Kids say the darndest things, and in this case, "darndest" is "tragic truth about the state of the environment and the lack of sustainable solutions for natural resources after centuries of total disregard." Redditor Carlamon_ster posted this test answer from a kid that you will enjoy as much as the teacher did (a lot).
"Suppose you wanted to build a house on this land and still protect its natural resources," the question asks, "What could you do? How would it protect the natural resources?"
The kid cleverly answers:
You can just forget about the house.
You'll have to laugh or else you'll cry.
