How Far Back Does Your Memory Go?

Most people can only recall back to maybe age 4 or 5 or so and it's long been the conventional wisdom that children aren't able to form permanent useful memories until nearly 5 years old.

But I have definite memories going back to when I was just 2 years old - one of my father standing next to his Karmann Ghia in the garage one morning and another of an ivy patch on the hill behind our house.

Now these are more like mental snapshots than full situational memories but since no photographs of these exist and I've verified the details with my parents, I'm quite sure these are coming from my own memories - and not say the Tyrell Corporation.

But it now turns out that I'm probably not as abby-normal as I assumed:

Up until the 1980s, almost no one would have believed that Isaiah still remembers Iris. It was thought that babies and young toddlers lived in a perpetual present: All that existed was the world in front of them at that moment. When Jean Piaget conducted his famous experiments on object permanence-in which once an object was covered up, the baby seemed to forget about it-Piaget concluded that the baby had been unable to store the memory of the object: out of sight, out of mind.

...According to Patricia Bauer, a professor of psychology at Emory who studies early memory, the general consensus was that a 3-year-old child's memory was a jumble of disorganized information, like your email inbox without any sorting function: "You can't sort them by name, you can't sort them by date, it's just all your email messages."

The past gets stickier, too: Memories no longer slip away after a couple of months. Children a few months under 2 retain memories of experiences a year earlier-half their lifetime ago. But they won't retain those memories into adulthood: No one remembers their second birthday party. For a few reasons-nascent neural structures, the lack of knowledge to make sense of early experiences, the lack of language to represent those experiences-it may be impossible for any part of our lives before, say, 24 months to stick around into adulthood. The average earliest memory-fragmented and lonely, but real-doesn't date until around 3½ years of age.

So what's your earliest memory?

The Cultural Significance of "Convoy"

I have faint memories of the CB craze of the 70's - mostly consisting of asking my parents for a CB radio and being told firmly no. I so wanted to be able to talk to the public without having to go through the media but was stymied (then just 5 or 6 years later I got a 300baud connection to a university mainframe and never looked back).

I wasn't alone in this and that begins to explain why the song "Convoy" captured the whole zeitgeist of the period. And here Christopher Taylor makes the case that CBs were a proto-internet of the 70's and 'Convoy' was a proto-meme.

Sometimes its difficult to look back and understand why some things were popular or even liked. .But others you can figure out, if you understand the setting and what happened around then. And by understanding those cultural events, it helps understand what happens today. Take the song "Convoy" by C.W. McCall.
And all that trucker CB jargon became part of the popular culture a while. Some of them survive to this day, most people know what a bear is in this context, what 10-4 means, and what an 18-wheeler signifies. There are a lot of CB slang sites on the internet, such as CB Gazette. The jargon has expanded over the years, and still is in use. Its interesting to me that this goofy song turned into a national phenomenon; these days it would be an "internet meme" with kids making pictures involving it on sites like 4Chan
'cause we got a little ole convoy rockin' thru the night
Yeah, we got a little ole convoy, ain't she a beautiful sight?
Come on and join our convoy, ain't nothin' gonna get in our way
We gonna roll this truckin' convoy 'cross the USA
Convoyyyyy

Are You Mensa Material?

Well now there's an app that'll let you find out.

Mensa's official Brain Test app was pretty successful when it was released for iOS devices back in 2010, and now - over a year later, it looks like the app will be making its first appearance on other platforms. Mensa announced today that Brain Test is now available to download on Android, BlackBerry and Nokia mobile platforms

.Apparently users who do well in the game should feel confident in taking the Mensa Admission Test - so it's supposed to be a good indication of whether you should consider taking the test or not. Users can mark their improvement through a local score table and even share their test scores on Facebook.

Ranking American Novelists in 1929

According to a poll of literary critics taken 83 years ago. And there were a surprising number of women at the top. I guess the patriarchy was too preoccupied to oppress the womyn writers at the time.

( 1.) Willa Cather (30, 0.96)
( 2.) Edith Wharton (30, 0.78 )
( 3.) Theodore Dreiser (31, 2.18 )
( 4.) James Branch Cabell (29, 1.85)
( 5.) Sherwood Anderson (30, 1.54)
( 6.) Sinclair Lewis (31, 2.36)
( 7.) Thornton Wilder (24, 1.97)
( 8.) Glenway Wescott (22, 1.95)
( 9.) Joseph Hergesheimer (30, 1.67)
(10.) Zona Gale (29, 1.43)
(11.) Booth Tarkington (29, 1.94)
(12.) Ellen Glasgow (29, 1.99)
(13.) Elizabeth Madox Roberts (20, 2.28 )
(14.) Ruth Suckow (27, 2.02)
(15.) William McFee (27, 1.85)
The critics agreed most strongly on two writers - Edith Wharton and Edgar Rice Burroughs, author of the Tarzan books. They agreed that Wharton is wonderful and Burroughs is "not worth reading." Harold Bell Wright, the preacher who wrote The Winning of Barbara Worth, and Thomas Dixon Jr., author of The Clansman, joined Burroughs at the bottom of the heap.

