And most of the time they are not naïve; they are trying to make us look foolish trying to answer ...read more

You see, Alice sees a white rabbit with a pocket watch, taking it itself, scampering into a hole in the ground, and she gets up, curiously follows it: “The rabbit-hole went straight on ...read more
