hippo-pot: awesomacious: The sweetest granddaughter btw the marshmallow test has been linked to class - kids from wealthier families are essentially more likely to trust that they will actually get the marshmallow if they wait whereas poorer kids are generally more used to like, if you have food, eat it. and being wealthier correlates to being more successful later in life because our system is broken. so THAT’s probably why the marshmallow test is a predictor - because it tells you who is wealthy, not who is innately primed to be successful Classic correlation does not equal causation: What is the loveliest thing a child has ever said to you? Richard Muller, Prof Physics, UC Berkeley, author "Now, The Physics of Time" Updated Aug 2, 2017 Originally Answered: What is the loveliest thing your child has ever said? "Would you like one, Grandpa?" OK- it was not my child but my 3-year-old granddaughter, but I still think it counts. I had read about the marshmallow test. You give a child a marshmallow, and then say that if she (Layla, in this case) could keep from eating it for 10 minutes, you'll give her a second. So I tried that test with my granddaughter (not with marshmallows, but with chocolate, which she likes much more) According to extensive experiments, children who "pass" the "marshmallow test" are far more successful in later life. They have learned a fundamental truth in life, that delayed gratification can lead to a far better long-term outcome. She sat and watched the chocolate. The 10-minute hourglass finally emptied, and she had succeeded. She asked for her second piece of chocolate. I gave it to her, and she now had two in her hand. That's when she looked up at me and asked, "Would you like one, Grandpa?" Needless to say, from that moment on I would readily give my life for her. 1.3m views View Upvoters View Sharers hippo-pot: awesomacious: The sweetest granddaughter btw the marshmallow test has been linked to class - kids from wealthier families are essentially more likely to trust that they will actually get the marshmallow if they wait whereas poorer kids are generally more used to like, if you have food, eat it. and being wealthier correlates to being more successful later in life because our system is broken. so THAT’s probably why the marshmallow test is a predictor - because it tells you who is wealthy, not who is innately primed to be successful Classic correlation does not equal causation

Thats so cute tbh: toodrunktofindaurl my brother is getting married and i'm so excited to fulfill my destiny as the embarrassing drunk gay sister who flirts with the bride for the entire ceremony toodrunktofindaurl i'm gonna yell "RUN AWAY WITH ME" to her during the vows toodrunktofindaurl there are people out there genuinely worried that I'm gonna steal my brother's bride away the day of their wedding.. i'm laughing. I've known her since I was born, we just love annoying the shit out of my brother and this "you picked the wrong sibling" joke has been going on for as long as I can remember. The whole family is in on it. The three of us are super close, she's always been family. Also we are really bad at romantic weddings (my Mom wore jeans at my Dad's and hers, signed a bunch of papers and then got blackout and my brother and his girlfriend p won't even have a "real" ceremony, just a cele- bration between friends and family. I love my brother and he already knows I'm gonna pull some stupid stunt, it's what we do. His girl friend is usually the one to initiate these shitty jokes, I wouldn't be surprised if she was the one to stop the "ceremony" to say some shit like "WAIT THIS IS THE WRONG SIBLING please don't take any of this seriously Imao that said, i'm definitely showing up half naked to her bachelorette party as the "surprise strip- per" with a sash that says "the sibling your should be marrying" and a shitty plastic tiara toodrunktofindaurl UPDATE 1) for people confused about the "I've known her since I was born () she's always been family": She's the granddaughter of our parents' neighbors, we all grew up together and my brother and her have been in love since they were babies. He held her hand as she made her first steps, they even have a picture on their wall of the moment before she first tried to get up ITS OFFICIAL, I'M GONNA BE MY BROTHER'S BEST MAN. AND YOU KNOW WHAT THE BEST MAN DO? A SPEECH Everything is going according to plan vantwinblade If you are the best man you need to get a sword systlin This is true it's only logical.
