Not scale able


“Look Daddy! The spinosaurus was bigger than an elephant! I knew it!”

That’s when I decided that I’d try to explain the notion of scale to Luca.

With diagrams, and a measuring tape, and more diagrams, and measuring the bike, and drawing it at a scale of 1:10, and measuring Luca, and drawing him at a scale of 20:1, and comparing both, and more diagrams.

I’m exhausted. Can’t wait to go back to my copy and paste routine.

Scale? I was as successful as Father Ted in his explanation of the difference between small and far away  The kid still has no notion of scale.

He could be an investment banker in later life I suppose…
