When I asked grandpa if women ejaculated or if it was just urine, he gave me a puzzled look and said he wasn't sure. The next day, he told me it was probably ejaculate because it wasn't salty enough to be urine, and grandma nodded in approval. I'll stick with asking grandpa for advice from now on.

Silverstaff: I told my grandfather once that I'd learned in Science class that light takes 8 minutes to go from the Sun to the Earth.

My grandfather said that was a lie, a outright lie from the devil.  He said that "eyesight goes out to the sun and comes back in no time at all, none, it's instant, not 8 minutes, that's how fast the eyesight your eyes put out goes!"

Yeah, my grandfather tried to tell me to ignore science class in favor of believing that eyes emit "eyesight" which instantly travels at infinite speed out to something and back to let you know what is there.

My grandmother told me that when she was little (i.e. the 1920's) she had to worry about Indian attacks on her house.  She'd tell elaborate stories of Indian attacks, where they'd all be saved by brave Cowboys who rescued them from the evil "injuns".   There hadn't been Indian attacks in that area since the 1820's. . .and rural Kentucky was definitely not Cowboy territory.

They both also told me incredibly bigoted and racist things about the Japanese and black people.  My grandfather would threaten to spank me if I ever called them "Japanese" instead of "Japs", or called them "Blacks" instead of, well, the "N word".  Both my grandparents tried to act like that was the normal, everyday, regular way of talking about people of African descent.

 If Google had existed in the mid 1980's, I'd have rather been using that too.

So, you're Calvin's son?

But the current crop of grandparents are mostly boomers, so their advice and knowledge is super important stuff.

The internet is actually less racist than my grandfather.

If I were free to ask my grandmother about big hairy gay bears bareback anal sex and she'd pull out a box full of porn mags filled to the brim with high-res full color photos and hours of free video, then absolutely, she would not have been replaced by Google.  But it is, what is its.  When I need advice on looking ugly and talking slow, then I'll go to granny.
