I caught this on TED Talks (a feed to which to subscribe if there ever was one). It’s 10 minutes, but it’s completely worth watching. (After you read the post)
The 5 things?
- Play with fire
- Play with knives/Own a pocket knife
- Throw a spear
- Deconstruct Appliances
- Break the DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act)
- Drive a Car
“But, you know, they’re young, they heal fast”
I would (and intend to) add
- Ride a bike in traffic
- Sail a boat/paddle a canoe
- Kill, clean, and eat an animal (or a fish)
What would you add?
