Bedtime chats

7:50: Ugh, Katie came downstairs unable to sleep and Rob started explaining his BIO 151 lecture to her (Chemistry) which led to electrons which led to the speed of light and the circumference of the Earth and the distance to the sun and ratios and how to multiply by 10's and 100's by adding 0's and now they're watching the beginning of Star Trek on youtube to demonstrate light speed. Typical Sunday night here. 

 7:51: ok, now we're on the history of science fiction and literature. And Katie just brought up pirates so you know this is about to turn into a discussion of ships and captains. 

 7:55: Ah, there it is: Ocean ship captions vs space ship captains. And now onto "science fiction" vs "fantasy" (i.e. trek v. wars) and learning shows and a sidetrack that I am certain will end in Bill Nye. 

7:56 Nope, Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego. Didn't see that one coming. Nice one, Rob.
