Science Is Dead

| Learning | February 5, 2015

(I am twelve. Our teacher is teaching us about living things. There is a student in our class who gets sent to the office almost every week.)

Science Teacher: “So, a characteristic of a living thing is that it grows and develops.”

Student: “But a goldfish doesn’t grow!”

Teacher: “Yes. Yes, they do.”

Classmate: “Did you think they just popped into existence?”

Student: “Uh, but when you’re dead you don’t grow! BOOM!”

(He sits back looking incredibly smug.)

Teacher: *face meets desk*
