This pearl is my own kid’s. Couldn’t resist sharing.
As we are looking at one of the terrific presentations of A.P.P., called “One” (you can find them here: Encyclopedic Knowledge – Mathematics), we encounter a portrait of George Washington. I can’t resist some of the forbidden testing:
“Hmm, do you know who is this?”
“Sure! This is George Washington.”
“And… I forgot who he is.”
“Mom, he discovered Belorus,” – enlightens me my three year old.
???!!! Belorus? I bet Washington would’ve been very surprised to hear about such an amazing achievement! I definitely was. Just as some of our Belorussian friends.