I had to read Ethan Frome in high school and to this day I still regret the precious hours of my life that were wasted on it.

'Mangagement' Rings?

In case their silly moniker wasn't self-explanatory, mangagement rings (or engagement bands as many men prefer to call them) are the male counterparts to the traditional rings women wear to indicate they are engaged to be married. In a number of other countries, it has long been customary for men (in addition to women) to wear engagement rings. However, the practice has only recently gained traction in America.

According to a 2011 study by MensHealth.com and TheKnot.com, 5% of men are currently wearing mangagement rings and 17% say that they are open to the idea.

Only in Japan

A 97-year-old man was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of trying to kill a female relative by slashing her with a sword after he walked about 100 meters to her home using his walker, police said. According to the police, Yoshio Kawamura cut the 84-year-old woman's left hand at about 9 a.m. while saying, "I'll kill you." The sword had a 50-centimeter blade.

Too Dark Down There?

You probably didn't even know there was something wrong with your lady-tint which is driving men away. Well not to worry - it can now be fixed:

A 25-second TV advert for Clean & Dry Intimate Wash is being advertised on prime time television, and shows a woman using the product to lighten her sexual organs to please her man.

The product has attracted condemnation on Twitter and blogging sites, with one (male) user branding it 'the ultimate insult' and others bemoaning the extent of discrimination against darker skin tones.

Described as 'unique', the product is apparently designed to keep the skin 'fresh and protected from infection all day' with the added bonus that it will 'brighten darkened skin in that area...making it many shades fairer.'

12 Definitely have some memories that I know are from before age 5 because they center around the place we lived before we moved at age 5. And one (of receiving and playing with toy train with xylophone for tracks) must have been at 2 because my mom confirmed that I got that set at age 2 when I was sick with the Asian flu.

13 So 3rd night tonight for 2 mile runs in the 1/2 marathon training. Going very well, I'm able to keep a steady pace for the entire 2 miles. Currently averaging 11.7 minute miles, which is well ahead of the 15 minute per mile you have to maintain to avoid being "swept" out of the race.

Even running without knee pain now.

I have off-and-on flash-memories of when the family first moved to America. Winter of '78. The memories get more focused starting at first grade ('80).

My first conscious memory is walking to school with my older sister in 1968 in Dayton, Ohio. I was in kindergarten, and there was a huge dog (he was probably really tiny) behind a chain link fence on the route who would scare the shit out of me every day. The school was only three blocks from our house, but I dreaded that walk for the 18 months we lived there.

A shame Presidizzle Obama wasn't my neighbor back then. He'd have taken care o' that dog, right quick, I imagine.


Does anyone remember that epic October 1982 issue of National Lampoon called "The Utterly Monstrous Mind-Roasting Summer of O.C. and Stiggs"? I swear I must have laughed so hard while reading that issue that warm Old Milwaukee squirted out my eyes, ears, and nose. What a classic.

Evening all,

my earliest memory was from church-it was child care during the service, and I remember deciding to cry, just to see what would happen. The poor fellow who was watching all of us (there were 7 or 8 toddlers in the room) had to have hated me, because I got all the other kids to cry. I was two.

I am paying for that incident with my own kids. Over, and over, and over.

72 I remember bits of things from before 5. I remember when my grandfather was sick and my mom tried to put me in a preschool class in Texas while she was helping her mom and it was awful and nap time was mats on the floor and we went for a walk and there were snakes. I only went once. Then I stayed with my mom.

I have this weird memory of a very high bridge through a city, it was one of those that steeply banked too. It must have been somewhere between Texas and Ohio. I used to have nightmares of that bridge. I don't know why.

I also remember getting patted on the head by the bank robbers as they walked down the street after robbing the bank in the next block and my Greek grandma looking on, but then later neither one of us were able to communicate with the investigators because I was too young and she didn't speak English.

Ships in town from 6 countries for the 200th anniversary of War of 1812 which ended before the battle of new orleans was fought. It took time to reach the battlefield that the treaty of Ghent had been signed. Ships from US, Britain, Canada,France and tall ships from Ecuador, Indonesia and the USCG Eagle. Such fun chatting with sailors from other countries giving them advice on what to see and do while here and talking shop with the helicopter crews from other countries.

My boyfriend is a fellow moron whose nickname here most all of you would recognize (however, to protect his privacy I'll refrain from mentioning it). This week he was admitted to the hospital with heart problems. He's youngish (late 30s) for this type of thing, and it's not something either of us could of imagined happening at this phase in his/our lives.

I don't know how many of you pray. If you do, he desperately needs prayer. And I do, too, for that matter.

Thanks for listening.

97 My earliest memory is the day my sister was born. I was born in September of 1948, and she was boron in July of 1950, so I was 2 months shy of 2.

It is a very detailed memory. My mother was at the hospital and I had some sort of stomach ailment, so my grandmother had put newspapers all over the floor in case I threw up. We drove to the hospital and I stood in the front seat next to my grandfather. (My father was working a construction job and was out of town.)

