Why did kids suck at putting together "the shrine of the silver monkey on LoTHT?"
If you were a child in the late 90s, then you'll recall a little show on Nickelodeon called "Legends of the Hidden Temple." With a large talking stone head and a slew of challenges that had kids competing in an Aztec-like environment, what wasn't to like? But why the hell could the contestants never successfully assemble this silver monkey? All it was was three-tiered shrine, which was comprised of a large base, a somewhat smaller midsection, and a little monkey head on a pole. I remember being pissed off in my adolescence that something that simple seemed so challenging.
I remember that show quite well and loved it back in the day. I always shouted at the television screen during these scenes because they were so tense! I think the kid contestants had difficulties for a variety of reasons, primarily poor hand-to-eye coordination and the stress of being under pressure. I know that most adults- including myself- struggle to perform when I know that a) people are watching me, and b) that people's perception of me is based on whether I succeed or fail at the task at hand. That's a lot for a kid to handle!
Well you only have minutes to get through the entire temple as well, but I remember yelling at the TV as well. It was so frustrating.
