years ago a mate asked if i help build a shed in hin back garden, so being the guy i am i agreed and we levelled his garden, built a concrete base and put up this little shed, 14ft x 9ft. but at the rear of the garden was a wall level with his shed base but also the rear garden wall of the house behind his, but because the houses were built on a sloping road (his being higher) the other house was about 20ft lower.
i stood on the wall pulling the roof felt tight and took a step backward, and yes. landed on my back in the neighbours garden.
in the garden were rose bushes and other shrubs so spent ages pulling thorns out of unspeakable places.

Haha that should be on youtube!

I too fell over a 20ft wall years ago..I was being chased by nuns (I was about 13 by the way lol and was just messing about with mates)..Jumped over a 3ft wall to make my escape but the drop on the other side felt like it never ended :lol: If I ever find myself running away from nuns again, I'll know better :shock:

How did that happen? The nuns didn't look like Robbie Coltrane and Eric Idle did they?

I can honestly say I didn't hang around to see what they looked like..It may sound strange but at 13, being chased by nuns was one of the scariest moments of my life! And I've seen Madonna live, it doesn't get much scarier than that :lol:

We were just cutting through the grounds of a Nazareth house complex..I remember us looking round and seeing a good six nuns coming towards us. In my mind they were about to burn us for walking on their grounds but they were probably just going to tell us to leave. So, anyway, we ran towards this 3ft high wall and jumped over. It must have looked like the lemmings death leap! There was about 10 of us, some ended up caught in trees n most of us in a heap on a grass bank. Bet the nuns were p*ssing themselves :lol:

Well, still don't like nuns much :shock:

I hate falling in slow motion! Especially when you can't help thinking how stupid you are that you didn't realise that you would probably fall!
