  1. When i used to be a kid, between the ages 3-7 i was going to my pediatrician alot of times because i was always sick with something, especially during winter. I was pretty much getting used to it and i was always fascinated with the instruments that the doctor had (especially the stethoscope) and he always gave some sweets at the end. Only thing i didn't like was getting a shot, but even that i got used to. What about you guys? Did you liked going to the doctor, did you not, or something inbetween?
  2. Most of us at some part admitted to liking MLP. But are there shows that are intended for children/toddlers that you enjoy to this day. I'm not talking about ones from Cartoon Network or Nickelodeon. I'm talking more about ones from PBS Kids, Nick Jr., Playhouse Disney/Disney Jr., etc. If you would like, post why you like/dislike the shows you mention. Here are mine: Like: - Sesame Street: The most educational TV show in my opinion. - Bill Nye the Science Guy: Good science show. - Reading Rainbow: Good show that encourages kids to read. Also, the host is cool since he used to be in Star Trek: the Next Generation. - Arthur (90's to early-2000's): Good animation and voice acting. Pretty good show based off a children's book. - ZOOM - Pablo the Little Red Fox: I don't know about you, but I can't get enough of the accents. They're too cute. Here's the theme song: - Oswald: Remember that octopus character show from Nick Jr. Even though I make fun of it, I enjoy this show. - Blues Clues (Steve Burns era): Seriously, this show can fit in Tru TV's Worlds Dumbest. - The Busy World of Richard Scarry - Out of the Box - PB&J Otter - Mister Rogers Neighborhood Dislike: - Barney and Friends - Teletubbies - Yo Gabba Gabba - Caillou - Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Walt Disney's rolling in his grave. - Bob the Builder - Jay Jay the Jet Plane: Horrible animation. - Higglytown Heroes - Handy Manny - Lazytown - Bear in the Big Blue House There's also the Tweenies, which I saw when I went to Scotland in 2001 to visit my grandma and other relatives. I don't have a strong opinion on it, though.
  3. I was intrested to know what others favorite cartoons from their childhood? Here are my top 5 1. DBZ Toonami Ftw 2. Ed, Edd, & Eddy- "Butter Toast.." 3. Animaniacs 4. Courage the Cowardly Dog 5. Beavis & Butthead
  4. While it is very rare, some people have fell in love with their childhood friend and married them, but they are a minority compared to the married couples who first met each other as adults. The whole "falling in love with your childhood friend thing" does happen a lot in Anime/Manga and other forms of fiction, but it rarely actually happens in real life. The Westermarck effect, also known as reverse sexual imprinting, is a psychological hypothesis that people who live in close domestic proximity during the first few years of their lives become desensitized to sexual attraction. Here's the Wikipedia page about the Westermarck effect: So basically, If you knew someone before age 10 & were consistently around them, there is often an effect on your brain where you’ll associate them as a sibling. You simply won’t be attracted to them. There are a few small Jewish communities in Israel that raise children collectively & are having issues with people not marrying within the immediate community due to not being attracted to people they were raised with.
  5. So, what's your oldest memory you can recall? It's kind of a random topic- I was reading a thread on glasses where someone said they don't remember life before glasses- and that gave me this idea. Mine is from when I was between 2 and 3 (I'm 25 now) I remember being in my crib standing and looking at myself in the mirror. I also remember that I hated the clear plastic molding guard/cover thing on the top rail and I would try to bite it off a lot. I did actually bite/crack a few chunks off of it. I don't think I ate any- I just remember I just hated it for whatever reason.
  6. As a 5 - 10 year old, What were you guys scared of? Monsters lurking beneath your bed? maybe you've seen a scary movie that haunts you to this day. were you scared of the monsters in your closet? As a child, I was scared of turning on my TV and seeing static appear on the screen, as a kid, I watched "the ring" which was a bad Idea and I was scared of a monster climbing out of the screen and grabbing me. Haha, Lets look back at those moments and laugh! What was your biggest fear as a kid?
