[color=#000000ost_uid0]This is how it works, every day i propose a question, such as the one below this paragraph, and anyone who wants can answer, discuss other peoples answers, whatever.

First Question:

What is your earliest memory?

Mine was when my little brother was born (when I was 2 and a half). I remember visiting my mom in the hospitable and walking through the hallways.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000:post_uid0]I vaguely remember being in the front room of the house we lived in before we moved to where we now live. I couldn't have been more than five. There was a couch by the doorway. To the left of the doorway was where the television was situated. It was up high (probably so little fingers couldn't reach it) and on top was this bar with the first 30 or more whole numbers on it. The number for whatever channel you were watching would be lit up if the TV were on.

Also I remember our backyard a little. There was a birdbath of some sort in the middleish of the yard (I think) and we had one of those concrete donkey-pulling-a-carts farther back. And we had a nice neighbor lady.

I guess the first actual [i:post_uid0]event[/i:post_uid0] I remember is the day we moved. I remember standing by the truck and watching everyone take stuff up the ramp and then going back for more. Then that night I was lying in bed in my new bedroom, unsure whether this was permanent or just a one-day trial to see whether we liked the new house. I was staring up at the ceiling and thinking how strange and different this all was compared to sleeping in my old room (yet I can't remember a thing about the inside of that old house other than that front room!).[/color:post_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]My earliest memory is standing next to a small table we still have in our living room (which is now about four meters to the side, but that's besides the point). Since it was about neck-height to me, I must've been very small then. Anyway, I then walked to my parents squatting a few metres away (I don't recall if I made it)[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]My first memory is my dad teaching me to ride a bike. There was an iron pole on the back of the bike, where he held it. When I got off the bike about a hundred metres further, I looked back and he was still standing next to the house.
I was about four.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]I remember hugging a complete stranger when i was about four. We were in a crowded bar and the guy was wearing the same shirt as my dad. I was so short i couldn't really see his face. I remember the guy's friends saying "Looks like you've got a new girlfriend!"
That's my first memory and also one of my most embarassing.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]My first memory is being about two or three and reaching for a brightly colored glass on a cabinet and then breaking it. Although this memory is pretty much fragmented, no pun intended.

The first [iost_uid0]clear[/iost_uid0] memory I have is of picking up a dead lizard and going to my mom while she was washing the clothes and tapping her on the back to show her the lizard. She screamed when she turned around and saw the lizard in her face, and I laughed because I was so amused by her reaction.

See, I was evil even at a tender young age. Muaa ha ha ha ha. Â [/colorost_uid0]

I had a friend who could do that. I couldn't do it, our other friends couldn't do that. When she did it, we'd all giggle and point. "You're doing it again!"

I can roll my tongue. I'm not [iost_uid0]proud[/iost_uid0] of it or anything, but I can do it. And I have a hitchhiker's thumb, while we're on the subject.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]I can raise each eyebrow separately. I've been practising dancing the lambada with my eyebrows, like Jim Carrey in "Me Myself and Irene". Not very good at it yet, but getting there.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]How do you .... wiggle your eyes? In and out? Up and down? Does the whole eyeball move?


A disturbing thought either way.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]I can do the Spock-eyebrow thing, but only the left one -- not ambidextrous.

I can roll my tongue, but I can also make it do this. Can't explain [iost_uid0]how[/iost_uid0], exactly.[/colorost_uid0]
