Pretend Play Diaries

This was today with firstborn:

There once was a mean wolf, who was battled and no longer exists. But years later, animals are disappearing. The only evidence: rainbow-colored paw prints.

It turns out, it’s the wolf’s son. Who got super powers when he was a lonely pup surviving. He also had powers to control the weather and could shoot rainbow colored lava out of its mouth like a dragon.

Luckily, there was a Barbie with water powers (like DC’s Mera) who defeated the wolf.

What if every criminal, was once a child, who we, as a society, failed to give the proper tools?

Does that mean as access to education and quality of education both rise simultaneously, crime will proportionally tend to zero in an asymptotic kind of way? Asymptotic because theoretically or probabilisticaly, crime would never be literally zero. It would most like be like in Bellamy Foster’s utopian novel Looking backward, where crime, though rare, still occurs, and is known as atavisms, or things of the ancient past that now and then pop up.

JK Rowling made sure wizards were ignorant due to their prejudices… just like us…

Look at this excerpt from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban:

Shouldn’t wizards know what guns are? Think about it… Wizards could be understood as another species of homo sapiens. Homo magicae, or something like that. Now, two advanced species are coexisting within one planet, one unaware of the other; one aware and in hiding. You would think those in hiding would want to stay as informed as possible regarding the other species. Specially since previous encounters revolved around burnings in stakes, and this belligerent species now has nuclear arsenals at its disposal. Yet, the paper needs to clarify for the average homo magicae what a gun is. Not surprising, considering how little interest most wizards gave to the Muggle Studies course at Hogwarts. So now that I think about it, it actually makes perfect sense. JK Rowling made sure wizards were ignorant due to their prejudices… just like us… #harrypotter #prisonerofazkaban #mugglestudies #stanyoucreep #personalspacestan #privacy #goodmanners
