    Eddie learned a very important lesson that day. Facts from dad must be filtered first by the BS-ometer.

    Oh dear. I do hope this report won’t go on his permanent record.

    So why does the air go woobidy, woobidy, woobidy when you roll a car window down?

    Don’t feel too bad Eddie


    I’ve had teenagers and adults believing some pretty crazy stuff, just because it sounded logical or technical enough and I said it in a confidant and authoritative manner

    I once knew a woman who really believed that a Dragonfly would sew parts of your body together! No matter what we tried to explain to her, she still believed that she was right. In fact, the dragonflies do not bother people at all, They eat mosquitoes. Very helpful!

    Once when I was wiring an old coax cable network, where you have to put data plugs on the final T fitting. The secretary was watching me and asked me what the plug was for. I told her that if you didn’t put that in, the bits would dribble out on to the desk and that she should check it every so often to make sure it wasn’t leaking because it would make a mess. Every time I came she assured me it wasn’t leaking yet.

    We had a story when we were kids. The pumping station at our reservoir was built in a big brick dome. Dad told us that a Bear lived inside it and came out to eat runaway kids.
    In 4th grade I wrote a report on it thinking it was real.
    We got a class trip to the Pumping station and We learned all about how it works and I learned that the story was over 50 years old. It started when a bear was trapped in the area, and kids were told the old bear died and we got a new one. My grandfather heard that story and told my dad who passed it along to us kids.

    Well I met Professor Woobidy and have known him for years. He now lives outside a small town in Wisconsin since his retirement, where he and his wife Wanda knit colorful earmuffs.

    It must be hard to roll a car window down while you’re playing a flute.

    The window acts as the opening in a whistle producing a subsonic tone, which you feel more than hear.

    To be fair there is a large portion of the human population that still believe in Santa, the tooth fairy, the easter bunny and some mythical deity that controls their lives and will severely punish them if they don’t toe the line set by arbitrary groups of people with dissimilar agendas.
    .
    Believing one of dad’s stories is fairly minor by comparison.

    The first seed of parental disillusionment is sown…
