The kid is not stupid, just innocent and a rookie. He is no longer a rookie, but he is still very afraid of cotton balls and klennex. Many have been tricked into the impossible sit up; The Kid is not the first. However, I cannot explain the tic tac toe incident... it has been a very long time since I've seen an Xs and Os game end in anything but a draw. The ninja on the mountain stuff is entirely my fault. I fed him the coffee that morning and he hadn't had any espresso prior to that day. It may have been his first coffee ever.
