I have been inspired from BBC's Child of our Time and chatting with work buddies about childhood to come up with a new game.  Every day (or when the thread as been dead for a few hours) a question is asked for everyone who wants to take part to answer.  Examples of these questions could be "How old were you when ....you first rode a bike, or when you had your first girl/boy friend, or first time you got drunk etc etc.  

Not sure how it will take off but I thought it might be interesting, I'll start ...

Topic has been expanded to "first" questions such as "who was your first kiss" or "what was your first car" and so on.

Do you think its better to do it as a answer one, then ask one?  I thought about this but I didn't know which was best.  I thought it would be interesting comparing peoples answers.

How old were you when you first flew on a plane?


i was about 4 when i flew to mallorca
and then the year after i flew to australia. that was a loooooooooooong flight for a 5 year old.


How old were you when you started finding the opposite sex attractive?


although i shouldn't answer this question on the fact that it is based on the heteronormativity of society and that is something that i am fundamentally against (even though i belong to the hereosexual norm) i think i was about ... 5 when i had my first boyfriend. Ahhh Peter Preston. He kissed me in the line for assembly, which was nice lol.
I think attraction of a sexual nature probably happened when I was about 11ish or so. I think younger than that its hard to have an attraction that can be determined as being sexual.

(even though this might not be the way this thread is being run)

Surely that's extreme. I think it's just used to say something in different words. When you'd ask: 'When did you start finding *someone* attractive', it sounds very bad.

i dont think its extreme but then again iv just spent the past 3 hours writing an essay on how bad the heteronormativity of society is so you could say im a little one track minded atm  unsure I think 'when did you start finding people sexually attractive' sounds fine myself. But like i said, ive spent the day correcting heterosexual norms lol
imma geek  shades
plus it wasn't meant in a having a go way lol

17.

I'm not going to ask another question, because I actually like Amy's suggestion of people answering the same question.

so....... question of the day perhaps?

Thursday 8th May: How old were you when you first flew on a plane?

Then, whoever answers around midnight, or first person to post after midnight of the next day posts the next question. Can use something already used because only one person has answered it. Smile I think this would be much more interesting.
