    I know I wanted a spaceship at some point because I wanted to visit The Little Prince. Then there was the time I wanted to have lots of adventures a la Jules Verne and Tintin...

    In any case, I don't think I've changed all that much. :P

    Hahahaha... sounds like my childhood on the interwebs as well. I miss AOL. I used to think of the internet as a chessboard. Still is in some ways.

    I remember back when I was about 8-9 years old, I used to be a freak at soccer cards gambling. I don't know the name in English for that game where the objective is turning the card using only the palm of the hand...
    Luckily my school was big, otherwise it would have been hard to find people to play with me.
    I remember having earned 5 complete sets of cards (about 60 cards each) that way hahaha
    The cards were like this:

    I'm not sure if Coca Cola had something like that in US back then(1997)

My ENFJ older brother did very much of this with me, and helped a whole lot in fleshing it all out. They often faced world-shattering crises, and lived in a second universe, (after one got trashed somehow. I played through it, but I don't remember now), called the Biverse. I built them structures and vehicles and weapons out of k'nex. All designed by me or my brother with no help from any corporate instructions.
    Haha beanie babies, those were ridiculous. I collected some too, in hopes of them appreciating. It sounds like you had a cool system going with your brother.

    Ah gambling as a child. I can definitely relate to that. I was really into soccer as well (AC Milan FTW) and had a small collection. Something about cards was definitely fascinating as a kid though...me and friends used to collect car cars and race them

    I spent my childhood on IRC comic chat trading pornography with grown men that I stored on floppy disks. I wasn't even jerking off to the stuff. I just liked to see how much porn I could collect. I guess that's where my archiving/library talent was founded. I used to spend hours searching for and downloading every single user-made comic chat character. I'd always be searching for how to play games and entertain myself. Shockwave was the bomb back in those days. Evil Dave, DC8P and early newgrounds and such. Whenever my friends were over we'd pose as a woman on yahoo chat and get horny old perverts to do ridiculous shit like lick their own elbows and punch themselves in the face because we thought of it as amusing. I soon got into downloading and archiving my favourite tv shows on a 56k connection. Waiting hours to download terrible quality captures in .rm format. Then came Napster & Kazaa. Comic chat was losing its edge and I found out I could not only download and listen to music on my computer, watch my favourite tv shows but also download unlimited pornography. This obviously took the edge off of the magic off of file transfers. I got into emulation, animation, video editing, graphic design, programming, music production and pretty much found out everything a human could possibly do on and with a computer. Not out of boredom but curiosity. It just kept snowballing from there. Going outside to play just didn't compare to the excitement and knowledge I could extract from a machine. Instead of hanging out with 3 friends in real life I could communicate with a thousand friends online. Friends kept inviting me to goof off outside but I was no longer interested in anything but riding the knowledge tube. I did the whole free internet thing aswell. In essence, I turned into the fucking internet. I consider it to be an open ended travel guide to life on earth. The internet is like a diary written by the entire world and to explore it is to learn. You yourself are only one person capable of learning a single quantity of lessons from your own life experience. Where as the internet is a connection to multiple. To me, it's the quickest way you can grow and expand your mind other than sitting in a library all of your life. What holds the internet in higher regard to me than reality is that more people open up behind a screen than they do face to face. It eliminates the time and trust you have to earn for someone to tell you what's really on their mind. I'd dig real life more if people would stop being so sugar coated in it.

    I remember I once had to pay about $1500 in US income tax (I'm not American) as I didn't send in the tax forms in time. That messed up my summer.
    I never got into any sort of real trouble though... Being sent a threatening email to stop using the keyword 'ebay' from lawyers representing Ebay doesn't count.

    My mom tells me I used to play a lot of educational computer games as a toddler and was really good at using our Mac for my own purposes, but I've never been a computer wiz or anything. I taught myself some HTML when I was 9 or 10, but not much else. i spent most of my childhood reading, watching movies and cartoons, reading, and reading some more. :P
