I spent my childhood in Florida and one of my greatest delights was 
to follow behind the mosquito spray trucks and get soaked with
what we didn't realize at the time was probably DDT or something
equally as toxic.  I did this almost daily.  Also during this time
we were given the coolest necklaces to wear in kindergarten.  It 
wasn't until I was much older that I realized that they were 
DOG TAGS! Made so that if the Cubans did blow us up we'd still be
identifiable.
