Then again, I knew a girl in fourth grade who thought she was a purple horse, so maybe I just hung out with retards.
That's been noted about reincarnation. People always think that they're reincarnated from Napoleon or Cleopatra when they probably reincarnated from some slub in New Jersey.

And wow...she honestly thought that? How old was she at this time? If it was later than elementary school, I'm concerned.

My paternal family line starts in Canada as two brothers fled murder charges in the mid 1700's and assumed new surnames. Funny story, in the late 1800's one of my ancestors was chief of police in some Quebec city.

The Éponine? Oh, that was back in those dark days of the late 90s when Les Mis was what "Twilight" is now.

I know of only one person out of probably 300-400 Éponine-wannabes that I heard who was actually qualified to sing it, and she did it professionally.

I didn't get along well with the other people in my various performing-arts programs. I'm glad I didn't continue in that vein because I probably would have strangled someone.

Oh, I see.

You were in performing art programs though? Sweet! I LOVED performing whenever I got the chance. What did you do? Singing, dancing?

Oh, and I've never actually traced my family tree, but apparently my name's German for "East Field", so popular speculation is that my ancestors were Germanic serfs or something.

Yes, I did all of that, but my health shit out on me so that went the way of everything else.

I went to school to be one of those physicians who tours with ballets and such. Didn't work out.

I'm related to the explorer, Dr Livingstone. Saw his statue in the town of Livingstone and it felt kinda weird.

I had a neurologist named Dr. Livingston once and you'd be surprised how unfunny they find that.

My aunt (not blood related) traced her family tree back to Priscilla and John Alden of Mayflower fame.

FWIW.

One of the strangest family trees I've personally seen was the one that dealt with the relationships between the Biblical patriarchs and matriarchs and their various family members. I was researching them for my Comparative Religion class and my mom walked in as I put a chart of the family tree on a slide. The conversation went something like this:

Mom: What's that?
Me: Oh, I'm doing a report on the Patriarchs and Matriarchs. This shows who they all married.
Mom (examining the chart): Did that one marry her uncle?
Me: Looks like it. Do you see Jacob down there?
Mom: Yeah.
Me: He had two wives. Each wife also gave him their maids to give him more heirs, so he had four women.
Mom (looking closer at the chart): Holy s#it, the maids were his wives' half sisters!
Me (looking closer): Wow, you're right!
Mom: This reminds me of that song "I Am My Own Grandpa"

I'm sure there are stranger family trees, but it was pretty funny when I looked closer at it.