When we got to the hospital, I saw nuns with the French wimples (Order of St. Vincent) and being from a Protestant family, I thought they were angels. Then I threw up on the lawn of the hospital and I even remember seeing the letters from the alphabet vegetable soup.

I also remember the cat getting in bed with me in a crib, so I couldn't have been very old.

Years later I doubted the reality of that memory because everyone I asked said there had never been a carnival in that spot. Recently I was on a Facebook page devoted to my hometown and someone said there had indeed been a carnival at that spot. So all those years I thought perhaps I was recalling a dream our a fantasy, I had an actual memory! I must have been only three or four.

104 Earliest memory: I was two years old (1963) and my mom and I were visiting my grandparents in Chicago, coming from LA.

There was a hellacious thunderstorm going on and I was scared. Every time it thundered I would put my hands over my ears. My mom's little sister, who was twelve at the time, told me not to put my hands over my ears like a baby (she didn't say it in a mean way). I would promise each time that I wouldn't. But every time it happened, I would forget that promise.

I also remember over feeding the fish we were house sitting when our house was being finished.

From what I understand you can develop memories in line with how verbal you are--if you have the words to describe something you can remember it better or it is stored differently than if you don't have the words for it.

logprof, I wish that was the case for him. He actually has early-stage congestive heart failure, which is a super scary prospect. Thankfully he's young, physically and mentally strong, and a lot can be done with drugs and lifestyle management. So I'm praying hard.

I remember being dragged by my mom somewhere and I remember seeing John Kennedy in Ohio in 1959 age 4 something
Memory is a trickster yes, but I have and I bet almost everyone has continous memories starting around 4 ish or very soon thereafter
The Mensa is not what it used to be when it started. I quit high school twice but for want of something to do loaded me and a 6 pack into the car and drove 18miles up the highway to the testing city, found the place, (only had 4 on the road) and did pretty well. 99th percentile area, got the invite for that group, which is a different part of Mensa affilation, but only signed up for the regular brain shagging. All because I wanted to join their discussion groups on chess-games-and sex years before I had AOL access. Still have membership, but screw the bastages, they want to save bums, not hunt them.

I tried to screw him over in ME3 by lying about the cure. I. just. couldn't. do. it. Supposed to be a game, and I'm playing a character I went full renegade on. I just couldn't screw him over like that.

Funny how you can get emotionally attached.

I actually know one of the writers. I got to know him about 15 years ago when he was working at Turbine. He is just an amazingly talented writer when it comes to building a complex, but coherent story.

187 I think my earliest memory was at my grandma's house and staring down the steps into the basement while my parents went to go look for something there - from the perspective of a 2 or 3 year old, it was pretty intimidating, and I was scared even to look down there again for years.

I also remember my sister's first birthday party, which would have been about 3 months before I turned 3. She had a cake with decorations that looked like clown faces with ice cream cones as the hats. I begged my mom for one of those because I thought it was actual ice cream, and I was very disappointed to find out that they were made of some sort of baking fluff, and tasted really awful.

I also remember my 3rd birthday party - I got a fire engine riding toy, and my cousin who was 11 tried to ride in it. It came with two ladders but one of them got lost right away (basically, nobody could find it it after the party) and so I was always a little sad about that.

I'm amazed, though, at what my 2-year-old remembers already. A couple months ago, she saw a picture of her on a toy in a mall, she pointed at it and blurted out "Cedar Rapids", even though a) we hadn't been there in at least 3 months, b) she wasn't yet 2 when the picture was taken, and c) although we told her that we were in Iowa and visiting grandma, I don't think that we had ever made the point to her where we were on our day-trip to Cedar Rapids.

197 Funny thing about Mensa: all the really smart people I know have the same opinion of them -- that Mensa is full of the kind of insecure-arrogant pricks who seem to think they have something to prove regarding their intelligence. Result: none of the really smart people I know have ever wanted to join Mensa.

(Note that I did not say that all Mensa members are like that; far from it. But there are too many of the arrogant-prick types, and they're the ones who show up to all the meetings, so if you attend Mensa meetings, you're going to run into them a lot. Result: most of the grounded, sane people get driven away because they don't want to deal with the pricks.)

Honestly, I can somewhat see the SS agents' point. "Escorts" are supposed to be classy. "Escorts" get referred by agents, like the Emperor's Club in NYC. They don't troll nightclubs. Nightclub trolls are a step up from streetwalkers. No way should they be asking for escort rates.

Oh, yeah, and "escorts" don't tend to have misunderstandings about the bill. When you hire a date at the Emperor's Club, you know what you're getting for your cash. Spitzer's fling was not one of his 99 problems until a third party dropped the dime on him.

This tells me that the Colombian ho's weren't Firefly-esque "Companions"; they were just ho's, and at least one of them figured these yanquis a ripe target for a shakedown.

229 There's a book called "God's Child Andrew" by Sandra Johnson, and one of the things she mentions is that at the time that her son, Andrew, died, she didn't think her daughter, who wasn't quite a year old, would have any memories of her brother. Years later, she said, when the conversation turned to Andrew, the daughter said she recalled Andrew coming up and surprising her repeatedly at the pool one time they were there. The scary thing about it was that the daughter was only about 3 months old at the time, and it was something that even the mother had forgotten.

