Remember the good old days as a kid when you entertained yourself with this type of stuff?

I think you get where I was coming from though.

 

 

 

I'd love to see more of this stuff in kids. 

 

When I was a kid on the farm, we used to go eeling, pick mushrooms (God how I'd kill to get some farm fresh mushrooms now), build ramps and put our bikes up them, all sorts of stuff.

Ah, a "Back in the day..." thread. 

 

When I was growing up (late 60s early 70s) my parents were in a fairly new subdivision. There were a lot of kids around within six or so years of each other in age. Across the road from us was another row of sections/houses but behind that was acres of bush that is now part intermediate school, part housing, part light industry. We used to spend all our time in the bush, climbing trees, making rope and tyre swings, building huts, damming the stream, dividing into sides and having play fights. Sometimes we'd walk through the bush to come out near the local primary school and play football on their field; kids we knew and often many we didn't turning up and joining in until it was mayhem. We never came home clean. But mostly, I never remember being bored.

Heh I wouldn't do that today, I just couldn't be sure what was safe to eat or not :) Not prepared to learn by trial and error :) 

 

I know fruits you can generally eat if birds have been eating them.

My general rule of thumb now is, if I don't know what it is for 100% certain, I don't eat it :)

Agree. Like a lot of technology it depends how it is used.
