What are some crazy things you got away with as a kid?

It's funny how a lot of the things I did as a kid would land me in jail as an adult. Seems like the younger you get, the more excusable it is.

Here's one that comes to mind. I was about 4 or 5 years old, and we were having a neighborhood get together in the backyard. Our neighbor from across the street was this nice indian lady and she was trying to talk with me. I then picked up a rock from the ground and held it in my hand. I remember her and my parents telling me to "put the rock down please" and were generally uneasy sounding. I had a big grin on my face, and threw it as hard as I could at her face. She went to the hospital to get stitches on her forehead. Funny enough, I don't recall any repercussions for doing this. I don't remember being mad at her, I just wanted to see what would happen.


Another time, also when I was about 4 years old, we just came back from camping. While camping, my dad taught me to pee on a tree because that's just what you do when you go camping. My brain extrapolated this idea to the urban environment as well as #2. As soon as we got home, I got out of the truck and took a sh1t on the front lawn. Not sure what the neighbors would think if I did that now.

You made us a thread to tell us that you **** in your front lawn when you were a kid, and committed hate crimes.

I stole cookies once when I was in camp as a kid. I also threw up a middle finger and got my ass beat for it. The cookies, however.. We're all gone by the time the camp people arrived.

GTA and vehicular manslaughter. No one ever thought to look for an 8 year old.

Yet smoking cigarettes still remains my biggest regret in life. I am proud to say I quit though.

I can remember learning how to whistle a weird way that made it look like I wasn't doing anything and driving my kindergarten teacher up the wall during story time.



Was taking a neighborhood girl out for a spin in my kickass 5hp go-kart and was showing off by taking my hands off the wheel when she freaked out, grabbed the wheel, and jerked it to the side. She fell out at full speed onto the pavement, but it wasn't normal asphalt. We had one of those roads where they pour gravel and then throw some asphalt on top so it's good and rough, just a step above a gravel road. Needless to say any part of her skin that hit the ground was torn apart. She wasn't even supposed to be out of the house because she was competing in a beauty pageant the next day and she ended up going with bandages all over her body and in a wheelchair. I didn't get in trouble but I'm sure her mom wanted to kill me.



Same go-kart as before: My friend and I found the governor on the carburetor and routed a string with a handle under the body to the governor so we could pull it at top speed and get an extra boost. What we failed to realize at the time is that the return spring would detach itself because the carburetor wasn't meant to travel that much; we would quickly learn this the hard way after shutting the engine off and coming back later. I stood behind the go-kart and pulled the starter, not knowing that the throttle was wide open, and then some. The kart took off with me running behind it holding on to the handle of the starter rope for dear life. It quickly outpaced me and I fell on my face and watched as it bolted around my back yard. We had a small garage on the back of the house for the lawn mower that had a fairly short and steep concrete ramp leading to the yard and after a few trips around the yard the go-kart makes a b-line for the garage door. It nails the ramp at full speed, shoots straight up, and dents the garage door leaving a tire mark 6' up the door. By a stroke of luck it does a back flip off the door and lands on the ground with a silent engine. I'm assuming it died mid-flight from the lack of fuel during its attempt to reach orbit. I ran inside to assess the damage to the backside of the door and casually stroll through the house to be sure my dad wasn't waiting to beat my ass. Somehow, even though he was literally feet away from the whole thing, he didn't hear anything and was none the wiser. I hammered the dent out as much as I could and nothing ever came of it. He did ask about the tire mark a few weeks later but I played coy and got away without a scratch.

Did this a few years back at a movie theater with their tiny water cup, had a taste for a little Powerade first. Not five seconds after filling it, Mr. Bad Ass HS manager comes over and tells me "You didn't pay for that". I asked him if he'd like a quarter or something. Gave me a stern look and warning in a harsh tone.

I've been living my life on the path of the righteous ever since. Owe him a handshake.

I had great adventures with my go-cart / goped/ moped as well when I was a kid.

Running from police in my old neighborhood in NY to flipping it 2.5 times in my yard on the driveway in NC. no roll cage, rolled on my full face helmet and walked away with a jacked up shoulder and stiff neck, few scrapes. Rolled it back over and started it back up, kept it movin' WOT.

I'm pretty sure go-karts + kids is never a good combination.

My neighbors used to have 2 go-karts that they would let everyone play with. Some kid lost control and drove right through their front door.

It's a miracle I'm as healthy as I am. I flipped the go-kart a lot, jumped my 50cc bike off ramps taller than me only to bottom out the suspension and ruin my wrists for a few days, and flipped my 4-wheeler more times than I can count, a few times at full speed. My friend bent my handle bars after taking too big of a jump and coming down on the bar with his thigh He also blew the battery out the bottom of his 400ex after flat-landing a massive table top we built with his tractor.

Too many things to remember.

Things I did get busted for.....


Hiding my report card from my parents in middle school when I got my first C. I kept lying, saying it hadn't come yet. We went to church with the middle school principal and my parents even asked him about it in front of me....kept lying my butt off. Finally they were about to call the superintendent when the report card magically showed up after school one day on the kitchen table and I just acted like it came in the mail.

Throwing water balloons at cars while standing right next to my house (though out of sight at least). We nailed an old lady's car and she smoked the brakes and parked in my driveway. We booked it to another one of my friends houses and came up around the corner a few houses down. Police car comes rolling by while the lady is still in my driveway. Yep, she called the cops. So of course my buddies and I are all freaking out since we're probably 13 yrs old at the time. The cop figured out that we jumped the fence in my backyard and was headed our way when we just gave up and fessed up. He sat us down in my front yard and told us the lady thought she was being shot at (lol) and freaked out since someone the previous week had just thrown rocks at her windows and shattered them. Dang did I hit the wrong car! As all this was happening, my sister's school bus rolls up to let off the elementary school kids after school. The bus stop was, of course, right at my driveway, so all these little kids are looking at us with their noses up against the glass, watching the "big kids" getting in trouble by the cops. There was no hiding it from my parents at this point. He called my parents at work, from our home phone and explained the whole thing. Got in some trouble for this one. That day I learned a big lesson. I learned that I shouldn't have done it next to my own house....rookie mistake.
