These have all come up over the last week - I am amazed at what I don't know! Can you help?
1. Once the egg is fertilized, what makes the bones start to form? How does just a tiny egg and sperm suddenly grow a skull? (Who knew I'd be more comfortable with the sex talk than the science part?)
2. Why is it, if humans from the same family have a child there are risks of mental degradation but with horses, they're thoroughbreds? (or in the child's terms, with humans it's bad, but with horses it's good?) Why doesn't it cause problems with the horses brains?
3. In evolution, what is the point of the moody adolescence? (That's my question, obviously, but figured I'd chuck it in there).
4. Does a blind person need to blink? (My question, does a person with a glass eye or no eye need to blink?)
5. Why is the rude finger rude? (I would also ask why are swear words considered bad - I understand the biblical ones like damn but what makes certain words for body parts or functions worse than others?)
6. When a baby is just born, does it know who it's dad is? (I wonder if it even knows it's mum?)
7. Does anyone really expect Beyoncé to be airbrushed in real life? (That's obviously my question - and I'll add I thought she looked great anyway, so I really don't get that was a story at all).
8. . Why are fat cells different to normal cells, or do just all cells get fat?
9. Is DNA what makes something a living thing?
10. Did you know the Devil spelt backwards is LIVED? This was pointed out to me by my 6 year old who misread a scripture find-a-word. There has to be a story in that! (I know that's not a question but it blew my mind)
Do you have the answer to these questions? Do your kids ask you questions you can't answer on a regular basis?
