Here is the conversation:
The Boy:When that giant window breaks in Empire Strikes Back - why did Luke and all that stuff fly out? Were there giant fans?
Me: Ummm, no (shuffles to fill coffee) ummmm.......it was a pressurized room. It's called pressure - outside the window was just like, oh like high altitude atmosphere ....(gets coffee) you know, like on a plane.
The Boy: Oh you mean like, if you get a hole in a plane?
Me: Yes exactly - like if there is a hole in a plane you get sucked out until the pressure stabilizes or something.
The Boy:Unless you hold on.
Me: Ummm, I don't know that you CAN hold on. It depends on the pressure I think which would probably have something to do WITH the altitude but I'm not sure.......
The Boy:No, you just hold on if that happens.
Me:I'm not sure that works.
The Boy (insert Disgusted Tone): Mom, I SAW Goldfinger. Goldfinger got sucked out and James Bond held on. That's how it works. You just hold on.
Me: (surrenders to six year old logic) Yes. I'm sure that's it.
The Boy: Luke Skywalker never saw Goldfinger - because it wasn't made yet. Star Wars was a long time ago, remember?
Me: Yes, and Far Far Away.
How can you argue?
