How many adults ever use the word "arachnid"? I know spiders are arachnids and I still call them insects because I don't want to look like a complete nerd. That is one awesome 6-year old. Be glad she's saying stuff like that and not yet another speech about her My Little Pony collection or a summary of last week's episode of the Powerpuff Girls or whatever the hell it is that 6-year old girls do.
Um, you can call them bugs, but you don't have to intentionally mislabel them as insects just to not "look like a complete nerd." Besides it's not only nerds that know spiders aren't insects.
"How many adults ever use the word "arachnid"? I know spiders are arachnids and I still call them insects because I don't want to look like a complete nerd." Adults who don't want to look stupid. You can go on thinking that looking like a dumbass is better than looking even remotely educated if you want to, as it has become custom in this country, but I think I will go the "nerd" route.
In Greco-Roman mythology, Arachne (pronounced /ə-ˈræk-ni/) was a great mortal weaver who boasted that her skill was greater than that of Minerva, the Latin parallel of Pallas Athena, goddess of crafts. The offended goddess set a contest between the two weavers but, according to Ovid, the mortal weaver's subjects, the loves of the gods, was so offensive that Athena destroyed Arachne's tapestry and loom. Ultimately, the goddess turned Arachne into a spider. Arachne simply means "spider" (ἀράχνη) in Greek.
Wow, only FMLs display little kids saying intelligent things. AND they always do it in a belittling way like an adult would. I've never seen any little kids like this and yet there are so many FMLs about them?
Oh children are so sweet and charming nowadays. Now I'm wondering why I don't have any of my own! ^^
That's awesome! But I'm from London and I have never heard a child say "dumbass". It's too much of an Americanism.
