    Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and
    said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She
    placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but
    I had to tell someone!
