They say there are no stupid questions. However, it is self-evident that there are stupid people, and that they must at some point ask questions. I am one of those people, and these are my questions.
If one bird in the hand is better than two in the bush, then how much is a bird in the stomach worth?
They say you can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar. Why are people so intent on catching flies?
Some people use the expression that something/someone is "as fast as [crap] through a tin horn." First, who tested the speed of this? Where was the data published? What was the shape of the horn? What the consistency of the crap? There are so many questions here.
Second, why do people assume that others would know about how fast crap travels through a tin horn?
This will suffice for now. Please help.
