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."
