A stranger was seated next to a pretty girl on an airplane when the he turned to her and said, “Let’s talk. I’ve heard that flights go quicker if you strike up a conversation with a fellow passenger.”
The pretty girl, who had just opened her book, closed it slowly and said to the stranger, “What would you like to talk about?” She really wanted to get on with her book, but decided to first deal with the stranger’s request.
“Oh, I don’t know,” said the stranger. “How about nuclear power?”
“OK,” she said. “That could be an interesting topic, but let me ask you a question first. A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat the same stuff – grass. Yet a deer 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?”
The stranger, visibly surprised by the girl’s intelligence, thinks about it and says, “Hmmm, I have no idea.”
The girl opened her book and began reading. After a few moments she raised her head and said, “Do you really feel qualified to discuss nuclear power when you don’t know shit?” She then continued reading with the smug satisfaction that she would not be disturbed again!
