When I Was A Stupid Kid, my understanding of physics was governed by the world of cartoon violence. Yes, you could fall a thousand feet, and not get killed.
Yet, I was no dummy, and if I were to fall, I would like it to be on a layer of soft, fluffy toilet paper, just in case. This judicious planning would offer me the thrill of falling safely, because I would then land gracefully with a delicate bounce on my tush at the end, toilet paper breaking my fall with a tender, white, hygienic caress.
Did you feel indestructible as a kid? How did you learn otherwise? Share your story! :)
