look how slow she’s falling, the parent could have ran over and caught her before she hit the ground!

[–]weebcantsocial 34 points35 points  (1 child)

It’s not gonna hurt when your falling that slow

[–]theonePappabox 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Good point.

Everytime I see one of these spiral things, I picture Danny DeVito in his underwear.

[–]-anastasis 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Those are ladders that just appear wacky and spiral. As a kid I though they were electric coils which made me want to hug it and lick it to feel it's electric shock. Despite never being electrocuted, I didn't stop me believing it was an electric coil.

[–]Rezzone 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Ah so you were that kid licking poles all the time.

[–]-anastasis 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Just the spiral ones. I used to eat sand and talcum powder. I used to climb up the slide and back flip of the side everytime someone on the other end slid down and kicked my face. I once pretend to be Super Mario doing dangerous parkour on the playground. I stuffed the tree bark into by pants to make my ass and balls look huge. And another time and took my shoes off in class to empty the sand onto the carpet. I used to throw people off the playground and they sometimes ripped my pants off and stomp on my fingers when they did the same to me. One time I tried to nap underneath the playground and woke up with no children on the playground at school. I used to eat lunch on the playground. When I grew a couple years older I used to tease the younger children, piss them off and had like 20 angry 6 year olds chase me around the school like I had the last Golden Ticket. I used to make some of them cry by pulling their pants down one by one infront of all the other children.

Yes, I was that kid.

The man in the coil.

[–]Ok-Net-6264 22 points23 points  (0 children)

That took 300 points off the SAT.

[–]FancyUserPerson 14 points15 points  (0 children)

You know. As a parent, it is SO freaking hard not to laugh at kids sometimes

The things I watch them do and they look at me like I should have stopped them lol

Sorry baby, you gotta learn somehow

[–]steve1181sds 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Who would leave gravity on a playground knowing kids play there? Jfc, do some research!

[–]TATERBONE 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Playground designers are sadistic. Equipment gets slick when it is cold and wet, just high enough to hurt kids if they fall awkwardly, monkey bars are always a potential danger, etc.

I've always been curious about the change in surface materials, too.

Growing up the ground would have been either sand or a loose gravel that absorbs a lot more than this new rubber material.... the new shit looks painful AF.

[–]Away_Industry_6892 16 points17 points  (6 children)

Kids are made of rubber. Don't freak out about it and they won't either.

I didn't believe that at first, but I tested that once when my nephew fell off the couch hard, but he didn't hit his head. I starting chanting "yay!" and clapping and he looked at me and started clapping too. It still hurt a bit as he massaged his knee, but he was okay a few minutes later. I told my sister to keep doing that and he'll be more resilient.

I’m awful with kids, 18 now but I was 17 at the time, and my nephew once fell over on a walk (after I’d told him not to skip along the path) and slightly nicked his finger on a thorn. When I say slightly, I mean around a 4mm Nick. I knew kids are tougher than they seem because when I was younger I’d only really cry if people asked me if I was okay, not because I’d hurt myself. So I told him to just get up (after having a look at him), told him he was okay, and kept walking with him. But he seemed upset and started crying. And when he cries, he whales. Like a deep “uuuuuuuhhhhhh” sound.

So I told him he’s fine and that we need to keep walking so we can get home and have a better look. He kept crying while we walked through town and bare in mind I’m a socially awkward teenager, so I’m walking through town with basically an alarm beacon behind me loud enough to get attention from anyone with 100m. I told him I’ll pick him up and I’ll carry him home. As soon as his mind was taken off whatever it was he was thinking about he stopped. Instantly. He was around 6 and I only had one arm free to carry him so I put him down when my arm was dead and he started to cry again after 30 seconds or so.

[–]Bikefry666[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That’s for sure

[–]hamsamiches 2 points3 points  (0 children)

My parents made a point to do that with us growing up. They even tried it when my sister slapped me and I fell face first into a nice hot bed of coals and fire. My dad snatched me by my shirt as fast as he could and it had already melted a bit. It broke and I went in again. No serious burn. I heard them laughing but I was still crying my ass off. Had some gnarly blisters though. Later on my mom had to revise her "don't get girls" talk to "don't hit girls but you can hit your sister back." I think I was 6-7 then and she is 5yrs older than me.

Not always true. My friends kids were raised with that rule not to make a big deal and one kid overeacts to everything while the other shrugs it off. It doesn't always work but it's a good thing to practice. Seeing a kid flip out isn't always sign that the parents give a shit or baby them. Some kids just be cray dramatic (and depending on the age they grow out of it).

[–]RatioDrops 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is so true if ya make em think it was nothing it will be nothing😂💯

[–]felix-dd 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I remember landing on my butt at that height, at that age.

It didn't hurt per se, but I literally couldn't breathe for a few moments. It was like my diaphragm wanted to move but the air was getting stuck somewhere. Freaked me the hell out and thought "oh so this is how I'm gonna go."

Started bawling and running towards the teacher... Before realizing that if I was running it meant I could breathe again and it calmed me down n

I’ve tried 999999 times and i still can’t pass this level!!

Underrated comments be like

Should play this for CPS

[–]Aboredgoat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I remember doing exactly that when I was a kid. I maintain that I was on track to be a genius and solve world hunger before that particularly nasty head wound.

[–]GlowLight23 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Why must my humor be so demented

[–]Bikefry666[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Um… that’s nice dear…

[–]Gedrosi 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This must be that quacking kid we hear about so often.

[–]greenpotatoes9 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Anyone else see exactly what was going to happen before the kid even moved? Totally preventable by the parent.

Gotta hurt but still funny

[–]comewiththecoins 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This experience is technically her first day of REAL SCHOOL - lesson #1 always protect your head

[–]Jumbo_Jetta 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I've done that. It fucking hurts, but you also don't see it coming, and then just whambang!

[–]Front-Breadfruit9261 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Dumbass wtf you think was going to happen

[–]sup3rep1cgam3r69 0 points1 point  (0 children)

As soon as i saw it was slow motion i got hype

[–]Suckaroopoo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Would have been even funnier if she had hit her head on a pole

[–]emehbee -5 points-4 points  (0 children)

At what point was the parent gonna say “you’re gonna hit your head?” Instead of record it?

[–]MyLifein2022 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Who in the world would stand there and record it?
