OT, Most of the times I see an obvious typo, I ignore it. If the error or errors make it difficult to make sense of a post, I may well discount the post or, if it realy irks me, post a correction.
But Pico 1180,
"never delay the inedible"
is sheer genius.
Lewis Carroll couldn't have said it better, Spike Milligan would have been proud. Sir I salute you.
Further to what ddrueding and pico just posted,
In order to mature into a well balanced, happy and productive member of society*, I reckon its absolutely essential to make mistakes and bad choices as a child. Otherwise what experience would one have of dealing with and recovering from the consequences of those errors?
* If there must be “a point” to childhood then this is surely it. I must admit I hate the Idea of childhood having a point, its so bloody unromantic.
Mind you, that probably just means I don’t know enough about human development, seeing as how, back when I was studying physics the second most common question I was asked when people found out was “don’t you find the world a far dryer, duller place if when you look at a rainbow all you see is the scattering of light through a bunch of water vapour?”, to which my answer was always “Its even more beautiful when you understand a little more about what’s going on”. By the same token I guess that if I really understood people then finding a point to childhood would, for me, be an exhilarating discovery.
