I think the same thing. Also the ones where a 3rd grade student stupefies a professor about the existence of/nonexistence of God and leaves the professor speechless with kindergarten logic.

Actually, as much as it may seem otherwise, child logic is usually very witty and has some very good reasoning attached to it. The reason why is because they don't make common associations of things until they're teenagers, so everything in front of them just seems very simple so they make connections that way. Perfect example: (and this is a true story told by a presenter on the topic of education) in a classroom, his daughter was drawing. The teacher came up and asked what she was drawing and the girl replied "I'm drawing a picture of god", the teacher said "But nobody knows what god looks like", to which the child replied "They will in a minute".

See, to us, it seems VERY impressive and witty, because we would have to think for a while to come up with such a retort, as we usually look for things on a deeper meaning; but children only see things as they are, which is exactly why they don't find their own 'wit' witty, because to them it's just obvious

I see you like to quote TED talks without proper citation. Do not worry, friend, I have you covered.

Thank you, that is exactly what I am talking about and I'm sure you are, in fact, too sexy for me

Yeah, but often kids don't have anywhere near the language skills required to use their wit and logic. Though I'm sure there are some cases, such as the example you gave, where they do. Also the kid in the post made a very mature sexual joke, which makes me call bullshit.

The thing people fail to notice (while they're being impressed by a child's logic) is that it's not very impressive at all. The child might have said something clever but they don't understand exactly how clever what they said really was. The reason an adult wouldn't answer "They will in a minute" when asked "how could you be drawing a picture of God when no one knows what He looks like?" is because that is a very stupid answer. Adults know that the picture you are drawing is merely your interpretation of God and not His actual form.

In the case where the 3rd grade student "stupefies" a professor about the existence/nonexistence of God is just simply bullshit. Not only does his logic not make sense, but the professor's reaction to it is just unrealistic. It's obviously a story made up by someone to start a religious circle jerk.

I had 5-2 as a math problem in my college algebra class, first day and going over refreshers on integers and so on, but still.

Yes, I love the 3D, especially with all of the headaches that I get from using it. The 3D on the 3DS isn't very good, and it causes me to get massive headaches and migraines, so it isn't fun to use.

I don't like the 3D for playing games, but it is quite nice to have during cut scenes. Also Super Mario 3D Land is a really good game, and you need the 3D for that.
