Everything you've learned in school as "obvious" becomes less and less obvious as you begin to study the universe. For example, there are no solids in the universe. There's not even a suggestion of a solid. There are no absolute continuums. There are no surfaces. There are no straight lines.
Three English men were in a bar and spotted an Irish man. One guy said he wanted to irritate him. He walked over to the Irish man and tapped him on the shoulder. "Hey, I hear your St. Patrick was a sissy." "Oh really? Hmm, didn't know that." Puzzled, the English man walked back to his buddies. "I told him St. Patrick was a sissy and he didn't care!"

You don't have to run from me if you have a valid license!" "Yes, sir," replied the young man, "but my friend back there — well, he don't have one."
He is most fatigued who knows not what to do.
