As is traditional for schoolchildren at this time of year, R. was asked to put together a list of things for which he was thankful.

His list featured: bacteria, elements, electricity, and equal rights.

He expressed some confusion at his peers who mostly expressed appreciation for their families, pets, media devices, and sports.

And much as there's a teeny bit of wry sadness at "Mom" not making the short list, I have to admit, in the grand scheme of things, bacteria are really more important.

I am reminded of Orson Scott Card's Secular Humanist Revivals (from back before he, as ursulav so eloquently put it, lost his shit).

"Do you believe!?!" "YEES!!!" "NOOOO you people! You reply, "IN WHAT???" "

he'd hand out 3x5 cards to te audience, saying that you can't be a church without a collection plate, so he is collecting what people believe in.

Gravity, pi, and a few other things along those lines were in the list on the tape I heard...
