I had this book when I was a kid called ‘The Scholastic Atlas of the World’. I loved countries and maps learning about the world I live in. In an earlier section there was information on how geologic features are made, among them, karst limestone caves. The book taught me that moving water could cut away and destroy rock, leaving behind hollow space which can collapse. I applied this concept to the ocean, which is always in motion.

it’s a small world and it’s getting smaller

I didn’t know that 2004 and 2005 were flashbacks in BIONICLE and I thought the Turaga just kinda became Toa. I also pronounced Takadox like Tankadox for some reason.

I once saw an airplane with a bunch of flashy lights on it in the night sky. I was convinced it was a UFO :stuck_out_tongue: My mom asked me why I was hiding under the table, and I explained it to her. She laughed at me and asked questions like “Are they gonna abduct us? Are the aliens gonna take you away to the moon?” She wouldn’t hide with me, and I thought the aliens were going to take her. I wasn’t even that sad about it in the moment, I guess I figured it was her fault for not taking alien precautions and hiding and that she was going to pay for it by being abducted.

It was just a plane, though. :stuck_out_tongue:
