That’s so small, it won’t hurt your head!
We used to put conkers on the end of a piece of string and then whack an opponents conker. The conker that didn’t fall apart when struck, was the winner. I doubt children are allowed to do it these days because of Health and Safety rules….
Health and safety? That’s ridiculous, isn’t it?
It’s all getting out of hand over here. We’re all wrapped in cotton wool these days!
This seems like someone is pushing to be politically correct or something stupid, I don’t know Richard. I want the old world back, the one that we grew up in!
When I think of the kind of things we used to get up to as children! Modern day parents would flip out!
I have no doubt, Richard. The kids in my neighborhood were pretty good but we did blow up mailboxes with firecrackers and toilet paper people’s trees and houses!
I lived in a farming community and we used to have a lot of fun with sugar and weedkiller. We’d be branded terrorists today!!!
