Three things: chocolate, learning, kids+funerals

Can’t stop eating this fudge slice

Any wildlife biologist knows that an animal in a zoo will not develop normally if the environment is incompatible with the evolved social needs of its species. But we no longer know this about ourselves… It is in this context [school] that we set out to research how human beings learn. But collecting data on human learning based on children’s behavior in school is like collecting data on killer whales based on their behavior at Sea World. From this article. This is something I think about a lot, with my son approaching school age.

This beautiful poem contains perspectives from both children and elderly.
