This morning:

DH: (grumblingly) Well, I have a _half_-charged phone...
DS: So... add another half [dumbass --ok, he didn't say that, but it's pretty clear he THOUGHT IT].

Later, building on the fact he seems to know what a half is...

DS: how do you build an equator?
ME: well, you don't really build it, it's an idea about something that already is. So think about the earth. Here's the north pole and half the planet. here's the south pole and the other half. Where they meet is what we call the equator.
DS: [audible kerchunk] Ooooooohhhhhh! ok.
[runs off holding his hands cupped together as per my demonstration mumbling about spheres and halves while a dozen people trip over him (we were in a mall).]

here ends about 12 days of trying to answer equator questions.

DS1: Hon, you already finished your homework
DS2: Quit it with the protesting already!
