Building a quality pillow fort took effort and time, but the end result was usually worth it. Even as adults, pillow forts are still fun.

When you and all your friends would plan to go to one person's house, so you would all ride bikes and meet there. You knew your friends had arrived when you saw their bikes all over the lawn.

Also, if you accidentally hit them, you would beg them not to tell, and it was like negotiating a hostage situation.
Before Kanye used autotune in all his songs, children were creating autotuned hits by singing into a fan. The fan made your voice sound like Darth Vader, and it could occupy anyone for hours.
