Things I didn't know until recently: boards on roofs

You know those wooden planks which are attached to roofs at one side.  Well apparently they are there to stop big lumps of snow sliding off onto sheds/conservatories or other outbuildings near houses.

They are NOT there to catch the balls that you throw onto the roof, or over roofs. As a child I would try and see if I could throw a ball (usually a tennis ball) over the roof of the house and it would usually get trapped on the wooden board. Putting a swift end to my shenanigans.

And I only discovered this recently, as in, a few weeks ago.
I am 34.
