Today, my daughter, who was born in late 2000, mentioned how amazing it is that she'll be alive during the year 3000. I asked her exactly how old she thinks she'll be by then. She said, "Thirty, duh." I've screwed up as a parent, so very badly. FML

Did you ask her the explain this logic? I want to know her secret & live until the year 3000. You never know OP, she could be the next Albert Einstein.

What if OP's daughter created a time machine and plans on traveling to the year 3000 when she turns 30? And she can bring all of their technology and solutions to our time and creates a paradox where our past is more advanced than their future and therefore creates a cycle where the future's ultra advanced technology comes to our time and makes the future even more advanced? BOOM MINDFUCK

I was thinking the same thing.

I'm sorry, but I can't allow that. It could rip a hole space and time the size of Belgium.

Doctor! Is that you?

No! Nobody blink! Dont look away and dont blink!

I think this qualifies as mental masturbation because I fucked my own mind writing that...

I love how this tread has turned into a DW conversation, totally disregarding how the woman's kid cannot do math hahaha.

#39 No, this is Patrick!!

ill call matha Jones so she can help you doctor

Looks like we've already found 13!

Exterminate!! Exterminate!!!!!

28 - I think your picture needs updating. :)

@19 GREAT SCOTT!

My theory is, that analogy isn't quite relative.

that was so awesome!!! that was like a mind fuck x3,000 teehee. (being serious)

Can't fix stupid OP

Maybe she thinks she's a vampire that ages 1 year for every 10 that pass

Shouldn't it be a futurama thread instead of doctor who? Just saying. (Nothing against DW)

Sort of a necropost, but going to the future and bringing back advanced technology would create a paradox. If the tech is brought back to the present and "invented" here, it won't have to be invented in the future. If it isn't invented in the future it won't exist to bring back here. Simple cause and effect.

She's thinking outside the box

We're still thinking 2000 and late, she's on 3000.

She's still young.

Hes right, late 2000s means 2007 onward. She cant me older than 7 years old. So fuck u op, for thinking that your daughter couldnt do math at that young age. If she was 12, that would be an fml. Six years old? U are a horrible parent, but for a different reason. And whats with the whole, "ive completely failed as a parent" bullshit? Still 12 more years. Get off this site you attention seeking whore. I hate you op.

He said late 2000, not 2000's

Late 2000? o_o

I'd consider late 2000 to be 2005 or later, so at most OP's daughter would be 8? I don't see this to be absolutely terrible if her daughter is that young.

Late 2000 means in the last months of 2000....how is it 2005? So, she is almost 13.

#3, yes, she's 12 years old. She may have turned 13 in the past month or so. It didn't say "late 2000's" which would have made her less than 8.

She said late 2000, not 2000s. Late 2000 would be June-December 2000. So, OP's daughter is 12 or 13. O.O

Gotcha, just read it wrong :)

While we're at it, can we talk about how 2000 was 13 years ago? I mean, really?

You mean 1990 wasn't 10years ago?! Gets me every time.

Maybe she will jump into one of those freezers from Futurama in 17 years. After about a 1000 years, she will still have the body of a 30 year old!

August to December of 2000

Faith in humanity -200 pts.

Leave these comments for ifunny.EDIT: actually, just dont comment these at all.

No faith in humanity, exhibit A.

Yes, it is completely rational to lose faith in humanity because of one person.

just wait a minute, exhibit B onwards might be really bad!

see comment 12, replying to comment 4.

It's not always parenting that screws kids up. Kids just have a different logic than adults. If you explained it to her, then you're not a bad parent. Letting her continue to believe something that's false would make you a bad parent.

I guess all those parents who say Santa, the Easter bunny, and the tooth fairy are doing Satan's work.

She was born in late 2000, meaning she's almost 13. She should be smart enough to know that she won't be alive then.

That is true, though we are talking about a twelve to thirteen year old teenager here, and not some kid in elementary school. So some basic concepts of mathematics should exist. Anyway, I guess she won't go to MIT.

89 - How are you so sure that science won't progress and drastically prolong life?

How did you screw up as a parent? She's 13 and just simply miscalculated. It happens to everyone.

Miscalculating by ~970 years is normal? She's 13, she should know how wrong she was by now.

Well, less than 970, but you get my point.

Maybe she had a massive brain fart and thought 3000 was 2030.

She screwed up because by the age of 13, with an IQ of 70, which is the IQ for a retarded person, she should know that from 2000 to 3000 is exactly 1000 years. I know a few people who are retarded and can tell you that.

^Tf you talking about

Really #124 because there is no such thing as a retarded person. A person can have autism or down syndrome, but they are not, nor will they ever be, retarded. Op's daughter... Just lacks any form of intelligence

154 - Um, there most certainly IS such thing as someone being retarded. I know a few people who are mentally retarded. My mother's old friend's daughter is 35 but her mind set is of an 18 month old. Even though the word "retarded" is thrown around a lot there is definitely such thing is as MR. I don't know where you got the idea that retardation isn't real.

I think the term "retarded" is obsolete in that context.

Perhaps OP hasn't mastered the art of sarcasm? (: at least I hope that's the case, for the sake of humanity

My name's Kailey too, spelled the same way :)

Hahah, someone else who knows the frustration of not finding their name on gift shop souvenirs (:

It's impossible to find "Liam" on those too...

"Daisy" also tends to be hard to find ._.

Try finding "Zeus". Gawd. The ladies appreciate it though. ;)

Hell, try finding Smitty Werbenjagermanjensen.

try finding Ellie...

HowAreYouToday 34

try finding Howareyoutoday I mean really its impossible

Tiernan isnt that common either...

Maybe she'll be a successful politician. Apparently they're not required to know math, either.

What do politicians and sperm have in common? About one in every 500 or 600 million have a chance at becoming a human.

People who become politicians gravitate towards positions of power. They are by nature narcissistic, arrogant, and pathological liars.

My god... :/ you didn't fail, she's just that stupid.