A "three dog night" refers to a really cold night in which you need to
huddle (Not Fuck you morons) with three dogs to stay warm.

254 I have very vivid memories of living in NJ when I was 3-4 years old- walking with my mom, older sister and baby brother to school every day. My sister was in kindergarten and first grade and I'm two years younger. On the way home from dropping my sister off, my mom would buy me Pretzel sticks that came in a little box. I also remember epic fights with my sister and the neighbor kids. I even remember getting yelled at by their mom. My most lasting memory is of a daddy-long-legs spider crawling up my leg while I was watching my dad work on the car in the garage. To this day, they're the one bug that scares me.

My dad was in the military, and we moved quite a bit- I went to three schools in the first grade. I have always thought that military kids (or any who move around a lot) have more vivid memories of their childhood because the scenery changes more frequently. I'd be interested in what other brats like me recall of their childhoods.

We eat a lot of Lebanese food now, because A. It's really healthy, and B. we love it. Get a good blender to make homemade hummus and baba ghanouj, which you can use as dips with cut up veggies or whole wheat pitas, or as a spread for sandwiches with cucumber and roasted red pepper, with a little chicken or grilled salmon, if you want meat.

Anyway, we love ya, and hope for a quick and long recovery for your sweetheart!

269 Lots of legitimate gripes about the ending, Beserker. It's a reasonable tactic to play the game up the end, and turn off the game before the final cut scene.

Most complaints aren't about the lack of an option for a happy ending, but that it makes no sense. There are lots of bizarre logic flaws.

One of my favorite reviews that rips into the problems with the ending is by the Angry Joe Show on YouTube.

However, Bioware has committed to a free DLC this summer that will explain the ending better. They won't make it happier, but they will make it make more sense.

272 When I was around 3, I pulled a cup of boiling hot coffee off the counter and it spilled down my chest; I still have the scars though the thatch and age has them hidden now. Before the thatch grew, I asked my parents about the scars and got the scoop -- but to be honest, I don't really remember the incident even though it involved a trip to the hospital.

It's a sort of implanted memory. Keep in mind that eye witness testimony is the least reliable form of evidence around. Your mind plays tricks with you. You hear stories and can incorporate them into personal, visual memories.

Note that I am not calling anyone a liar. It's just that for me, those early memories are not there.

276 198 168The ending of ME 3 is easily the biggest middle finger to the audience I've ever experienced in a video game. Choices matter, my ass. Choose one of 3 colors and get the same cutscence.
Its not that bad. Really, the whole series was kind of stupid. It had a charm like some kind of sci-fi channel B movie, but the story was so generic who cares how it ends.
The part where you cure the "genophage" felt like theending for me. Everything after that was just wrapping up a silly Star Wars knock off.

Posted by: robot voice at April 18, 2012 11:21 PM (xXhWA)

277 Precisely. And to me the whole dog eating thing is a sign that not only wasn't Obama vetted at all due his "worldly" background.

(1) This "revelation" wasn't new and yet somehow it was. How much stuff will we learn about Obama now that people are willing to listen?

(2) He wrote that passage (and I do think that was in his original manuscript that Ayers kept in) for a number of reasons: (a) It made him look worldly, as you say, and cool. See how he just appraises their relative taste merits. (b) It made Lolo look like a dumb backwards hick. And he hated Lolo. (c) It played to his view of himself as king of the underclass. He was among them, but he was not of them. And they should be grateful.

281 That Obama ate dog in a foreign country is not a big deal. That the left is reacting the way it is reacting is a bigger deal. And funny. Part of winning is going to be undermining the sense of history and inevitability that the Obama campaign still tries to project.

327 "Part of winning is going to be undermining the sense of history and inevitability that the Obama campaign still tries to project."

Not only that: undermining the credibility of message and meme. Undercut his attacks in unexpected and vivid ways until the heretofore complacent people learn they need to doubt what comes out of his mouth. Then they'll actually listen when the facts are presented.

"Just don't see why you'd raise a carnivore for meat. Seems terribly inefficient."

Yeah, but in Asia dog meat has a reputation for health benefits, especially for men. Remember it being reported that Chinese astronauts had been eating dog meat to keep up their strength during missions? Supposed to really boost the yang.

... and the fact that dog might have been served at one or more White House dinners, maybe even a state event or two, is a real howler ... PETA hardest hit.

Three little problems with the video: Hitler's dog was named Blondi; she was a female German Shepherd (ok, no bitch jokes); and she was fully grown when Hitler poisoned her shortly before he offed himself (he wanted to be sure the cyanide capsules he had been given worked). Eva Braun supposedly hated Blondi (insert bitch joke here) and reportedly used to kick her under the table when Adolf wasn't looking.

372 I remember having eye surgery when I was 18 months old.

Prior to the surgery, I remember being dropped off in a nursery/toy room and being deathly afraid of the bigger kids which were probably 3-4 years old. The room had those bright-colored plastic hollow alphabet blocks that were becoming the rage in the mid 60's.

