Seriously. I HOMESCHOOL for pity's sake and we don't have cable, just dvds. We're Netflix Amish.
And they STILL somehow managed to find Pokemon, managed to get some old VHS from an overly indulgent grandfather, and now they all sit around and talk about Pokemon, or they have Pokemon sword fights, or they spend time memorizing Pokemon names....
It just goes to show, children are geniuses at whatever they consider importnat. Which means they COULD memorize scriptures, if they so chose, or if I could find the right leverage, but they choose instead to expend their amazing neural energies and potentials on third-rate anime.
For all that it was alarming how fast they got sucked into the Final Fantasy world after my DH let them watch FF7:Advent Children....at least that's a higher-caliber addiction.
