Insight into my childhood:
In middle school or whenever you learn about absolute zero, I came home and explained to my mother what I had learned. She told me I was wrong cause God was bound by no absolutes and could always make anything colder. I argued (as well as I could) about the mechanics and how it couldn't get any colder.
My mother smacked me.
Lesson: No matter how crazy your parents are, if you wait long enough, they will end up being right.
The real lesson after reading the article: Your parents are almost always wrong.