I also remember waking up in my crib post-surgery with splints on both arms so I wouldn't be able to touch my eyes. I remember the crib was huge and had a lid on it so I couldn't escape. I remember the panic I felt because I could not suck my thumb nor hold the satin edge of my blanket to my cheek for comfort.

I told my mom about these memories some 30 years later, and she was floored about how much I had remembered. I guess that some types of trauma are burned into memory no matter what age.

378 Earliest memory: riding piggyback on my grandpa's shoulders; the old oscillating fan on the floor in their kitchen. He died when I was two.

Second-earliest memory: my baby brother being brought home from the hospital when I was two and a half. His little pecker looked like a thumb with a bandage on it (he'd just been circumcised in the hospital). But I already knew that you didn't ask about "down there," so I pointed instead to his unhealed navel and said, "It looks like a raisin on his tummy!" which they thought was so cute.

Thirty years later, I finally told my sister this, and she said, "My God, you do remember."

Yup.

Muslims have gotten a lot more militant since the 1970s gas crisis and especially since 9/11. So much so that we can't conceive of what it was like before then.In Muslim countries, the tourist areas of cities were as western as Europe. Only the most rural and backward women wore head coverings. Iranians and Turks drank and Asian "Muslims" were more culturally Asian than Muslim.It wouldn't surprise me if Lolo were a Muslim, but wouldn't fuss about eating pork or even dog if it wee culturally relevant.But I'm starting to think it was very much made up.

Any culture thatbreeds people that don't turn to human-shaped Play-Doh in the presence of a happy Lab is just not worth the time of day. Chisel that bit of wisdom in stone - no matter how bad your day was, a happy Lab makes it better 100 of 100 tries. Sure, they jab you in the junk with their noses, and jump and slobber and paw at you, but deep down, it's still pretty great. Last I checked, goats and sheep don't fetch, don't hug, and won't wrestle in a platonic way like labs will.

I have had two rats as pets. The Marquis of Alverstoke was especially fond of French Fries. He only lived three years, but he was a good beastie. Frederica came after him, and she was prettier...softer, less horrifying tail, and very good at escaping from her cage.

Dogs and horses work at a visceral level with me, thus a religion that doesn't accept dogs as human companions has a major flaw as far as I am concerned. Of course, the muz have far more serious religious dogma issues than this one (like killing infidels).

404 I have three very early memories:

- Waking up in my crib in a sky blue room with a small window high on the wall.

- Watching a Coast Guard helicopter land in a field across the street from my house. I remember the orange and white, which is how I know it was a Coast Guard helicopter. I was captivated until the blades stopped turning.

- Dad arranged to get me on a fireboat for some celebration or the other. Before we got on the boat, we hung out at the firehouse, where I was introduced to the magic of root beer. I was enjoying myself on the boat until they turned on the water sprayers, which made a horrible noise. I started crying. I recall feeling bad because I thought my crying must have disappointed my dad.

All of those had to have occurred before I was 4.

I doubt he's even a Deist unless you're allowing room for Gaia, but I think he's into her for the money. If I had to bet, I'd put him on the same spiritual path as all his fellow-travelers - if not full-blown acknowledged atheist (at least to himself), he's almost certainly a secular humanist who vaguely alludes to the possibility ofa higher power, but prefers to focus on the day-to-day task of self-worship. If the God-guy would ever bother showing up,Barry might throw somelove his way, but until then, he has a mirror, and it's all making sense.

I remember the hansel and gretel record and trick-or-treating at before age 2 1/2, and the babysitter Rebecca that lived next door, and various misadventures...

I have very clear memories from the age around 24 mos. Playing with my dad's typwriter in a dormer, watching my mother brush her hair in an alcove that could only be reached by a secret passage; of the dangerous gap over the stairwell, of my mother looking for our cat, going out the garage that JUST SMELLED AWfUL, and my mom crying her eyes out and digging with a shovel. Poor Pooh-Bear I surmised although I didn't exactly know what the shovel was for. We had a rose tree and a swing set and the field in back ofour house contained a pony.

Posted by: A Swedish Kni-ght at April 19, 2012 12:05 AM (LYwCh)

439 Someone said that early things of significance stay in memory. Well, I have had many of those.

But I had forgotten one thing, and, about a year ago, my mom reminded me of it. When she did, the whole memory came back in a flood.

I have had four fathers. My mom has been married three times: the first time to my biological father, the Kenyan; the third time to the man who has been my *real* father for some 41 years. My mom's second husband never wanted to be my father. She married him when I was about three.

After my mom and my biological father got divorced--before I was a year old--I went to live with my great-aunt and great-uncle, both forty years my senior. My great-uncle--the fourth father--was the one who fed my love of learning.

I loved both aunt and uncle and lived with them until I was nine. That's when Mom married the man who is still my dad to this day. (Uncle died in 2000 and Aunt--90 years old--lives in a nursing home.)

When I lived with my aunt and uncle, I would visit Mom and her second husband on weekends. The husband never took to me. Oh, he didn't abuse me, but he treated me like I was...a non-entity.

One weekend, I went to visit them and my mom was called to work. She went, and left me there with him. He looked at me for a few minutes and then opened the door to walk out.

