Well I guess we can get away doing dumb stuff in our teens that would kill us in our 40's or later?
That too. I injured my back when I was in my teens, because of stupidity. It meant a trip to the ER, but I was out after an exam and a scrip for painkillers. The docs there said that if I did the same stupid stunt in my 30s I'd be looking at permanent injury and long-term physical therapy.
Teenagers aren't actually immortal, but they are still elastic enough to bounce well.
