Games of the past, seem now very dangerous
A person, especially a poor man, can adapt to virtually anything. The dangers which we avoid in adulthood, childhood seemed an exciting adventure: many of us have spent their teenage years in such circumstances, it becomes quite clear - as we all survived.
After all, children's games are never confined harmless "knife" or Salk. Always had to climb higher, jumping away, to blow up something more - to see all surround your valiant prowess. Yielding to a sudden surging nostalgia, we have compiled a list of the ten most dangerous of our games - and, perhaps, of your childhood.
Race for construction projects
In general, it certainly was not necessarily race. Quite a checkered and-seek in the construction and voynushka was also excellent. The main thing was to choose the best possible destruction (or unfinished house), so that you can jump over gaps, climb the crumbling stairwells and, ideally, to jump right off the roof into a pile of packed, wet sand. Such a course would take modern special forces - was not enough just burning obstacles.
Jumping off a bridge
The height of several meters caused no fear, but only contempt. Which Indian afraid to jump into the water from the railway bridge? That's right, only the most intelligent. Unfortunately, those in the tribe were in the minority. The task is often complicated: jumping to the newspaper, doing flips and even tried to get into the ship's lifeline.
In fact, the exact name of this strange game there was none. Usually, it is simply called the "let-me-you-put to sleep." Overlapping of oxygen to the brain caused hallucinations and short-term "simply had fun." One of the really dangerous and foolish games of its time.
to cling to the transport
Fun rolling down a frozen hill on his own ass was just going to cling to the transport. Bus, tram, passenger car - fit all that has a bumper. With this entertainment related injuries most of the winter: transport turned, handed back and just threw off pesky kids in a ditch.
This game kids apparently expressed their interest around the world. What could be more fun than to shove a piece of carbide in a water-filled glass bottle, cork it and wait with delight - what will happen next. On the second time, however, the mind to move at least at some distance from the projectile has missed everything.
Types of crossbows was a great set. From the simplest, where gum and clothespin turns an ordinary piece of wood in a crossbow, to complex designs of bicycle pump, medical harness and latches on doors. Samopaly even know how to fire: sulfur from the matches, wad, homemade bullet of lead - all this could at least knock out an eye.
Grenades of nuts
Children's creative pinnacle of weapons. Bolt on both sides Screw nuts for them clogged with sulfur matches. The entire structure is gifted comrades rushed straight into the fire. Less talented children were content with the cast on the nearest wall. Nut in this case only one flew away, but the chance to get it right in the forehead was not enough.
Slate in fire
And another thing, it's silly hobby from childhood. Pieces of slate, many threw right into the fire and confidently waited for it there will reach the desired condition.
in the tree house
Probably one of the safest activities in our list. Unless, of course, does not take into account that these houses were built of clay and literally sticks as high as you can climb without measure brave child. Fall out of the house with a floor piece was considered unfortunate, but it is quite commonplace.
traveling on the ice
Before to climb on an ice floe and its own split off from the total weight, was smart enough to only the most gifted representatives of the yard elite. Very bad outcome was, of course, very little, but frostbite and call rescue services enough.