"Don't open the door to anyone," he said and then he was gone. I was four years old.

I remember sitting in their first floor apartment, feeling lost, alone and afraid. Then, for some reason I looked out the window. There was my uncle getting out of his truck and coming up the steps! I opened the door, ran out and jumped into his arms.

"I want to go home," I said to him. "Let's go home then," he responded. My mom and her second husband divorced not long after this.

I now view that whole scenario as a sign that God exists and that He is paying attention to those whom He calls or plans on calling. In short, I believe in miracles.

Fight the doctors. Find the best ones you can, ones who won't treat him like he's an old retiree. Most people, especially younger patients, can recover a great deal, sometimes even completely.

Working with the doctors is almost harder than fighting a body that won't do what it's supposed to.

463 My earliest memory is standing in my crib and looking out the second[-story window at the el running behind the houses a few blocks away. I evenremember that I thought the train ran on the roofs of the houses, up and down, like hills. The sun was setting, andI remember feeling...lonely. I was definitely less than two years old, because we moved out of that apartment before my second birthday.

465 I think the dog-eating joke theme will bring us joy for a long time.

Blonde jokes are still making the rounds and they are decades, if not centuries, old.

The main thing is that the dog eater joke personalizes the Zero and makes it possible to break the artificial reverence granted him by the media. Once that mask falls, it will be easier to make other and more pointed arguments against his policies as he has been stripped of the god-like ivy league intellectual status.

I remember you pitching this idea before and I think it's one hell of a good idea. Maybe you should talk to David Jaffe about it and co-develop a game - it would make you an instant millionaire, .

Honestly, I have no idea what this game is about. It's either a) another prequel game like "Ghost of Sparta", comprised of discarded level designs or b) a follow up to GoW3. After all, Athena is still alive in that universe, although powerless, and she's still pretty pissed off at Kratos.

526 My earliest confirmed memory is of my six-month shots.

For my entire childhood, this short series of tableaux floated around my head like a slide show. The start was an image of a low building surrounded by parking, and the end was me rubbing my rear flank and thinking that the man in the room was a very bad man. This was unconnected to anything, and I had no idea of its significance, or indeed if it had any at all.

So when I was thirteen or so, my Mom and I flew back upstate to our hometown (we'd moved when I was five) to visit my grandparents. While we were there, we took Grandma to a doctor's appointment. As we pulled into the lot, I realized that this was the building in my old mental slide show. I said, "Hey, I recognize this place."

Mom stopped the car right there and looked at me, mouth wide open. After a bit she said, "You haven't even been in this part of town since you were six months old. This is where my obstetrician was!"

So there it is.

...So in this one, does he fight his way out of Hades?

Yes. Hades, voiced well by Clancy Brown, is the 2nd main boss of the game.

My mom's eyes got wide and I continued: "it stops!"

So then we went off to find the store manager together.

I was a little nervous about telling that story, but it is a story of about how God works in a person's life.

I found it interesting that I didn't remember it until Mom stoked the memory. It made her look bad but she didn't care. She *wanted* me to remember it.

544 And my earliest memory was from when I was about 18 months old. My mother had bought a pack of cigars meant for her father. I got the celophane off and pretended to smoke one.

It tasted like a cigar, which is not toa toddler's taste, aparently, but then I remembered that my Pop bit the end off. Maybe the good stuff was inside?

So I bit off the end, and it tasted even worse, and it kind of irritated my little mouth and gums, so I kept biting, looking for the good stuff. I tried and tried, and I think I went through about five of these cigars before my mom found me sitting in a pile of trash and shredded tobacco.

I've smoked ever since.

I have been to Fulton Co Stadium, Turner Field, the Astrodome, wherever the Rangers used to play, Busch Stadium ( hottest place I think I have ever been, toehr than the tarmac at Miramar in August) Anaheim Stadium and Dodger Stadium. I did get to kiss an outside wall of Fenway. (Okay, I kissed my finger, then touched the wall. It smelled too pissy to actually kiss)

Thor and I are going to Dodger Stadium to see the braves Tuesday!! Gotta see Chipper one more time.

You watch, he won't play. Happened to us with Cal Ripken, Jr, at Anaheim stadium. The crowd was PISSED, too. 2 outs, 9th inning, they coulda put his ass in.

My father got caught up in the CB crazy when I was a little kid. Bought a CB
and a CB talking guide. Kept trying to talk to the truckers while the family
was driving down the road on a trip. "How's the weather up there?" "Any
smokies or brown paper wrappers around?" Don't know what was more painful,
hearing him talk on it or the silence afterward. He finally realized he needed
a handle. We discussed it as a family and we all voted on the best name. A
decision was made. Then all the luggage blew off the top of the car.


The luggage was back in place on top of the car. (2nd time) The Red Roostertook
the wheel. As we pulled back onto the highway the CB suddenly came to life.


"That blue stationwagon is never gonna get anywhere if it keeps
droppin' its load!"

My father turned off the CB.

