I happened to talk to a rocket scientist once who told me rocket science is not that hard really...

meltedchocolate Wed 11-Nov-09 16:39:30

yes but they would say that edam....

edam Wed 11-Nov-09 16:48:16

Maybe he should tell SMA? Let's report them to the ASA/Ofcom and make them justify the claim that rocket science requires brains and SMA will provide them. grin

2shoes boy may never be a rocket scientist, but he is a great joy to his mum and sister. (Adopts pious expression, and air of empathy of mum of similar sma free teenager)

Being serious for a moment, sadly that isn't true. Although it's a much bigger issue than food.

Sir Michael Marmot is currently leading a very detailed review of health inequalities - i.e. the gap between rich and poor. Saw a presentation by him with very persuasive data that showed that an intelligent child from a poor family will be overtaken by a dim child from a well-off family by age 10. Diet is presumably not the main issue there, but it was shocking to see the figures.

Nah, I know the poverty thing doesn't apply to Mr McQueen, that's why he remained incredibly bright despite the crap diet! (He's not alone in being fed carnation instead of formula/bm btw, very common in ye olden days - there was a thread here about it once. My dh was weaned on bones from the butcher, on the advice of the GP...)

edam Thu 12-Nov-09 10:54:30

But is dh jolly clever, Riven? (Truthfulness may be sacrificed if dh ever reads MN, of course...) grin

lol at Edam. My brother did astro physics at a 'top' university (don't want to identify him/me) and he was definitely forula fed.

He can be pretty thick about everyday things sometimes, I'll vouch for that.
