[child] More wisdom of the Child

Sundry remarks by the_child in various contexts over the past few days:

“We work around time, because time doesn’t work around us.”

“I wish everybody was rich. Or maybe for world peace. But it wouldn’t be peaceful unless everybody had the same amount.”

“I ate so much popcorn at the movies that I couldn’t feel my lips any more.”

Plus yesterday we had a startlingly insightful discussion about the construction of bridges, materials loading, and the principles of engineering design.
