I brutally murdered my oppressors for the first time when I was nine years old. Like jsharr, I now try to do so on a daily basis.

It's getting tough to find oppressors to kill. Sometimes I just have to assume that they are the oppressing type, and that I have to strike pre-emptively.

Composed my first symphony? Nine years old. Child prodigy. Not much since then. It sucks to have peaked at nine.

Not until I was 15, when I got my learner's permit. Unless you count a tractor, which I don't.

The first time I couldn't really get the hang of it. Especially with everybody watching and cheering.
I started going a little faster and my Dad kept pushing me in the back and screaming, keep going.
After that it's all just a blur, especially hitting the curb and falling over.
