When i was a little kid my mom would never get them for me, so after years and years of complaining she bought them when I was around 10. Well, I was very excited. She kept telling me to leave them in one place so I don't spill them, so I never moved the jar. But one day the beach boy special of full house was coming on (when they were all at the beach) and I said that the sea monkeys wanted to see the ocean, so I set them on the carpet to watch TV--and consequently they fell over and spilled everywhere
Not one sea monkey was spared, and my mom got the carpet steam cleaned the next day..
I will remember that for the rest of my life. I even made a little cross to put on the spot where the sea monkeys met their ultimate demise
I was a weird kid. lol.
