an excerpt from the accurate event log of s’chn t’gai spock, age four and seven-eighths
"I refuse to engage in the behavior I have observed others employing with the infant.

I have instead attempted to instruct him in simple scientific concepts such as relativity and special relativity and multiple theories of space-time. He then poked my nose with a small, wet finger. The experiment was not successful."
