1. WHY DON'T ALL FISH DIE WHEN LIGHTNING HITS THE SEA?
Because the current disipates when its grounded by the sea, the fish are submerged in the sea and thus the circuit isn't complete and they don't get
the shock. If anything had ever come into existence which was killed rhe second lighting hit the sea they would all have died out during the first
lighting storm, duhhh.
2. HOW MUCH DOES THE SKY WEIGH?
Quiet a lot, it exerts a pressure of 1 atmosphere [i would then take them to an internet and look up how much this weight this is equivelent too.
This would tell us how much the sky above us weighed, if he was still interested i would offer to work out the volume of the air around the earth and
its relative density, however in real terms the sky doesn't weigh anything because its the sky duhhhh.
3. WHY CAN'T PEOPLE LEAVE OTHER PEOPLE ALONE?
Because we were once savage apes swinging in the trees, in order to exist we had to evolve, this left us with some complex issues to deal with -
luckly over the last five thousand years we've developed a good understanding of what makes us tick and a good understanding of life, a cool head and
some self respect you can rise above your biology and be more than just a beast on two legs, you my son can be a self-aware being - something surely
worth aspireing too!
4. WHY AREN'T BIRDS ELECTROCUTED ON WIRES?
Because they aren't grounded, if they reached out and touched the floor then they would be.
5. WHAT IS TIME?
Pimms o'clock! It's when one thing happens after another, the best way i can think of it is like a never ending string of snooker balls crashing
into each other, the first one hits the second one hits the third one, etc, etc the pace is constant and the order will always remain the same....
HAHA LIES! That's until you get to university then you'll find out (you are going to university right little 6yo?) that time is a totaly nonsence
consept which only really works because we can't deny that it happens - we don't really know anything about time apart from its nothing like we
thought it was. Sometimes time changes, sometimes it might even stop all together! Maybe it didn't exist for a long time, but then how would you
know how long it didn't exist for? how did it know when the right time to start time was? basically son no one really knows, time is just what the
clock mesures - it's an easy way to organize when to do things, to predict when events will happen (such as dawn) and it's free!
6. WHY IS THE MOON SOMETIMES OUT IN THE DAY, TOO?
Because it takes the moon longer than a day to go round the earth, thus the times of the moons rise and fall change every day.
7. WHY DID GOD LET MY KITTEN DIE?
Because there is no godvor he's a weirdo, things just die - it's part of life, sorry. IF nothing died then the first life forms ever to exist would
still exist, we would never have evolved and no one would be here to feel sorry for dead kittens. It's like the slide a the park, you each line up
and take a turn - if you stayed on it all day then the next guy would never get a turn -thats not fair, especialy if you're the next guy. That's
why we have to make the most of life while we're alive, we only get a brief time better no waste it.
8. WHY DO I LIKE PINK?
Because it's an awesome colour, certain people have suggested that we responded in certain ways to certain colours due to our evolution but really i
think we're above that - our understanding of art and design has hardwired our brains into a more advanced way of understanding images.
9. WHY IS WATER WET?
Because wet is the word used to explain the feeling of water duhhh! it's a fluid, the atoms which make it up are only loosely joined so that rather
than a solid it flows, the same forces apply to all the atoms so it travels together but its easy to seperate groups of water atoms from others - this
is why some bits of you break off and stick to you raher than stay with the rest of the water and why you can put your hand in water and it comes out
10. WHY DOES MY BEST FRIEND HAVE TWO DADS?
Because they're gay duhhh, how old are you again? shesh! Tarquin and Baz are great guys i was round theirs for a beer the other day, apparently they
met at an all nighter in 'nappa - used to be proper party animals when they were young but like everyone they settled down and got a cat, well of
course being liberals they went to the pound and picked up a stray - well that night they were having a romantic night in watching muppets christmas
carrol and oliver twist while strokeing their new adorable little cat - tarq said he was watching the poor little orphan boys when he had an idea!
That night they went out and stole a baby from a stroller in the shopping center, that kid was eaten in a freak zoo accident so they grabbed brad outa
the maternity ward as they left.
Haha, ok so i might not say 'like duhhhh' to my kid all the time, and the anser to question 10 is a protest answer lol because it's a stupid
question! How do i know why he has two dads, it could be because his mom died and his brother helps bring up his son or because he's gay which
doesn't really do anything to what i say to my kids, some gay people are idiots, crooks and criminals - some are salt of the earth fellas, i
wouldn't be telling my son anything unless i knew the facts - lets just say whatever i say its gonna be pretty liberal and yes i would probably let
him sleep over if i trusted them.
hehe oh and, i loled hard @ 6. That's no moon, that's a space station.
oh, oh and edit to add - Did i WIN?!? Do i get my licence to have a child now nanny state orwellian government?!? promsise i will answer all his
questions with doubleplus goodthink answers!
