Whilst talking to my mother last night about the recent rioting and looting in the country she felt the need to remind me that I was no angel during my teenage years and referred to my school expulsion at 15 (though I was re-instated a week later!)

This got me thinking back to my younger years and I have been racking my brain trying to think back to all of the stupid and in some cases funny stuff my friends and I used to get up to some of which were:

Ghost Riding a mates bike. Remember Ghost Riding? You'd ask to borrow your mates bike, ride it as fast as you can and then jump off it and watch it free wheel until it either ground to a halt or hit a tree and buckled a wheel! Ghost riding when done right in a safe environment is always funny!

Grand National day jumping
. This involved a group of us all going down the local allotment and doing two laps jumping every patch in sight! This obviously had to be done at night. NOTE: Eat rhubarb with caution.

Knock-a-door-ginger. Come on we've all done this at least once. All about timing and the thrill, oh the thrill! I'd take a knock-a-doorer over a Jehovah's witness or a local MP any day of the week!

Umbrella poke faking. On a raining day one of us would walk in line with an umbrella carrying lady and on passing would abruptly fall to the fall screaming 'my eye! my eye!' resulting in a shed load of turned heads and one guilty looking woman! A proven winner.

Anyway that's a few of my young daft shenanigans! There are plenty more. What berks we were.

Over to you! Cheers Guys.

My brother and me used to stage fake go-kart accidents.
We'd position ourselves on the pavement, in a heap, amidst our wooden go-kart that our dad had made us, and we'd cover ourselves liberally with tomato ketchup and wait for sympathy from passers by.......we rarely got any lol.

Other than that I spent most my childhood riding ponies Very Happy

Good ol' postmans Knock - with the added twist of balancing an egg in the door knocker....Angry man opens door, egg falls on carpet....Angry man has raw Omellete!

Hedge-Hopping - Pretty much what it says on the tin...see if you can run the length of the street across every front garden in your way, over hedges, walls, water features etc!

Mystery Machine - In the next street to mine, there is a guy who in his mid-20's owns a 3wheeler (!) Most nights as the sun was going down, we would hide behind said 3 wheeler, and start pusing it down the street as the handbrake was so bad! The look of confusion on the mans face trying to figure out why his car is moving off its own accord was brilliant.

The Mr Walls phone call. We'd ring a random landline and when they'd answer I'd ask if there is a Mr wall there and when they replied no I'd ask if there is a Mrs Wall there and when they again replied no I'd ask if there is any walls there and when they said no then I'd ask 'how the hell is your house still standing then without any walls'!!

personal one on my parents, would put 141 and then call my home number, would he the chair scraping of my dad getting up and would hang up, minute later would call back, repeat 2 or 3 times.

The last time I played Postman's Knock - or Knock Ginger Run as we called it, I was about 10 years old. As we were running away from one house, my friend pushed me over and I smacked my mouth on a concrete step. Knocked my front teeth out. Never did that again of course...

Other than that in my teens I never broke the law or anything, but I did mitch off school a hell of a lot. Mainly because I was bullied and I hated it. Still got a degree education though.

Went through a self destuctive phase in my late teens, but I'm good now obviously Smile

jings I must have been an utter Poopie. All the stuff thats being posted I do now and think I'm being grown up.

Seriously though I had ADHD so I was a wee horror.

I'd love to know what FreekShow did to get lobbed out of school though. I racked up 4 exclusions and 1 expulsion early on and still managed to stay on to finish my final year booyah. Just shows that even the little Poopie have brains

My younger sister, who has always been a bit of a tomboy, took my football into school one day and had it pinched by two lads in my year. When she tried to get the ball back one of them lads pushed her over and kicked her...big mistake!

I found out about this between lessons that day and left a class 'to go the toilet' which is when I made my way to the classroom he was in and proceeded to slap him around the room until I was stopped. At the time my attendance record was awful (I skived alot!) and this was the straw that broke the camels back which saw me ultimately expelled.

However my Mother managed to get me re-instated through the authorities in Oxford which enabled me to take my GCSE's though I was to be escorted on and off the premises like I was the Yorkshire Ripper or somebody! My head of year also told me I'd end up in the gutter which hasn't quite happened yet but there is plenty of time yet!

