I did a faceplant jumping, we played this game where you had to kick off your shoe and jump farther than it. Well it took me days to get the sand out of my mouth.

I`d end up in a permanent helmet if I tried one of those.

The top of the slide scared me...

Cool stuff.

They spelled "Believe" wrong. Morons. I`ve never seen anyone to any flips and whatnot off a swing before, so that was pretty neat.

I would just swing really high, grab one of the chains and let my ass slide off the seat and tarzan swing.... that and see how far I could jump away after swinging high.

Tomorrow we hear about gobucks dead body found mangled around aswing set, skull cracked open and both legs broken...

The only thing I could do as a kid was climb those high poll thingies to the very top and then swing to to the bottom really fastxD!!!

I later chipped my front tooth when I smashed into the poll face first...

I wasn`t cool enough to do any of those stunts. The only thing I ever did was swing really high, or that one time when I caught a tennis ball with my ankles while swinging (I was an odd kid).

Now I want to sneak over to my neighbors and use their swingset.

I was watching this video while listening to "Aftershock" by Van Halen, would`ve been a much better song choice, but oh well.

yay...the avenge seven fold song in the backaround. i heart a7x.

and, the tricks were pretty cool.
in elementary school, i had a friend that would climb on top of the monkey bars, then he would somehow get on top of the roof on the playground, jump on to the swingset, and jump off the top of the 20 feet swingset, and manage to do a backflip on his way down. he would also do backflips off the bench...and the ground.
but the best thing he did was swing, and manage to flip 3 times before his feet touched the ground.

and all i could ever do was jump off the swing, and flip off of it.

I can only front flip off a swing. x] People at the park by my house do crazy swing tricks. I liked the straightjacket flip one, or whatever that was called. That was cool.

Aw man, I used to do that backflip thing all the time when I was about 12. I so doubt I can do it anymore.

COOL!..they`re like swing set ninjas!

On another note...I was always too afraid of getting my hand pinched in the chain to ever really enjoy a swing set...haha..I know, I know...please don`t beat me up

Just watch, swings will soon be taken away because one stupid and foolish kid, who injured himself by attempting one of these will get his mom to take every swingset away.

`The Oblongs` said it best:

"Well she`s white, and she`s holding a bible, we better do as she says."
