I have been following this team my entire life, and never have I seen this... - Nucks Misconduct

This year's Canucks are better than any other in the team's history. They've clinched first place in the Conference, and no one else in the west has even clinched a playoff spot.

I am 4 years old. Ask me anything.

There's an "Ask Me Anything" on Reddit, where people can submit questions to a 4-year old boy.  His dad will read the (appropriate) questions to his son, and type the son's answers.  AWESOME!!!

Some of my favourite questions are: 

Question: What do you think about the world?
4 year old: I think it's pretty good, but not if you're alone or scared or dead or something like that.

Question: Magnets, how do they work?
4 year old: They get paper clips to come to you.

Question: Four Axe Cops vs. one Dinosaur Soldier - who would win in a fight?
4 year old: The four axe cops, because there's 4 of the ax cops and they could all attack him at once and there's nothing he could do about it. Cause there's 4 of them.
