Why can a snail slide over a razor blade without being hurt?

I am awed by their curiosity every single day... its so pure and true, a real hunger for knowledge.
And looking at them I sometimes blush for shame because comparing to theirs, adult`s curiosity is often just vanity... whishing not to know, but to talk... or would you travel overseas to the end of the world just for the sole pleasure of seeing, if you knew you could not tell it to anyone?
yellodog Pity you didn't do the razor trick, I've always wondered if it's true.

So true, kids are so thirsty for discovery while adults get bored with life thinking that they know already everything ...when the world is infinite !

miltonjacob perfect capture of the object(s) and the curiosity in the eyes of the kids. wonderful!
miltonjacob · 2009-06-01: 08:56
makaid Thank you for those words. I think a child's curiosity can sometimes reignite our own. But your question is so intriguing. Adults rarely do anything completely out of there own curiosity.
makaid · 2009-06-01: 13:38
longimanus thank you makaid for this honest answer... I was wondering why actually noone answers that question.
longimanus · 2009-06-01: 14:01
stormfish yes i would.

it's worthwile to see everything with your own eyes, even if it's just for urself. like your two gorgeous kids are examining this snail, we humans want to know how things are. curiosity might be vanity for grown ups very often, but if you save some of this children's urge to know, to understand... you will always want to find out about everything everywhere.

but i agree with you, sharing that knowledge wth others... for the sheer pleasure ofmaking them look in awe at you, is a surplus in happiness. we should always look out for the surplus... ;-)

????? Slide over a razor blade is not a great problem, but the question is: will can survive the snail after the children's investigation?.
Yes is the answer...if child's mother is looking for care.

Child is an temporary "litlle monster " condition. I'm not long for the old days. I have now a lot of curiosity whitout cruelty.

Good series. Very interesting shots, and teme.

Thanks. Enric

????? Very lovely set.
Children's curiosity at times can be dangerous for the "objects" of their curiosity unfortunately.
Yes, pure knowledge, but cruel, too. I experienced it with cats, lizards etc.
