The Dangers of Talking...


Recommended Posts

And now on an entirely different subject…


A stranger was seated next to Jim Killen on a domestic plane flight when the stranger turned to Jim and said, "Let's talk. . . I've heard that flights will go quicker if you strike up a conversation with your fellow passenger."


Jim, who had just opened his book, closed it slowly, and said to the stranger, "What would you like to discuss?"


"Oh, I don't know," said the stranger. "How about nuclear power?"


"OK," said Jim. "That could be an interesting topic. But let me ask you a question first. "A horse, a cow, and a sheep all eat grass. The same stuff, yet a sheep excretes little pellets, while a cow turns out a flat patty, and a horse produces clumps of dried grass. Why do you suppose that is?"


"Struth," said the stranger. "I have no idea."


"Well, then, sir..." said Jim Killen, "How is it that you feel qualified to discuss nuclear power when you don't know ****?". . . and re-opened his book to read. The rest of the flight was very quiet. :confused: 018_hug.gif.8f44196246785568c4ba31412287795a.gif
