James Bond: Super Spy, Life Coach
Breitbart ^

Posted on 09/30/2012 7:13:05 PM PDT by Perdogg

A few weeks ago a minor scandal occurred in our household when my wife discovered our 7-year old daughter had taken a bath with a turned-on space heater nearby. Almost as disturbing was the fact that we didn't initially know how to explain electricity to a 7-year old.

Almost as disturbing is this dummy’s belief that a space heater can suddenly levitate off the floor and drop into a bath tub ten feet away.

Most of life’s essential lessons can be learned by watching James Bond movies. Sure, the Bond franchise offers great action movies tailor-made for guys, but it is amazing how much smarter a viewer is after having seen a Bond film.

Ever get pushed out of an airplane at 20,000 feet without a parachute? No problem: find a guy with a parachute nearby and go get his chute. That happened in "Moonraker."

If someone ever tries to kick you with a dagger-tipped shoe, grab the nearest chair and impale them on a wall nearby until you can do something else to defend yourself. That nugget can be found in "From Russia With Love," and you never know when you will need to know that maneuver.

"Thunderball" revealed that a spear gun works just as well on land as it does underwater. Who knew? And if you come across anyone with a huge set of stainless-steel teeth in their mouth, as in "The Spy Who Loved Me" and "Moonraker," be careful. Those choppers can probably be used to kill a human!


I sense.....sarcasm.

But not nearly as disturbing as your criminal ignorance of what children are capable of doing on a regular basis.

My wife hates it when I watch old James Bond movies and always has. We were diving in the South Pacific one time and she pointed out what she thought was a very pretty fish. It was pretty.....pretty f@#$ing dangerous! It was a lion fish. After her second attempt to touch this "deadly" creature, I grabbed the back of her BC and dragged her away.

We surfaced a few minutes later and I informed her that her pretty fish had venomous spines. She gave me a typical "How was I supposed to know that. How did you know that?"

"James Bond, The Spy Who Loved Me" I replied.

THE SPY WHO LOVED ME was perhaps Roger Moore’s best Bond film...

I’ve never seen a Bond film but I used to design electrical systems. So, how to explain electricity to a 7-year old child? Tell her it is ‘magic’. (That is what a science teacher once told me.)

What you can tell your daughter is this: electricity can keep you warm, play music, or like a snake bite to kill you. It is dangerous magic that must be respected. Most of all, electricity never mixes with water. If she wants the heater in the bathroom, let mommy or daddy turn it on and turn it off. That goes for the radio and the hair dryer, too.