  7. Were your parents strict with you as a child? Meaning like, would they hit you or punish you for stuff, or just let things slide? Mine were pretty strict, if I didn't listen to them or the teachers just one time, i remember getting my a$$ whooped by my dad(or mom) with a belt like it was a sport. but after my mom passed my dad seemed to just let things slide.
  8. Title says it all, What did your parents lie to you about? I can't remember (except for the obvious ones) but i'm sure you can!
  9. Seems like simpler times in here. Kindergarten, 1st grade, no responsibilities, etc. Good times. But growing up has its perks.
  10. Because I have. Let me tell a bit about my life. My early years (up to age 6 I guess) was a pretty bad time. I didn't have any friends, I had to attend to preschool twice (which is still a bit of a mystery to me nowadays) and overall felt bad, my mom and dad were always arguing and my dad was a bit scary those times. It ended up in my parents to divorce, and we moved far away from my dad. Since then, I've visited dad now and then from all the way up here. Ever since we came here, I did actually make a friend or two, each of them during primary school (classes 1-6), where my longest-known friend came on the 1st class. He is still my friend these days, much like someone else, but I'll tell more about that shortly. Ok so it was the 6th and final class of the primary school, at which moment I was the oldest pupil of the whole school (caused by attending to preschool twice, meaning that I'm basically a year behind). Moving to middle school (classes 7-9), and that was the worst time of my life to remember so far (can't remember much about my childhood). I was constantly bullied and I hoped I could make friends, but they were basically all just bullies. After I made it through all those years, it was time to move to college, my choice was a business college. It started nicely, the class was nice, but just recently (about 4 months ago) I had thoughts about leaving the school, because the education line I chose (IT & Customer Service I guess) wasn't really made for me. I also turned 18 (October 15th), and shortly after that, we moved again. To the city where the college is, while we had been living in the town for like 10 years. So now that I'm here, I desperately hope to enjoy my studying more in the new school, as well as get more friends - I don't have anyone close to me right now. Now, some info out of the school life. I've NEVER ever done paid job, only the necessary parts throughout school, with the easiest way possible. I'm very antisocial and I'm still a bit anxious about the thought to work someday, I'm still not sure. All this packed together reminds me of how pitiful I am. I have two older sisters, who both have succeeded in a lot of things, while I, desperately wanting friends, is struggling inside. I haven't done anything remarkable, keeping a low profile my whole life. In other words, breathing, and that's all there is to it. But no matter how bad my life has been, I still believe and wait for the better future; as an infant it had been said I couldn't have had a future at all; my life was at risk but thankfully the doctors kept me running. TL;DR I'm weak. Share your weak points of life here!
  11. What was the best thing or moment that happened in your childhood? It can be a trip, a toy, a show, an experience, etc. I don't really have one, I'm just curious what's yours
  12. I got the idea of this topic while I was watching the Hunger Games movie yet again. Anyway, here's the question: How and when did your childhood end? Honestly, it happened when my perverted classmate told me all about his perverted likings.. I'm still a immature person by heart though. :3
  13. The title is pretty self-explanatory. What is your best and worst childhood memory? We were all kids once and some of us still are. *cough* I think my best childhood memory was learning that Santa isn't real because it made me trust my parents a lot more. I know it's a strange best memory but I was so excited to learn that my parents actually loved me and that a huge fat creeper wasn't crawling down my chimney once a year to get a peak at me. My worst childhood memory is probably back when I lived in the country side. In our garage we had a flight of concrete steps leading down to our basement and my father had repeatedly told me not to go near them. He turned his head for two seconds and I was there quicker than ever. The next thing my father heard was: "Thump thump thump thump thump thump" and turned back to see me tumbling down concrete stairs head first. So now I want to hear from all of you! TELL ME TEH MEMORIES!
  14. This idea for a new thread just came to me: what were your best childhood memories? Mine were back when my parents used to take me and my siblings to the Volusia Speedway dirt track races every weekend, if I remember right I must've been about 8, 9 and 10 years old, those were good times, probably my best childhood memories right there. I also have so many good memories of when I lived in Illinois and we would go out to my cousin's house every winter and he would attach a sled to his tractor and pull me and my brother around on it in the snow, and during the warmer months we would ride go karts and 4-wheelers around their land. So what about y'all?
