I thought that you could combine any two species of animals, didn't matter how different they were, and create really cool hybrids. I was constantly imagining up these hybrids thinking I'd be the one to really give it a go and discover all of them one day

When i was 7 years old, i liked animals a lot and especially gazelles. This one time when i was watching a nature documentary, I decided to be like a gazelle and imitate its jumping and running.
So I did. I tried to jump like an awesome gazelle but i ended up falling on my knees and hit my mouth on the computer desk. It hurt real bad and I spent the rest of the day screaming and crying in pain! I never watched another animal documentary again! At least I learned my lesson to never imitate what you see on animal documentaries ever again!
When I was a kid, there was this one toy in the store I REALLY wanted but it was too expensive. My friend for some reason told me that if you really want it, you have kick a rabbit barefoot and say "I NEED IT!" and then tell your parents.

I used to believe that fireflies went to sleep for the night as soon as it got dark. Or at least that's what I was told, probably so I would go inside. It wasn't until my 20's when I was hiking with some friends at night and saw fireflies that I expressed out loud, 'Wow, I can't believe these guys are out so late.' It got quiet and at that point I realized...
I used to believe that starfish have two arms and two legs and that the other branch is the head. I blame Spongebob.
