Today Adam showed me his science experiment from his homeschool co-op. They all grew beans in petri dishes. He happened to be goofing around with his green marker and colored one bean all over. Guess what? He checked them today and most are "literally exploding with life" as he says, and that one bean didn't grow and is molding.
Of course this is just a kid's science experiment and it was just one so it could be a total fluke but we thought it was funny.
We may try to recreate this experiment again but with more beans and just see what happens.