  15. I heard that people tend to view their childhood friends as siblings, and that's one of the reasons why not many people fall in love with their childhood friends. Is that true?
  16. Did your parents ban certain tv shows in your house? Which ones? Do you agree with the banning? These shows were "officially" banned in our house. Fairly Odd Parents Ed, Ed, and Eddy Courage the Cowardly Dog Codename Kids Next Door Fosters Home for Imaginary Friends Only the 2nd and 3rd ones made sense to me. Fairly Odd Parents was been banned since... well... i cant remember. It's not because of magic or anything, it's was.... something else (seriously, my parents dont even remember). As for KND, and FHIF, they forgot about the ban but I remembered and didn't watch the shows ever after... which sucked since they were absolutely awesome. As for Fairly Odd Parents, I'm still way too scared to watch it, even though i'm 17 and watch much more scarier shows....
  17. Was there ever a movie scene from your childhood that scared you for months on end? It doesn't even have to be from a horror movie. For example, I remember seeing Stephen King's IT as a child and the scene where the kid is pulled into the drain with that clown's wide, tooth-filled mouth opening was enough for me to stay at least ten feet away from every sewer drain in existence for well over a year. Or, the scene in Labyrinth where Sarah falls down a hole and there are hands poking out of the wall, supporting her and making faces that talk. ;~; Scared the hell out of me. So, any scene in particular that scared you as a child?
  18. I've got a little nostalgic today Hope there wasn't topic like that before, at least I've searched, honestly So - How was your childhood like? Mine was good one, there so many things to remember. A lot of books and time to read them. Bicycling without fear (idk how many times I fall, but still tried to do some tricks ). Climbing trees (and falling from them lol). Fires and baked popatoes. Warcraft I and II and ancle's house . Football, voleyball et cetera. Granny's pies. Sunny plains and school days. Trips with parents and camps with friends. New Year's holidays at great grandfather house. Small travels which then was a great adventuries and now for me it's 20 minutes walk throught common places. Secret houses on the trees and cheap and tasty icecream. Also I was fencer so tornaments in other schools and towns. And a much much much more. Looking back I'm really very happy about my childhood, there a lot to remember that I mentioned above just vague shapes of what I see in my head right now But it's a little sad that I'm adult already And that about you? What you seeing than you looking back into your childhood? Are you happy with it? Are you sad that it's over (well if it's over for you ofc)?
  19. In Episode 23 The Cutie Mark Chronicles, it showed Pinkie's childhood on the rock farm. The part I'm thinking of is where she makes a party & everyone stands there, silent & shaking, until the father expresses his thoughts. No one dares to have an opinion until he has one & then everyone agrees with him. I'm no expert, but I do watch Law & Order SVU. Am I on to something, or trying to make too much soup from 1 potato? I'd put in a link, but I have no idea how to do that, so I won't
  20. As a kid we all had that one book we would ask our parents to read us again and again. Sometimes we still even like to read it occasionally what was your favorite book when you were little? Do you still like it? Let us know! I'll tell mine later
  21. I just had a thought about some toys I remember that were big in my childhood. Such as Lego's, easy bake ovens, and those creepy "furby" things... *Shivers* Anyway, what toys are nostalgic to you? (No gak, gak is too gak.)
  22. Hi guys! What are your favorite cartoon(s) now? What were your favorites as a kid? As a kid: Pokémon. Yes I am a girl, but I really liked this show. Not only that, but I adored the video games and the toys. I was kinda obsessed until 6th grade when I lost interest. Just out of curiosity: what is your favorite Pokémon(s)? (If you love the franchise, that is). Now: None other than My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Those cute little ponies drew me in as well as the fantasy elements and the world building. I have been a fan since 2012 and I'm still going strong!(: Note: Anime counts too!
