A taste of what can be overheard in our house:
You know The Gutenberg Press is in the middle of it all.
Yep. You see Marco Polo decided he wanted an adventure and after he went all these places exploring China, he got home and he wanted to have all his adventures written up. He did exaggerate a bit though.
And so Gutenberg printed up all about Marco Polo and then Columbus read all about Marco Polo's adventures and he wanted to have adventures too and so he discovered America.
See, Gutenberg is in the middle of it all.
