Happy Epistemic Moment for a Father

Our cheap Panasonic DVD player seems to be no longer streaming Netflix for some reason.  But we hadn't tried it for a few days (until I did just now).  My 5-year-old son, Samuel, and I got into a brief discussion about it, since he wanted to watch some shoot-'em-up Star Wars cartoon.

Me: Is the DVD player still not playing Netflix?
Sam: No, it's not playing Netflix.  We'll have to use the Wii.
Me: When was the last time you guys tried it?
Sam: I don't know.
Me: Then how do you know it still isn't working?
Sam:  Well, I don't knooooow it's still not working.  I just....I just....I'm thinking that it's still not working.

(Aside: Maybe Hume and Descartes were both on to something.)
