This week:

All hail youth! And spook.
smiley - cheerssmiley - spacesmiley - spacesmiley - ok

As h2g2 evolves and grows, it naturally attracts new and younger researchers.
There have been several conversation threads lately expressing some concern that the site is dumbing down to pubescent levels. smiley - wizard Well, duh!

So before we feature some very young writers to prove how wrong it is to assume kids only wanna talk trash, here are some facts that ought to be kept in mind, in no particular order:
Many of the 'adult' researchers who have been here for more than two years, myself included, are simply running out of things to talk about.

Many older researchers fail to see that new threads started by younger people are just as valid as many of the older conversations.

It is only natural that the newer researchers would generally be younger and that they will want to discuss issues of interest to the young.
Yes even 'trivial' things.

Because many older researchers have left, either in frustration over some cause or situation or just from sheer boredom, there are simply fewer of them to talk to.

And there is some hope that all the 'young ones' who joined two or three or even four years ago are now much, much more mature. smiley - winkeye
So let us celebrate youth!
smiley - cheers

U208224 is just thirteen (13) years old.

She recently wrote a very interesting piece on Castles which brought much positive comment in Peer Review and the usual assortment of 'helpful criticism' which U208224 tried at first to absorb and accomodate. Not much has been seen of U208224 lately and by default her entry found itself in the Flea Market.

Last week we introduced you to
She too is young, of university age but with a wisdom that is ancient. She is proud and happy to share something of her unique world view as an aboriginal American. Some of her entries will quite 'naturally' upset your own desensitised and 'civilised' vision of the Cosmos, ultimately for the better.
smiley - ok
As long as she is willing to share with us her native American culture we'll continue to feature her writing and here is another example:
