Name something you did as a kid that could be considered dangerous today

Recommended Posts

Jumped the burn at what seemed back then as wide or high launch pads.

Tied rope to a tree straddling the burn then tied a thick branch to the other end of the rope as a seat and swung out over the same burn at a high height.

Drank water out of the burn when thirsty...............................You'll have guessed me and my pals played by the burn quite a lot.....:flashing-lol:

Played cricket with an actual cricket ball but without wearing pads or gloves.....and there was no such thing as hard hats or face cages in them days.

Shower of fucking pussies nowadays!

Played beside Ards Airport, where there was a Glider club in the 70s, the towing plane dropped the chain were we were playing after it had got the glider up

Bonfire Building

Built Huts

Black Rubber Band guns

Climb onto the school roof and sat up there like Oor Wullie....... for no real reason.......

Crawled around the foundations of a nursery being built near our house

Built huts and dens up in the woods

Climbed up a suspended ladder hanging from the Erskine bridge must have been over 100ft high, still shit myself thinking about it

Climbing up to the highest branches of trees to get conkers

Had a paper run doing all the pubs in Paisley when i was 13 years old, used to sell the Pink Times and Green Citizen

Could go on and on, but it was all fun back then :banana:

Yes and said we had two little toys, but his was big and hairy. :freaked-out-smiley-emoticon:

FFS Guv, seek help.

There are many associations today that can help you get over such a traumatic experience :flashing-lol:

Was it really big and hairy ? and did it hurt ?:facepalm-hand-gesture-smiley-emoticon:
