Kids Seem To Think That They Invented The Wheel…

Kiwi Daughter bought some earrings recently and proudly came to show off her purchase. “They are Infinity earings” she explained (although I already know that of course). As if to confirm any thought she might have as to my total ignorance she added “See how the loop folds back on itself like a figure of eight and doesn’t have an end? That’s why they are called Infinity earrings”. Hmmm maybe that was my cue to crawl back under the rock I must have been under my entire life… Of course I said nothing, just looked surprised (but not for the reason she thought I was) and murmured “oh…” I realise that I live a fourteen year old teenager and like others of her ilk she frequently appears to think that she invented the wheel… but just take a look at the design in this balcony safety railing… one of many examples where this repeating pattern can be found in some form or another.
