Skunkgal - Too Much Skunk In Your Junk

things i was into when i was a kid

i’ve found myself needing to justifying knowing obscure bits of trivia recently, and i usually explain my vast expanse of useless knowledge by saying something along the lines of “well, i only know that b/c i was obsessed with it when i was like, 8.”

what i’m starting to realize is that qualification is almost meaningless b/c i was “obsessed” with a TON of things when i was young. below i list a number of topics i spent at least 1 week in deep immersion (where i read and thought of nothing else), all mostly before middle school.

rocks (3 types)
plate tectonics/ring of fire/earthquakes/volcanoes
henry VIII (and wives)
elizabeth I
space (particularly, deep space, phasars, quasars, saturn/jupiter’s moons, comets)
clouds (3 types, again!)
hurricanes
tornadoes
atoms
supermodels
ancient rome
greek mythology
serial killers
particularly, jack the ripper
fossils

    If you are looking for kids game software then educational value, lasting appeal and value for money are probably high on your list of prerequisites. Before you buy be sure to think of what your kids will like too. High on their agenda will be great graphics, friendly characters and loads of fun ofcourse!
