  3. I don't know Wayne Szalinski personally so I'll just have to take your word for it.

    Now that I've Googled it, don't you mean his kids?

    1. Well, in the classic film it was the kids. But in the straight to video third film, it was Wayne himself.

  4. Bacteria is listed twice. You could always replace one with a thumbtack. Not literally, of course. Don't try to stick a thumbtack into your screen. It won't end well. Trust me.

      Oops, I stopped reading after the second sentence.

  7. Did you ever turn your bike upside down as a kid and turn the wheel really fast as you held the little green army men against it? So satisfying to watch them melt. One of the little things we so enjoyed as kids... yes, we were kind of warped.

    1. I never tried that. But I will tomorrow. With my wife's bike. And my green army men.

  8. Definitely a lot of little things there. What about a pint of beer? It's little. Well compared to those big mugs you get in Germany. OK, ok... I see... technicality.

    1. No, P.J. you have something there. Why else would I drink three or four pints in one sitting if they weren't little? Excellent point.

    1. Trust me. It was much bigger. This is the little part.

  12. You threw me off with pumpkin seeds. I saw "pumpkin", and I thought to myself, "Ah ha! There's the fatal flaw of the list!" And then I completed the thought by reading the second word, "seeds". Well played. Your list of small things seems pretty complete.
