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.

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