    If you think there are some ridiculous safety regulations now, wait until we have nationalized health care!

    The motorcycle industry is still working on a ban of all ATV and motorcycle/minibikes because of lead issues. Evidently there is a high incidence of kids licking bike parts. Yet their are no bans of lead fishing weights that kids will put in their mouth to crimp the sinkers onto the line.

    Now you see there is another thing, grew up using our teeth to crimp down slip shot weights..... lead posining is over rated

    BTW- don't give them any ideas..........

    Cool, I hit my mom in the head with a golf club when I was 4. Nobody told me you don't take a full swing on a putt putt course.....now if she had a hemlet on she would still be able to see out of that eye......

    Ah yes, many hours of countless fun playing BB gun tag in the orange groves...wishing I had one of those 10 pump crossmans instead of the level action Red Ryder. Another fun/stupid game we played...take real darts and stand about 20 yards or so apart. Throw dart at the other kid (had to have an arc of at least above his head). You could do whatever you needed to do to dodge the dart except lift either of your feet. First person to make the other kid pick up a foot wins. Good times. Good times.

    Well what about lawn darts.... of course we loved mumbly peg (sic?) where you throw a knife near the other persons feet , trying to make them spread out so far they fall......

    Alright...I gues we are officially derailed so how about this...

    We use to tie a piece of plywood via a 50 foot rope to the back of a motorcycle and after a good rain we would "sled" around the fields. Had to stop when we slung a kid in to a building and he broke something (on his body that is)...or maybe that was when he just ran into the building on his own...can't remember.
    In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth (Gen 1:1 NKJV)... 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. (John 1:1-4NKJV)

    No evolution, no monkey ancestors, no big bang!

    Oh yeah....that is/was fun, we always used a cardboard box, never thought about plywood. Probably would have gotten less "road rash" with the plywood

    Back in the day Mosquito control would fog the neighborhoods. You could hear them coming for miles. Our parents use to encourage us to get out bikes and go chase the fog trucks. Nothing like hammering a bike (no helmet)as hard as you can and sucking up all that mosquito spray. To this day mosquitoes don’t bite me……

    One of our favorites was CO2 rockets. Set a CO2 cartridge on a grooved board. Place foot on cartridge to hold it lightly. Use nail and hammer to "light" it and watch that sucker fly. This was followed closely by cherry bomb mortars. Stick a pipe in the ground. Drop in lit cherry bomb and jam tennis ball in the end -- boom!
