While not adventurous in and of itself, shaking the limb to cause Finny to fall is the most serious act he commits that leads to a loss of innocence. Given that he is later accused of purposefully harming Finny by Brinker, and then has to deal with Finny's death following an operation Finny needs after learning the truth, this single event sets up most of the novel's conflict.
