Can read five languages, can speak three. Linguistics always fascinated me, so here I am.
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 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.
Have you been watching DefunctTV? It's a great channel.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.
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.Have you been watching DefunctTV? It's a great channel.
