Back in 1982 we played a game called war with BB guns. My bro was on the opposite team. Hiding behind a tree just enough to pepper me repeatedly. I got pissed and took aim for that spot. The next thing you know his two front teeth were missing. (OUCH)

He went to the hospital and the state police were called. Needless to say I got myself into hot water over that stunt and was taught a good lesson from Dad later that night. (OUCH)

So my question to you is what was the worst thing you did as a child?

Here's mine. I got mad at my younger brother when I was five and he was four and slammed the door at him. Well, on his big toe. Ripped the toe nail right off. Dad took care of me too. I couldn't sit down for a week.

My friends and I used to have BB gun wars. Stupid yea. Fun Yea! Oh yea stupid too. We used to have a helmet goggle requirement for savety measures LOL. Mind you this was b4 paint ball guns. One kid Andrew ended up in the Hospital twice when hit in the head, see how important helmets are. The bb entered under the skin and rolled up along the skull about an inch or too. We told him we could surgically remove it rite there in the field with a knife but he had to go home and tell mom

Cow pat frisbee.

Country Australia, large fields, dried cow pats. Pick up the dried pat and throw like a frisbee. Make sure you're not hit - especially by a not-so-dry pat.

One plus about cow pat tossing is when it gets stuck in a tree noone goes home in tears.

Definitely safer the BB wars... But lets not talk about the time I was shot with chicken pellets from an airgun by my brother or struck with a horsewhip!!

Your making me blush, John.

I was a pretty bad teenager. The list of "bad" things I have done in my life is long. (like using to many emoticons on bikeforums.net)

Ok, I don't know if this is the worst, but is one that can be shared publicly. Sorry that its a bit on the dark side, but that has been the story of my life.

Quote:
As many of you know I have been "fat" my whole life. In fact, I am smaller (lighter) now than I was in the 9th grade.

The incedent happend in my Junior year in highschool. You see, there are not many things for kids to do with their spare time here in the summer. So, we would hang out on "Central Avenue" in downtown Great Falls. I would bring my beatup 1957 Chevy Appache pickup (old farm truck with steel i-beams for bumpers)down and me and some buddies would sit in the back checking out the "cruizers." These "cruizers" were typically kids that had mom's car and mom's gas. I couldn't afford to gas up the old Chevy for cruizing the drag.

So, we all had arch rivals or nemisis' in school. Right? You know, the jerk that would make your life a living hell. One such guy for me was Jason. On the night in question, Jason kept cruizing by in mommy's Lincoln shouting the "FAT BOY" comments. After a while his buddies joined in too.

Well, had few brews and some wicked weed in me. I was primed, cocked and loaded.

The next time Jason came by, I had enough. I pulled out right behind him. Followed for a few blocks. Then at a "T" intersection with railroad tracks right in front of him with a stop sign, I FLOORED IT! I hit his mommy's car doing 30MPH! I didn't stop until they were high centered on the tracks. Then I backed up and hit them at an angle spining the car a bit sideways. A whole life's worth of frustrations, anger, and pent up aggression came pouring out as I rammed them with my truck. "Explain this to mommy you jerk!"

We got out and pulled them from the car. 3 of us, 5 of them. An a$$ whooping insued. Then we got back in the truck and then went back to Central.

I was really paranoid waiting for the cops to come and pick me up. They never did. You see, he and his buddies were all liquered up too.

The next week in school, good old Jason looked like crap. He kept his mouth shut.

By the end of the year, we were friends. Not great friends, but did hang out quite a bit. Oh, he never did get to take mommy's car cruzing again.
Well, I have changed a lot since I was a teenager. I still don't take any crap, but won't put myself into a situation like this one. There are worse. Much worse.

Again, sorry for the DARK story.

There was the time my friend Peter and I (he and I had the same name) made a gasoline bomb using a coke bottle. It didn't blow up, it just burned in the street. We ran.

If I caught some kid doing that today, I'd be mad as helll.

Anyone ever take grasshoppers, throw them on the ground to knock them out, spray them with WD40, then light them on fire? They hop off when they wake up buring until they die. We did this when I was in the 6th grade. Managed to start a grass fire as one took off. Man, we got in HUGE trouble over that one. Mom walked the circle with me, but good.
Perhaps that is a little more in line with this thread.

I had the same thing happen to me. I was shooting a very old 8 gauge shotgun. Talk about a cannon! My shoulder hurt for three weeks.

We put several layers on. We even went as far as to wear hockey, football pads and even motocross gear. An every one wore goggles that was a must.

Thats what I was using a Crossmans CO2 BB/.177 calibur. I was only shooting BBs at the time. Theres no way I would have used pellets on person.

if you think shooting your brother is bad? try shooting yourself in the foot... TWICE.
one day while i was bored, i had my bb gun out. i wondered if it would hurt if i shot myself in the foot. IT KILLED!
so i thought to myself, What if i put a sock on?
so i put a sock on, and shot myself again.
i do not advise this. i was a very stupid kid.

and i have a fighting story (quite like N7's)

Well i am not what you would call skinny. Im 6'0, 260 LBS, Nose Tackle for my highschool football team. I am in grade 10.
My story is of when I was in grade 9.
Up here in Southern ontario, we get a bit of snow, and at my elementry school, we would have plows come and plow all the snow into giant piles. about 7 feet up.
Me and my friends marked this area as "ours"
I have some pretty big friends as well. all of us are on the line for the football team.
anyways, when we were on them, no one would come up. ever.
One day, this guy in my grade, Jesse, decided he was gunna run up. i shouted "get the **** off my hill", and he goes "shut up ******" and walks away. I get together Chris, Marko,(both offensive gaurds) Tom, and Kyle.
we walk across the front entrance to where him and his friends are standing.
We get into a word fight, and his friends start calling me tubby and all that. I was gunna turn around and just walk away, but then he says "at least i have a father"
this sent me into a blind rage. (my parents got a divorce earlier that year)
I lunged at him and had him on the ground, swinging at his face. One of his friends pulled me off, and was about to hit me, when chris speared him off me.
Jesse got up, and came at me. I moved swiftly and tripped him. this only made him more mad. He ended up having me cornered at a wall. I somehow got out of that, and was smashing his face into the wall.
By this time, the school security officer Carl had come and pulled us apart.
i got 3 day suspension for fighting, but it was worth it. no one has made fun of me since.

I once shot a bird w/ a .22 when I was a kid. It was a perfect target up there far away what a challenge. I felt so bad about it later that day I could have cried. You know beating animals when your a kid is a red flag for psycologists to future problems. I hope you have some remorse for killing a cat, for gods sake man

Funny thing is my Mom and Dad would never let me own a BB gun you know, "you'll shoot your eye out kid". It's great to have such friends when your a kid w/ guns. I think it was a crossman 752 sawed off that was my weapon of choice BTW this same friends dad had a 4 guage shot gun. I never shot it but it was double barrel and looked like it belonged mounted on an assault vehicle

I'm just glad that I lived long enough to out grow that crazy kid. It sure seems like another life when I look back on those days. I'm glad my kids have not taken after me..
