    Ain’t that a kick in the head?

  2. Mark Antony says:

    God, Shadowchild reminds me of those kids who walk up to you and keep asking “Why?” to everything you say. The difference being, of course, that Shadowchild isn’t deliberately trying to piss me off.

  3. Trogdog says:

    Why not?

  4. Murasaki says:

    Why what?
    Why not?
    Why for?

  5. Lord the 22nd says:

    Oooooh, the biggest question ever…

  6. Silver Guardian says:

    Mark – Not all of those kids who ask are trying to piss you off, either; some are genuinely curious about different perspectives.

    I know this for a fact because I was one such child, and still carry that curiosity to this day..

    There was an old sci-fi book where a little girl’s parents – a pair of brilliant scientists – dealt with their daughter’s questions by simply answering them, in the fullest detail they could manage bringing their entire arsenal of knowledge and research tools to bear.

    I don’t know how well this would work in the real world – the little girl in question was also a genius – but I’ve always liked the idea.

    (For those interested, the book was “The Ship Who Searched”, #3 in the Brainship series, by Anne McCaffrey & Mercedes Lackey.
