'[OT]: Touch screen --> Important..not..stop..ques'

     "The important thing is not to stop questioning."

Can this work in all situations though?

I mean, let's consider the following seemingly benign
scenarios :

a) One's wife - from the point where the wife arrives home
(walking in through the door) all the way down to the last
few minutes of the evening - is this a wise policy to literally
'question everything'?

b) When the kids arrive home, through suppertime and finally
onto their bedtimes - won't the kids at some point say: "gee
Dad, don't you have someone else you can question?"

c) The boss. I see this as a veritable mine field. Bosses
like *to* question but do not (generally) like even second
degree questioning-treatment (let alone the 3rd treatment).

At some point, one simply *must* have faith - no?

I can also see where this phrase, as a "modus operandi" could
lead to a serious state of paranoia ... but that's just me I
suppose <grin> ...

Well, as it was Einstein who said it, it must be true, mustn't it?
Do you have to take things so literally?
Did you know it was an Einstein quote?
How long did it take you to ... ?
.......

:-)

Can *I* stop questioning now ? :-)

Even Einstein can't have understood women, so No.

Yep.
Beat them at their own game.
Why daddy? Why?
Why is water wet?
Why don't sihes dronw?
Why ...?

Why?
Are you sure?
..........?

Maybe I shouldn't even send this?
Will they realise I am joking?
Why didn't I go to bed an hour ago?
What if Einstein ws wrong?
Or Darwin ? :-)
