I got asked not to come back to a little convenience store when I was in college. I kept getting incredibly lucky and winning free sodas when Pepsi used to have those contests where you'd check under the bottle cap to see if you'd win anything. I won about 15 free sodas in a row before they told me I couldn't come back.

I got banned from buying bettas at Petsmart after I managed to kill five of them in a row. Turns out there was something in the tap water that the dechlorinator wasn't getting. I adopted a dog instead. She's still with me.

I often confuse Beverly Hills Cop with Beverly Hills Ninja, mostly because Beverly Hills kinda sounds like Benny Hill and Benny Hill kinda looks like Chris Farley.

I somehow made it to the age of a a teenager while thinking that Sesame Street was a fairly recent invention for little kids (IE, I thought it had been invented in the then-past few years.) By the time I became a legal adult I had adjusted my expectations and figured it was invented in the 1980s or so, since I'm a movie sperg and knew that Jim Henson's studio worked on stuff like Star Wars, Labyrinth, The Dark Crystal, etc. Only around 2015 did I learn that this show's history dates back to the fucking 1960s. And on top of that, if you count the Wilkins ads where a muppet gets shot in the fucking head over his dislike of coffee, Kermit the Frog dates back to the goddamn 1950s.

I like diet soda, but sugar cokes make me sick to my stomach.

Just watched one last night. I'd probably have known sooner if they had more trivia channels like that back when I first started using the internet.

I'll drop another one for fun: The reason I skipped little kid's shows in the first place is a near thing. My family had to make do without cable a lot when I was extremely young, so I was raised on VHS tapes of older cartoons like Looney Toons and Tom and Jerry. When we did get cable, predictably a toddler addicted to violent adult humor didn't want to sit still for the likes of Teletubbies or Barney. I'm surprised my parents never got shit for that.

Funny to think how much people used to care about that kind of stuff. Nowadays any 4-year old is smart enough to use a computer and have access to all the hardcore violence and titties they want. The next generation is gonna be really fucking weird.
