be every time I visit a paper mill, a very impressive sight, though I now haven't been to one in years.

When I used to go to grade schools to teach kids how paper was made, I used the Richard Scary book "What Do People Do All Day?" to introduce them to the process and then showed a few pictures so they could see what the actual machines looked like.  Scary did a good job describing the flow of wood from the forest, through lumber making and residuals to the pulp mill and on to paper.  The response of the kids in the class was "Wow", "Awesome" but no one ran from the classroom or got under their desk in fear.  Few(probably, none) mills give public tours anymore for all the legal reasons why it is unsafe......which is right to the point you are making.  No one was ever hurt on a tour to my knowledge.
