Little Girl on a Plane

A stranger was seated next to a little girl on the airplane. The stranger turned to the little girl and said, "let's talk. I have heard that flights go faster if you strike up a conversation with your fellow passengers."

The little girl, who had just opened her book, closed it slowly and said to the stranger, "What do you want to talk about?"

"Oh, I don't know," said the stranger. "How about nuclear power?" and he smiles.

"OK," she said. "That could be an interesting topic."

But let me ask you a question first," she said.

"A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat the same stuff, grass. Yet, a dear excretes little pellets, a cow excretes flat patties, and a horse produces clumps of dried grass. Why do yo suppose that is?"

The stranger visibly surprised by the little girl's intelligence, thinks about it for a moment and says, "hmmmm, I have no idea!"

To which the little girl replies, "do you really feel qualified to discuss nuclear power when you clearly do not know shit?"

Oh shit...it looks trivial for many but the girl de-trivialises it! Brilliant!

Hi Rob, you don't have any relatives or friends affected by the bushfire, do you?

I don't believe you! My guess is that you were :D

Will is doing fine. Learning the art of parental manipulation (crying at the right moments to ensure that his parents buckle to his every demand).

Yep, the frequency of posts is becoming a little embarrassing.

Tere...

Never mess with kids as they are always smarter than we adults give them credit for.

Very funny indeed. The face of the fella would probably be one of those Mastercard moments, priceless.

Nope, not that I know of. My immediate family and the majority of my friends are in and around Sydney.
