Dinner and Google

I tried to resist interrupting dinner, but I jut had to google something in the midst of our conversation. We were talking about world population, food, and such, and I needed to know which country had the most arable land by area.

It took a little longer than expected to find the answer. The first search came up with arable land as a percentage of country land mass. The top three?

Yeah, I'm a bit surprised, too.

But arable land by area?
United States
Russian Federation

Okay. Back to dinner.

The conversation evolved to Christianity and capitalism. Which led to Hubby pulling Novak's "The Spirit of Democratic Capitalism" off of the shelf and J9 begging to read it. . .

Oh yeah, we have conversations like that all the time around here.

For a change last night we made some body function jokes and talked about movies. Don't want the kids to get too uppity!

One area that I'm just avoiding, as a mother-of-boys, is the whole bodily function humor thing. Now, my boys are all boy. But somehow we've been able to avoid certain topics. And I am soooo thankful.

Maybe it's that homeschooler lack-of-socialization to blame.

They'll probably have to deal with their bodily function repression with a therapist.

Aw heck, my oldest learned how to make certain "arm pit noises" (I'm sure you can guess) at CHURCH, for crying out loud! That was the day I said, "Who needs public school?????"

*rolling eyes*

I am thoroughly envious of your boys' restraint. Neither my husband or I are crass (in my own opinion!:) ) or talk like that...which seems to make the boys' all the more interested in it. Forbidden fruit, I guess. :)
