Part of the fun of hanging out with my offspring for part of the day is the entertaining conversations we get to have. When he was younger, he had some awfully adorable misconceptions that resulted in a lot of fun. Now that he’s older, his discussions have become more sophisticated.
Younger son: “Mom, have you ever wondered how Thor’s hammer generates lightning?”
Me: “Not really.”
Younger son: “It’s Asgaardian science!”
Me: “I bet they took a giant tesla coil and shrunk it down to fit into Mjolnir.”
Younger son: “But can Tesla coils create thunder clouds?”
Me: “I don’t think so.”
Younger son: “Oh. I suppose that’s just for dramatic effect.”
Me: “Maybe the hammer has some kind of weather control device?”
Younger son: “I bet it has something to generate static. That’ll attract particles and cause condensation in the air.”
Me: “That might work. It’s amazing how the Asgaard figured out how to shrink all that stuff down into a hammer, isn’t it?”
I think we need to work on doing a Mjolnir prototype for a science fair project.
