    Your childhood home is unique; it is the only building you will know how to get right across without touching the floor.

    In one of his books, Bill Bryson recalled that he knew what the bedrooms in his childhood home looked like from the tops of the wardrobes, such was his familiarity with the Kid Method of house exploration.

    :D

    Heh, I rarely did it at home, jumping from couch to couch, as we had too much room between them, but that lava would cover the floor in every playground I've ever been in.

    The carpet at a great-aunt's was perfect for it. It actually looked like a flowing river of lava.

    Yep, shades of red, orange, yellow and black in a swirly pattern

    The entire neighbourhood where I grew up was great for the lava game, because the designers of it got creative with the street-tiles and there are streets with big bands of red tiles over the pavement, that are great rivers of lava. In fact, my own street has a big expanse of red and yellow tiles like a lake of fire and lava, with the occasional safe blue tile in it. I often played the lava game when just walking somewhere.

    Hot Lava!

    Man, does that bring back memories.

    Most of which consist of my mother screaming at us to get off the goddamned furniture.

    I'll let you know when I get there.
    Of course I know the "the floor is poisonous"-game (as it's called here).

    We never played it at home though :( I'm thinking either your homes were cramped with furniture or our homes were more spacious :lol:
