I grew up in the city and some of my favorite things are not on that list:

Tag a building
Set a bum on fire
Catch (and release) a sewer rat
Poke a stick at a dead bloated body down by the pier

Here are some that I crossed off my bucket list before turning 12:

51. Sneak the bottle marked Creme de Menthe out of Daddy's liquor cabinet and make a tasty green milkshake!
52. Steal the family car and have your little brother work the pedals while you do the steering on the way to Gramma's house.  Sneak back home when you crash at the end of the driveway and pretend you had nothing to do with it.  Beat your little brother up when he squeals.
53. Mix every chemical in the garage together to see what happens, then pour the resulting mixture on Mommy's prize rose bushes to "help them grow."
54. Put on cammo and face paint and then take your BB rifle and go hang out after dark in a construction zone and shoot the orange lights off of traffic sawhorses.  Then when you run out of those because they're all broken, hide at the top of a hill and shoot at cars.  Laugh when the police try to catch "two armed gunmen" in Connor's Woods with a helicopter's search light.  Explain to your parents how it wasn't your fault when you're dragged home by police officers.
55. Wrap towels around the end of a ladder so it doesn't make any noise when you lean it up against Jenny Linkletter's house and climb up to peek through her bedroom window while she undresses down to her panties and does a sexy dance number while singing along to "Born in the USA."  Explain to your parents how it wasn't your fault when you're dragged home by Jenny's dad (who coincidentally is also a police officer).  Bonus points awarded if you take Jenny to prom seven years later when you're both in highschool.
56. Get a bunch of kids together and walk so far up into a drainage culvert that you get lost in the storm sewer system, then compound your problems by splitting up to find the way out.  Explain to your parents why it's not your fault when rescue workers take four hours to find you and you get dragged home by police officers.
57. Dare your friend to climb a tree naked, and then steal his clothes and run home when the moron does it.
58. Dig up huge lumps of red clay from the creek bed and then pack them onto parked cars' wheels.  Laugh when someone finally pulls out, gets a few yards, and then screeches to a halt when the clay dislodges and smacks their car's undercarriage with a "whump" like they just ran over a dog or small child.
59. Steal four "Detour: Left Arrow" sawhorses from the construction site that you got caught shooting up earlier.  Set them up in a nearby road so that drivers have to take a left turn, then the next left turn, then the next left turn, and then the next left turn, putting them back on the road they were just on, one block back.  See how many of them make the round trip more than once (surprisingly many, as it turns out).

14. Dam a stream

Sorry, kid...not without permission from the Planning Council, the Town Council, the county, the state, and an environmental impact statement, filled out in triplicate.

Hey, you'll get your merit badge in red tape, though...

Cheron: My kids are the outdoor types so we would call this list "the weekend."

/only nine year old in his class with his own set of crampons

I'm guessing he's the only 9yr old in his class because he got held back a couple times since he wastes all his time outside?

That is an idiotic article.    Get chased by a mean 'possum isn't even in the top ten.

Probably a hipster article.
