When you’re 12 and you and your friends suddenly build a makeshift adrenaline activity in your backyard, it’s life-changing. You’re left wondering how your little brains thought of something so intricate and clever. A group of twelve-year-olds decided to make a homemade zipline in their backyard. They tied one end of a rope to a tree at the top of a hill, and since they didn’t have anywhere to tie it at the bottom, decided to hold the rope taut while they took turns going down.
The first person crashed. But that didn’t stop them from trying again and again, with a crash every single time. Oftentimes, when you’re a kid, safety is the last thing on your mind (via The Brainy Penny).
