I used to go to that museum all the time when I was younger.
I don't know, I may have, but just didn't know the story behind it. Next time I go I will look for it.

did he get money for it?
I don't actually know, and I don't have the energy to search for the answer right now.
A trip to new mexico? so some one did believe him didn't they! wow that some long trip i wonder how anyone could just afford to fly there to have it checked? and what became of this 3 year old?! did he get rich?! did he get sold in the blackmarkets of new mexico?!
I imagine he probably was from New Mexico.
If ya feel like citchating ya know ia m on aim right now hehe
and hmm yeah i think kids know a lot more now a days then i was a small kid all i knew how to do was play videogames
I'm gonna go to bed as soon as I'm finished watching this movie.
K and what movie?
is it Treasure Planet?
lol. No. It's Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood.
OH that was on yesterday but ghost world was on at the same time so ooo ghost world won =p
I love that movie. And it's not often that I admit to liking a "chick flick."
Me too. I'm surprised I didn't cry this time around.
I absolutely love Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood. Not the depressing flashbacks, but the funny parts, like when sandra bullock was slamming the phone on the counter. :) my family doesn't get why i like this movie.
Just watch, I bet he was one of my friends from school.
Ha ha! I guess kids really do say the darnedest things.
Kids know sooo much more then adults give them credit for.
That is so true. Especially kids nowadays. Jeez, some of them know more than I do, you know what I mean?
I most certainly do. My little 6 year old cousin used the word surly correctly in a sentence this afternoon. WTF?
I think a lot of that stems from the fact that kids also 'know' a lot of things that aren't true. I think this is caused by two things. First, adults fill children with lots of fallacies (santa claus, easter bunny, the stork delivering babies, and more). I can't figure out reasons for this other than people finding ignorance and naivete cute (youth obsessed culture strikes again). The second reason is less sinister, but harder to deal with.
Young children believe adults to be infallible. Later (5 or 6 years old?) this shrinks down to certain adults (parents, teachers, a few others). Later, no one is held up as infallible. This begins rebellion (this is also the reason why I think that as soon as someone starts questioning the rules it's time to tell them why they exist ("because I said so" doesn't count)).
Well, that got off-topic. I hope you can decipher my nested parenthetical statements.
I most certainly want my child to believe in Santa Claus. It's important for children to have that bit of make believe and fantasy, it's all about the innocence of child hood. I've had an awful day so I'm not explaining this well at all, but my beliefs on this particular subject are in a backentry.
When I was little, I wanted to be an archaeologist. I am still very interested in dinosaurs- I read Jurassic Park, saw the movies, and played the videogames! :D
haha i wanted to be one too when i was little
i had the dinosaur comforter and the whole bit
needless to say, dinosaurs are still awesome
"Jurassic Park" was single-handedly responsible for my continuing obsession with paleontology.
