A science lesson?

Tonight we got to talking about electricity at the table during supper. We went through different examples of conductors and insulators by naming different objects. Then the 13 year old asked the10 year old if people were conductors or insulators. The 10 year old’s response “Conductors- Harriet Tubman conducted the Underground Rail Road, there are music conductors and train conductors”. Seriously, this is how her mind works! Some people probably think she’s being sarcastic or witty, but to her this is completely logical. We did continue on with our discussion, my electrician brother texted me and told me to let her know we were conductors because of the large amount of water in our body.We also discussed how there are metallic minerals (iron, etc) in our diets thus, in our bodies which conduct electricity.
