Maybe you need luck subby. But I'm the Batman, and that's all I ever wanted to be.

Somehow, I don't think I'm going to become a starship captain in my lifetime.

I wanted to be a mermaid. . . So unlikely.

Although my odds of experiencing a supervolcano is 1 in 10,000 . . .

Seeing as the Red Sox seems to be doing pretty well in the "out of shape, bearded first baseman who's not hitting great and takes 15 seconds to run from home to first" department, I think four other people's chances just got a little better.

I wanted to be a princess...then an actress...then a stripper.

Yeah. So much for that dream.

Hell I'd settle for a job with health insurance at this point.

I've already seen a woman naked. It was all downhill from there.

When I was very young, I wanted to be a cat.


I don't think that is going to happen.

I still haven't been appointed God yet. On the other hand, my desire to be a creative professional of some sort has come more-or-less* true.

*I'm barely making a living at this, but I do have a small and dedicated fan base. And I get to travel to cool places and visit a lot of museums. Whoo, hoo!

if you ask me, 1 in 5 is pretty good odds.

It's a little late in my life to become a famous author, screenwriter, actor, and director...

/also, the ugliness and the adult ADD probably wouldn't help the situation...

If you achieved all you dreamed for as a child, you didn't dream very big.

I still don't rule the world.....yet.

I'm still holding onto the dream, but as I approach 40 it's looking less and less likely that a profitable career as world-dominating supervillain is in the making.

But fingers are still crossed.

I had no idea that so many astronaut, football playing, superstar, millionaire, presidents existed in the world much less Britain.

I wanted to be a novelist.

Still do, and maybe I'll manage to make it happen.

I had a brilliant future behind me

Well considering my childhood dreams were to be an international rock star or a space ship fighter pilot I'm going to go with NOT feeling lucky.

I still want to be a cat, specifically MY cat.

I wanted to be an F1 driver, a virtuoso guitarist, or see Cindy the Babysitter naked, a jet pilot, or a professional polar bear scientist.

I had 100% chance at success and Cindy wasn't even that hot.

/sigh... zip

Looks like I'll never be a Hollywood stuntman, major league umpire or a professional poker player. Better stick to the day job.

No you can't. The library of congress won't check out books, it's entirely a reference library. And, sorry to say, they may not have your book. They don't actually keep them all, though they do catalog everything.

\Dream crushed.

Helicopter pilot: SAR, medevac, general transport, I wouldn't care as long as I got to fly and help people out.
C-17 pilot a close second

I have always wanted to go into space. Maybe I will win the lotto and buy a ticket one day.
 
2012-06-22 01:20:11 AM
I was hoping to be an astronaut as a kid. Nope. I am in politics (on a low level) though, so a step towards the "Be President" dream many other kids had.
 
2012-06-22 01:20:34 AM
So I can be an astronaut and then become a fireman and marry Anne Margaret and have an orgy with her, Sophia Loren and Barbie Benton?

Not sure if I want to do either one now. lol

Childhood dream: to reach adulthood. Fark you, Daily Mail! I'm living the dream. And I had no idea it would be so horrible.

Bullshiat. You've got a 1 in 1 chance of achieving your childhood dreams if they're not unreasonable. Anyone who says otherwise isn't trying hard enough.

Who was your astronaut hero?

Neeps: I wanted to be a novelist.

Still do, and maybe I'll manage to make it happen.


i did it you can too. the secret to success is sitting your arse firmly in front of the keyboard and staying there.

--- i don't believe the 1 in 5. you're lucky if a handful of students in each graduating class really has a burning fire of what they want to do. lifes taught me most people never find that elusive something that inspires them to focus and achieve.

the only thing that ever struck me deeply was when i was very young. there were jockeys of legend back then, they got great press in the day. i was a kid and i saw the jockeys size and it blew my mind there was something i could do (so i thought). age and growth put the kibosh on that pipe dream.

Well, I got to be a professional artist, which is what I wanted. Now I just need to become a world-famous, influential, beloved-and-reviled professional artist.

My childhood dream was to get to decide who lives and dies.

When it comes true, the world will be a much, much, much less crowded place.

From my experience, the best way to attain your dream is to have a dream that's different from anybody else's. If your dream is to be an NFL player or astronaut, the competition is FIERCE for the 10% or so of you with that dream who actually take a whack at attaining it. Something like one astronaut or NFL draft pick per thousand or million applicants.

I'm the world's greatest expert in my genre of art for the simple fact that I invented my own genre of art. I'd hate to be a painter finding myself in competition with not only the thousands of living professional painters out there, but being compared to Renoir, Michelangelo, and Parrish as well. Creativity might not matter much in a high-school art contest (being a human Xerox rules in that environment), but in the real world, originality is what separates the Dalís from the duffers...

I finally farked my childhood crush. Then I left town and moved to the state I've wanted to live in since I was eight.

also,

1-not signing onto internet
2-no computer games
3-enjoy being poor. you really don't need milk and butter to make mac'n'cheese. no, you really don't.
4-loneliness and solitude are your friends and constant companions.
