    No
    No, but the government would probably bail them out.
    One empty brain.
    .
    Sunlight reaches Earth’s atmosphere and is scattered in all directions by all the gases and particles in the air. Blue light is scattered in all directions by the tiny molecules of air in Earth’s atmosphere. Blue is scattered more than other colors because it travels as shorter, smaller waves. This is why we see a blue sky most of the time.
    Closer to the horizon, the sky fades to a lighter blue or white. The sunlight reaching us from low in the sky has passed through even more air than the sunlight reaching us from overhead. As the sunlight has passed through all this air, the air molecules have scattered and rescattered the blue light many times in many directions. Also, the surface of Earth has reflected and scattered the light. All this scattering mixes the colors together again so we see more white and less blue.

    .
    I think the first ones are easier.

    The best one I heard was, “if the sky was green, you wouldn’t know when to stop mowing the lawn.”

    Naw, the best question is “How did the baby get inside her tummy?” Simpler to answer the questions in the ’toon.

    Humph… and I suppose the next thing you’re going to claim is that rainbows are cause by raindrops scattering the sun’s light?

    Most parents I see don’t even look at their kids. They’re too busy texting. (Sigh…)
