Thanks to this post I know know the meaning at 43!
hell, I am 53.5 and STILL don't know what that means!
Here's another over 40 who did not know. Although I figured it had somehting to do with eggs, what with the "ovi" and the picture of the egg and all.Smart kids!
Off to look it up now...
Did you ever see the Sesame St song "Let's Lay an Egg?" Birds do it.Bees do it.(Other egg-laying animals I can't remember) do it.Let's lay an egg!
My fifth grader came home last month saying, "Mom, how can light be both a particle AND a wave???" I said, "Honey, there are a lot of people still working on their PhD's over that one."They've learned all sorts of stuff about electricity and sound that we didn't learn until AP classes in high school back in my ancient day.
Wow! That's a very interesting project! Wish I'd seen that when I was teaching! Oviparous? I know it now.
Crap. Suddenly my campaign to get my blog upgraded from an elementary school reading level seems... fruitless.
"Knock knock; who's oviparous?"that is ALL kinds of awesome. I laughed out loud at that one. (I think I learned "oviparous" in high school but I was on the science track). I have to say, though, I'm trying to come up with some kind of joke-worthy rejoinder to "Who's oviparous"?
A woman in the midst of successful fertility treatment? (sez the woman who had twins....)
I would have probably thought they made it up ;-)If I only had a brain...
I just learned from my kindergartener that not all whales has one blow hole, some has 2.
so those whales are, um, bi-blow-iparous? (;
I didn't know until I was 47. That's next year, if anyone's counting.I don't have time to look it up this year.
Ummm...I think I need to go back to Elementary school.
Just now learned it at 33. Can't wait to see what my 3-year-old starts teaching me...
I'm not sure if bi-blow-iparous is the official term for it. Better check with the future scientist... :)
bwahahahahahaMy kindergartener knows that bats use echolocation to find their food, and that they are nocturnal. And that we are diurnal.These wacky kids today.
