I remember as a kid, having just about everything a young boy needed right in his pockets.
On any given day emptying them would most likely produce:
A book of matches.
A Barlow 2 blade pocket knife.
A few firecrackers.
A crumpled up picture of a tit cut from some kids fathers playboy.
A .22 bullet or two.
A sucrets tin with a couple cigarettes.
A roll of red caps.
I know there were more things that I can't recall, that most likely would get a kid these days labeled as something, put in jail, or permanently put on the no fly list.
We'd all probably still be in jail today if the current thinking applied back then.
We were absolute sexual molesting predators because every now and then, we might sneak up on a pretty girl and steal a kiss.
