    Your back? Holy sh1t ! Run away ! and the only way that would work is if you put something underneath them to support them... its not gonna work so good, boxes aren't great for ramps and such.

    Oh, now I know what you mean. Although that's not gonna be that soft to land in... its better than cement or grass, but you'll get cut up pretty bad like that.

    Stuntmen use boxes to fall into, it could work but the boxes would be trashed in a few jumps and then itd all be a mess of boxes that youd leave somewhere in the woods, littering the world.

    i ordered like 100 boxes, so it'll probably last a little while, and i already have a plan for disposal, just put the boxes in a fire pit, and burn them

    It's cardboard idiot. Recycling centers don't want it you hippy; read the bens. Burning paper products does not harm the atmosphere. Maybe the chemicals from the tape. 0oOh!

    I wouldn't suggest the cardboard pit idea though.

    That's funny, because the recycling centers where I live have no problem accepting cardboard.

    Well yeah paper's paper, you have to understand big recycling center don't bother with the hastle. There'd be more work & less output. Our pic city pic up doesn't want it nor do the bens all around the shopping centers and school. I'm sure it's because people usually don't break them down before tossing them in.

    this is quite the hillbilly thing to try, and probably THE WORST thing i have read on this forum yet. all i have to say is show us pics of this pit of death as soon as its built and by all means ACTUALLY try it.

    seeing how i live in a town of 1200 people, and the closest recycling center is far away i dont think recycling is in the question, or the garbage guy would like 100 destroyed boxes.
