Have you ever wanted to do something silly? Have you ever felt like throwing a temper tantrum?
Or maybe you just want to release your pent up energy. Well, nowadays, many people have an interest in bouncing. You may ask why and how this trend came into play. Well, read on and I will tell you why and how this all started.
The History of the Bouncing Craze:
Have you ever thought about how bouncing started?
Well, according to the internet, bouncing was a popular trend during the middle school years. Other sites say bouncing came about after a tragic event involving an African American man with the last name Jackson. However, this all started on 4chan. The goal was to bounce for as long as you can without stopping. Once you touch the ground, then you are out. The last person or team standing wins. This game was later named “Bouncey”, after the first few people who played it went by the screen names “bouncy1”, “bouncy2”, and so on. The game soon spread out to other websites and forums, then to other languages like Spanish, French, German, and even Japanese! It became really popular and it still is today. In fact, you can buy a bounce house for your backyard.
How To Play:
Before you start bouncing, make sure there are no hazards in your surroundings that can hurt you. For example, there should be nothing sharp close by like broken glass on the floor. Also, remove anything that can be knocked over like vases and other breakable items. If someone is in the house with you, make sure to get their permission before playing.
