How do I explain?

How do you explain 'What is a magnet' to a 3.5 yrs old kid?
I tried explaining. He asked me 'is adhesive gum & magnet are same?'.
I took him out to shopping for magnets to practically show & explain the magnet and the difference between a magnet & adhesive gum. Surprisingly I couldn't get a magnet in any shop. Looks like magnet can be used to detonate a bomb and there is a restriction in selling magnets in shops now-a-days. :(

Another question I couldn't explain was 'why there are no dinosaur in the zoo' (when he saw the statue of dinosaur outside the zoo). How do you explain 'extinct' to a kid? I just told him that becuase of the bad habits all the dinosaurs are dead and there are no dinosaurs anywhere.

For the love of experience....

Last weekend I was crossing a check post in Andhra - Karnataka border, entering into Andhra side in my car. Police man in the check post saw me from 50 feet away and waived his stick to stop me. I did not have the registration & insurance papers at my car. Though I could have ignored that police man & drove away, I decided to pull over and pulled over after driving 100 feet away, just for the heck of experience to learn 'what worst could happen'. He never bothered to check my papers. Just with his broken tamil+telugu accent he asked me to pay 'entry fee' (you know what I mean!) of Rs.50. Ada devuda...!!!

Gone Green!!!

My recently acquired good habit is drinking green tea. Believe me it tastes so pathetic. First day I had, I almost threw up. But because of the benefits I am tolerating the taste and drinking every morning mixing with honey & lemon for the past couple of weeks now.

Benefits (source:

.......The main green tea benefits include helping with cancer, infections, high cholesterols issues, impaired immune function, cardiovascular diseases and rheumatoid arthritis. lowers cholesterols and aids in preventing heart attacks and strokes thanks that it prevents the formation of abnormal blood clots. This component also limit the negative effects of smoking and a diet with fat.
.........drinking green tea could help in dieting by allowing you to burn more calories. Also it can prevent tooth decay thanks that it is an excellent agent to fight bacteria!

Want to go green?
