Astoness I used to live above shops in Shard End and we had a great flat roof over the shops, and yes we used to pour water over at night and in the morning you had a great slide, only problem looking back if you made your slide to good there was about a 30 foot drop to look forward to but when you was young you didn't think.

I used to jump out of my bedroom window on to the front lawn.
The temptation is still there but it will have to wait until I retire.

People have been telling me to take a running jump for years.
Volty you have been practising retirement for forty years to my knowledge.
