Or she made an astute observation.
Uh huh. Wholly without any influence from listening to her parent's conversations; she's a design prodigy.

Why is it so hard to believe that she might actually notice a difference?

And why argue over a silly anecdote?

Which one of us is trying to draw attention, exactly? Which one of us actually contributes anything?

What “aesthetic incongruities and failings” are you referring to? Lots of repeating the same conclusions louder and louder, but without explication or substance.
Got it.

My apologies for having forgotten that you really need a rhyming picture book diagram that even your (naturally, of course, super-precocious*) daughter would understand at a glance.

I posted photos and commentary for a piece of antique porcelain. How is this “blatantly seeking attention” in a design thread?
Yeah, how is anything you ever do in any thread ever “blatantly seeking attention”, right?

As opposed to "blatantly seeking approval" or "blatantly seeking pedantry" or "blatantly seeking praise" or "blatantly seeking reactiins" or "blatantly seeking validation" or "blatantly seeking the last fucking word"? #TheFooMessages23,859

Fine lines, no doubt.

Just so I understand: you guys find this nut job’s ranting of equal or greater value versus my “blatant attention getting”? If so, I’ll just see myself out.

To quote FlyingMonkey (never in my wildest dreams did I ever...): PLEASE.


You know you never will though; even your threats and promises are always inauthentic and empty.

I'm uncomfortable reading any debate over one member's child's abilities. It's weird - can we not?

It doesn’t take a “design prodigy” of a five-year-old to notice whether more or less macaroni falls off a spoon.
Of course not!

Not when "dada" crams such "knowledge" regarding the new spoons down her throat at every turn.

What the fuck is wrong with you? Of all the crazies on this forum, you are really something else.
