Sadly children are indeed the future.  Therefore it is incumbent upon us to see to their education.  If we don’t teach them about the seething unknowable horrors that lurk behind the paper thin veneer of reality then they’re going to learn about it on the street.  And that would be irresponsible.

Unfortunately the solar eclipse was not viewable from here in Utah.  So our sanity was not blasted by the horrific truths that it would have revealed.  I’m as disappointed as you are.  Still I felt it was still a teaching moment so this is pretty much word for word the conversation I had with my daughter on the subject.

You know…

Sometimes I worry that I’m warping my child with my own special brand of madness.  And then I think…. Pineapples?  What the hell are a pineapples?
