Maybe they can build some bus stop shelters in Beaverton, Ohio.

....and the HOA promptly asked them to tear it down due to deed restrictions.

Whats with these treehouses that are like 6 ft off the ground? Tree houses should be like 20' up. :-)

(Obviously that's not appropriate for everyone, but something 6 ft up seems to defeat 90% of the point to me.)

How long before the city will order it torn down?

Beavercreek, not Beaverton. I was just thinking about an amount of something I had last night while typing the town name.

The problem of a 20' high tree house is that when you throw sticks up at your friend who is in it, he tries to grab them, and falls out of the tree house, onto his hand, and winds up with a vomit-inducing compound fracture of his wrist, and then you have to help him get back to his parents' house while he's holding his broken wrist bone inside the skin, and there's blood everywhere...

Never get that memory out of my head.

Real Farkers can't admit to having emotions (other than being horny*), or it would damage their Internet Tough Guy cred.

When my parent's house was built, there were hills behind us from all the foundations being dug. Then there was some kind of construction strike which meant that the next block wasn't built up for a couple of years. Of course all of us kids would use the hills as a playground, and being the young geniuses that we were, standing on top of one hill and throwing rocks at the kids on the next hill was a daily game.
Until a few weeks later when a largeish sharp rock stuck in my friend's skull. We could see grey matter through the buckets of blood. Amazingly enough he didn't get any stupider, but our parents wouldn't let us have any fun after that.

I had the same experience growing up. The lot next to ours was only partially developed (they dug the basement pit) before something caused the development to stop, for over two years.

All the neighborhood kids would play the same game, climbing onto the dirt piles and throwing dirt clods at each other. One girl got hit in the eye with a clod that contained a nice-sized rock. Just gave her a black eye, but for some reason that didn't deter us from being stupid.

Added bonus, the basement pit filled with rainwater and after a year we had a stinky swamp pit filled with 6-8" bull frogs. We all became experts at catching tadpoles.

/Eventually the neighbors got together and called the local news station to investigate and get the development restarted. So much for our awesome kid playland.

Probably not, but I learned when Extreme Makeover rolled through my town that no one keeps those house for very long and since they have to sell, they get bent over a barrel.

We had a development of McMansions go up about a decade ago behind our development of normal sized houses.

While they were still plywood frames, we used rope and pulleys on the site to pull a large spool of wire up through the 2nd story bay window.

We then constructed a plywood ramp and starting at the far end of the house, rolled the spool to a nice running start, up the ramp and out the window : )

There was also a freshly installed concrete sewer hatch that wasn't locked... we go so excited, packed our backpacks with rope, road flares, sparklers and flashlights and embarked on our subterranean expedition.

The network of buried concrete pipes about 4' in diameter only formed a network of like 30 ft of total length in a grid formation.

We thought we were gonna come up in another or development or something, but we just used that as an underground bunker instead (for drinking and smoking naturally).

We had two Penthouses in a plastic truck-style toolbox to shield them from the elements.

Chanel (in her fishing gear) was the hottest chick across botch issues and there was some brunette chick too (on a yacht, doing unwholesome things with a thick line of rope) that was pretty smoking.

I think Playboy stashing ended about 20 years ago.

I still remember the joy of stumbling across other kids' stashes.

I guess that doesn't happen anymore these days, which is sad, but probably more hygienic.

I was 26 then.

"Playboy" was our generic term for girly mags of course. We had one that had actual penetration porn, with only black people. Really made me sad to think I never grew up to those... expectations.

We used to play this game when we were much smaller and someone's parents would order a load of topsoil/fertilizer that might as well have been a mountain to us.

I can still hear the oh so satisfying *thwap* of a huge clod of manure nailing my friend right in the face : )

I didn't launch it, but I still remember the tears and shortness of breath laughing through all that.

Every kid needs to fall out of a tree at least once and break something. I don't know why, but it seems like one of those rites of passage, particularly for boys.

/this poor kid doesn't, though

A tree house in Wynnewood? So would you say the kid is back in the high life again?
 
2013-08-08 03:43:11 AM
Even if you don't fall out of your sagging, rotting treehouse, you have the bonus of it being full of spiders, wasps, mud-daubers, scorpions, gryphons, gorgons, rapists, mormons, shiat-kickers, tea partiers, bingo grandmas, carpetbaggers, klan, juggalos, teenagers, bankers, teetotalers, the Dutch, rapists, and bees.