Ghost Riding a mates bike

My mate Tam Ross done this on my other mate Boogie's raleigh mustang, the bike ran for about 100 yards like a posessed ghost bike and veered straight into a midlothian district council van, the bloke "went radge" and chased us all. Actually hurt my insides laughing at this and spewed up a crispy pacake that I had two hours previous

Other Bike Story.

I went on the front of my younger brothers bike whilst he peddled and he desided to go down a steep brae (hill)
I was screaming STOP! STOP! but he said the brakes had failed and he sacrificed his own discomfort to drive me face first into a holly bush from about half a mile of gathering speed. Five minutes after I found the brakes were actually in tip top condition

Fields

The fields behind my Grans estate were the source of much fun.
The classic hay jump: Setting up as much hay as you can and jumping out of a tree

Found a bag of pornos in the field when I was about 10 with my pal Sean Traynor, who remarked that he would like to stick his sausage into the pretty ladies streaky bacon (he loved woman and meat)

Did anyone else go Bommy raiding on Bonfire nights ?

Were i lived every field had a bonfire on bonfire night and we all used to raid the others to make ours the best . You didn't want to be one of the lads who had to protect your bommy though , large groups of kids with bits of wood could get messy .

We always used to pulled down the school rugby posts to make our center pole . Laugh good days

As well as others listed like Knock door run or "Jimmy Leg It", where you knock ask if Jimmy is in and run away, as we called it me and my mates used to play 45 and in.

If you don't know what it is here are the basics.
- The person who is "it" stands with their eyes covered against a lamp post and counts to 45 whilst everyone else hides.
- Everyone has to get to the lamp post, grab it and shout "(Insert name) In!" before the person who is "it" spots them and grabs the post shouting "(Insert name) Out!"

We also enjoyed throwing vegetables at passing busses and lorries. On a Thursday our local parade of shops had a veg market on and on Thursday nights there'd be discarded veg just littered about so we would hide under the underpass bridge and launch our veg towards the road. We also did this on Halloween with chunks of Pumpkins we'd nick off peoples doorsteps.

We also played a game called Manhunt

The person who was it had 3 minutes to hide anywhere they want within a set boundary. One of the favourite spots was on top of an abandoned supermarket next to the parade of shops, which you could get to by going up the stairs to the flats above the shops and jumping the 4 foot gap between the stairs rail and supermarket roof.

We used to play that too... for hours on end, spread across half a suburb. I was only thinking about it a few months back. I used to live for it. I remember getting really depressed at the end of the summer holidays knowing that we'd be having our last game. That was about 30 years ago though.

Around the same time I had a bunch of mates who lived 'on' the northern beaches of Sydney. I was so envious of their wayward lifestyle. Their parents had no idea what they were getting up to. So you can imagine how great it was to catch the bus down to their place on Friday afternoon after school to stay for the weekend. Their Mum was lovely, but their old man was a strict disciplinarian. A sea captain.
I witnessed many brutal beltings for menial things... I used to pi55 myself laughing - just couldn't help it. It was so unfair but so funny as well.

I don't know if you had Bini Domes (about 25m dia. lightweight concrete dome structures used as a school hall, gym or library). They were banned a while back because many of them collapsed due to being under-designed. Basically, when water saturated the skin - they tended to collapse. Well, we didn't know this at the time. There was one within walking distance from my above mates place so we'd sneak out at night with cans of beer and fags and take a running approach to get up the pyramid part of the Bini. Then pass the gear up. To get to the curved summit was difficult... especially when there was dew... but once you got a grip the curve flattened out. Great views from up there! We did this about half a dozen times before one night the blue sirens arrived. Got let off though after giving a false name. That particular one did collapse about 5 years afterwards!

Just remembered - not far from there - our Headmaster had a holiday home. We recognised his family station wagon parked out the front. So again, in the dead of night, we went across the road to some mud flats and plastered his car with the silty stuff. Did quite a thorough job making sure it went down the vent grilles in front of the windscreen. Got pinged first thing Monday morning though - it wasn't hard to put two & two together!
