From diving boards:

To dams:

To walls:

To the bleachers at Smallville High:

It often seemed like Smallville contractors intentionally built their projects as cheaply as possible, perhaps in the knowledge that Superboy would bail them out of any structural failures. Indeed, one wonders if his move to Metropolis resulted in dozens of deaths due to building collapses.

Incidentally, that second panel comes from one of those stories where the Kents adopt a second boy with super powers.