601 I bought a couple of tickets for a game at Fenway about 5 years ago. Sat back off left field in the back. Felt kinda dank and those effin' pillars... Fortunately we had a friend up in a luxury box on the first base side who snuck us up there. Glad I went and the place is full of baseball history, but I've been to better parks (imo). I did dig the Green Monster, and I absolutely LOVE the old school scoreboard along the bottom with the big lights for balls/strikes/outs. That was awesome.

Not to take away from your story though TN. Fenway is pretty cool, and an experience like that with your kid would be amazing in any park.

My very first impression of her was of a very angry, ideologically single-minded (i.e. obsessed) woman.

Coincidentally, that was also my second impression.

The "First Lady" really should not, in theory, be a political target. But this one jumps out in front of traffic.

And the left is dedicated to dragging families into things at the very first opportunity (at least since Reagan, especially since Palin, and now we have attacks on Ann Romney during the campaign). So they can suck eggs.

I remember a fall, I remember a flash from the hallway between the kitchen and back porch and I remember the day we moved to my grandmother's when my parents split. All of those were 3 years of age but I don't know what order they are in so I don't know if any of those flashes might have been before the third birthday of which I only remember seeing the cake on the table.

and the Sweet Ghia reminds me of the start of my dub luv
affair...


----------

My interest in VWs started with an early memory, althought not before I was 4. I was about 5 or so. We lived in Munich (Fort McGraw, which was closed in the first round of BRAC). This would be about '69 or so.

There was an old beetle parked in a parking lot near our building. Black. Split rear window. The glass was all cracked into tiny pieces, although the windows were still holding together somehow. I recall a funny-shaped hole low on the back of the thing that went deep inside the car; looking in there, you could see bits of engine.

Now, of course, I know that funny-shaped hole was for the crank, making the beetle a pre-'49 model.

When I was 10 years old.....

Just before I drifted off to sleep, if I stared hard enough at the multi-paned window across my room, especially on moon-lit nights, the window would begin to shrink backwards. Slowly at first, then picking up speed until I found myself in some type of "Flying" dream with the sound of deep base drums,(which now in hindsight was the beating of my heart). So cool were these events....so very cool! I always had the best sleep when it started out like this...

640 I was born in Midland, Texas, the oil town the elder George Bush traveled to--- penniless except for a knapsack filled with $400,000 in negotiable securities--- in order to make his fortune in the oil bidness.

My earliest memory was of looking out a window at night and seeing a huge flame .

My mother told me we were on a train out of Midland when I was less than two years old, and that we must have passed some oil field where natural gas was being flared off.

Or maybe your dog is really annoying and won't shut up.

You don't need Muslim neighbors for poison attempts on dogs that like to bark all day and night.

This usually happens when the dog owner claims the dog never barks when he's at home...exactly. Its when you leave at 7:00 am on Saturday and your dog starts barking that's annoying.

That's a very good point, so either Obama can deny it and indirectly
confess that his books where ghost-written by Bill Ayers or Obama
really did eat dogs as a kid and he can try to explain that little thing
away.

Posted by: Kratos (Ghost of Sparta) at April 19, 2012 12:58 AM (h/3sQ)======================Obama did the audiotape for that book, did he not? So he read those words out loud into recording equipment. Not only would he have to admit the ghost-writing if he denied the incident happened, he'd be admitting he was happy to repeat the yarn himself.

Going by my own little experiment...I posted some of the jokes on FB, where I have a ton of lib "friends" that I enjoy toying with....the only reaction I got was from my Libtard brother, with the usual scolds (Obama was a kid in a foreign culture, Romney is Clark Griswold, Romney is desperate, etc). Either the rest of the libs are too embarrassed or don't care. Crickets from the non-politcal people.

Believe me, I'm a certified AOS moron who's been making fun of Obama since he was elected. The teflon around the guy is very frustrating. This whole kerfuffle may make us feel good, and it may help to crack the clay feet of Obama. Here's to hoping the damn bursts.

711 @702 - I sort of agree with you, I don't think the dog thing really hurts him. It is legitimate to say "He was just a kid".

The drug house we've been reporting on for 5 month just got the giant SWAT team /batter down the door treatment tonight. I've been in contact with the local police for months and they actually did something tonight.


The enforcement unit was just....so sooo... cool. Ever see the series "The UNIT'?

It was those guys. I'm still swooning.


The entire neighborhood lined the streets and hooted and hollared. Sick to death of Heroin and meth ruling the day. The worst part was the drug addled "father" wasn't feeding his kids. They were going door to door begging for food. And witnessing the heroin den shooting up on school nights. And soiling themselvses because they couldn't get into the bathroom because the junkies be shooting up.


Oh, and the top performing commercial realtor in the city owns the joint. Oh yeah, that little tidbit.

It was a great day. Just a great day.

No disagreement here. I just don't think these fuckers will ever change until they are forced to do so.
In the end, money is just a representation of time. When someone is empowered to spend all of our time before we die (and actually chooses to do so) we become slaves. It is a built-in flaw in our system. I truly fear that the only way we won't end up slaves is if those in power now actually start fearing how we will react to the news. And no, I don't think you are wrong about the aftermath either. We are already boned.

stuck as an impoverished single mom who goes around telling anyone who
will listen that she used to be an immortal with supernatural powers who
was married to a vampire, and have everyone go "Yeah, now take your
meds." She then goes on welfare and eventually gets a job as a manicurist. The

800 Christian and Newsom?

Holy shit, thinking of that case makes me very angry.

