A long time ago, a few of my sisters, told my wife, that when I was a little kid, I was always driving them crazy, by asking them questions about anything and everything. I always wanted to know who invented what, why and how. Keep in mind, that back in 1975, we didn’t have the internet, let alone search engines. All that we had were encyclopedias, but as with color television sets, not every family could afford them.
Anyways… I still remember one specific day, when I was around four or five years old and was watching TV with my father in the living room. I wanted to know who invented the television set and the camera that they used to televise the programs. But as crazy as it might sound to you today, what I really wanted to know was. What came first, the TV camera or the TV set? And how did the person knew, how to invent one, without having the other? Remember, I was only four or five years old at the time. But til this day, every time that I tell someone or think about the story, it puts a smile on my face, because after my father tried very hard to answer all of my questions, he got so frustrated, that he just yelled out “I DON’T KNOW!”. But don’t worry, he didn’t discourage me from being curious at all.
Right now I’m forty-nine years old and I’m still asking questions, the difference is, that the internet and search engines have helped me learn and understand a lot of things, that others are not interested in or are too afraid to even ask about. My point is, that if you ever come across a person who is always asking a lot of complicated, strange and or weird questions, don’t dismiss, push to the side, ignore, make fun of or even think that the person is crazy or weird. As a matter of fact, when my son was a little kid, just like me, he asked a lot of questions. The thing about it was, that I understood him 100%, because I saw my young self in him.
With that said! I am Audi 5000 y’all!
