It's all in the family...

My little brother, while a very sweet twelve-year-old, often has strange understandings of the world. This morning, he asked my dad,
                  
 "When did the Egyptian people die out?"

My dad was obviously very confused and asked for clarification. My brother responds with,

 "You know, those people they drew on hieroglyphics. When did they die out and the new people take over?"

Needless to say, my dad had to give somebody a CliffNotes version of Egyptian art, and why modern Egyptians (or the ancient Egyptians, for that matter) don't look like the crazily symmetrical people he's seen in history book.

Self-Mock:

I often say things without thinking, which results in a lot of mockable sayings. My friends take every opportunity they get to remind me, which brings me to my story.

I was with a bunch of friends, watching all the episodes of Wolf's Rain (nine hours in total, I believe). About three hours in, there was an angsty scene where the protagonist stands alone on a hill top, his hair blown every which way by the wind. This scene was pretty long, and about halfway through it, I sat up and said,

"Hey! How come his hair is moving and his nose isn't?"

To which wereducky responds,

"Oh yes, maranwe89, it woud make so much more sense if his nose was blowing majestically in the wind."
