Wow, okay well, I have no idea any of my families history nor have I ever had any interest in investigating or learning it. 

My first pet birds were chickens named chipmunke and Oreo. My first parrot was a tiel named ytic evorg (yeti for short). 

Uhhhhhh, I used to be an avid hunter. Up until my keen tracking skills led my family to use me to track my mothers unclean hits. It only took one look into the doe's pained eye for me to put up my gun forever.  I still see it in my dreams.

I am/was a big time fisherman and did hunt a little.  I don't anymore similar to why Lorek doesn't.  When I was 15 my good friend kept telling me about a Rabbit he was trying to get for a long time and the animal kept out smarting him.  I told him to give me the BB gun (yes a BB gun) and went off to where he was saying.  The rabbit jumped out of it's burrow and just stopped.  I aimed and hit him in the spine.  How do I know this?  He kept crawling by using his front legs while dragging his dead lower half of a body across the ground.  I then got real scared/sad and put another shot to the back of the head to end his suffering.  It did not do the trick.  He went into convulsions and blood was poring out like I had never seen sad8  I quickly re loaded and ended it.  To prove I was a big time teenage man I brought back my trophy to my friend.  The animal was used for it's meat (not me) but it still haunts me to this day and will never again intentionally take another animals life sadboy3

Hunting doesn't bother me. It's mostly far more humane than meat in the grocers fridge. It is also healhier, tastier, and better for the environment. I am an accurate shot and I only take clear shots. My issue was the encouragement (per se) of my mothers bad shot continually. Hunting, when done properly, I am still in acceptance of. That's just me. I see it as a sustainable quality food source.

I have nothing against hunting, so long as it is done properly.  And yes, with the lack of predators is good for the environment and the hunted species to stay healthier.  My best friend is a big time hunter and I am always feasting on his meat.  Me personally I just can't.  I could if I had to but prefer not to.

I am not against hunting, although I could only do it to save myself/someone or if I were starving.  I am against hunting for sport.  And when you look at it the way Lorek put it, it is more humane. 2sadk

It's OK Debz, we all have a dark side and sometimes it shouldn't/can't be told. There is some bad stuff out there in memory land.

I think we could probably keep this topic going for a long time, as we remember random things. It is neat to hear all these things, the funny and the history alike  thumb

I am lucky enough to have known several of my great grandparents and even my great great grandma. At the age of 26 I still have my great grandma, and knew my great grandpa for 25 years before he passed away. I also had my great great grandma until I was 12. And another great grandpa until i was in junior high.

I love fishing

I helped build a bio chemistry lab, 2 actually. That was a neat but scary experience..it was very high security, you couldnt eat or drink in the rooms because of the dangerous things stored there. That was the hardest Ive worked, but it was neat.

In high school me and me best bud pored a large amount of acid onto the sulfur rocks they provided.  The school was evacuated due to the massive stench. dknow  A week later we stoled a huge bottle of ether and huffed it.  We both passed out and when I woke my friend was still out with the samich bag sucked into his throat ashamed  We survived with mass headaches for 3 days and had a nice school punishment to top it off.  And my kids wonder why I worry! slaph

LOL! I got busted sneaking IN once...

I had worked that night and after work I rode with some friends from work to a party. I drank far too much and made friends with a bush (ouch!) on the way to the car. I got home and mom was waiting up for me...So I (obviously not thinking clearly) Covered my eyes...like if I couldnt see her she couldnt see me. Got up to my room and put on Pajamas then stummbled back down and acted like I was up getting something to eat...she didnt say much that night BUT the next morning she woke me up early to do senior pictures...oiy!


D...OMG! You sound a lot like the stories I have heard from my old teacher of my dad in high school (he was eventually expelled for releasing snakes in the school)

Both incidences occurred via my science class.  The sulfur thing was not dangerous, just REAL stinky dmblaf  I don't know what possessed us to do the ether thing? loco6  We were not allowed back in that class for a while roll

ya'll are cracking me up!  laugh laffhrd 
D! OMG! that is just too scary.
i got caught sneaking in once. mom was in bed (so i thought!) so i came sneaking in the front door. she was sitting in the livingroom in the dark. she said "where ya been?" i said "we're out of coke. i walked to the store to get some." she says "so where is it?" i told her "i threw the empty bottle in the ditch." she didnt buy it. i got to spend my whole spring break babysitting my sister (15 months old at the time) to save her the week's daycare. on firday i called her favorite radio station and dedicated "take this job and shove it" to her for making me babysit.... but i didnt mention that i was doing it for punishment. they played my story on the radio for her and all her friends to hear! she yelled at me for twisting the story.  ashamed  but didnt really get mad, she told me when i got older that she thought it was funny as heck.  dmblaf

when jess sneaked out, i did the same as my mom. i sat in the dark til i saw her leg stick through the window. when i saw it, i turned on the light and i said "i hope you had a good time cause you're grounded." got up and went to bed without another word.

i agree, we could do this forever. as we remember things.

my great grandpa called me feathertail. he said cause i strutted around like a rooster. when he died in '78 we went to tennessee. we visited an aunt i had never met. they had a true old fashioned watercloset. they didnt have any running water in the house. and still had an outhouse, tho they rarely used it since they had gotten the watercloset. they had pigs and (being a city girl) i had never seen a pig in person before. i was amazed. i expected a cute little pink guy with a curly tail. they were black and white and dirty and their tails werent curly! and they were HUGE!!

hmmm, i'll think of more. just give me time....