  23. Every kid draws something at some point, and most parents are happy to hold on to it for a very long time. If you have any old artwork from when you were a kid, wether it's a drawing, a sculpture, a poem, or anything else, share it here. It is important for us all to remember where we started, and to remember a time when it didn't matter what your art looked like, only that you made it. A time when your imagination was completely free. If you don't know where your childhood art is, ask your parents, they most likely saved something. The holidays are coming, and this thread will still be here, so if you're going to see family, you can share those memories with them and here with us. My submission: This is a picture I drew in elementary school. We were told a story about a family going out into a forest and putting apples and popcorn on strings onto a tree for Christmas. We were then told to draw the scene, given instructions to shade the side of the trees. I believe I was in either second or third grade when I made this. Please excuse the glare from my camera flash, the lighting here isn't that good.
  24. We all had our own personal childhood fears and some seem kind of silly if we look back at them. So what where you scared of as a kid? Can be anything, ranging from an everyday life object, to something you have seen in the movie.
  25. Welcome to my new blog series, A Vine Whipping rant. In this series, I will go on a rant about stuff that bother me. So lets start with the first rant, 90s kids. Now let me get this out of the way first, I'm OK if you are a 90s kid or get nostalgic over your childhood, it's human nature to want to go back and relive your childhood due to how stressful life is when you're older. Heck, even me at 16 sometimes wish I was younger again so I wouldn't have much homework and life felt more innocent. However, what I don't like about some 90s kids is how elitist and arrogant some of them act. They will constantly talk about how the 90s was like "TEH BEST DECADE EVER MAN!" and everyone respected their parents, nothing bad happened (uh LA Riots and Columbine shooting anyone?), and how everything in existence was much better. And when they talk about the 2000s, the usually talk about like it's some post apocalyptic wasteland with constant war going on, and every kid is just some spoiled brat raised by Justin Bieber. See what I mean? Now let me just say that I was born in 1998, so I qualify as what they cal a 2000s kid, you know the spoiled brat they would think I am. If you know me on the forums, do I act like that? No. They're just generalizing everyone my age as if they're screwed for life. They will sometimes even tell them this on the internet in the most elitist way possible. Yeah, they say this to people who are much younger than them. What if they did this in real life? That sure would make you look mature *sarcasm* It doesn't help that people around my age (aka people born in the late 90s) try to say how much 90s kids they are, without even remembering a second of the decade. At least I don't deny I'm a 2000s kid. Also, 90s kids usually wonder why they do that. Do you wanna know why? It's because you guys preach that the 90s was like heaven on earth and that their childhood was like hell on earth, so then the younger ones will think that and start wanting to be 90s kids. So in reality, it's your fault they do that. Even I fell for this at one point. Then I realized how stupid that is, and valued what I did have in my childhood, especially since I grew up in the early to mid 2000s, when people really feared terrorism. Also no, networks can't bring back the old shows, especially with new episodes. The way networks make money is making new shows, not being stuck in 1994. I will admit that the networks aren't as good as they used to be, but do I think bringing back the old shows is the solution to improve them? No. Making new and creative shows is the way to go. Also, they say that people like Justin Bieber and One Direction are bad (OK I agree with that) and that their music was better. Uh, they still had pop artists that sang virtually the same things as they did like Arron Carter and the Backstreet Boys. Also, isn't music taste largely subjective? So don't act like just because someone likes those stuff, they're stupid. I don't like those people, but I don't say that to fans of them who don't act stupid. I know some people who like them, and hey, they're not like that. Finally, they say that kids are just hooked on electronics. Uh. you guys had stuff like Game Boys, Tamagachis, and video games in general. Also they say how much modern tech sucks, on Facebook with their iphones. Hypocrites much? Overall, I'm OK with someone reminiscing about anything in their childhood. It's just if they act like an elitist prick to people who didn't grow up with their stuff, then I have a problem. Here's a funny 90s kid story. I was reading a 90s kid Facebook page out of boredom and they posted a picture of an older My Little Pony. The comments were saying about how this is so much better than the new one and how it's mlp before it got so annoying. Did you even watch G4?
