The Emerging Cosmology of Oskar Hansen, Age 5

Last week Oskar was looking at Google Earth and asking “where’s the other planets?”

Me: “They only have Earth. That’s the only one they have mapped.”

Oskar: “But where’s the aliens?”

Just now:

Oskar: “Dad, where are we, are we inside the moon?”

Me: “No, we’re on the earth.”

Oskar: “You mean inside it?”

Me: “No, we’re not inside it, we’re on the outside, on top of it.”

“No, we’re INside it. You’re lying, dad. You’re not telling the truth.”

“I’m wrecking the whole world!”

Little girl in the park is ripping up grass & throwing it up in the air.

Me: “Why is it raining grass, what’s going on?”

“I don’t know! I’m wrecking the whole world!”
