Many of these are still true, esp. when the mind wanders in the car.
  1. Taller
  2. Batman
  3. An astronaut
  4. An archaelogist
  5. Someone who could make things explode with power of his mind

  6. An only child
  7. A neurologist
  8. A writer
  9. A photographer for National Geographic
  10. Back in 2nd grade

  11. A lottery winner
