As far as I know I didn't suck my thumb, this is just a candid in the city.

I couldn't carry out my earliest memory, because it involved a headless chicken, and I don't know anyone who has chooks in their backyard. This is what happened. I remember my dad chopped our chickens head off so we could eat it for dinner, and it ran around like it does without a head for a few mins, and I was teriffied, I was about 2, and believe me it freaked me out, I think I had nightmares for weeks afterwards, I highly recommend not ever doing that to a child - period!!!

So I wasn't expecting this to do well, it's been sitting on around 6.06 all week, with NO comments, then all of a sudden in the dying hrs it's climbed to 6.18 and with 6 comments, very strange.

And what's even stranger is no scores under 5, I don't think that's ever happened before in the history of me being here, ha!

They seem to be twins - their expressions are priceless.

I have the memory of the headless chicken also. Even worse, of a slaughtering of a pig in the countryside. Now we don't witness these moments because the animals are killed in a technical, even worse way.

But it could be kind of fascinating in a creepy way...

Congrats on the TT!
