Parents Share Which Questions Their Kids Asked That Not Even Google Could Answer

Kids ask the darnedest questions.


Remember being young and filled with curiosity and imagination? The world is a confusing place, and when you're a child, you can't help but to ask questions to adults to try to better understand it. But a kid's logic isn't like an adults, and sometimes a youngster's thought process can leave us grown ups dumbfounded.

Redditor u/rivergame asked parents about the craziest questions that their kids have asked them. Questions so strange, that even Google can't answer!

10. Would a dinosaur care to know about us?

"Not my child but my little cousin asked me did dinosaurs know humans could be fat"

9. You never truly know your neighbors

"I got really excited the other day when my 7yo asked me why some trees lose their leaves in the winter but 'pine trees and other spiky trees' keep theirs. I did a brief explanation about the difference between deciduous and coniferous trees and how chlorophyll is collected and stored. It went great. He immediately followed it up with, 'How do we know that some cities and houses actually have real people in them and aren't really just full of plastic cut outs that look like people?'"

8. If your coworkers are cool - the employee bathroom


"She asked me if employees come to their work on their off day, do they get to use the employee bathroom or the customer bathroom."

"My 4-yr-old asked me, 'How many arms does an octopus have?'

'Eight,' I replied.

'Hmm, let's ask google,' my son said, doubting the veracity of my answer.

'Fine,' I say. 'OK Google, how many arms does an octopus have?'

'Six,' she replies.

Aughhhhhhh. Thanks a lot, Google."

5. She's going to love Ancestry DNA


"My niece, 5 at the time, asked me who was the first mother.. I was confused and asked 'what do you mean? Your mother's mother?' And she goes, 'no, my mother's mother had a mother, and then she had a mother too, but how far does it go, who was the first mother?'"

4. I ask this question daily


"'Come on baby, it's time to get dressed and get out of bed'

'We do this every day. Why, Mama?'

Good point, go back to bed."

3. Pee hose



"'Mom why don't I have a pee hose like the boys?'

I laughed so hard, I couldn't come up with a legit answer."

2. Perhaps recycled is the best?

"My cousin who's like 4 asked me at a family gathering 'what's the best paper?'

Months ago and I'm still wondering what he meant"

1. Why isn't Spider-Man more realistic?

"My little cousin once asked why Spider-Man doesn't shoot webs out of his butt like a normal spider. I still don't have an answer for him."

While starting a family and having children is a goal that many people have, some do not realize that it's not easy, fun, and loving one-hundred percent of the time. Rather, it's expensive, exhausting, and hard, though it might be worth it in the end.

With this in mind, people shared what they felt were the hardest hurdles of their parenting.

Positive emotions are high among people in the blossoming phase of relationships.

Everything seems more romanticized for people in love due to the amorous joy in their hearts–which also influences their desire to frequently get it on under the sheets–or any other daring location in the heat of the moment.

But for those who've declared "'til death do us part," devoted couples may find that they are not always on the same wavelength sexually compared to when they first met.

There are a number of things people partake in spite of the known possible ramifications they have on their health and safety.

Up to and including smoking, bungee-jumping, recreational drug use, or simply bike riding without a helmet.

Indeed, even though they know that doing any or all of these things could possibly lead to their death, they do it anyway.

Sadly, even though many people go out of their way to avoid doing these things for that very reason, that still doesn't mean they keep themselves completely out of danger.

Sadly, there are a surprisingly large number of things that lead to an even more surprising number of deaths each year.

Frighteningly, these are things that the majority of the world's population does on an almost daily basis.

When Americans visit a foreign country, they tend to notice immediate cultural differences from the minute they step off the plane.

Unique bathroom designs, how you might have to be more specific when ordering coffee in Australia, how many businesses in Spain tend to shut down for a few hours to take a siesta.

Needless to say, this goes both ways, as when people from all over the world visit the United States, they tend to be surprised and amazed by a number of things.

Ranging from the amusing, such as portion sizes and ineffective tea brewing (at least for the Brits) to the truly baffling (HEALTHCARE).
