When I was young, all the boys my age wanted to be stunt men.

we made ramps to jump our bikes. One of my friends had almost no coordination, so he ended up crashing into the pavement.

We used to launch bottle rockets at each other.

I have a scar on my head from when my neighbor threw a rock at me, lol.

those were the days.

Kind of sounds like the mid 60’s. It’s a wonder so many survived. I got hit in the eyebrow with a large rope hook. Was playing in a neighbors clothesline tent and stuck my head out. She was on a platform in a tree and thought she’d scare my and hit me instead. It knocked me the ground and blood streamed down my face and clothes. Missed my eyeball by an inch

I have a niece who swears there were six of us boys and only three survived our childhood.
Yes, it was called being young.

@SW-User humans are barely domesticated. I think we'd have no problem reverting to a feral state.

That's how we played growing up too. " I bet you can't jump off of that was a pretty big game."

@Lostpoet yeah, I remember jumping off the roofs of our houses

@DavidSBianchet I've jumped off many houses and Sheds. The scariest thing was jumping off a structure at the park. I don't even know what they built it for but ut was taller than most houses.

@TheEmperor yes, every single American kid. It's a proven fact. We grew up watching Evil Knievel, The Dukes of Hazzard and the like. There was even a tv show about a retired stunt man who became a bounty hunter. It was called The Fall Guy.

Yep. A bunch of wannabe Evil Kenevils. (i am sure I misspelled his name)
