And I'm in!
Large Hadron Rap.

Yesterday's find sparked a memory from my childhood. If you don't visit the link, I shall clue you in: It's a long (long) xmas wish list with a ton of expensive items a girl want for xmas.
As soon as I started asking my parents for stuff instead of Santa, my xmas list ballooned to twice the above linked list's size. I guess I didn't want to burden Santa, but I didn't mind my own parents shouldering the load of my greed.
In 6th grade, I took a look at a friend's xmas list. She came from a very wealthy family, yet her list included only a handful of small things (glycerin soap, for example).
She got everything on her list, plus more surprises she hadn't asked for. I got a couple of things on my list, no surprises, and sighs from my parents that sounded a bit like, "Where did we go wrong?"
The experience taught me a lot.