Goddamn, that was some sickening shit. As far as the death penalty goes I'm usually the type to say take it or leave it but this case is different. Every single one of those motherfuckers involved needed to die. Every single one of them.

I think just one got the death penalty?

Travesty.

The genius? The guy who made up the test and convinced people that they desperately need to take his test.

819 My earliest memory was more of a fleeting impression of seeing white stuff falling out of the window - snow - while being held. This was in Northern California. When around 6 or 7 I described this to my parents, they checked and the only time it had snowed was about 4 months after I was born. Go figure. Lots of memories from ages 2-3, which included starting nursery school and playing with friends.

820 Science fact: When you get stung 102 times by hornets as a 2-yr-old, you never forget it. I realize this is only an anecdote, but I think it's a bit unethical for scienticians to try to replicate those results.

Anyway, I lived, I'm pretty much immune to stings since then... no other superpowers, though. Guess they weren't radioactive hornets.

821 "Obama was a kid in a foreign culture"

They keep pointing this out and everytime they do I'm thinking this is the buried lede that really seemed to stay buried last election, or lost among risible conspiracy theories that misdirected from plain truth.

He really didn't spend his formative years being raised as an American, did he?

Nope, and to the lefties, that's a feature, not a bug.

The latest argument from the Libs.....Obama ate A dog, not HIS pet. You silly insular wingnut.
This coming from a lib who thinks that House Special Fried Rice is the height of exotic foreign cuisine.

824 I specifically remember lying on a mat staring at several people looking and smiling at me, my family. I turned my head away. The nurse turned my head back. I turned a way again. The nurse turned me round so that I would face my family despite wanting my head in that particular direction. I turned away again anyway. I kept turning away because there a woman in a wig I just didn't like seeing, my grandmother. According to my mother, I was one day old.

825 Looking at the comments at the link, there are a lot of people there wondering at the naming of the "MANAGEMENT" rings...

Someone has a difficult PR road ahead of them with that name... everyone is gong to read "management".

And sorry, when I think "management ring for your guy/fiancee" I think shock collar or something.

This isn't going to be a well received notion.

826 I have a couple of early memories. Before my 2nd birthday, i remember a picnic in the desert and someone pulling potatoes out from under the fire...i thought that was cool. i had my tonsils out just before my 2nd birthday and i remember lots of things about that time. i remember the ether basket being put over my face, i remember the smell of the ether, i remember getting a toy airplane that floated in the bathtub (it was red) and i remember sitting on the edge of the kitchen table and being forced to drink strawberry soda (my favorite) because i wasn't eating or drinking anything due to the throat pain.

827 I vividly remember dropping coke bottles off the back porch onto my father's brand new green 1955 Ford and denting it in three places on the left rear fender. AND the spanking that followed! I was about two years old.

829 I have lots of memories from when I was 2-3. That because we moved about when I was about 3 1/2, so I know that all the memories of our first house are from when I was 2 or 3. When my dad drove with me to college I walked around the outside of that first house in my mind describing the whole thing. He remembered it the same way.

Some things I remember taking place over time at that first house, like the multiple times my dad made bows and arrows for me from the bushes out by the patio. He didn't want to be pestered constantly so he would tell me no, but a few times he indulged me. Definitely that one goes back to when I was two, and I still remember it.

If we hadn't moved I probably wouldn't be able to date any of those memories. I bet a lot of people would be able to remember that far back if they had moved.

830 My earliest memory is from before 16 months, when I belatedly started to walk. I scootched around on my butt instead of crawling, and I have a picture memory of scooching down the hall until I met up with the single step down into the den. Frustration! I also remember pulling the cuckoo clock off the wall when I was two (I was trying to wind it, as I had seen my mother do), and "hiding" under the sofa cushion so that my mother wouldn't find me. (She found me.) I remember clogging the toilet with pine cones when I was three, and being panicked when it overflowed (but I knew better than to hide under a cushion this time). I later had a nightmare about the toilet flooding the house. I also remember being stung by a bee when I was three, and hiding behind the couch in fear when I saw a fire in a pan on the stove, also when I was three(this is how kids die in fires). I remember smashing my finger in the car door when I was four, falling out of the top bunk bed (which was really my older sister's bed) onto my head when I was four, many different Christmas trees in the den, which had a cathedral ceiling (we moved from that house when I was four), and a vivid nightmare when I was four (the pipes under the sink became legs, and the sink tore away from the wall and chased me). I have many, manyvisual memories of the house and yard we lived in until I was four. The specific memories of events are usually related to something that frightened or hurt or upset me.

Earliest memory was my grandmother's funeral when I was two. I have clear snapshots of being in the car on the way to the funeral and of the casket. I know I was two because my brother wasn't born yet. Mom thinks I remember because she was upset and that made it traumatic.
