    Back when Power Rangers became Power Rangers Zeo, I would often say "There's no such thing as Power Rangers... There's Power Rangers Zeo!" Of course, not counting the brief Alien Rangers series this was the first Power Rangers show to have a new format and costumes and such.

    I can't tell you how many times I've had to tell my grandmother what something is called. She even gets one word names wrong. For a while she kept insisting blogs where called blobs.

    It also took me forever to teacher her that when you use the internet, you "go online" not "go on the line"

    Kind of like someone I know can't make up her mind whether or not they're pronounced "vlogs" or "vee-logs".

    I still have no idea if "pwned" is pronounced "pawned" or liked "owned" with a p at the start. I've heard it said both ways by various people :p

    When I got babysat by my grandparents. They didn't have any dolls for me to play with. They had this shoebox filled with crayons and I use to play school with them. Some crayons were teachers. While others were students. I use to roll the students crayons over the floor when I was pretending that they were riding a bus.

    I've always pronounced it "pawned", but now that you've brought it up, I'm wondering if mayhbe it IS "owned", but some made the most epic fail typo in history by accidentally typing it with a P instead of an O, and it caught on.

    Like nobody knows EXACTLY how to pronounce "meme", though the most common accepted pronunciation is "meem".

    Not even Know Your Meme has a straightforward answer.

    Jack Black says p-owned. And everyone knows Jack Black is the person you go to for video game and music culture :p

    Speaking of memes and not knowing exactly how they're supposed to be said and whatnot, I'm a little confused as to what exactly the male equivilant of a Mary Sue is supposed to be... some say it's "Gary Stu", some say "Marty Stu"... which is it?

    Know Your Meme says both are correct :p

    I used to do the teacher/school thing with the canned goods (veggies, etc.) that my dad brought home from the store. I'd sit on the kitchen floor and the biggest can (sweet potatoes, it was, one time) was the teacher, leading the rest of the can students onto the bus.

    My mom always made me ask my dad permission first when I wanted to "play cans".

    I also did something similar to that once or twice...I don't know why, I guess I was bored with my actual toys, so I took some cans from the kitchen, brought them into the living room and just played with them...

    I used to like to play grocery store with the cans and boxes from the pantry when I was little. I would make my mother "buy" stuff until she had to cook with it, haha.

    Reminds me, I used to play store with my dad a lot. We would gather all kinds of items from around the house and put them on display in our living room, and then we would take turns walking in and pretending to be a customer...the pain of course, was cleaning up...

    When I was a kid, I used to think the phrase "suit yourself" was "shoot yourself." ._.;

    When I was like two and three, I actually thought a secret was something you were SUPPOSED to share with other people.

    When I was about 4, and we were staying at my maternal grandparents' house, my mom was helping my grandma make dinner (spaghetti, I believe) and she was working with some raw ground beef on the cutting board. Now, far cry from my being an animal rights vegan chick now, I love my mom's meat sauce as a kid. So I picked a piece of raw meat off of the cutting board and, well, three guesses as to what I did with it...

    When I was in elementary school I used to think a lot of things...
    Like for one, I used to think that I was a cartoon character and used to go around telling everyone about me being a cartoon and such.
    I also thought I was a famous baseball player, a fighter pilot in WWII, a famous actor, a famous musician and a video game character.
    But, I've grown out of that phase now....It stinks to get older.
