I find many adults are put off when young children pose scientific questions. Why is the Moon round? the children ask. Why is grass green? What is a dream? How deep can you dig a hole? When is the world’s birthday? Why do we have toes? Too many teachers and parents answer with irritation or ridicule, or quickly move on to something else: ‘What did you expect the Moon to be, square?’ Children soon recognize that somehow this kind of question annoys the grown-ups. A few more experiences like it, and another child has been lost to science. Why adults should pretend to omniscience before 6-year-olds, I can’t for the life of me understand. What’s wrong with admitting that we don’t know something? Is our self-esteem so fragile?
My feelings about cats
|Me:||*waiting for my iced coffee. My drink finally comes out. A dude who just ordered comes up next to me. I grab my straw.*|
|Dude:||I think that's mine|
|Me:||*turns cup and points to name* I'm "Evon."|
|Dude:||I still think that's my drink|
|Me:||*screams internally. Puts straw in drink and sips. Maintains eye contact*|
I was a person of color in a workshop whose theory of reality did not include my most fundamental experiences as a person of color—that did not in other words include me.
Everyone is making fun of Drake for these photos, but honestly I’d act like this if I had courtside tickets to a D-League game.
