My dad: How did you happen to know < the contact info for a local business > ?

Meg: Google. Isn’t that the way we know everything?

My dad: Socrates would hate hearing that.

    Did he? Did he really say that? Why can’t I be a part of a family that says things like that?

    My dad would like you to know that he actually said Aristotle and not Socrates. 🙂

    The Socratic method is the shortest possible path between intelligent discourse and a pissed off boy/girlfriend.

    Short of, maybe, answering every inquiry with “eff you, that’s why.”

    HAHA. Oh Google, the reason why I don’t need to know anything anymore.

    @ Thanatos : haha nice definition.

  5. Meg says:

    @ Thanatos Haha! Poor girlfriend!

    I thought endless questioning is the special domain of little kids, but “Eff off, that’s why” is an even worse answer to little parrots.

    On second thought… should have I said “poor girlfriend” or “poor you”?!?!
