Smarter Than A 4th Grader

A stranger was seated next to a little girl on the
airplane when the stranger turned to her and said,
"Let's talk. I've heard that flights go quicker if
you strike up a conversation with your fellow
passenger."

The little girl, who had just opened her book, closed
it slowly and said to the stranger, "What would you
like to talk about?"

"Oh, I don't know," said the stranger. "How about
nuclear power?", and he smiles.

"OK," she said. "That could be an interesting
topic. But let me ask you a question first. A horse,
a cow, and a deer all eat the same stuff - grass - yet
a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns out
a flat patty, and a horse produces clumps of dried
grass. Why do you suppose that is?"

The stranger, visibly surprised by the little girl's
intelligence, thinks about it and says, "Hmmm, I have
no idea."

To which the little girl replies, "Do you really feel
qualified to discuss nuclear power when you don't know
shit?" And she turned, and reopened her book.
