What we can or cannot do, what we consider possible or impossible, is rarely a function of our true capability. It is more likely a function of our beliefs about who we are.

I just really like Prince.
So my wife handed out a worksheet to her kindergarten students (none of whom actually speak English...yay U.S. Education System).
They had to draw one thing that was POSSIBLE...and another thing that was IMPOSSIBLE.
She hands me one of the worksheets.
First, let's check out the kid's 'Possible' picture:
Mommy has a baby.
Not only is this entirely possible, but it's more likely PROBABLE since inner-city mom's a pretty much pregnant constantly as they try to bleed the welfare system dry.
It's the American way.
Now, for this kid's 'Impossible' picture:
I give this kid an 'A' on creativity.
Although, honestly, I wouldn't put it past his mom trying to pass their cat off as a dependent at the Welfare office.
Here, kid...just in case...I made an alternate 'Impossible' picture for you:
Of course. I'm a Republican. It's how we do things.
Herlin would know that if he could read the newspaper.
But it's in English..so, you know...highly doubtful.
