What did you do as a child that would be considered dangerous today?

Inspired by a thing doing the rounds on facebook..

having a pen knife well below the age of 10
building go carts no breaks going down busy roads
in the snow/ ice getting towed off moving cars by holding under the rear bumper
going fishing with little or no regard for where we were, building fires etc only going home when it was dark
going to football matches on coaches full of drunkards as far afield as southampton just me and my mate aged about 12/13
camping out in a mates garden, roaming the streets at 4am pilfering milk

not condoning anything its just how it was

Hanging onto the back of a milk float on roller skates without getting caught. Riding bare back on ponies in headcollars and no helmets

Mmm. I was a bit out of control.
  • Riding my bike down the slide in the park that was about 60ft long and launching off the end.
  • Rummaging in the dustbins every Weds for the pop bottles to take back.
  • Climbing the local derelict quarry wall - and falling off.
  • Driving a 32 ton Caterpillar D8 excavator on the Buildings at age 15.
  • Sticking 1d coins in a line on the railway track to see how big they would go
  • Walking across the 12" water pipe that spanned the River Rhymney.

Playing on bombed out buildings from the war in East London, which was near the docks, so heavily targeted! Worst one was an old pub with bare beams over the cellar far below! We walked across those beams so many times!

At the age of about 11 I stayed with a mate overnight. We climbed out of her bedroom window in the middle of the night, jumped down off the porch roof, and went scrumping for apples in a local farmer's field. Then we wandered around the streets eating apples at 3 in the morning!

The only problem was, we couldn't get back into the house, so we nicked a plank from a nearby building site, propped it up against the porch, crawled up it and from there back into the bedroom window. It never occurred to us to kick the plank away afterwards, and that's how we got caught out the next day ..

Sounds like a made up story but I promise you it's true!

Oh, and playing with clackers - wouldn't be allowed these days, in case any little treasure smacked her wrist with one!

I'd forgotten about riding bikes down the slide and shooting off the end - great fun! And sticking pennies in the railway line, yep, did that too.
