One of our favorite tricks was an introduction to the electric fence. I spent a lot of time working around the cows and so at times i would be wearing rubber knee boots instead of the local custom for kids of going barefoot most of the time.
Tinker, you reminded me of a game I played with my next door neighbor when I was a kid in Vermont. It was called 'Zap', and consisted entirely of trying to bullshit the neighbor into grabbing your fence. It was almost as much fun when it was off.
