conversations in my household [Nov. 6th, 2005|03:06 pm]
Beemer
I just wanted to share that we started out talking about the fact that Herodotus is basically just like the elderly relative who doesn't quite get that not everything you hear on the Intarwebs is reliable information, and is constantly forwarding, say, the infamous Neiman-Marcus Cookie Recipe, except that he was the first guy EVER to do that, and we finished with "gravity is caused by ponies! Tiny gravity ponies race to the top of the atmosphere, where they meet up with the lunar gravity ponies from the moon, and they kick you as they go past because you're in the way and slowing them down, man, and that's what causes gravity. The moon ponies are much smaller, and that's why there are tides."

I love my partners. =)

My dad read us Herodotus for bedtime stories.
